Developer Bungie aims to bring Destiny up to a 1080p resolution output on the Xbox One following the release of the console’s latest software development kit.
It will still run at 30 frames-per-second, but the boost in resolution is reportedly attributed to the 10% increase in GPU power since last week’s back-end update on Microsoft’s console, Geoff Keighley was able to find out:
After @xboxp3 interview I’ve been asking devs about impact of new Xbox sdk on perf. Bungie says it will get Destiny to 1080p/30fps on XB1.

It’s not clear what sort of performance milestones Bungie was aiming for before the update, but it is clear that the GPU power initially reserved for the Xbox One’s Kinect sensor will now help boost the game’s pixel count on the console instead.
