Default ROTTR Xbox One X Enhanced

I was making a thread in anticipation of this, but it seems that Rise of the Tomb Raider is being listed as an "Xbox One X Enhanced" game already around Gamescom: https://twitter.com/Xbox/status/899371884411633664

One may remember PS4 Pro's options:
  • 1080p/60fps
  • OR 4K/30fps
  • OR "enchanced visuals" @ 1080p/30fps
I wonder if Xbox One X owners will have the same or more reconciled options.

*

Edit: similar elective display modes announced:
  • Native 4K: (full 3840 by 2160) for highest fidelity resolution (This mode displays the game in native 4K Resolution, on supported 4K TVs.)
  • OR High Frame Rate for the smoothest possible gameplay (This mode provides a higher framerate for a smoother gameplay experience.)
  • OR Enriched Visuals for stunning graphic upgrades (This mode enriches graphical features of the game for a lusher and more realistic experience and displays the game in 4K resolution using checkerboard rendering, on supported 4K TVs.)
    • Improved volumetric lights
    • Improved reflections
    • Enhanced foliage
    • Upgraded polygonal detail
    • Amplified texture filtering
In addition, New Xbox One X tech enhancements for Rise of the Tomb Raider are implemented (across the board):
  • HDR display support for more vibrant and accurate color representation technology
  • Spatial audio support, including Dolby Atmos®, for true 3D audio
  • Enhanced texture resolution for Lara Croft®, NPCs, and environments, leveraging additional memory offered by the Xbox One X
  • Improved anti-aliasing for immersive realistic details
Looks to be the definitive edition with a couple of high fidelity technical boosts the PS4 Pro hasn't seen

Q: What are the three visual modes available for Rise of the Tomb Raider on Xbox One X?
A: The three modes include:

Likely much higher. They aren't kidding when they say the Xbox one x is the most powerful console.

That's right, the Pro was the most powerful console for a while. I expect similar options to those of the PS4 Pro version, though maybe the XOX can pull off "Enhanced visuals" @ 1080p/60 FPS.

I am speculating this ^
i.e. enhanced visuals at 1080p/60fps OR 4k/30fps

Do not think they'll achieve all three enhacements i.e. enhanced visuals + 60fps + 4K... got to be some compensation somewhere. But maybe Xbox One X will handle two of the upgrades at a time vs the PS4 Pro's one?

I don't think that it'll be able to play RotTR with maximum graphics at 4k and 60 FPS. You need a pretty beefy PC to pull that off and the XOX is just an upgraded Xbox One.
