Eurogamer Confirms Mario Kart 8 Is 1080p And 60FPS Even In Two Player Split Screen

Online gaming publication Eurogamer has confirmed that Mario Kart 8 runs at 1080p and a blistering 60 frames-per-second. The game maintains the resolution and the 60fps even in two player split screen, which is quite impressive. Mario Kart 8 is due for release exclusively on the Wii U on May 30th.

“You probably knew this bit already, but Mario Kart 8 is looking like another polished racer from Nintendo. The game’s visuals are beautiful, 1080p and 60fps even in two-player split-screen, while new characters and weapons such as the Piranha Plant keep things feeling fresh amongst otherwise familiar surroundings.”

Thanks, David

        1. That’s because Wii U has the hardware that can do 1080p straight away. If you remember the GPGPU has 32Mb of low latency, high bandwidith eDRAM – that is how it renders 1080p.

          In fact because it’s got more than 32Mb, it could render it twice. It’s that fast and powerful.

          Like

          1. No, its ecactly the other way round- WiiU does indeed have 32 MB. BUT- instead of Xbox One, which can only use this for the GPU, WiiU can use it for CPU AND GPU- and- the biggest difference is- WiiU uses onboard High-End Compression (S3TC or such its called) which the gamecube used many years ago… So that means- WiiU is not only 32 MB Ram for GPU, but 6:1 compression – so that is about 120 MB or so- that allows it to run @ 1080p. E.g. if you run a game like Mario Kart 8 at 1080p with 2 players you seriously stress the GPU, and thus i guess 64 MB is used (with compression), and the CPU in the game will just sleep the most of the time ;) And Xbox One has no compression for the eSRAM. AND: eSRAM of Xbox One is much slower than WiiUs eDRAM.

      1. Look, I want the Wii U to succeed. I like the controller, especially enjoy the games, and I don’t even think the hardware is abysmal, but let’s give credit (or a lack thereof) only where it’s due. Xbox One being unable to run CoD:AW at 1080p, 60fps ≠ Xbox One being unable to run Super Mario 3D World at 1080p, 60fps. It’s not so simple as those numbers. The confounding factor is the subject game. Super Mario 3D World, while very nice to look at, has very simple textures, and very little going on in the field. Meanwhile, CoD has very complex, realistic textures and a very hectic environment. Come to think of it, in the very first stage of Super Mario 3D World, we can observe the Wii U struggling somewhat to keep up when two or more players use giant mushrooms and plow through the blocks and goombas on that one bridge, causing a significant framerate drop.

        Reiterating, I enjoy Wii U, and I LOVE what it’s software has offered to me so far, but in terms of power, if any Wii U game were, by some unlikely quirk of fate, ported to Xbox One, and done so properly, Xbox One would take any of Wii U’s games to new visual heights with ease.

        1. Mario 3D World was a rushed game, AAA, so you cannot expect that you have all 60 Frames left at 100% time, with 4 players-support! Mario 3D World does only use 1 CPU core and about i guess 5-10% of GPU-power at all. Well, it all depends on how much time you got for programming.

            1. I could say, it was not 100% optimized (e.g. no stuttering in 4-player mode), but only 50-75% optimized (e.g. no stuttering at least in 1-player mode and with 2 players). Well, its allways like that. Nintendo was a little rushed with the game, they said it themselves, that HD-games was too much work for them. And yeah it took them 2 years… That is a joke for such kind of game. Mario Galaxy 1 (!) took them nearly 3 years. Every month more counts. Hell, for a simple handheld-game (3DS)- Mario 3D Land, they needed nearly 2 years- do you really think its the same work for a grown-up homeconsole to develop? No, its not i can guarantee you.

              the game Mario 3D World uses only 1 cpu-core and thus is cheap to develop- but the ressources are limited. And- the optimization was not 100% complete, but at least a big fraction of that. But this leads to stuttering in some parts when you see games like Pikmin 3 etc. – its the same there.

              I guess when the game X- the mostwanted of all roleplay-gamers- wiil come out- it will be in development for more than 3 years. This is my guess.

And even the internetbrowser of WiiU is MUCH BETTER than even PS4s or Xbox Ones. The Problem of Xbox One is- its using bing – Uargh- and its slower! And- you don`t have many tabs there and you can only use that on the TV- whereas on WiiU you can take it with you and its much more comfortable- e.g. in my case, use it in the kitchen or even in the garden. On PS4 the problem is – it does not have more tabs! And its only on TV too. So you see now? The Gamepad makes things, even the shop-visit much more easier.

        3. Hahahaha- funny how you compare those two! You don`t know, that GDDR 5 is in fact Graphic-ram for PS4 too (that means, it has to share all bandwith, PS4 only has around ~100 GB/s bandwith for the graphics, the rest is for the CPU, e.g. 30 GB for CPU, and the last 40 GB is for misc), whereas the WiiU has its OWN graphics-ram, and which works not like the all-known PS4 with cheap X86-technology. The WiiU has over 500 GB/s of bandwith alone- for its graphics and CPU- there nothing has to be shared. The WiiU has compression, it used this on Gamecube, on N64 and even on Wii. And now- since 2012, it uses the newest high-end-compression in its graphics-ram. Thats around 6:1 ratio, which means, there fits at least 150 MB in it. The DDR 3 ram of WiiU only acts as a “data feeder”. And the point is- the eDRAM is MUCH FASTER than the GDDR 5- as eDRAM has much lower latency (which is good for CPU) and much higher bandwith as gDDR5.

          The eDRAM might be a bit tiny, but its only this if you don`t know how WiiU uses TS3C kind of texture/graphics-data-compression. 32 MB are enough for 1080p-graphics today, and even Intel plans to release its newest CPUs in 2014 with embedded eDRAM by standard (but- the con of Intel is- those eDRAM chips are NOT as high-performance as wiiU is, cause Intel cannot produce them- and Intel can only use those eDRAM chips for their embedded GPUs, not for the CPU itself).

          And- Even on the next high-end-graphics-generation- the GPUs will get stacked ram and sooner than you think eDRAM too.

          PS: No, gDDR5 Ram is standard since many years on PC high-end-graphics card. The Point is- this standard will change in 6 months from now on. The new standard will be “stacked ram” with Volta/Maxwell and embedded eDRAM-chips on the nextgen of Nvidia.

        4. It’s funny you should say that, considering the Xbone only has DDR3 8Gb RAM. You were using the PS4’s RAM (GDDR5 8Gb RAM) which is a lot better. Either way, the Wii U is by far a console to have more fun on. Sony and Microsoft have been doing the same thing for years, a slight bump in graphics, and slightly changing the controller. Granted they added more features to the consoles, a lot of them didn’t affect the way in which you played games. Everybody knows that both of the kinects were epic failures, so don’t go rambling on with nonsense saying that it added amazing and different features that changed the way the console feels, because half of the time you’re left screaming “Xbox on!” at it, while it sits idly by doing squat. I had the Xbox 360, and I enjoyed it for years and I was really excited to hear about the new Xbox coming out, until after the release. All the shitty features that they were going to have, yeah no thanks. Sure they changed them, only after they realised that Sony done it right and left microsoft scrambling for things to change to get some customers back. They dug a hole so they can sit in it, and you can join them. The only annoying part is that the Xbone is going to hold “Next-gen” back.

      1st there is X- and X looks even better than MK8
      2nd. there is Fast Racing Neo. And man, this will even get 4/8k textures. MK8 hasn`t got that. Alone this feature will make look MK8 like “Standard”. Well, MK8 of course looks good, but you have to be fair- MK8 is not the game to use WiiU @50percent load at all
      3rd- there will be Sonic Boom. ANd man, did you see that? Cryengine 3. Yes, coulb be even better than MK8. But again- MK8 looks good.
      4th- well were will be a physics-game for WiiU soom. and even this looks very good!
      5th and then there is Mario Kart 8 on my personal 5th place graphics-wise

  6. The reason this game runs at that is because of the low polygon simple environments. Any game can run at 1080p if the environments are made simple enough. Nintendo just copy pastes the same low polygon models (that look like N64 models lololol); trees, bushes, flowers, etc, everywhere. Just look at the same low polygon simplistic trees pasted everywhere. They even copy paste exactly the same windmill everywhere lololol. This area is a bit empty, let’s just copy paste another of those trees over here LOLOLOL! The 2D side scrolling launch Mario game ran at 720p, Donkey Kong TF also ran at 720p. The underpowered running on 7 year old hardware Baby U isn’t even capable of running a lame 2D side scrolling game at 1080p. Donkey Kong TF’s environments have much more detail than this which is why that run at 720p and this one is above that because of the simple low polygon models it has. But don’t worry though, Iwata will save the Baby U with his “new” QOL and “non wearable devices” approach LOLOLOLOL.

    6. you clearly don`t know what you are talking about!

      1st: Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze was 720p, and was made in more than 2 years from an HD-unexperienced company called “Retro” And no- Retro is not Nintendo. Its a 2nd-party if you would call it that. Yes, it belongs to nintendo, but Nintendo has their own sorrows, so they cannot run after their retro-studios. Thats why it has to be 720, to reach the 2 years of development-time-goal.

      2nd) Mario 3D World is not a side-scrolling game. It has sometimes a few points where it scrolls- yes- but even Mario Galaxy has that, idiot! Mario 3D World was developed in a little more than 2 years- that is not enough for 1080p-game. You would need at least 3 years for an 1080p-game- or- if not that- an team build of very experienced Nintendo-developers and you have many of them- to get a game running with 1080p in less than 2 years.

      3rd) Mario Kart 8 had only 2 years of development-time, which is clearly not enough for more details. The time just doesn`t fit. You have 1.5 years of concept work and making the things and assets which are needed, and then you have 0.5 years for optimizations. This is not enough for making more. Thus- MK8 does not use more than a fraction of WiiUs power. It only uses 1 CPU core and i guess- 20% of GPU-power at least.

      Mario Kart 8 should be 1080p- and if that is true- you cannot have more wishes for a 2 year development. It just takes much more time (e.g. 3 years, like X will have till the end of 2014) to make more details or to better optimize games.

    2. CPU Does not affect Frame-rate that much. E.g. in MK8 theres no complex physics, you know? Its not a “racing simulator” like C.A.R.S. is. so – no the CPU does not much in this game. It is even said, that Mario Kart 8 is only developed in 2 years, as it uses only one cpu-core. One CPU-core of WiiU is 25% more powerful than Wii-broadway-processor, that said, this counts WITHOUT the more of cache, without the eDRAM, without optimization. With the eDRAM (which WiiU CPU can make use of), with that much more of Cache- there is at least 80-90% more power.

      on PC today you can clearly see, that on 1080p-games, the CPU does not affect any more. The lower the resolution gets, the cpu gets more and more important.

Meaning 400 Euro without subvention- 100 euro is for the gamepad, 50 Euro is for the included game, around 200-250 euro is for the technical things itself (white WiiU = 200 Euro technical as it has a lot less flashmemory and cheaper kind of memory too and a lot of features is missing,e,.g. premium membership and accessoires, e.g. the sensorbar, black WIiU = 250 Euro technical costs). The WiiU MCM was guessed by specialists to be ~100 dollars worth of money. The rest- the 2 GB DDR 3-Ram, the Wii-kind of technical chips (e.g. 512 MB SLC-memory for Wii-compatibility, the memory-card reader, the 32 GB flashmemory etc), the 1:1 on-the-fly-compression chips costs another 100 dollar.

        WiiU DOES even have an manual included- on PS4 you have no manual as Sony decided to cut it down and you only have it “online” (which is a mess).

        On WiiU you have a LOT of accessoires included- even when you buy the white standard WiiU you have an manual and the most common things which are necessary- on PS4 there is nothing included by standard, even a game is only included on PS4 if you buy a special bundle-package.

  16. I don’t know why people continue to talk about Xbone and PS4 in this comments section. The reason I use this website for news is that I couldn’t care less about those consoles. Why not go to some general gaming news site like IGN and talk about these consoles?

    1. Yet 900p really doesn’t matter because you can’t tell the difference anyways. So 900p is also trash, therefore you made your argument trash. Exposed.

    2. and 1080 is better than 900p idiot and if xbone is as powerful as you said why it can’t support 1080, go and kiss bill gates’ dick

    3. And that’s the only best resolution the I.E.D Betamax dubbed “Xbox One” can do while Wii U managed to hit 1080p along with PS4. Even the iPod touch can do 1080p.

      Again, you lose.

  17. But are all the visuals ACTUALLY rendered in 1080p? Because I’ve seen some games that only render the game at 720p, but icons and on-screen displays are 1080p, therefore the entire image is “technically” 1080p

      1. This is exactly what he’ss trying to do, idiot. What he’s saying in this comment section is not about his personal interests in the game, but to make a flame war and piss people off.

  18. who cares about the res and frames, if it plays good then that is all that matters, sure those make the game look pretty and plays smooth but all that matters is the gamelay. you can make a game that runs the highest frames and highest res if that is your only focus then it would make the game a polished (pretty and smooth) turd. i say let the tournament begin once the game is released and see who is the better mario karter

  19. Too bad it probably won’t get the attention it needs for the Wii U to survive.. Nintendo won’t advertise on TV. One of the other game companies had promotion at the NBA Playoffs.

  20. CAN PEOPLE PLEASE STOP CONFUSINGBRESOLUTION TO GRAPHICS

    REGARDLESS OF 720P OR 1080P THERE IS NO BETTER LOOOKING XBONE OR PS4 GAME FACT AND THE ARGUING BETWEET@N 720 AND 1080 ONLY SHOWS ITSVIRRELIVENT AS THE GAMES STUNNING TO LOOK AT

    GREAT GRAPHICS IN HD ARE GREAT GRAPHICS IN HD TRYING TO CALL OUT RESOLUTIONS AS MARKERS OF GRAPHICS POWER IS IMATURITY AND IGNORENCE

    XBONES 900P ISNT WEAKER ITS A RENDER FRAME SIZE THAT FITS INTO THE ESRAM THE GRAPHICS THEMSELVES COULD STILL BE OR NOT ON PAR OR BETTER THAN PS4 CAN SONYS FANS PLEASE STOP CALLING RES GRAPHICS

    RESOLUTION IS THE NATIVE RENDERING ASPEC RATIO

    GRAPHICS ARE TEXTURES-POLYGONS-SHADERS-EFFECTS-POST PROCESSING ETC ETC ETC

    BY PUTTING MORE PROCESSING INTO GRAPHICS YOU GET MORE GRAPHICS BY PUTTING MORE PROCESSING INTO RES YOU GET MORE RES

    LOL AT FANBOYING 1080P INSTEAD OF FANBOYING GAMES FRAMES AND GRAPHICS

    BETTER GRAPHICS AND FRAMES ARE VASTLY MORE IMPORTANT THAN RES AS LONG AS THE RES IS GOOD ENOUGH TO SHOW OF THOSE GRAPHICS THAT IS ALL THAT MATTERS FACT

    THE FACT PEOPLE ARE STRUGGLING TO TELL IF MK8 IS 720 OR 1080 ONLY STREGTHENS THIS POSTS CREDIBILITY

    GROW THE FUCK UP

    SHIN’IN WHEN DEVELOPING THERE WIIU GAME SAID THERE WAS NO DIFFERANCE BETWEEN 1080 AND 720 AS THE GRAPHICS WERE LOOKING THE SAME

    ITS OVERAL VISUAL EXPERIENCE THAT MATTERS NOT A ASPEC RATIO NUMBER HD PLUS SWEET GRAPHICS NOT WITCH HD IT IS

    GROW THE FUCK UP

    1080P WOULDNT MAGICALLY MAKE PS2 GAMES NEXT FEN GRAPHICS THEY WOULD SIMPLY BE PS2 GRAPHICS IN 1080P

    GET IT RETARDS

  21. Xbox fan here, I just want to say I love and have always loved Nintendo, and am happy to see how to this game is turning out. One this I dislike is how you guys are claiming how ‘Xbots’ were trashing the Wii U, which isn’t true at all. Most Xbox fans don’t go out of their way to downplay the competition, especially when it comes to performance. You’re thinking of Sony fanboys.

    Also, at all of you claiming that the Wii U is more powerful than the other next-gen consoles because it runs MK8 at 1080p are wrong, sorry. If you were to get other next-gen titles and port the them to the Wii U, you wouldn’t get no where near the same level of performance, (i.e. KillZone, ISS, Forza, Ryse etc.) MK8 isn’t graphically demanding by any means.

        1. You vs technobuffalo (whom I might add , knows tech a lot better then you and has the game). When you hit the Royal Raceway for the first time and you zoom past a grove of cherry blossoms raining petals on the track in 1080p at 60FPS, it looks amazing. It looks just as good with two players, though three-to-four seemed to cause a minor dip. Nothing that would make it unplayable, just a touch noticeable.

          This is far and away the best looking Mario Kart game to-date, and Nintendo pulled that off with its typical sense of art design and style. Yes, it’s in 1080p at 60FPS, but it hits those marks with fidelity and vibrancy in color. Each course is bright and swathed in its own color scheme, and that makes each run through a familiar cup that much more enjoyable.

          1. I don’t care what technobuffalo says, I can see the upscaling artifacts with my own two eyes and if they can’t, they have no business writing about it. All of the screengrabs out there show it, as do the recent youtube 1080 videos.

            For the record, technobuffalo says nothing about whether the game is running in 1080p native or 1080p upscaled.
