Destiny Xbox One will run at 1080p and 30 frames per second, following the release of Microsoft’s June SDK, which lets developers tap into the 10% GPU power previously reserved for Kinect functionality.
GameTrailers’ Geoff Keighly confirmed the numbers on Twitter after he interviewed Microsoft’s Phil Spencer:
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.

I echoes Spencer’s discussion on the matter earlier in the week, who said, “Even our friends at Bungie, and I’ve been spending a lot of time down there, they’re going to pick up the June SDK update for Destiny, and they’re going to up the resolution of Destiny based on this change. So I think it’s just a great time for us.”
