Another multifarment game on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X has posted mostly comparable results, though again Sony’s system seems to have the advantage – at least, until the DIRT 5 gets more updates. At the moment, the PS5 has higher average resolution and improved texture filtering in the racer’s image quality mode, while it shows a significant increase in overall detail at 120 frames-per second. In fact, the differences are so obvious in the next scene that analysts suspect the digital foundry could be an error.
Notably, performance across the board on Sony’s new console is relatively good in most cases, the lack of VRR support means you’ll get a cleaner refresh rate on the Xbox Series X if you have a consistent television. This feature will be added to the PS5 as part of future firmware updates, the company has confirmed.
So, it was a good start to the generation for multiformat games on the PS5 – especially when the gold marginally weak hardware was expected to be a bit worse. Some are creating problems with the development environment of the Xbox Series X, which is said to be less mature than the PlayStation. Either way, the differences between the two devices are obviously smaller than before, so we’re not sure how much more important it is.
