The PS5 unreal Engine 5 demo is 1440p@30fps most of the time due to the GPU.

It also required dynamic resolution scaling, which adjusts resolution on-the-fly to lock in a consistent frame rate. For reference, most of the PS4 Pro's 4K games have dynamic resolution scaling and few are native 4K.

Epic's VP of Engineering Nick Penwarden says the demo hit 1440p 30FPS on PlayStation 5 with dynamic resolution scaling enabled--the resolution spot between 1080p and 4K but at the lower FPS range for these kinds of action-adventure experiences.

"Interestingly, [Nanite] does work very well with our dynamic resolution technique as well. So, when GPU load gets high we can lower the screen resolution a bit and then we can adapt to that. In the demo we actually did use dynamic resolution, although it ends up rendering at about 1440p most of the time,"

And according to Sweeney:

"A number of different components are required to render this level of detail, right?" offers Sweeney. "One is the GPU performance and GPU architecture to draw an incredible amount of geometry that you're talking about - a very large number of teraflops being required for this.

The last thing I thought when I saw that tech demo was "this needs more teraflops" 🤦‍♂️

Also didn't I hear it was hard to pixel count the demo?

This doesn't really bode well and I hope there are optimizations. Next gen between 1080p and 1440p means either the systems underpowered or this engine is in dire need of optimization.

So what? It fucking shits on anything at 4K. Fuck this resolution and fps bullshit that's poisoned many people. This is what graphics should be about. They can go 1080p too if they can provide such graphics.

Yeah but at what cost lol. If these consoles can't handle next gen Graphics and resolutions then they've already failed.

You just came back from a 2 week (1 week reduced) ban for you constant console war trolling and bait. You had to be permanently reply banned from threads yesterday for this. Take a real 2 weeks this time, you are running our of chances.

There are already many threads on here for this, without the rush to post and mess up the title in effort to troll.
