VG Tech PS5 vs XSX patch, performance drops to ps5 1368p and XSX 1080p (AC Valhalla)

Well, they added new effects (patch notes) but both systems had some performance issues in some cases. So if the res drops more on PS5 (as it is dynamic) it should just drop because the performance would otherwise be worse (simple as that).
But after all, this is just a quick patch to get rid of the worst performance problems and tearing. Lowering bottom resolution target is not really an optimization, just a quick fix.

After all it should be like in the other titles, the xbox is underperforming. Take measuring device of your choice behind the xbox and you will see that the system does not draw much power at all. This just indicates the soc is not really under load and is idling around. MS must really fix their tools, so developers can reach max load on the chip.

PS: The low power-consumption is just and indicator that something is wrong and does not prove anything. But it is really odd that the power-consumption is as low as it is in third party games. Even BC games draw more power than native third party games.

I'm wondering if we can really compare power draw between the PS5 and the XSX since they handle it differently.

The zoomed in compressed shots are hilarious. Looks like a bunch of 6th generation games.

Series S as low as 1200x675? 😂😂😂

For some laughs, an October 2007 article on Halo 3:

Following reports on the internet that Halo 3 runs at a resolution lower than 720p, Bungie has come clean and confirmed that the Xbox 360's flagship title doesn't quite meet the minimum requirements for HD resolution, with the game running at the slightly lower resolution of 1152x640.

It'll be hard to not want troll Series S as a "not even HD" console for the next 7 years.

Oh, I guess I'm back to disabling auto-updates at this point again. Fun stuff.
I never do auto updates, not for games and software updates.
I wait a few Days watch the internet for troubles, bugs and so on. When the stuff is fixes without problems then i update the games and software updates. I dont like taking risks😉

So the PS5 version has a higher resolution and better effects and before the patch performed better with these extras.........Interesting stuff Ubisoft.....

Higher rez shadow maps and crepuscular rays on the PS5, hence why the lighting looks better on PS5 which I indicated even before NX made his video....Textures also look better because of better AF and slightly higher average resolutions.......It's interesting that beyond NX gamer no one is talking about that.....Certainly not DF and, as a matter of fact Alex shot that down talking about config files, we are not comparing config files, we are comparing what you see on screen, as can be seen clearly, what's in the config file does not always mesh with what's on screen, so it's npt a good or accurate comparison.......Judge the games in realtime, not from a text file....So many disingenuous analyses abound.....

OTOH, when Ubisoft fixes this patch, which went from a 97.52% 16.3ms on PS5 vs 87.28 on XBOX Series X, with the PS5 version having better shadows, better rays, better textures and higher resolution, then something definitely smells fishy in the here and now...

I wouldn't judge IQ based on a YT video with awful compression.
We have been doing this for years.......But right now we can't? So what have we been doing all this time? Even with compression, you can see the lighting source is better on PS5, the IQ overall better....Same can be seen in COD, DMC5 etc.....

When you're that desperate for a win you'll take anything. Xbox One was known as the 900p console. Looks like XSX is following in its footsteps as the 1080p console.

So blame the console, but not the sloppy engine this games running on? Okay.

So the patches have shown that Ubi is terrible at coding and optimisation. The performance or lack of it on any console is not the fault of the console. Thats the only take away here.
They aren't terrible at coding. They are just making these big open world games that require a shitton of asesets and QA, and they are doing it on a really small tineframe for games if this size.

Why is every analysis thread getting bumped

Because in ones like this one, where the PS5 was touted as the superior machine, the true receipts are finally in and the XSX has the superior experience. Barely.

And yes, it’s asinine, but the whole console war this generation is when the consoles each have their strengths and weaknesses.

The difference is almost nothing, the only game so far with any real difference is Hitman 3.

Your history is completely backwards.

The reason why these threads attract a lot of attention is because the XSX has been touted as the superior machine based solely on theoretical teraflops for the past year (When quite a few developers have stated otherwise). Now that results are in, this doesn't seem to be the case in every instance.

This is all bull. lol

Let's look at the history.

An "ex-Sony dev" came out and said the difference between both consoles are staggering and Xbox fanboys ran with the narrative.

Later that year, Xbox fanboys were laughing that Assassins Creed was going to run at a Native 4K and PS5 was going to run at an upscaled 4K. The reason why AC threads were popular over the past few months is because it turned out the PS5 was running better.


This was after PlayStation 5 was said to be 9TF based on Github leaks which turned out to be old. Still, months after it was confirmed to be 10TF, Xbox fanboys were still calling it a 9TF machine.

Now you still have XBox fanboys calling it RDNA 1.1 and 1.5 and XsX RDNA 2.

There have been rumors from so called "insiders" that the PS5 might have more TFs, but that doesn't hold a candle to what people were saying about the PS5 and how much weaker it was going to be.
