Cyberpunk 2077 finally arrives this week, putting an end to an extended production cycle and countless delays. The question now is, of course, which next-gen console plays it the best?
Well, we have some good news or some bad news, depending which side of the console war you’re on. Because it turns out that the Xbox Series X has an advantage over the PS5.
VGC has uncovered one key difference between the PlayStation and Xbox versions of the game when you’re playing on a next-gen console. The PS5 has a performance mode in the settings, and when activated the resolution takes a minor hit to give the console what it needs to try and hit 60 frames per second.
The Xbox Series X has this too, but it has an extra “quality mode” that does the exact opposite. If you’re willing to play at 30fps you can boost the resolution to its uppermost limit.
As for the PC version, it seems like it performs better than the console versions. you’ll need the latest Nvidia RTX 3090 GPU if you want any chance of hitting 4K 60FPS. Even downgrading to 1440p 60FPS is going to need something akin to an RTX 3080. That said, it seems like you can get one or the other with slightly less advanced hardware.
One thing we should note right now is that the current version of Cyberpunk 2077 is a last-gen game, playing on the PS5 and Xbox Series X via backwards compatibility. A next-gen upgrade isn’t due until sometime next year, which means it hasn’t been optimized for the more advanced hardware and can’t take full advantage of what’s on offer.
