Digital Foundry continues to test the Xbox Series X, and in a fresh clip, experts took a look at performance in problem games for Xbox One. Special attention was given to Just Cause 3, the frame rate of which during difficult scenes with explosions dropped down to a stable 10-15 frames per second. The problem was the weak PS4 and Xbox One processor, so things didn‘t improve much on the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.
However, the new consoles use modern processors based on AMD Zen 2, and yes, Just Cause 3 is finally running with a stable 30 FPS — the curse has been removed. Another interesting example was Rainbow Six Siege, which in PVE mode allows you to completely disable vertical synchronization and completely unlock the lock on FPS.
On Xbox One X, the shooter shows 60-70 FPS, whereas on Xbox Series X it shows 120-135 FPS. Even in DF tested the following games: Red Dead Redemption 2 (4K) – 30 FPS with very rare Batman drops: Arkham Asylum – “more stable” 45 FPS (the game has lock on 45 FPS) The Vanishing of Ethan Carter (4K) — 60 FPS The Evil Within 2 — 55-60 FPS at the start of the game vs.
30 FPS on Xbox One X Assetto Corsa Competizione — floating 30-60 FPS vs. 30 FPS on Xbox One X Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order — 60 FPS without any underloading.
In addition, Digital Foundry tried ARK: Survival Evolved. In the mode with reduced graphics, it was possible to reach 60 frames per second, whereas with the increased level of visual — about 50 FPS.
But this game has one of the worst optimizations on consoles of the current generation. Also experts note that games with dynamic resolution really look better: it is not always noticeable immediately, however in the same Call of Duty: Modern Warfare objects far more detailed.
The same applies to Hellblade. On Xbox One X, you can spot scaling artifacts that don’t exist on Xbox Series Digital Foundry More on CCeit Interstellar and 87 Years in a Black Hole: Fresh Apex Trailer Legends Destruction AllStars for PS5 will give PS Plus subscribers, but the game postponed until February Microsoft showed a 14-minute demo of Xbox Series X — interface, games, dynamic theme.
