Sony’s PlayStation 5 is set to launch tomorrow (Nov. 12), so it’s only natural for gamers to pit it against its rival, the newly-released Xbox Series X. Both are the most powerful game consoles currently on the market, but there are some differences. To show them, Digital Foundry compared Devil May Cry V: Special Edition on both in a head-to-head battle. In Normal mode, both can run the game at a native 4K with an unlocked frame rate with just minor dips below 60fps. Read more for the video and additional information.
Things really start getting hectic in High Frame Rate mode, which runs in 1080p and up to 120fps. Unfortunately, both consoles were not able to max out in this mode, with the game settling around 100fps most of the time. The most intensive mode is Quality, which runs at 4K with ray-tracing enabled. However, the PlayStation 5 did come out on top in some scenarios, but both were not able to maintain a constant 60fps. On the bright side, this game has not unlocked the full potential of either console, so expect some amazing exclusives in the near future.
