Thank you for your great content as always, NXGamer NXGamer



From the official description

This is it, ding! ding! the battle commences as the very first, of many, next gen consoles go head to head running the latest entry in Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Series.

Targeting 60fps on consoles from launch for the very first time is a big deal. Here the 2 Heavyweights of the SX and PS5 duke it our for Pixel Pushing, Frame-Rate Flipping and Hard Drive spinning like you wouldn't believe. You may be surprised by the results.

I am completely independent and this is a side project, if you enjoy the content on the channel and site, then please consider sharing it where possible and appropriate and if you can please support my work on Patreon:-https://www.patreon.com/user?u=2632056 Thanks For Watching.

"Watch in 1440/60 for the best experience."



Summary incoming:

Performance basically identical

Dynamic resolution counted as low as 1440p on XsX and 1620p PS5 but he thinks it drops as low as 1440p too. Basically identical

Roughly 1-2 second difference in loading


- Both are quite good at keeping 60FPS (in the area he tested)
- PS5 is vsynced, XSX is not
- Denamic res on both with ~1440p as the lowest limit (seen on XSX)
- PS5 loads 12% faster LOL Power of the SSD

So far differences between consoles are minimal, certainly not ~20%. WDL will be interesting.


(edit: By “first real test” I just meant that I think DMC5:SE to be a rushed sloppy unoptimized port and Valhalla seems like a more telling benchmark)

Interested in seeing the resolutions

My bet is ps5 is lower res but better frame rate.

I have the bad feeling it won't run that well on both hardware. Not that locked 60 FPS and many tearing .

YT has never taken so long to process a video. Goddamn it.
Depende of the quality and length of the video.
We will watch in 360p first so...
You need to go with what he says instead what it is shows.

I will be very disappointed if he doesn't provide us the average resolution of both consoles since they opted for dynamic resolution.

Some people who claimed having both versions already said that the PS5 version wasn't as stable as the Series X so unless they either lied or have shit eyes, I'm expecting the Series X version to perform better on that front.

The only guy I saw saying that was due the fault HDMI cable.
