Battlefield V has received 120 FPS support for the Xbox Series X making it the first time a console has run Battlefield at such a high frame rate.
This is a part of the FPS Boost program by Microsoft which recently received a massive update bringing the total number of games that support this feature to more than 90. One of the games with FPS Boost is Battlefield V, which already runs at 60 FPS on consoles. The new boost allows it to support 120 FPS and to double the frame rate, it runs at Xbox One spec or in other words, 1080p resolution.
While the Xbox Series X benefits from running Battlefield V in backward compatibility mode, the same is not true for the PS5. In the case of the Xbox Series X, the game had a dynamic resolution but now it sticks closely to 4K resolution, or 2160p on the Series X. The frame rate also manages to hold up well at 60 FPS despite this high resolution.
In the case of the PS5, the frame rate is great at 60 FPS but the resolution is unfortunately not that much of an improvement over the PS4 Pro. It has an upper bound of 1800p but it fails to hit that resolution and manages to stick just slightly ahead of the PS4 Pro.
“PS5 uses a dynamic resolution with the highest resolution found being 3200×1800 and the lowest resolution found being approximately 2432×1368. Pixel counts are often below 3200×1800 on PS5. Strangely, the resolution on PS5 doesn’t receive as significant of an increase over the PS4 Pro as some other games do that use a dynamic resolution and run via backwards compatibility. As an example of the difference between PS5 and PS4 Pro, the PS5 rendered a scene at approximately 2688×1512 and the PS4 Pro rendered the same scene at approximately 2304×1296, ” reveals VGTech in their analysis.
Battlefield V has just been made free for PS4 and PS5 subscribers after it debuted on the PlayStation Plus subscription this month. It is also playable through EA Access which is part of the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate bundle.
