Black Ops Cold War Runs at Dynamic 4K Resolution In 120 FPS Mode On PS5 and XSX
Black Ops Cold War supports 120 FPS on the PS5 and Xbox Series X and surprisingly maintains a dynamic 4K resolution instead of dropping to 1080p.
YouTube channel VGTech has shared a frame rate and technical comparison for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on PS5 and Xbox Series X. You can have a look at it below.
The game offers 120 FPS support on PS5 in addition to the Xbox Series X. Unlike other launch games like Dirt 5, which renders at 1080p on the next-generation consoles to offer 120 FPS support, Black Ops Cold War appears to maintain dynamic 4K resolution which drops to as low as 1200p on both platforms.

Another surprise is the stability of the frame rate. PS5 appears to main a higher average frame rate in the 120 FPS mode than the Xbox Series X while the latter holds a perfectly locked 60 FPS in the quality mode which offers ray-traced shadows at a 4K resolution.
Xbox Series S doesn’t benefit from ray-tracing or 120 FPS mode compared to the PS5 and Xbox Series X. Here’s a summary of the various resolutions that were detected by VGTech.
Both PS5 and Series X in the ray tracing mode use a dynamic resolution with the highest resolution found being 3840×2160 and the lowest resolution found being 1920×1800. PS5 at 120fps, Series X at 120fps and Series S use a dynamic resolution with the highest resolution found being 2560×1440 and the lowest resolution found being 1280×1200. PS5 at 120fps, Series X at 120fps and Series S use a form of temporal reconstruction to reconstruct the horizontal resolution up to 2560 when the horizontal resolution is below this figure.
The difference in frame rate is negligible while the biggest surprise is how the PS5 manages to hold parity with the Xbox Series X despite offering almost 17% less raw hardware power.
