Dirt 5 Update Has Improved Visuals In 120 FPS Mode On Xbox Series Bringing It Equal To PS5
Dirt 5 has been updated on the Xbox Series consoles for the 120 FPS performance mode in order to address a bug that leads to a visual downgrade.
This was originally highlighted by Digital Foundry in a technical analysis that covered the different next-generation versions of Dirt 5 including PS5, Xbox Series S, and X. This was identified to be a bug rather than a limitation of the hardware and it appears to have been resolved with an update today.
As reported in the official Dirt 5 patch notes, this update was already out on PS5 and PC and finally released today for Xbox Series. It will address the following issues.
- Further general visual and performance improvements across the board, including visual updates to the ‘Prioritise Frame Rate’/120hz mode on Xbox Series X
According to Digital Foundry’s John Linneman, this update has resolved the issue with low geometry when running the game in the 120 FPS mode.
Before this update, the PS5 version had an edge with a higher level of detail and geometry in the 120 FPS mode, but this should be gone now and both versions should be equal.
Good news here – the low geometry bug we highlighted in Dirt 5 on Xbox Series X has been corrected. Full detail models are now used just like the PS5 version. Well done @dirtgame pic.twitter.com/67if4k43Zd

- Fixes issue causing players who’ve completed every Career to be unable to access the mode
- Further performance improvements for Nvidia GPUs
This is currently live now on PC and will be released for PlayStation and Xbox consoles at a later date.
