GTA V PS5 Version Ray-Tracing Mode Comparison Shows Improved Reflections
GTA V PS5 is available now in New Zealand and Australia and comparisons have started to appear showing the new ray-tracing mode.
There are three different modes for GTA V on the PS5 and Xbox Series X. The game offers a performance mode, a fidelity mode, and an RT performance mode. The performance mode runs the game at 60 FPS while the Fidelity mode drops the frame rate to 30 FPS. The RT Performance mode offers the advantage of 60 FPS but with reduced resolution and effects to maintain performance.
Here is a comparison between the Fidelity mode and the Performance mode courtesy of Ben on Twitter.

You can learn more about the various visual modes that are available on the PS5 and Xbox Series X from this article.
The reflections are sadly not ray-traced but rather cube maps but their resolution has been greatly improved now. As a result, they look nicer and much cleaner compared to the PS4 version.
