Players are even demanding refunds for Cyberpunk 2077 on PS4 and Xbox One and CD Projekt Red has apologized for the situation. But what is the real problem?
Why does Cyberpunk 2077 have performance problems?
The tech experts at Digital Foundry took a look at it. The problem goes beyond that Cyberpunk 2077 (buy now € 54.89 ) does not run at 60 fps on PS4 and Xbox One. Hardly anyone expected that. But FPS that permanently drop below 20 and move towards 15 can significantly reduce the fun of the game. Digital Foundry found that the game's performance was worst on the Xbox One S, and even below that of the much-maligned PS4. In return, the game on the PS4 Pro runs best and most stable of the "Last Gen" consoles. Even better than the Xbox One X. The Xbox Series S, on the other hand, shows a more consistent FPS result than the other consoles, with fewer drops in performance, even though its GPU is worse than the Xbox One X.
Findings from the analysis: "First of all, the lack of memory on the last-gen machines may not be the problem – the Xbox One X has 9 GB of usable RAM and still has serious problems. Meanwhile, the Series S has less memory and shines delivering a better, more consistent overall experience. Where the machine has clear wins over the last-gen consoles is in terms of memory and, critically, CPU performance. The evidence suggests that if Cyberpunk 2077 is worst The lack of CPU power is the main culprit. It's especially evident when driving around town – the background streaming systems are heavy on the CPU and all versions are buckling. Even the next-gen consoles, Stadia and PC versions are performing poorly here. The only problem with this theory is the Xbox One X – its CPU is faster than the PS4 Pro, but the Pro routinely beats it in terms of performance, w Even with fluctuating results. "
The performance problems with Cyberpunk 2077 seem to be related to the CPU. The Witcher 3 also had such problems at launch. However, they were fixed over time by patches. So there is hope that this will also be the case with Cyberpunk 2077.
