Tech channel VG Tech put the new action adventure Immortals: Fenyx Rising to the test to see if it works better on the PS5 or Xbox Series X. It turns out that the new Xbox is losing out with this title too – even if only just barely.
The PS5 has a small advantage
Before panic breaks out, the performance difference between PS5 and Xbox Series X is minimal. Probably hardly anyone will notice it while playing. But what is also interesting: In the game's performance mode, the resolution is dynamically regulated, with the lowest of 2275×1280 on the PS5 being higher than the lowest on the Xbox Series X (1080p). So that means the PS5 version of Immortals: Fenyx Rising (buy now € 53.60 ) runs a little more smoothly in performance mode despite a slightly higher resolution.
This shows that Immortals: Fenyx Rising joins the ranks of the new games, which despite the better hardware of the Xbox Series X have a slight advantage on the PS5. As with games like Assassin's Creed Valhalla or Devil May Cry 5, this is apparently due to the fact that Microsoft was only able to equip the game developers with developer kits for the new console relatively late. Microsoft first had to wait for AMD's RDNA2 technology to be ready, which will be fully deployed in the new Xbox. Because of this, the developer was apparently not able to optimize the games as well for the new Xbox consoles as was the case with the PS5. But that could change with titles that are not planned for 2021.

So far we have financed this site through advertising and kept it as free of clickbaits or paid items as possible, but since COVID-19 this has become increasingly difficult. Many companies are cutting or cutting their advertising budgets for 2020. Budgets that we unfortunately have to rely on if we want to continue to offer PC games free of charge as usual in the future.
For this reason we turn to you now. You can support us as a PC Games supporter so that we can continue to offer our content in the usual form for free, without introducing a paywall or publishing clickbait news like "And you won't believe what happened next …" .
