GTA 5: video comparison between PS5, Xbox Series X | S and PC, with details on resolution and framerate


ElAnalistaDeBits has released a new video, this time dedicated to GTA 5 that compares the PS5, Xbox Series X | S and PC versions, also providing details on resolution, framerate and more of the next-gen console re-editions of the Rockstar Games game.

According to the analysis of ElAnalistaDeBits on the various graphic modes of GTA 5 for next-generation consoles, these are the results regarding resolution and framerate:

PS5 and Xbox Series X

Fidelity: 2160p and 30fps Performance: 1440p at 60fps RT Performance: 1440p dynamic

Xbox Series S

Fidelity: 1440p at 30fps Performance: 1080p at 60fps

The mode Performance RT graphics, as explained in our analysis of next-gen versions of GTA 5 are limited to shadows only.

As noted in the video, all console versions of GTA 5 use the same textures and add new ones effects and improved lighting compared to the old gen counterparts. PS5 has an advantage over Xbox Series X as far as the framerate is concerned, stable enough even in the most hectic situations, where the Microsoft console instead has drops up to 45fps.

Also according to ElAnalistaDeBits, the Performance and Performance RT modes of GTA 5 seem to use a kind of temporal recostruction. The Fidelity mode, on the other hand, has better shadows, reflections and depth of field than the other two. The reflections are of a slightly higher quality even than the PC version.

The PS5 and Xbox Series X versions have better shadows and ambient occlusion than the old gen consoles and, in some cases, even the PC version. The latter version has denser vegetation and greater draw distance for assets, but not for shadows.

In general, for ElAnalistaDeBits the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of GTA 5 are very similar to the PC version with Ultra settings. The youtuber equates these reissues with those of Ghost of Tsushima and Death Stranding.
