    No I also aren't too impressed at all, same with Returnal, neither are very impressive

    I was so stoked for Returnal until I found out what type of game it is. Knowing the developer, I don't know why I expected to be different.

    Somewhat ironically, I often complain that Sony exclusives are mostly 3rd person action games with a narrative focus. And that's exactly what I wanted Returnal to be, but it's more of a bullet hell rogue-like.

    You know what's usually more taxed (than usual) during shooting? CPU. This is not a suprise as this is a regular pattern now in many comparisons since basically the start of next-gen. XSX has often some kind of lead when its GPU / bandwidth limited but that gap is often gone once the CPU start to be more seriously used, usually during more representative gameplay scenes.

    you sure it isn't culling and overdraw? How are you differentiating the two?

    Yeah, PS5/XBSX/S owners should stick to the non-RT mode. While the frame drops aren't necessarily lengthy, however, seeing both systems drop into the low 50s (and even the 40s) isn't a pleasant gaming experience IMHO. Capcom should provide console gamers with a 30fps capped RT-mode as well.

    I dunno, sporadic dips into the 50s aren't that bad with VRR. I'll definitely play RT on.

    Yeah, VRR will be the ticket for those owners of such TV sets. PS5 gamers on the other hand... well...
