Comparisons of new games for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X continue to appear on the network, and in the case of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, it is again about almost complete parity.
The author of the latest analysis was the VG Tech channel. He tested the shooter in two modes:
120 FPS in dynamic 1440p (can go down to 1280x1200)
60 FPS in dynamic 4K (can go down to 1920x1800) with ray traced shadows.
In both modes, Cold War reaches the declared frame rate, but if in the standard mode with 60 frames per second they are held in 99.9% of cases, then in the mode with 120 FPS drops still occur.
On PS5, they occur less often - the average was 117 FPS in the test. Xbox Series X has 114.93 FPS. The minimum indicators were 97 and 92 FPS, respectively.
Prior to this, Xbox Series X and PS5 have already managed to compare in Devil May Cry 5 and Assassin's Creed Valhalla. The difference between versions is minimal. Graphically, all versions are identical, and the main differences lie in a slight difference in performance and download speed.
At the same time, VG Tech tested Cold War on the Xbox Series S. This version does not offer 120fps mode or ray tracing shadows. In general, it looks and works in virtually the same way as it did on the outgoing generation of consoles. It works 99.9% at 60 FPS, but in the test, it dropped to 45 FPS.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War was released on November 13 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series, Xbox One, and PC. In its debut week, for the first time in history, it did not start from the first line in British retail - it was bypassed by the fresh Assassin's Creed.
