PlayStation 5 review: welcome to the next generation – Eurogamer.net

I have an AOC AG271QX display, which works just fine at 1440p resolution on Xbox consoles (with VRR performance, no less) however the exact same screen tops out at just 1080p on PlayStation 5, suggesting that video game outputs will be downscaled from 4K, then upscaled by the screen to 1440p. Fan speeds (and thus noise) also appear remarkably constant, and even ramping up power draw as much as I could with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales in photo mode – and then leaving the console alone for an hour – PlayStation 5 continued to be just as peaceful and cool. Perhaps more illuminating is that PlayStation 5 seems top out with the same level of power consumption as Xbox Series X running Gears 5 – the most difficult work-out I could find for the Microsoft console.

PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X declare a brand-new console generation -but the emergence of amazing, advanced video gaming hardware does not kick off in a vacuum. I have an AOC AG271QX display screen, which works just great at 1440p resolution on Xbox consoles (with VRR performance, no less) but the very same screen tops out at just 1080p on PlayStation 5, suggesting that game outputs will be downscaled from 4K, then upscaled by the screen to 1440p. Fan speeds (and therefore sound) also appear incredibly consistent, and even ramping up power draw as much as I could with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales in image mode – and then leaving the console alone for an hour – PlayStation 5 continued to be simply as cool and peaceful. Perhaps more illuminating is that PlayStation 5 appears top out with the very same level of power usage as Xbox Series X running Gears 5 – the most difficult work-out I might discover for the Microsoft console. I understand it’s early days and that third-party drives require comprehensive screening, but I truly hope that at launch -or close to it -Sony whitelists a suitable drive or 2 for usage with the PlayStation 5.
