Microsoft Xbox Series X Doesn't Perform As Well As Sony PS5, Why?

On paper, the Xbox Series X is having an edge over its rival, so Microsoft calls it the most powerful console in the world. But that's not true in reality.

Even before the launch of the consoles, people had already compared the power of the Microsoft Xbox Series X and Sony PlayStation 5. On paper, the Series X is having an edge over its rival, giving Microsoft the confidence to call it the most powerful console in the world. However, early testing shows that the PlayStation 5 turns out to perform better.

The PS5 has several exclusive launch games that debuted at the same time as the launch of the console, on November 12, many other big titles are offered on both the Xbox Series X and the PS5. However, it appears that most of those titles are running better on the PS5 than the Xbox Series X.

Over the last few weeks, Digital Foundry has been looking at multiplatform titles on the Series X and PS5 to see how they compare. It was noted by The Verge that the PS5 versions of those games had constantly better performance than the Xbox versions.

For example, the Xbox version of Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition performs slightly better than the PS5 counterpart in performance mode. However, the high frame rate mode works much better on the PlayStation 5. The same thing is seen on the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla as the frame rate is more consistent on the PS5 while there is screen juddering and tearing on the Xbox Series X. The resolution and image quality of Dirt 5 is also better on the PS5.

Though some discrepancies can be patched, developers explain that the developer environment of the Xbox Series X could be the reason for this difference in performances. The dev kits for the PS5 were being delivered long before those of the Xbox Series X, meaning developers of Microsoft’s console had much less time to work with the hardware to optimize the titles. Hopefully, the gaps will be narrowed in the coming weeks and months.
