Guilty Gear -STRIVE- is the latest title from Arc System Works that runs on a brand new engine, and it manages to run at native 4K on the PS5.
Whoa, PS5 running 4x better than PS4 Pro? Is that possible? Absolutely! Why? Not because the PS5 GPU is 4x faster than PS4 Pro on its own. But because of the weak Jaguar CPU in the PS4. With a fighting game like Guilty Gear, it's essential to maintain the locked 60hz. While the PS4 Pro GPU could probably handle 1440p resolution fine, they probably found that the overall system with the Jaguar CPU could not stay locked at 1440p. Meanwhile, the combination of the RDNA2 GPU and Zen2 CPU means you have a system where the CPU can actually keep up with the GPU...finally! Native 4K with locked 60 fps FTW! Welcome to the next generation :)
