Resident Evil Village Runs at 4K 60fps on PS5 & XSX, 45fps With Ray Tracing On

Capcom has revealed the frame-rate and resolution for Resident Evil Village, with next-gen consoles getting the 4K, 60fps treatment. Check out the frame rate and resolutions for every platform (current and next-gen).

This must be some kind of mistake. 45 frames? what the hell is that?

DJStotty1130d ago

That is in-between 30 frames and 60 frames

darthv721130d ago

We hear so much about if a game cant hit 60 then it should lock to 30 and here comes Capcom with a 'hold my beer' and does 45. That's just nuts.

bouzebbal1129d ago

Sounds great.. I hope it gets psvr support.

kayoss1129d ago (Edited 1129d ago )

I laughed too hard at this comment.

Babadook71129d ago (Edited 1129d ago )

Whole different world for a typical pc gamer. As in running way lower settings.

The trailer looks so last gen, it's definitely a last gen graphics engine. Ray tracing is the death of 60fps this gen

PrinceAli1130d ago

Spider-Man, Ratchet and Clank and games like Forza, Gran Turismo will beg to differ bro

Axel-Foley1130d ago

At least you can turn it off and get the higher frame-rate.

CobraKai1129d ago

And in the case of Spider-Man, you can have your cake and eat it too with 60fps and RTX. 4K is nice but isn’t necessary.
I think this game looks amazing on current and last gen.

dadavis19921129d ago

Have you played the demo? It’s a gorgeous game. The interior lighting and material work is outstanding, and looks almost photo-real in HDR

BehindTheRows1129d ago

On consoles, maybe. Whole different world for us PC folks, particularly those of us with RTX cards considered high-end, such as my outgoing TITAN RTX.

In any event, I tried to tell console fans that this 60-120fps train would eventually crash as the gen progressed and games started to get more demanding. While Village isn’t the most advanced, expect to see this more as devs push fidelity over frame rate. That’s just what sells!

The RE engine is great, what? Capcom has been killing it lately.

It’s weird that a cross-gen game still struggles to hit 60fps with a next-gen feature turned on... well, there’s always next-gen, I suppose.

CantThinkOfAUsername1130d ago

This isn't even full Ray Tracing and a $1,500 GPU will still struggle to hit 60 FPS. You are expecting too much from $500 machines.

snake-OO1130d ago

This is still a last gen engine game with next generation features tacked on. To have the game run at 60fps with ray tracing, they would have to rebuild the whole engine that is wholly optimised for ps5/XSX/PC. They are saving that for RE8.

DarXyde1130d ago

You're really underestimating how expensive ray tracing is. Imagine a situation where every reflective surface in a game is just waiting for any myriad of light calculations, and done in a realistic manner. There is a reason why even high-end GPUs do this with some compromise and, in the case of NVidia cards, have dedicated ray tracing cores: so that they can focus entirely on that. When you consider that you're only really getting that full ray tracing on NVidia cards using DLSS, it speaks volumes of the burden it places on a card running games at 4K/60fps.

Personally, I actually expect ray tracing to work better on PS5 than Series X; the SSD is faster which is likely to help reduce 4K pop-in and allow for only rendering what is in view. Being a FPS in a closed environment, I think the PS5 can pull this off and be better at maintaining frames. Will it make a big difference? Doubtful. Haven't seen any games that make a huge difference yet, really. I think the real difference will be whether or not you care about trophies/achievements or controller features.

“ Personally, I actually expect ray tracing to work better on PS5 than Series X; the SSD is faster which is likely to help reduce 4K pop-in and allow for only rendering what is in view.”

This doesn’t make sense - SSD speeds basically have no impact on ray tracing capabilities & in order to ray trace you need to be processing what isn’t in view/everything in the scene... what is not in view can still show up in a reflection on an object which is in view.

Really, we just need AMD to step up and produced a DLSS equivalent that performs as good as Nvidia’s.

BrettAwesome1129d ago

@snake-OO
Uhm...so this game IS RE8, with...you know...the last one being RE7 and all...so, there's that...

snake-OO1129d ago

I was meant to say RE9 not RE8

frostypants1129d ago (Edited 1129d ago )

People don't understand what a processing bandwidth pig ray tracing is.

DarXyde1129d ago

Orchard,

"This doesn’t make sense - SSD speeds basically have no impact on ray tracing capabilities & in order to ray trace you need to be processing what isn’t in view/everything in the scene... what is not in view can still show up in a reflection on an object which is in view."

If a scene is fully ray traced, you may have a point. I don't expect it to be, nor do I expect the reflections to be 4k. If they do go for full ray tracing on all surfaces, I still partly disagree. All it means is everything can be rendered (in and out of view) but the resolution of things out of view is lower until the camera turns (e.g., foveated rendering). The speed of the SSD is actually helpful in such instances where there needs not be such strict attention to what is off screen, but it can still be rendered, albeit at lower resolutions.

And Nvidia raytracing is 1.5 times faster than amd because they have better dedicated hardware for it.

This is the power of next gen consoles. Outdated at launch.

darthv721129d ago

That's the power of pine-sol baby.

PersonMan1129d ago

When has this ever not been the case? Consoles are weaker than PCs all the time. They have to try to find a balance between price and performance. You can't have everything and expect to pay $500

northpaws1129d ago

That's one more than 44, and one less than 46.

With that said, I am glad you found something to complain about, I was afraid for once people would be just happy about something. /s

Jin_Sakai1129d ago

4K w/ RT @ 45fps? Why not just drop the resolution to get 60fps?
