Cyberpunk 2077: graphic comparison PS5 vs PS4 vs PS4 Pro (Patch 1.5)

Cyberpunk 2077 has released the long-awaited new generation update this Tuesday, patch 1.5 that enables PS5 and Xbox Series players to play a native edition for these consoles. All PS4 and Xbox One players who have purchased CD Projekt RED’s futuristic RPG can now upgrade for free and see first-hand if this year and a half of waiting has been worth it. In this regard, content creation channels such as El Analista de Bits already have their comparison between editions ready; in this case, a graphic comparison between the PS5, PS4 Pro and PS4 versions after applying patch 1.5.

How much has Cyberpunk 2077 improved? Face to face between PS5, PS4 and PS4 Pro

The first thing that stands out is that, although CD Projekt reports on its official website that Cyberpunk 2077 runs in dynamic 4K resolution on PS5, the reality is that “in all the tested areas its resolution is 1440p“, reports El Analista de Bits. The title has been adapted to the new generation, reducing its size by half and with greatly reduced loading times; added to an improvement in the lighting and shading system.

On the other hand, it is also noted that the Ray-Tracing mode adds contact shadows, but does not apply to reflections or global illumination. As far as the pop-in is concerned, it has improved considerably, but it still appears at certain times, such as during vehicle navigation. Other positive aspects of the game on PS5 are the draw distance and the anisotropic filtering, added to the greater density of NPCs on the screen and the compatibility with DualSense controls.

This is how things look in terms of resolution and frame rate per second according to the results of The Bit Analyst:

  • PS5 Performance Mode: Dynamic resolution 2160p at 60 FPS (typically 1440p). Weight: 56.10 GB
  • PS5 Ray-Tracing Modecing: dynamic resolution 2160p at 30 FPS (usually 1440p). Weight: 56.10 GB
  • PS4 Pro: Dynamic resolution 1224p at 30 FPS (typically 1080p). Weight: 59.42 GB
  • PS4: Dynamic resolution 1080p at 30 FPS (typically 720p). Weight: 59.42GB
