Elden Ring, with magnifying glass: FPS, resolution and more on PlayStation, Xbox and PC
Digital Foundry, a page specializing in Eurogamer hardware, highlights that in the versions of PS5 and Xbox Series X the rate of images per second ranges between 45 and 60 in performance mode; while in quality mode (higher resolution at the cost of compromising frame rate) it can range between 30 FPS and 60 FPS. According to the British medium, Elden Ring generally performs better on PS5, but it does not have VRR (variable refresh rate) support, but is fixed. They recommend playing the PS4 version if we want a stable 60 FPS. Curious circumstance.
The PC version (version 1.02), meanwhile, is FromSoftware’s first DirectX 12 game and has “severe” FPS issues; including stuttering on some assets. For the rest, on high-end computers it is possible to play above 60 FPS. Room for improvement in the computer version.
