From 4K at 30fps to 1800p at 60fps on PlayStation 5

Thus, and after the little material on Horizon Forbidden West in its versions for PS4 and PS4 Pro, comes this graphic and performance comparison that aims to clear all doubts compared to the most advanced version of PS5. To begin with, the title offers the following resolutions and frame rates per second depending on the version, with two display modes for PlayStation 5:


  • PS5: 4K at 30fps or 1800p at 60fps
  • PS4 Pro: 1800p at 30fps
  • PS4: 1080p at 30fps

Thus, and in relation to the hardware of each PlayStation model, it can be seen how both the resolution and the rate of frames per second decrease from more to less raw power. As a curiosity, in the two PS4 models the game occupies a space of 90.55 GB, while in PS5 it needs a total of 98.34 GB.


Among the benefits of the PS5 version we find more sharpness and greater antialiasing in 4K mode compared to 1800p mode. In all cases, a denser vegetation and a greater interaction of Aloy with it can be seen. Cyberpunk 2077 anticipates news in streaming; Date and Time. In addition, better textures and much more colorful particle effects are appreciated, although ray tracing is not offered in any case. All this on PS5 versus PS4 Pro and PS4.

The rate of frames per second is practically unchanged in all versions, although on PS5 better effects can also be seen in water or shadows. At the loading level, Horizon Forbidden West on PS5 barely takes 13 seconds to load the open world, while on PS4 it takes just a minute to wait. Even so, and despite the technical muscle of PS5, the Horizon Forbidden West gaming experience is totally viable on both PS4 models, according to the comparison.
