PlayStation 5 gamers can finally hit 120fps with this mighty graphics boost

PlayStation 5 gamers can finally hit 120fps with this mighty graphics boost

Give your consoles some added juice!

It’s a fantastic time to be a gamer whether we play on PC, PlayStation, Xbox or Nintendo Switch, perhaps even all of those glorious systems.

As each new console generation arrives, each system grows more powerful in terms of visual fidelity, processing power and speedy framerates. In the ‘good ole days’ when a console was purchased, the upgrade usually happened with the next generation (unless you count the N64 Expansion Pak).

However, in this generation, consoles such as the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S can receive updates via the internet that can bring a whole host of new improvements and added juice. It’s one of the best benefits of being a gamer of this generation.

Now, thanks to recent updates, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S can support AMD FSR 3 Frame Generation, providing framerates of up to 120fps. Electronic Arts and Ascendant Studios’ Immortals of Aveum is the first game to support this technology on consoles.

Granted, despite being a visually impressive game, I’m sure not everyone will be excited to play Immortals of Aveum at 120fps but if this game isn't your cup of tea, it will no doubt set a new standard for games that will follow. In a nutshell, what AMD FSR 3 Frame Generation does is generate new frames in between the rendered frames to give the benefitting game an almighty speed boost.

What’s more, the process that AMD FSR 3 Frame Generation delivers is also intended to provide a massive frames-per-second boost without hindering the visual quality of the game too much, as wonderfully explained by tech experts Digital Foundry.

Digital Foundry reports that, in general, there is an increase of around 40fps to 60fps and 80fps to 100fps which equates to a boost of around 72% while maintaining high visual fidelity. Digital Foundry did state that there were some visual artefacts such as shimmering, so it’s not completely perfect but it's certainly an improvement nonetheless.

No doubt this will help set the standard for the rumoured upcoming PlayStation 5 Pro which is expected to launch sometime this year as well as next-gen consoles.
