Analysis Shows Valhalla Running Best on PS5
A recent Digital Foundry analysis by John Linneman suggests that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla runs best on PS5, with the Xbox Series X coming in at a close second. The game runs at a more consistent frame rate according to the analysis and generally improved performance on the PS5. While Xbox has recently addressed these next-gen issues, it looks like Valhalla is among the titles running best on PS5 among the next-gen consoles. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is available right now for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, Google Stadia, and PC.
“The key takeaway is that PlayStation 5 is much closer to the 60fps target more of the time, while Xbox Series X can struggle,” said the Digital Foundry by John Linneman. “In fact, at its worst, we noted PS5 delivering a 15 percent performance advantage over its Microsoft equivalent in identical scenarios… I would describe the PS5 version (of Valhalla) as being pretty much a stable 60fps experience with occasional little dips, the kind of thing you’d expect on consoles.” Though Linneman is throwing some shade at console gaming in general, it looks like Valhalla runs best on PS5.
“Series X definitely needs some work because if you’re playing on a normal display the tearing is extremely distracting like it’s just not good enough,” continued John Linneman. “But the problem is obviously you can’t expect people to go invest in a new display just to solve problems like this. This is still on the developer. Work needs to be done because the vast majority of people are going to be playing without VRR and experiencing tonnes of tearing.”
