However, CD Projekt RED had assured that the next-gen patch would allow play in 4K at 60 FPS on PS5 and Xbox Series X. Here are the results of the performance analysis conducted by Digital Foundry.

At the end of the day, the Xbox Series X is doing a little better than the PlayStation 5. It’s still not enough to reach the 2160p definition promised by the next-gen patch. In performance mode, Microsoft’s console oscillates between 1382p and 1782p. The two consoles are maintained at 1440p with ray-tracing enabled, which also blocks at 30 fps. Given its characteristics, the Xbox Series S cannot offer ray-tracing on Cyberpunk 2077.

Finally, Digital Foundry concluded that visual improvements to Cyberpunk 2077 by the next-gen patch are rather minimal. For the moment, the only solution to play Cyberpunk 2077 in the best conditions is to have a PC muscular enough to support ray-tracing and 4K at 60 FPS.
