The patch 1.05 for Cyberpunk 2077, the new and unfortunate (but potentially beautiful) role-playing game by CD Projekt RED, has been available for a few days. As you will know by now, the title presents considerable difficulties in terms of performance on the basic versions of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, while it behaves discreetly on PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One X and reaches good heights of quality on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S in backwards compatibility mode (since the versions specifically dedicated to the new consoles from Sony and Microsoft have not yet been published, nor is it yet known when we can have them in our hands).
Well, in relation to Patch 1.05 of the game, the YouTuber ElAnalistaDeBits has dedicated two interesting video comparisons (you can find them at the bottom of the news), to see how Cyberpunk 2077 behaves on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, and PlayStation 5, and on Microsoft consoles: Xbox One, Xbox One X and Xbox Series X. The results seem to show quite significant improvements in terms of performance and graphics.
On Microsoft consoles, for example, at some particular points, such as in V’s car chase scene, when he tries to smuggle material between the Badlands and Night City, the game on Xbox One X sees the frame rate double, which if before it was hovering around 15fps, now nailed to 30fps.
The patch 1.05 also affects the standard Xbox One version, where Cyberpunk 2077 even ran at about 12fps, while now the frame rate value manages to settle at least beyond 20fps (21-22fps is the evaluation made in the video). Finally, in terms of resolution, the Xbox One version of the latest CD Projekt RED effort is capable of dynamically switch between 720p and 900p, while on Xbox One X the resolution fluctuates between a minimum of 1224p and a maximum of 1368p.
Unfortunately, on Sony consoles, there doesn’t seem to be any noticeable improvements in terms of frame rate between the various versions (PS4, PS4 Pro, and PS5), but the version of the game on the base PlayStation 4 seems to at least boast sharper images.
Cyberpunk 2077 is available since December 10 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Windows PC, and Google Stadia. The versions specifically dedicated to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S should be launched in 2021.
