As we’ve entered a new generation of game consoles, framerate and performance analysis videos have grown in popularity. So far the best outlet for these types of videos remains Digital Foundry. I am not the most discerning of gamer when it comes to frame rates but I always find their technical analysis videos insightful. (If you missed their analysis on July’s divisive Halo Infinite footage, go back and watch that!)
Their latest video is focused on the Hivebusters DLC update to the Xbox Series S/X’s Gears 5, but there are some other great tidbits in here as well especially about how the communicate their findings with developers on recent titles like Gears, Devil May Cry 5, and DiRT 5. And in the case of Gears 5, with the Hivebusters update, The Coalition has appeared to solve all of Digital Foundry’s previous findings regarding performance flaws.
