Arkane Studio's new shooter offers three different graphics modes on PlayStation 5, and there is a noticeable difference in performance for each one of these settings. According to a new video analysis, there is a clear winner when it comes to the best graphics mode for Deathloop running on the PS5.

Bethesdas new shooter Deathloop was finally released last week, and even though there is also a PC version of the game, it will remain a timed console exclusive for the PlayStation 5 for an entire year. Since the PS5 version of Deathloop (from US$66 on Amazon) offers three different graphics modes, players might be confused which one is the best setting to play the game.

Digital Foundry is committed to answer this burning question, which is why the team has thoroughly analyzed all graphics modes of Deathloop and has released a video that perfectly illustrates that there is a clear winner in the competition for the best graphics mode on PS5. The performance mode with its almost flawless 60fps is clearly the best way to play Deathloop, even though the game is only rendered in 1440p in that setting.

The visual quality mode on the other hand increases the resolution to a respectable 1836p, but the game does not manage to run at 60fps with that setting. Instead, the frame rate is consistently below 60fps, and it even drops into the 40s during action-packed sequences. Last but not least, the raytracing mode is a significant visual upgrade for the game, as it offers ray traced global illumination and sun shadows. In that mode, Deathloop runs at a stable 30fps, which wouldn't be an issue if it wasn't for the annoying frame pacing irregularities, which make the game feel like it stutters. Until these problems are fixed in a future update or patch, the performance mode seems to be the best way to play Deathloop on the PlayStation 5.

My fascination for technology goes back a long way to the Pentium II era. Modding, overclocking and treasuring computer hardware has since become an integral part of my life. As a student, I further developed a keen interest in mobile technologies that can make the stressful college life so much easier. After I fell in love with the creation of digital content while working in a marketing position, I now scour the web to bring you the most exciting topics in the world of tech. Outside the office, I’m particularly passionate about motorsports and mountain biking.
