Comparing the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided in a new video from the early portions of the game, Digital Foundry reveals that the PS4 version targets 1080p/30 frames-per-second, while the Xbox One version targets 900p/30fps.
Before going to a frame-rate test at 1:35, Digital Foundry talked about the resolution and visuals. “Thanks to a nice temporal anti-aliasing implementation, [the 900p resolution on Xbox One] actually looks better than you might think,” they said. “That said, some folks may not care for the aggressive sharpening filter in use here. It’s not bad per se, but an option might have been preferable. Motion blur haters can rejoice, however, as that feature is absent here, despite being shown off in some of the early media for the game.”
Although both consoles ran the first mission at a perfect 30fps, the opening scene (2:20) drops to 26fps – 29fps on PS4 and 21 – 28fps on Xbox One, and screen-tearing is present when the frame-rate drops. Once you get to the hub world though, things return to 30fps.
Finally, Digital Foundry compared the load times on each console after a death in the hub area. According to their test, loading took 28 seconds on PS4 and 41 seconds on Xbox One.
