A new performance test for Cyberpunk 2077 for last-generation consoles by Digital Foundry has revealed that the jaguar CPU is largely to blame for the game’s various issues running on older hardware.
Interestingly, Cyberpunk 2077 reportedly runs the most stable on the PS4 Pro in regards to last-generation hardware, and actually performs more reliably than the more powerful Xbox One X despite the lower CPU power.
The one issue with this theory is Xbox One X – its CPU is faster than PS4 Pro’s, yet the Pro routinely beats it in performance terms across the board, albeit by varying degrees.
Another thing to note is that the Xbox Series S, the slightly less powerful version of Microsoft’s next-generation family of consoles, offers a more consistent performance. This demonstrates that lack of memory isn’t the main issue, as it features less usable RAM than the Xbox One X.
Cyberpunk 2077 is now available for PS4, PC and Xbox One, and is playable on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S via backwards compatibility.
CD Projekt RED earlier this week admitted that the game was able to pass certification for current-gen hardware as format holders Sony and Microsoft trusted the studio to fix the game’s bugs in time for release.
