Ps5. Review

SDS

I have the PS5. It's a small sample, but I played two ranked games and it felt like I was playing versus the CPU there was hardly any lag if any at all. I also do not use a monitor and it looks like I might not need one. I was really surprised, feels like a new game.

My first opponent took me to a major-league park and I didn't have trouble with the sinker, Can you believe that. lol

Let me start by saying that I do not have a PS5 yet, because it hasn't released yet where I'm from. But what I can tell you is that hardware hardly impacts latency; the networking infrastructure the game uses is still the very same. Therefore it's much more likely that you were just lucky to have a few good connections in a row and that the networking inconsistencies we've seen will remain the same.

You could be right, I also put it on high Performance mode and took the hit on the graphics...I played on 1080p.

You may be right, but I have seen reports of downloads occurring on PS5 much faster than on PS4, even when downloading to an external with PS4 games which would eliminate the SSD as a variable. Even with fast internet, the PS4 may have been the limiting factor for network connections which is less of an issue with the hardware in the PS5. Maybe that affects online game play as well?

That's a total guess as I have not compared the specs of both consoles internal components, and I'm no tech expert, so I could be wrong.

Download and upload speeds have nothing to do with latency. Also, the download speeds are 100% dictated by your ISP package. If you own a 300mbps download plan, you will download games at that speed max, the PS5 isn't going to magically make your internet connection capable of transferring files faster than that 300mbps.

SDS

Yeah guys I have made other posts about this. But the connection between you and your opponent GREATLY affects how your game will play. I also stated I have no problem quitting inning 1 when I notice major lag and or being called very late on fastballs that I know I didn't swing late on. Just not worth the 45 min [censored] show your about to put yourself through.

SDS

Cleaner/better connection to the internet via hardware doesnt effect latency? Learn something new everyday. Maybe its not latency and the ps4 failing under frame rates all year. But the ps5 does play better. Very simple.

If hardware doesn't have an impact on internet speed, why don't you buy my Gateway desktop from 2000, I'm sure your internet speed won't change at all.

Lots of "tech" people in here, none of them actually work in or study the field.

Ignore the gibberish.

I also heard that games load REALLY quick.

I don't recall ever saying that the PS5 would make your internet faster. What I did say was that, theoretically, if you have great internet from your ISP but the hardware isn't capable of keeping up with it, that could be an issue. I was referring to the PS4 as possibly being a bottleneck, so if the PS5 were more capable it could allow you to receive the type of connection your internet is actually providing.

Again, no clue if that is actually the case, but your argument regarding 300 mbps makes no sense based on what I said since in your scenario the internet is the limiting factor, not the hardware.

I've used 300mbps download speeds on my plan for years, and I downloaded everything on my PS4 with those exact same speeds. The point is that ping has very little to no correlation with download/upload speeds whatsoever.

there no place to buy ps5 u lucky

I'm going to wait until MLB 21 The Show comes out before buying a PS5. I also have to buy a 4K TV with HDMI 2.1 support to take full advantage of it, so need to save up the $Benjamins.

SDS

I've heard from a coworker about the HDMI 2.1 requirement for maximizing the PS5 in 4k.

Any of the users currently playing on the PS5 using HDMI 2.1, or just the standard 2.0? Also, 4k or no?

You can do 4K without HDMI 2.1 inputs. You need 2.1 if you want 4K/120hz. Anything else would be 4K/60hz.

I understand none of what has been said. I feel sorry for the best buy employee that has to help me when I try to repeat all of this.

Check ebay, the vultures are charging 9-12k minimum lol.

Mainly for the OCD losers who feel like they need to have it asap, while it has no real library yet

You could be right, I also put it on high Performance mode and took the hit on the graphics...I played on 1080p.

Where did u find high performance mode?
