The newest gaming consoles from Sony and Microsoft are going to arrive at the end of this year. Microsoft seems to be ahead in the race that is just going on between these manufacturers. Microsoft has announced more about the Xbox Series X compared to Sony with the PlayStation 5. Microsoft has also confirmed that the Xbox Series X will support optical tracking and VRS variable frame rate technology. These technologies are latest in market and we don’t know what they will offer.However, former engineer, Matt Hargett, believes that Sony will have some pleasant surprises at launch. As for the VRS variable frame rate, Hargett explained why Sony has been reluctant to confirm the technology. He said that VRS is a “hard-to-speak technology”, whether it brings benefits or disadvantages depends on the game. Thus, it is not a straight-forward technology. Its benefits not only depends on the game but also on the scene of the game.

“That’s right. VRS is a new DX12 feature that allows developers to change the shading rate within a single frame, and selectively reduce the level of detail in some areas of the screen, including deep shadows. When it is active, it improves the game performance, however, there is no noticeable effect on image quality”.VRS technology can improve performance and reduce image quality. This technology gives developers some flexibility. Its performance depends on how the game developers choose.

Including more details about the VRS technology, Matt Hargett also said Sony Playstation 5 has a lot of features that are not pubic. According to him, the PlayStation may seem worse than XSX on paper. However, when all the specs are public, we may bring change to our reviews about the console.

In all, we can not talk about the practical experience of either of the consoles (PS5 & XSX). We need to wait a few months more for these devices to launch.
