Epic Games continue to talk about the PlayStation 5, and this time the studio has gone too far to indicate that the graphics demo based on the latest version of its Unreal Engine 5, would require an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER to run on a PC.
Of course, despite the fact that this demo was uploaded to 4K resolution, it is rumored that it actually does it at 1440p resolution in most of the time, while the frame rate would be much lower than 60 FPS, hovering rather the brand of those already famous and cinematic 30 FPS, so while it looks great, it must be recognized that it is not what was expected of the next generation of consoles.
However, the most interesting thing here is that the demo hasn’t used any dedicated hardware to run RayTracing, as it all ran on the shadow processors of the PlayStation 5.
Finally, Epic Games pointed out that these graphics were even more possible thanks to the use of the fast PlayStation 5 SSD, even going so far as to say that a normal hard drive or even a SATA SSD would not be fast enough to load the high resolution textures used in the demo, and an NVMe SSD would be needed to load the textures at the required speed on a PC. This logically will open the doors to future PC games that claim an SSD as a minimum requirement.
In this way, we can say that such level of quality in PC is equivalent to a GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER, also not to mention that DLSS 2.0 would easily run this demo at 4K @ 60 FPS resolution with no problems and without compromising visual quality.
