It appears that Resident Evil 3 Remake may not have the same steady performance last year’s epic Resident Evil 2 Remake had. According to video game tech analysis site Digital Foundry, Capcom’s latest horror action game is a bit rough around the edges if you’re looking to play it on Xbox One X, hitting a frame rate of around 40 to 50fps in busier moments while its cut-scenes at times hit 30fps. While the resolution on Microsoft’s black box is 4K with evidence of temporal anti-aliasing, the frame rate leaves a lot to be desired.
That said, the Resident Evil 3 Remake PS4 Pro frame rate sticks closer to 60fps in most scenarios, perhaps a benefit of this version sticking to the 1620p resolution it had in the last game. However the Xbox One X has sharper bokeh depth of field in cut-scenes, better looking hair, and refined shadow edges versus Sony’s souped up console.
As for the standard PS4 and Xbox One? They run between 30 and 40fps with the latter even hitting the high 20s in some scenes. In terms of resolution, the PS4 sticks to 1080p while the Xbox One drops closer to 900p in some instances while having a softer image compared to the PS4. You can check out the full video right here.
It’ll be interesting to see if this remains the case when the game finally lands as these results were based on the recently released demo. The Resident Evil 3 Remake release date is April 3 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
