Following its impressive demo, which attracted over one million players, Gran Turismo Sport has garnered attention for its success in combining smooth performance with great visuals. It attempts to maintain a locked 60fps, allowing for additional responsiveness in control and an overall better-looking presentation.
Eurogamer’s “DigitalFoundry” division have offered further analysis, measuring the exact frame-rates achieved, as well as offering their expert assessment of the game’s use of HDR.
Commenting on the game’s smoothness, DF’s John Linneman wrote: “We had a difficult time encountering any slowdown during gameplay, meaning that if it does occur, it should be rare. The races all play back very smoothly at 60 frames per second – a level of performance often missed in the PS3 installments. PS4 Pro owners also get the chance to run replays at 1080p60 – while base PS4 and the high-res Pro mode operate these at 30fps instead. It’s not a perfect lock but the results look brilliant…”
As for HDR, Linneman summed it up as: “Many games benefit from HDR, but with GT Sport, the upgrade is so pronounced and so beautiful, you’re clearly not getting the full experience without it.”
