Does PS5 system software update slightly improve game processing speed?
in version 21.02-04.00.00, you can add an external SSD and increase the storage by connecting to the M.2 slot prepared in advance on PS5.
The games tested by Mr. Reed was Control Ultimate Edition and Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition, and the frame was set to “photo mode” that removes the frame rate limit of 30 fps.
Reed reports that playing both games with version 21.02-04.00.00 was still 1-3% faster, even with a margin of error set to 1%. Ray tracing and lifting frame rate limits may be conditioned for faster processing, Reed Better said. In addition, since the games can make the same settings limited, it is not possible to verify whether the processing speed will increase in other games.
