PGA 2K21 on PS5

Based on what I can find, the PS5 runs the game the same as the PS4 Pro, is that correct? (My understanding of that is that it is 1600P locked at 30 frames per second). Does anyone know if this is true and if it is going to stay this way on PS5?

I have the game for the PC but my gaming PC is starting to show its age (GTX 1060). I can play 4K on high settings at around 40-45 FPS. Or I can go down to down resolution and get 60.

I was considering buying the game for PS5 since it is on sale but if my performance is essentially the same (or worse) than PC it makes no sense.

It would seem the PS5 should have the horsepower to run this game 4K 60FPS (old Xbox X could do 4K 30fps). Dont know enough about programming but one would think if PC has a settings tab they should easily be able to change settings for PS5.

Anyway, anybody play this game on PS5 and have any insights? Is it 60fps? Is it 4K? Do the bushes, trees, etc not show from long distance and populate on screen as ball approaches (don't like this on PC when turning down settings).

They won't come out and say it or confirm it, but I'm pretty sure that's what they did, as they just made it backward compatible only. On the XBox One X, PGA TOUR 2K21 looks and flows at the same 30 FPS @ 2160p, as TGC 2019. The PS4 Pro version of TGC 2019 was natively rendered at 1600p @ 30 FPS. They were quick to add that it got upscaled to 4K. Two weeks later they wiped the forum and lost that post (I have it in my archives and shared it to at least three other forums), and haven't said a word about resolutions, frame rates, or anything relative to graphics quality.

I've got a GTX 1070 and I can play the game at 50 to 62 FPS on most courses in 4K. It makes a HUGE difference in the way this game feels and looks. I think it's essential for proper enjoyment and management of the game's tempo component.

It's currently strapped to 30 FPS on both next-gen consoles. You're asking all the right questions and I can tell you this; as the owner of both the PC and XBox One X versions of the game, it's not worth buying it for a PS5 or an XBox Series X, since they're at least currently shackled to 30 FPS, probably because HB Studios has the vsync locked at 30 Hz. I'm hoping they're going to unlock the vsync so PS5 and Series X owners can play the game at 60 FPS and get the benefits of Variable Refresh Rates of their consoles and their VRR capable displays. It would be such an easy software switch to add.

I've quit playing the game on the XBox One X, even though that's where most of my friends play the game. It's just too frustrating trying to manage the critical tempo component at 30 FPS... not only that, but it sort of feels like playing underwater compared to the unrestrained feel of 60 FPS!
