Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition is one of Capcom’s first titles on the PS5 and Xbox Series X. The special edition brings a ton of optimizations with it in the form of RayTracing, Enhanced visuals, a higher resolution and plenty of other shiny bells and whistles. However, the star of the show here is Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition PS5 loading a stage in a speedy 2 seconds.
Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition PS5 is truly a speed demon
In some early testing done, it seems that Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition on the PS5 is truly well optimized. The same stage was loaded on the PS5, PC, Xbox One X, and while a different level was loaded on the PS4 for some reason, we can still give it the same credit as the Xbox One X timing.
You can see that the PS5 achieves a loading time of only a few seconds, while the PC is a very close second contender.
It is safe to say that it would be difficult to make a PC that matches the power of the PS5 in the same price range as the console itself, which is what makes the loading time truly exceptional. When you also consider that the PS5 is giving almost the same performance and visual output of an equally more expensive PC.
The comparison with the Xbox One X and PS4 could have been altered to accommodate the Xbox Series X/S instead, but this could be because the consoles may not have been available for testing.
Sony has recently done a lot of innovation when it comes to loading screens, with the first being Ghost of Tsushima, and a more recent example being the latest patch for The Last of Us Remastered’s secret new patch which has cut the loading times by a whole 50%-75%.
Keep in mind that Ghost of Tsushima and Last of Us Remastered are both PS4 titles, and Sony has managed to work their loading screen magic at the end of the console’s life cycle, which in itself is a separate work of wonder.
We can definitely hope to see speedy results on the PS5 when it releases later in November.
