The insane settings on Gears 5 for SSR add a variable glossy properly to make reflections darken and stretch and contact harden (aka realistic properties). The Ultra reflections below that used on XSX do not have that, so SSR is uniformly sharp and innacurrately shiny.

Wow. Pretty impressive from SSR. Love all the new innovative ways Devs are taking already, rather than relying on brute force RTX.

IT is not exactly a new approach to SSR but one that was developed for frostbite around 2015 and exists for quite some time.

SSGI is the same lighting tech they use in unreal engine 5 demo?

No - Lumen is very different but has some screen space elements

Not sure if this has been asked but here's a question Alex. Do you think the XSX is capable of the Insane setting but chose to use Ultra because it is more noticable to people?

I assume the Ultra setting was chosen because that means the GPU is less stressed than "insane" and the dynamic resolution scaler can keep the resolution higher more often. I presume at "insane" - the expense of that setting would make the GPU dip res a lot more.

For tech yeah, but for mainstream XSX one is "better" due to the feeling of first look. Like if you don't explain many people doesn't even aware PC insane setting actually is harder to do and more advanced.

The ultra ssr reflections that XSX uses will uniformly make all surfaces this Level of shininess essentially: regardless of viewing angle or Material. It does not look better at all - it is not how reflections work in real life and not how the game developers made the materials

Kinda goes to show you how developers can use lower graphics and trick consumers into thinking they're better 🤣 Imo since I'm not a game dev I do think the bottom one is better looking so they got me as well

The game is using more effects than PC version. I don't think XSX can be called "lower graphics" at all.
