All these graphic modes and VRR / 120Hz / HDR / HGIG / DTM / 40fps / frame rate caps / ray tracing / etc is what made me sell my PS5 and go back to the simplicity of the Switch. No frills. Just 1080p SDR, clean simple UI. I’m getting old.
I get you. There is a bit too many bad modes.
I would be fine if there were max 2 modes and maybe vrr fps unlock. but it's getting a bit out of hand.
Nowhere it states that performance mode will have worse shadows, lod and vegetation. If anything, it should be just resolution.
quality mode nowadays - usually terribly laggy 30fps. In hogwarts defense. Their 30fps mode is fine.
Performance mode? 60fps but vaseline.
40fps seems to be the sweetspot but you never know
