Would actually be hilarious if DFs XsX was having this issue and has resulted in the narrative that the PS5 is the better performing console in some games.
Edit: Because i dont think folks get it and are assuming im a MS warrior for this post.... obviously this isnt the case, i just think it would be hilarious if it was the case. Didnt think i needed to explain this but here we are
So this is something OS related, likely at the kernel level. At very least they need a critical firmware update. Wonder if it's something with the OS apps hypervisor layer, maybe the OS kernel is having an issue keeping the hypervisor layers synced and that's why game performance (in your case) is good but using apps causes the lower clocks.
