Hi all, just after some info.

Has there been a comparison done between the two consoles involving lap times?

Maybe it’s me, but the group I race with are a mixture of PS4 &PS5 users and there definitely seems to be something in this as all who are using a PS5 have improved over their previous times. Whether this is an actual difference in speed, consistency or general feel making a difference it’s hard to tell.

Just wanted peoples thoughts on this.

Thanks for any help gents.

As a PS5 owner I can say that graphically the game doesn't appear to run any differently, that said the DualSense controller seems to have more granularity in terms of throttle, brake and steering input - so it could be down to that, perhaps?

PS4 up till November 24. A+/S rating 51,000DR on a T300 and TLCM pedals. Switched to a PS5 and OLED TV November 25 and raced like that. I improved some of my best lap times. March 18 upgraded to a Fanatec DD1 podium series and V3 pedals. Since adjusting to that I have improved all my best lap times. Some were quite an improvement. Currently sitting around 66-67,000DR. I will say that during this process since I have also worked worked super hard on improving my driving technique in order to lower my times. I’m not sure what any of the upgrades have to do with it since I can factor in busting my butt working on what little skill set I have.

Thanks for the reply’s gents.

My set up is a T300RS with T-LCM pedals. Many of the guys I race with upgraded to Fanatecs when they had their sale, but most have recently upgraded to PS5s which seems to have coincided with their gain of pace. We only have 2 drivers using the new controller one of which has had a large jump in pace.

Maybe I'm imagining all this or it’s my pace that has decreased. My consistency has though through pushing harder to keep up!

You answered the question I was going to ask. Thanks.
