Those who have been fortunate enough to get their hands on an Xbox Series X so far have been given access to an early preview version of Codemasters' Dirt 5, and this is particularly interesting because the game supports the ability to run at 120 frames per-second on compatible TVs and monitors.

Unfortunately, the likes of YouTube only allows us to see up to 60 frames at once, so you're not going to notice a benefit in the video above (which was also only captured at 1080p), but the big takeaway is that when playing in the 120Hz mode, the game appears to run at a smooth, near-locked 120fps.

Here's what VentureBeat's Jeff Grubb had to say about this option:

"Having twice the amount of frames per-second is actually a big difference, it really does make a difference. It looks smoother, but it [also] helps you with reaction times, and that feels really nice in a way that console games haven't felt this good ever. And that's one of my big takeaways here."

The downside to all of this, as expected, is that there are some notable differences in visual quality between the 120Hz mode and the other two modes at your disposal (Image Quality and Frame Rate). Examples of this appear to include more instances of pop-in and heavily reduced crowds.

And of course, only those with supported TVs and monitors will be able to take advantage of this mode anyway, so it might not be something for you. If you've been looking forward to playing Dirt 5 in 120fps though, you can rest assured that it reportedly runs very smoothly indeed.
