PS5 & Xbox Series X: Which Lies of P graphics mode is best?
If playing on PS5 or Xbox Series X, the best Lies of P graphics mode is the Performance mode - called "Performance-centred mode" which prioritises frame rate optimisation - over the Quality mode which favours high resolution.
This is because when exploring and engaging in combat in the city of Krat, the targetted 60FPS in Performance mode makes for a much smoother experience in gameplay.
What's more, the higher frame rate in Performance mode also promotes better competency for the player in general - with the more sleek movement of enemies giving the opportunity for improved timings on dodging or achieving a Perfect Guard.
However, the best graphics mode in Lies of P for you may be different to fit your playstyle. To clarify, the performance specifications for each Lies of P graphics mode are as follows:
|Graphics mode||Resolution||FPS (Frame rate)|
|Performance-centred||2160p (Upscaled from 1080p native resolution)||Target 60FPS|
|Quality-centred||2160p (Upscaled from 1440p native resolution)||Target 30FPS|
|Quality-centred (with High Frame Rate Mode enabled) - 120Hz displays only||2160p (Upscaled from 1440p native resolution)||Target 40FPS|

How does Lies of P Quality mode compare to Performance mode?
Although the same resolution on paper post-upscaling, the higher native resolution of the Lies of P Quality mode boasts enhanced visuals in the form of improved reflections, shadows, lighting, and draw distance - which is great if you prefer more dazzling displays.
On the other hand, the gameplay experience base Quality-centred mode is far more sluggish when compared to Life of P's Performance mode. From the camera panning and sword swinging to even to fall of raindrops, the overall feel of the FPS in the Quality mode does feel like it's chugging along if those traits are noticeable to you.
Enabling High Frame Rate Mode does offset that gripe to an extent with the upgraded visuals of Quality Mode intact, but the higher-targetted 60FPS of Performance-centred Mode does make for more polished gameplay altogether - despite there being some minor drops when in combat as shown in a performance test by Danial ZH on YouTube.
