Weekly review and outlook: Unreal Engine 5 scores ahead of Computex


Before Computex 2022 starts next week with keynotes from AMD and Nvidia, Unreal Engine 5 in particular scored well this week. However, two different projects also caused different opinions.

Ford Sync 4 in Focus and Mach-E

In last week's test, most readers were interested in how Ford's Sync 4 infotainment system performed in the Mustand Mach-E, in which it has been available since spring 2021, and especially in the new Ford Focus, in which it is included the facelift is now also available for the first time. Compared to Sync 3, Sync 4 can clearly improve in all areas: speed, better menu structure and graphic quality of the displays. In connection with a smartphone, the large display in the Mach-E is particularly appealing, since CarPlay is already optimized for it, but Android Auto is not. However, Ford does not give a guarantee that Sync 4 will be used in all new models in the future. Especially in the high-volume Fiesta it will stay with Sync 3 for the time being.

Unreal Engine 5 in a double pack at the top

In the reports of the past week, on the other hand, the interest in the Unreal Engine is twice as great. On the one hand, the company Quixel, which belongs to Epic Games, demonstrated how quickly almost photorealistic virtual worlds can be created in the new Unreal Engine 5. On the other hand, the Unreal Engine 5 with 8K textures and ray tracing could be tried out in EzBench and the own PC could be pushed to its limits. While the result in the Quixel demo is impressive, which is undoubtedly also due to the objects in the real world digitized by 3D scanning, the opinions on EzBench were rather cautious, because what is shown does not do justice to the enormous hardware demands, even if it is different ray tracing affects each object and leaves are rendered individually.
