Right, but the assets on the PS4 disc are FOR the PS4, and the assets on the PS5 disc are for the PS5 version.The PS4 was when consoles moved to x86 from PowerPC so there was a reason you couldn't just put a PS3 disc into a PS4. However the current gen consoles are just souped-up versions of their previous generation counterparts which is why backwards compatibility is a non-issue this gen and universally works.
If you put a PS4 disc into the PS5 you play the PS4 version, unless you pay for the PS5 assets.
If the only difference is improved framerate, then it's a scam.
But it's higher polycounts, better textures, and can even be a different renderer.
