On the Horizon: Variable Refresh Rate Support on PS5
We are also glad that Variable refresh rate support is expected on PS5 in the coming months. On monitors and TVs compatible with HDMI 2.1, this setting dynamically synchronizes the display refresh rate with the video output of the PS5 console. As such, the visual performance of PS5 games will be enhanced by reducing or eliminating visual artifacts such as frame rate issues or screen tearing. Many PS5 games will be smoother, with instant scene rendering, sharper graphics, and reduced input lag. Previously released PS5 games can be fully optimized for variable refresh rates via a patch. Future games should have variable refresh rate support upon release.
Furthermore, you can also apply variable refresh rate to PS5 games that don’t support it.. This feature may improve video quality in some games. If you experience display problems, you can disable this option at any time. Both the variable refresh rate and this advanced setting can be enabled or disabled.
