PlayStation 5 getting variable refresh rate support this week: Here are the details

Sony announced the availability of variable refresh rate (VRR), for its PlayStation 5 console. After you have received the update, VRR is automatically enabled for compatible games when your PS5 console connects to an HDMI 2.0 VRR-compatible television or monitor. It can be disabled in the system settings under Screen and Video.

On HDMI 2.1 compatible TVs and monitors (PC or laptop), VRR dynamically synchronizes the display’s refresh rate with the PS5 console. It improves the visual performance of PS5 games, reducing or eliminating screen tearing and frame pacing problems. The company stated that gameplay is smoother in PS5 games because scenes are rendered seamlessly and graphics look sharper.

These titles’ PS5 versions will soon receive patches that enable VRR support.
