Upcoming: Variable refresh rate support for PS5
Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) is scheduled to be launched on PS5 in the next few months. On HDMI 2.1-compatible TV and PC displays, VRR will improve the visual experience of PS5 games by minimizing or eliminating visual interference (such as frame instability and picture tearing).
Previously released PS5 games can adapt to the VRR function through game patches, and future games may include support for VRR when they are released.
You can also choose to apply VRR to unsupported PS5 games. If there is any unexpected visual problem, you can turn this option off at any time.
