A year and a half after entering the market , PS5 consoles are finally getting the VRR ( Variable Refresh Rate ) function. It allows you to synchronize the frequency of the gaming device and the TV, providing better playback of dynamic scenes without frame breaks.
Sony said that the long-awaited update with VRR will be released within the next few days. We are talking about the HDMI 2.1 version , meanwhile, the company has not announced anything about the other two versions of this feature – AMD FreeSync and Nvidia G-Sync .
VRR requires the PS5 console to be connected via an HDMI 2.1 port to a compatible TV or monitor. When you launch games that support this feature, it will be activated automatically. For other games, VRR can be activated manually through the Screen and Video menu item . However, in such a case, unforeseen visual effects may occur, according to Sony itself .
