Sony has just announced through the PS Blog that variable refresh rate (VRR) support will be available worldwide for PlayStation 5 later this week. As a result, TVs and PC monitors with an HDMI 2.1 connection benefit from a sharper picture and experience fewer FPS drops.
According to the Japanese company VRR “Improves the visual performance of PS5 games by minimizing or eliminating visual artifacts such as frame rate issues and horizontal screen breaksTherefore, the gameplay becomes “softer” as the scenes are rendered.
Also, previously released games for PlayStation 5 can also be fully optimized for technology if they receive fixes from their own developers. In addition, upcoming games may include a novelty similar to their debuts.
Sony also provided a list of titles that will receive updates according to VRR. Look:
- Astro playroom
- Call of Duty: Vanguard
- Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
- destiny 2
- Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition
- LIKA 5
- Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered
- Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
- Ratchet & Clank: In Another Dimension
- Resident Evil Village
- The small wonderland of Tina
- Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege

How to turn VRR on and off on PlayStation 5
Finally, Sony revealed that after the update is released, the VRR will be automatically enabled for compatible titles on the PlayStation 5 – that is, of course, if the console is connected to a TV or monitor via HDMI 2.1.
To disable this option, go to “Display and Video” in System Preferences. In addition, the player also has an additional option “Use VRR for non-compatible games”. If enabled, the games you enjoy may have unexpected visual results.
