PS5 Variable Refresh Rate Launching Soon

This includes a list of games that will get a new patch for VRR compatibility.

Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that the PS5 Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) will be launched soon and now it has a list of games that will get the benefit via game patch.

PS5 Variable Refresh Rate Release Date and Requirement

According to SIE, the PS5 will finally get VRR later this week globally. No specific date was revealed, but it was advised that PS5 owners should be connected to the internet to get this feature. They should have an HDMI 2.1 VRR-compatible TVs and PC monitors to make this work.

What Does VRR Do?

With the VRR, it will dynamically sync the refresh rate of the display to the PS5 console’s graphical output. It will enhance visual performance for the games by minimizing or eliminating visual artifacts like frame pacing issues and screen tearing.

The gameplay will be smoother as scenes will be rendered seamlessly. The visuals will look crisper and the input lag gets reduced. PS5 games that got released previously will get a game patch to fully optimize for VRR. Future games will get VRR support on launch.

VRR will automatically be enabled when it rolls out later this week on the PS5 if it is connected to an HDMI 2.1 VRR-compatible TV or PC monitor. If players do not want to use VRR, they can turn it off under Screen and Video in system settings.

There is also the option to apply VRR to PS5 games that do not support it. It could improve video quality, but it could result to some bugs if it is not supported yet. Turn it off if it does make visuals look buggy.

PS5 VRR launches later this week.
