The new consoles from Sony and Microsoft PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are very similar to each other. However, they do have some differences. In terms of visual display options, many have pointed out the absence of the variable refresh rate (VRR), which even Microsoft consoles of the past generation (Xbox One S and Xbox One X) have. . However, this will change in the future.
Sony released the PlayStation 5 a few weeks ago, but some features are not available yet. Some that stand out is the support for the variable refresh rate, which the Xbox Series X | S does present, which made fans think that the function would never be available on the console.
In case you missed it: It is not yet possible to expand the SSD storage of the PlayStation 5, but you will be able to do so thanks to a future update.
PlayStation 5 will be compatible with VRR technology
However, through the official PlayStation website, Sony confirmed that by means of the HDMI 2.1 cable “the hardware of the PlayStation 5 supports the variable refresh rate.” Although it is not yet possible to find this function on the console, the company said that it will enable it through a “future system software update”, so that users will be able to take advantage of games compatible with this technology, as well as to televisions that also support it.
In case you don’t know, one of the benefits of the variable refresh rate is that it allows next-generation games, especially those that offer 60 fps or more, to display better on the screens, as it prevents problems such as tearing or problems with vertical synchronization.
The bad news is that Sony did not specify the date when it will release this update.
