Sony PlayStation Variable refresh rate

After an entire year and a half of awaited announcements, Sony has finally announced that it will fulfill its promises. This week Sony announced on its blog that it would start the roll of VRR support this week to an assortment of popular games.

In its blog, the company didn’t provide when the rollout would happen or whether it would begin in specific regions. The company only said that it would be accessible worldwide shortly. Gaming with variable refresh rates has been accessible on PC for quite a while now -and – for a time -and allows the game’s speed to alter according to the screen. Previously, it was impossible to do this as most displays were set to run at 60Hz or 30Hz.

The past was when features such as V-Sync maintained the frame rate at 60Hz or 30Hz for consoles. There was no choice to operate at 90Hz or 45Hz on older monitors without the ability to change the refresh rate of the display. VRR alters; this allows the refresh rate to adjust dynamically. This eliminates visual artifacts which are caused by screen tears.

Sony promises that the update will give more fluid gameplay, and they’re true. From personal experience, games are more fluid, provided that the monitor is synced with them. In recent seasons, the ideal gaming environment has seen lower resolution and high refresh rates for quick and responsive gaming within the PC world. This contrasts with lower frame rates and more high-resolution gaming, such as 4K 60Hz. Most gamers would like 1440p at 120Hz, for instance.

Sony says that games need to be updated to be compatible with VRR. That is why only a handful of games support it when they the time of launch. In addition, all of the games (above) will have patches. The patch is part of the rollout and will be released over the next few weeks. Sony states that you can activate it for games that aren’t patched but can’t guarantee positive outcomes. It also notes that the results will differ based on your game and the type of display you’re using.
All you require to experience the latest VRR experience is a fair game and a display with at least an HDMI 2.1 connectivity. The upgraded version of HDMI boosts connectivity speed from 18Gb/s with 2.0 to 48Gb/s with 2.1. It also lets you set resolutions up to 10K and refresh rates of up to 120Hz. HDMI 2.1 isn’t available across all TVs and monitors, so if you’d like to benefit from this feature, make sure that you have or buy the right panel to support it. In the world of monitors, it isn’t easy to locate and is also often unneeded. DisplayPort 1.4a can handle the majority of VRR motion just fine, unless when it’s 4K. This move by Sony places it on the same level as the Xbox Series X/S competitors that have been able to support VRR for a long time since its launch.
