Early PS5 testing suggests that despite listing the tech sheets, VRR...

Sony has apparently still not found a way to support VRR on its consoles.

The variable update rate (VRR) is a well known function PS5 can support. When Sony officially released the console’s specs, the platform owner confirmed that VRR is supported on the console’s HDMI 2.1 port.

Unfortunately, the launch version of the PS5 doesn’t support VRR. Digital Foundry uncovered this strange void when they reviewed the console.

VRR is, of course, one of the most exciting features that we hope will become the next generation standard. This allows the display to adjust its refresh rate to match the game’s frame rate, avoiding or drastically reducing screen tears. The benefits of VRR are most evident in games where the frame rate cannot be set to 30 fps or 60 fps, as these slight dips are now much less noticeable to the user.

PS5 supports 4K at 120 fps, and the included cable can carry the full fat signal. So it’s a bit bizarre when VRR is missing, especially since Microsoft has supported the feature since the launch of Xbox One X and it certainly is there too, launch for Xbox Series X / S.

Note that PS5 games may not currently support VRR even if the console does it itself. In other words, there may simply be no games that use this feature, which would be a big problem as well.
