Sony PlayStation 5 VRR Support: How It Works

For the feature to work, Sony says you need a TV or a PC monitor that is compatible to run the technology, and for that, you need the HDMI 2.1 port. This move is rather strange because Sony is limiting the number of users who can enjoy the goodness of VRR through their console, as the older PlayStation models come with HDMI 2.0 for connectivity.

The new games launching should get VRR support by default, while the older games can become compatible with an update patch from the developers.

Sony is also giving PlayStation 5 users the choice to either automatically enable VRR to all games, even the unsupported ones. You can also do it manually for each game to get the best results. But from our experience, we suggest you don’t enable VRR for unsupported titles, as it could pose some issues while gaming.
