This will allow for playing VRR-compatible titles on HDMI 2.1 displays.

The PS5 has been received pretty well since launching on November 12th in North America and November 19th across the world. However, it does have its share of limitations compared to the Xbox Series X. Lack of variable refresh rate is one but it shouldn’t be for long.

In an update to its ultimate FAQ for the PS5, Sony has confirmed that the PS5 hardware does support variable refresh rate via HDMI 2.1. “After a future system software update, PS5 owners will be able to use the VRR feature of compatible TVs when playing games that support VRR.” HDMI 2.1-compatible 4K TVs aren’t super-prominent in the market yet but those who own one will no doubt appreciate the support.

Of course, there are other features that Sony needs to incorporate like SSD storage expansion support. The company has already confirmed that this is being reserved for a “future” update. But like with variable refresh rate, it’s unclear when exactly it will be added.

In the meantime, check out our review of the PlayStation 5 here and stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
