Sony’s next-gen console is already available for purchase, and it seems that demand is high in the market. But unfortunately, we are still dealing with limited quantities of the next-gen console. The manufacturer earlier confirmed that it had reserved M.2 SSD expansion support for its ‘future update’. But now the company has again proved that another feature will be arriving via a software update.
The feature is none other than a variable refresh rate or VRR. It’s worth knowing that Sony is still planning on launching the part in the future update. But, Microsofts Xbox Series S|X has already supported the feature since its launch. VRR allows the Series S|X to alter the TV’s refresh rate to the in-game framerate.
In its blog, Sony stated, “PS5 hardware supports Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) through 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.”
The company is yet to outline its plan to enable VRR or M.2 SSD expansion support. But some of the famous games like DIRT 5 and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla already support VRR, and more games are expected to follow suit. The Series X and Series S has the advantage of VRR support, but Sony’s console has the advantage of its powerful hardware. With the release of VRR, Sony could very well gain a tremendous advantage over its rival.
