Sony’s PS5 is getting a variable refresh rate in an update this week
Sony has confirmed that its latest gaming console PlayStation 5 will get Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) support in an update that will roll out this week. This feature will require a TV or PC monitor that uses HDMI 2.1 and is compatible with Variable Refresh Rate.
