VRR is now officially available on the PS5. Sony has unlocked the feature in the latest firmware update and those of you who own a supported TV or monitor can now enjoy Variable Refresh Rate. If you don’t know, VRR is a cool feature that dynamically syncs the refresh rate of your display with the GPU. This in turn reduces frame pacing to deliver a smoother experience with reduced input lag and no artefacts.
Now that VRR is out, developers need to enable the feature on their games. However, some PS5 games already have VRR enabled which is great news for users who own them. This means all you need to do is turn on VRR on your TV or monitor, enable the feature on the console under Sound and Screen and boot up one of these supported games.
But what games currently have VRR support on PS5? There is a good number so far. Some games include Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, Destiny 2, Ratchet and Clank and more. Here’s a full list of supported VRR games on PS5.
Games with VRR on PS5

Keep in mind that Sony has also added a feature on the PS5 that improves games without VRR support if you are playing them on a VRR-enabled console. So if you want to benefit from this, you need to simply leave the VRR feature enabled on the console. Not all games will show a drastic difference between VRR and no VRR so don’t expect any miracles here.
As the months go by, we are expected to get more VRR support for more titles across the board. Find out more on the PlayStation Blog here.
