I tested the VRR on the PS5 and it’s great – but the Xbox Series X does it better

It’s been a long time coming, but PS5 VRR support is finally here. If you have a compatible HDMI 2.1 monitor, you can now enjoy a smoother gaming experience in supported PS5 games and wave goodbye to distracting screen tearing in the process (though you may need to restart your PS5 if you can not watch VRR in the video settings as there is no no system update is required).

During my testing – where I tried a wide range of PS5 games using an LG OLED CX – I came most impressed from there. However, Sony’s implementation of VRR has a few quirks that you need to be aware of, and as it stands, I do not think it is quite as good as Microsoft’s response to VRR on the Xbox Series X | S.
