Set the screen resolution.
4K Video Transfer Rate
Adjust the transfer rate for 4K resolution video. If you experience flickering on your screen, try selecting -1 or -2 to limit transfer speed, and possibly improve picture quality.
Allow the refresh rate to adjust in real time while using TVs and games that support VRR (variable refresh rate). Results vary depending on the TV you're using and if the PS5 game you are playing supports VRR.
PS5™ consoles support VRR through HDMI 2.1. Other display standards such as NVIDIA G-SYNC® and AMD FreeSync™ are not supported.
Turn on Apply to Unsupported Games to improve video quality for some PS5 games that do not support VRR. If you experience unexpected behavior while playing games, turn off this setting.
Turn HDR (high dynamic range) on or off.
Enables fine brightness adjustments and optimised HDR rendering.
Deep Colour Output
Enables smooth image rendering.
Change this only when you use an HDMI device that doesn't send RGB range information correctly.
The PS5 console supports the HDMI 2.1 specification, and it also supports 4K 120Hz video output. As this emerging technology isn’t fully supported in the market, Sony Interactive Entertainment is working with TV manufacturers to improve performance and bring the best experience to console users. During this transition period, you may experience some issues with 4K 120Hz.
If you encounter a situation where there’s nothing displayed on your TV when the PS5 console is expected to be outputting a 4K 120Hz signal, or the signal is displayed as 1080p 120Hz, please consider the following:
ALLM stands for Auto Low Latency Mode. When you connect your PS5 console using an HDMI cable, the console sends an ALLM signal to the output device. If your TV is able to support this mode, ALLM is enabled, and your output device starts in Low Latency Mode.
Do all TVs with HDMI 2.1 have ALLM?
No, please check the instruction manual that came with the display device to check if it supports ALLM.
What cable is needed for PS5 consoles to use ALLM?
The HDMI cable included with the PS5 console is recommended. Otherwise, an Ultra-High-Speed HDMI Cable that supports HDMI 2.1 should support ALLM.
What HDMI port do I need to use on my TV?
If there is an HDMI port that supports HDMI 2.1, please use it to connect your PS5 console.
