March 23 news, according to THE VERGE reported that Sony has officially confirmed that it plans to launch the VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) function in the next few months, applicable to PS5, and there is no official support for VRR technology of the game, you can also force the opening of the function, but not necessarily effective.
For VRR technology, you may still be relatively unfamiliar, briefly explain the role of this function. The picture we see in the screen is actually generated by the GPU in the mobile phone, computer, and game console, the picture has been changing, and the number of frames generated by the GPU per second will be unstable, and we usually call the number of frames generated per second "frame rate".
The problem is that the display also has its own refresh rate, the GPU renders 500 frames per second, but the display refresh rate is only 60Hz, and some frames will be inserted into the displayed screen, causing a serious tearing sensation and making the player feel dizzy.

PS5 is generally plugged in to play on the TV, but many TVs already support 4K resolution + 120Hz refresh rate. Playing AAA games at 4K resolution, the frame rate is likely to be less than 60, lower than the refresh rate of the screen, which causes some pictures to appear multiple times, giving people a feeling of dropped frames and stuttering.
The significance of VRR technology lies in this, it can dynamically adjust the refresh rate of the display, so that it is always the same as the frame rate of GPU output, reducing screen tearing, repetitive screen and other issues, players will obviously feel smoother when playing the game.
For PS5 players, the update of this technology is significant. New games are constantly upgrading their graphics and demanding performance, but the PS5 will only be updated for many years. Wait for five or six years, PS5 has not been retired, but the performance is difficult to 4K 60FPS running 5 years after the game, then the user's game experience must be very poor.

The launch of this technology, whether a few years later, or today, can greatly enhance the player's gaming experience. However, Sony did not announce the specific time of the launch of VRR technology, only a few months later.
After years of Sony's efforts, there are more and more domestic PlayStation hosts, and after the National Bank edition is launched, it takes a long time to add money to buy it. Compared with the PC, the disadvantage of the console is that there are fewer games, and the advantage is that there are enough AAA masterpieces, and you can buy discs, and after playing them, you can return the blood with second-hand blood. At present, the graphics card has not returned to the original price, an RTX 3060 Ti is more expensive than the PS5, and gamers can still consider buying a PS5 to play games.
