3D audio support for built-in TV speaker
Experience immersive virtual surround sound with 3D Audio support for your TV.
Tempest 3D AudioTech is accessible directly from your built-in TV speakers when you’re playing games and watching videos on your PS5 console.
Variable Refresh Rate (VRR)
You can enhance the visual performance of compatible PlayStation®5 games by enabling Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) on your PS5 console. This allows your PS5 console to sync the refresh rate of your display to the PS5 console’s graphical output on HDMI 2.1 VRR-compatible TVs and PC monitors. Results may vary depending on the TV you’re using and game you’re playing.
Gameplay in compatible PS5 games will feel smoother with VRR enabled, as scenes render seamlessly, and graphics look crisper – with frame pacing issues and screen tearing minimized.
You can also choose to apply VRR to PS5 games that are not officially compatible, which may improve video quality for some games. If enabling VRR results in any unexpected visual effects, you can turn it off at any time.
Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM)
Enjoy smooth gameplay with reduced lag on your PlayStation 5 console with Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM). With this feature, your PS5 console sends a signal to your TV when you’re playing, so you can get an even better gaming experience.
ALLM is only available on compatible TVs with HDMI 2.1 and might also be referred to as Game Mode in the TV’s settings. This feature won’t work when you’re using a Media App or watching TV, but your TV display should revert to its previous mode when you’re no longer gaming.
