Dynamic Screen and Themes in PS5

The Dynamic screen that the PlayStation5 has is here to stay but there will be the option for you to set up themes as well. This is something that the gamers have long been demanding for, a whole year, to be precise.

Variable Refresh Rate

Moreover. the software update in PlayStation5 will have better VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) which ultimately smoothens the game a lot. If you have no idea what VRR is, let me tell you.

Variable Refresh Rate is when the screen has a series of pictures each second. Fewer images per second or fewer refreshes of the screen to fetch newer images may cause glitches in the screen. Increasing the number of images in a frame and then increasing the VRR ultimately gives you a better and smoother experience with the games.

1440p and HDR

The screens and game all in all were impressive from the beginning, but could they be better? Yes, and they are doing it now. The HDR will allow you to see the screen and other objects better even in bright light as the game itself contains. Improving visual and other screen components is going to be the biggest part of this update.

This is going to be super important in this update as this feature has a whole other fan base. We don’t have enough clue on this part of the update but from what it looks like, the new update on PS5 will have an upper hand over all the other consoles.
