PlayStation 5 now supports 1440p resolution. At the moment, it is only intended for players who have access to their beta program. While the console has supported 1080p and 4K output all along, 1440p support is still a highly requested feature by gamers who use monitors instead of TVs. It provides a middle ground between Full HD and 4K. Testers who received the latest PS5 beta software will now see the option to output a 1440p HDMI video as an additional visual setting when using the console with a compatible display.
They can take advantage of the full benefits of a 1440p display if the game supports the resolution. But if they’re playing a game that supports 4K resolution, the option downscales the visual samples to 1440p output for sharper images. Variable refresh rate (VRR) is only available for 1080p and 2160p. VRR gives the screen the ability to sync its refresh rate with the game for a smoother experience, and we don’t know why it doesn’t have 1440p output.
The latest beta software also provides users with a way to create game lists in their game library so that they can better organize all the titles they own. You can create up to 15 game lists each containing 100 games. Activities in progress will be displayed at the top of the Game Center when a game resumes, and you can now ask group members to share your screen so they can see how they’re playing. There are more cool new features too.
