The update for the PlayStation 5 has been available for a few days, which the Sony console finally also makes VRR-capable. If you activate this “variable refresh rate” – and also has a display, which also supports VRR – the refreshment sequence of your console can synchronize with the EURORE screen, which ensures an overall quieter and less image error such as tearing.
But apparently VRR also has another beautiful side effect. Because, like the first tech analysts, including those of YouTuber El Analista de Bits, VRR on the PS5 also ensures a sometimes very clear frame rate boost in some games.
Examples of titles with frame rate boost by VRR

Remarkable numbers: Especially with Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and Devil May Cry 5, the activation of VRR sometimes almost ensures that the frame rate doubles. However, reference should be made here that these are top values and the average FPS values level off somewhat. The boost is of course still a clearly noticeable improvement.
VRR support so far only for a handful of games
Anyone who may already be happy to throw up their older favorites again thanks to the VRR update and enjoy it with optimized FPS numbers will be warned. Because so far only a few titles with VRR have been compatible.

In the menu it can be set that VRR should be activated even in the case of unsupported titles, but according to Sony, unsightly graphic errors can occur. In the future, however, VRR support will also be expected that new games will also offer VRR support from the start.
