Sony has announced the start of testing of a beta version of the PlayStation 5 software update that implements support for 1440p resolution. The corresponding message was released in the official developer blog.
“Since the launch of PS5, we’ve listened to your feedback and worked every day to bring you more of the features the community has been asking for. Today we released a new PS5 system software beta that includes support for 1440p resolution, playlists and additional updates that will improve your gaming experience and make it easier to connect with friends on PS5.”say the developers.
It should be noted that the Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) feature, which improves the visual performance of games and reduces or eliminates artifacts such as frame rate drops, does not work at 1440p. The post states that the PS5’s VRR feature only works when using a 1080p or 4K resolution.
Along with support for 1440p resolution, users can create lists of games in the library, which makes sorting games more convenient. A total of up to 15 lists can be created, each containing up to 100 games. In addition, it became possible to compare 3D audio and stereo audio on the same screen to choose a more suitable option.
Added a feature to make it easier to return to uncompleted activities. As part of the expansion of social features, the ability to send a screen-sharing request to allow users to see gameplay of other members of the group has been added.
As of this writing, the PS5 software update beta is available to a limited number of users around the world. It will be open to the public later this year.
