In this blog we are going to introduce.

1. PS5 QHD Resolution compatibility

Some of you might already know that SONY PS5 does not fully support QHD resolution output at this moment. This means that if you use the conventional QHD monitor, you only can choose the FHD resolution output on the QHD screen, the image quality will be worse. Nowadays, more and more consumers are choosing monitors instead of TVs to play console and PC games. For these users, the lack of QHD resolution output support is a hindrance.

MSI has heard the voices of these consumers and provided a relatively good solution. We designed an exclusive Console Mode for the consoles, which can automatically accept 4K signals on QHD monitor, and support HDR simultaneously. This gives you the best gaming experiences and allows you to enjoy console games even with a QHD monitor.

To avoid consumers' concerns about whether their QHD displays support console HDR or not, we provided the following table for reference. We hope that this will increase the convenience of playing games.

2. PS5/Xbox FHD@120Hz compatibility

Another thing that makes everyone very curious is the latest feature of the 120FPS screen display.

Additional Explanations : 

  • Under HDMI 2.0 conditions: PS5 QHD resolution, Refresh Rate up to 60Hz.
  • Because the PS5/Xbox does not support 21:9 display, there will be black borders on the left and right of the screen, and the screen will not be scaled to maintain the best gaming experience for users.
  • The console mode will automatically detects, so there is no need to change any settings on the monitor.
  • If 120Hz cannot be achieved, please try turning off FreeSync and Raytracing in the settings.
