With the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition now supporting Variable Refresh Rate, you should be able to use this feature on your FI32U, FV43U or FO48U.
To find out how your enable VRR support with these computer monitors, you can check out this tutorial at Seeking Tech.
This article is based on the following HDMI 2.1 gaming monitors:
- GIGABYTE AORUS FI32U 32” 4K IPS Gaming Monitor
- GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43″ 4K VA Gaming Monitor
- GIGABYTE AORUS FO48U 48″ 4K OLED Gaming Monitor
1. The first step we recommend taking it to update your monitor to its latest firmware release if you haven’t done so already. A new update may improve your screen’s performance and/or fix bugs.
You can find the firmware files for these gaming monitors on the official GIGABYTE website with the following links:
- GIGABYTE AORUS FI32U Firmware Download Page
- GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U Firmware Download Page
- GIGABYTE AORUS FO48U Firmware Download Page
2. Of course, you should also keep the firmware of your PlayStation 5 or PlayStation 5 Digital Edition. A new software version of your console may help improve the VRR performance, fix glitches and/or add new adaptive sync features.
In order to manually update your game console, you can try taking the following steps:
- From the home screen menu, which is where you can select which game to launch and play, select the gear icon on the top right side.
- You should now be in Settings, where you need to select System.
- In the System menu, select System Software on the left side and then System Software Update and Settings on the right side.
- After getting to the System Software Update and Settings menu, select Update System Software.
- Finally, select Update Using the Internet.
3. With your console and monitor updated, connect your PlayStation 5 to the HDMI 2.1 port of your AORUS monitor.
Make sure you are using the HDMI 2.1 cable, which comes with your PS5, to make the connection.
4. Power on both your console and monitor.
5. Make sure that your monitor is displaying content coming from the PlayStation 5. If not, you need to switch over to the correct input source.
6. Using the control button located on your monitor, go to Settings.
7. Inside the Settings menu of your FI32U, FV43U or FO48U monitor, select Gaming.
8. Next, you need to select Adaptive Sync.
9. Make sure that Adaptive Sync is set to Enable.
10. On your PlayStation 5, head into the console’s Setting menu.
11. From the Settings menu of your PS5, you need to head over to Screen and Video.
12. After getting the Screen and Video menu, you need to first select Video Output on the left side.
12. On the right side of the same Screen and Video menu, you then need to set the VRR setting to Automatic.
