How to enable GIGABYTE M28U and M32U VRR support for PS5

Variable Refresh Rate support was recently added to the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition. As a result, you will be able to play most games on your Sony gaming console without having to worry about any stuttering or screen tearing due to unstable frame rates.

Both the GIGABYTE M28U Gaming Monitor and GIGABYTE M32U Gaming Monitors have been confirmed to be compatible with the VRR feature of the PS5.

To see how you can enable Variable Refresh Rate, when playing games on your console, for the M28U and M32U, you can take a look at this tutorial at Seeking Tech.

1. Before doing anything else, we recommend that you update your M28U or M32U to the latest firmware. New updates may improve the Variable Refresh Rate support of your gaming monitor.

2. You should also keep your PS5 or PS5 Digital Edition updated to the newest firmware as well.

VRR support for the game console was added in a recent firmware update. Not to mention that subsequent updates may have improved the compatibility and/or performance of this feature on the PlayStation 5 as well.

3. If you haven’t one so already, use a HDMI 2.1 cable to connect your game console to the M28U or M32U monitor.

You can use the HDMI cable that came with your PlayStation 5 or PlayStation 5 Digital Edition box as it should be 2.1.

4. After properly connecting your PS5 to the computer monitor, turn on both devices.

5. Make sure that the monitor is displaying the input that is connected to your game console.

6. On your PlayStation 5, make sure that you are in the home screen. This is the main system menu where you can open games and media apps.

7. Next, you need to get to the Settings menu from the home screen. You can do so by selecting the gear cog icon, which you can find on the top right side of the screen.

8. Once you are inside the Settings menu, you need to head into Screen and Video.

9. After getting into the Screen and Video sub-menu, the first step you need to take is to select Video Output on the left column.

10. On the right side inside the same Screen and Video sub-menu, you then need to select VRR.

11. In the pop-up menu, make sure that VRR is set to Automatic. This will enable Variable Refresh Rate for games that natively support this feature.

12. Underneath the VRR setting in the Screen and Video sub-menu, you can also turn on the “Apply to Unsupported Games” setting to use Variable Refresh Rate for games that don’t support this feature.

13. To use Variable Refresh Rate for games that have a frame rate that is beyond 60 frames per second (such as Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Ratchet and Clank: A Rift Apart), make sure that you have 120 Hz enabled on your PlayStation 5 or PlayStation 5 Digital Edition.
