PS5 Just Got a New Feature That Xbox Player Have Had for Years and this feature is really great. The PS5’s laundry list is a great feature that just got a little bit longer, thanks to the addition of auto low-latency mode support.
PS5 Just Got a New Feature That Xbox Player Have Had for Years
Sony has recently announced the new PS5 feature found on the official PlayStation Support page. These announcement details are exactly what the latest system update requires, with auto low-latency support (or ALLM) definitely in the limelight.
At the moment, this update is now available at the moment, and it would be downloaded once you turn on your PS5. Have it at the back of your mind that this update would occupy up to about 1GB of storage space found on your console’s SSD.
ALLM on PS5
In other, for you to make use of the ALLM on your PS5, you would need a TV that supports the feature and an HDMI 2.1 cable. Then, head over to the PS5’s settings menu, followed by the screen and video, video output, and finally ALLM.
If you make the switch to the ALLM settings to Automatic, then your TV would be automatically switched to its auto low-latency mode when you have loaded up a game.
Why ALLM is a Big Deal?
Auto low-latency mode is potentially game-changing for all PS5 players. Also, it is supported by many of the best 4K TVs that you can purchase, and can drastically reduce input lag by disabling any display enhancing settings that your TV might have.
This feature is great for multiplayer games, especially, where every split-second counts. But it is a wonderful thing for any type of game that relies on slick responsive controls.
Sony has been on a roll with the PS5 updates this year. About some months back, the tech giant decided to finally roll out variable refresh rate support (or VRR). This would allow the PS5 to maintain a much smoother framerate while boosting resolution, leading to an even crisper image and more responsive gameplay.
Both the ALLM and the VRR has been made available on the Xbox Series X|S consoles ever since the launch, but PS5 players were sadly left out in the dark for quite a while. Thankfully, the two features are now available to use on Sony’s flagship console, as long as you’ve got a TV that supports them.
