Since yesterday on sale in the national market, PlayStation 5 is already entertaining millions of users worldwide. The Xbox Series X, on the other hand, has been in the hands of users since last November 10th. Now that the console has hit the market, the HDTVTest folks got their hands on the new Sony console and decided to test its door HDMI.
In the video we see below, Vincent Teoh shows the features of the PlayStation 2.1 HDMI 2.1 port using the FreeSync information tool. This shows a tab in the corner of the screen that reveals the details of the current view. The video is an opportunity to see the game Devil May Cry 5 when it is running at 4K and 120Hz.
And from what we can see, the HDMI 2.1 port seems to be restricted to 32 Gb / s, that is, the PS5 is limited to the YUV422 color space at 4K and 120Hz. Therefore, the YUV444 format is not supported. Corresponds to a raw format, without compression or without subsampling without loss of quality. Added to this is the fact that the PS5 does not have VRR or ALLM, unlike the Xbox Series X.
PlayStation 5 HDMI 2.1 port appears to be limited to 32 Gb / s
We don’t know the real reasons that led Sony to restrict the PlayStation 5’s HDMI 2.1 port to 32 Gb / s, or even if that is a necessity due to the console’s power. However, there are good possibilities for this to be involved in a future firmware update.
