PS5 consoles just got the long-awaited support of 1440p for all users in today’s new patch. Here’s how to take advantage of the feature.

If you don’t have a 4K display but still want a major boost to your PS5’s visual performance, 1440p is the way to go. The resolution is known for being 4 times more detailed than regular HD, and is therefore a massive upgrade for those looking for better visuals.

If you’ve got a 1440p-compatible monitor or TV, you’ll finally be able to take full advantage of the PS5 as of today. Sony’s powerful console can now support native 1440p output, and games with a higher native resolution such as 4K should offer improved anti-aliasing through supersampling down to a 1440p output.

Long story short, this addition will have your PS5 looking better than ever, unless you’re already running 2160p on a 4K monitor.

How to Test if Your Monitor Supports 1440p

  • Boot up your PS5 to its home screen.
  • Nvigate to the Settings gear at the top right of the screen.
  • Select Screen and Video.
  • Then choose Video Output.
  • Under the Resolution and Frequency heading, select Test 1440p Output.
  • Your device will reveal whether or not the connected monitor can support 1440p.
