With the PS5 and Xbox Series X having now nestled themselves into millions of homes around the world, players are finally getting to grips with all the exciting enhancements they can bring to our video games. From native 4K visuals and adaptive triggers, through to faster load times and haptic vibration, our games have never looked and felt so good to play. One of the other improvements is an improved framerate, and it’s actually possible to reach 120 FPS on Sony’s PS5. In this guide, we’ll run you through how to do just that.
PS5’s 120 FSP Performance Mode Explained
The first thing you’ll need to do is head into the Settings from your PS5’s home screen. This can be done by selecting the little cog in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
From here, you then want to go down to the ‘Saved Data and Game/ App Settings’ option.
Now you want to scroll down to ‘Game Presets’ on the sidebar, and you should now see a ‘Performance Mode or Resolution Mode’ option.
If you’re all about enabling 120 FPS on PS5, then you want to change this to Performance Mode.
Selecting this will cause games like Fortnite and Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War to run at 120 FPS. This is also the case for any game that has a 120 FPS option available in-game.
Keep in mind, however, that running games at 120 FSP on PS5 will have a negative effect on how your game looks visually. Your resolution might not be quite as sharp, dropping down from a native 4K to something possibly closer to a 1080p image.
If you’re after that silky smooth gameplay however, or don’t have a display to make the most of a native 4K image, then Performance Mode is definitely for you.
Once you’ve changed this setting, you’ll be all set to enjoy your games at a blistering 120 frames per second. Keep in mind that some titles, such as Black Ops: Cold War, do require players to disable options such as Ray Tracing in-game to enable this option, too.
And there you have it, you’re all set for playing games at 120 FPS on PS5. For all your other guide needs, be sure to search for Twinfinite, or check out more of our coverage on Sony’s latest system down below.
