Some TVs also added support via a firmware update, so it’s important to make sure your TV is up to date.

Should you have a compatible display, enabling 120Hz on PS5 is relatively straightforward. 

From the PS5’s home screen, head to ‘Settings’, which can be found in the top right-hand corner. Select ‘Screen and Video’ and go to ‘Video Output’. You can then select whether to enable or disable 120Hz output under ‘Enable 120Hz Output’.

You can double check your PS5 is capable of outputting 120Hz in the Video Output Information. Under ‘Information for the connected HDMI device’ you should see 120Hz showing up in the list of supported refresh rates.

For example, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 on PS5 supports 120Hz, but you need to navigate the game’s options then go to ‘Display Options’ and select ‘Performance’ instead of ‘Fidelity’ to enjoy 120fps support.
