The PlayStation 5 is a potent gaming system with a sophisticated appearance that heralds the entry of the new generation of video gaming consoles.

PS5 Design

We are constantly in awe of PS5’s cutting-edge design and dynamic performance. The PS5 can run games more smoothly, load them more quickly, and enhance the entire gaming experience. Not to forget the new DualSense controller, which has customizable triggers and more discrete vibration feedback, which further intensifies the exposure. The PS5 also supports a resolution of either 1080p (HD) or 2160p (4K), but with a new September update. The PS5 can even operate at 1440p! And today, we’re going to tell you how you can turn on the 1440p resolution mode on PS5!

How do I turn on 1440p resolution on PS5?

First, you need to check whether your TV or monitor can support this mode. To do this, click on the “Settings” icon on your top right. Scroll down and select “Screen and Video“. Under the “Video Output” section, you’ll see an option reading “Test 1440p Output“. Just click on it and confirm by pressing X on “OK.”

After you press on “OK,” your screen will go blank or show “No signal” for about 15 seconds, and then you’ll see a prompt showing “60Hz SDR” on the screen and asking you if you can see the screen. Click on “Yes” if you can see the screen. After you click on Yes, you’ll see the same prompt again after 15 seconds, but with “60Hz HDR.” Again, click on “Yes” if you can see the screen. Finally, you’ll be back to the general settings, and the prompt will show you the resolutions that are supported on your monitor. If you can see both “60Hz SDR” and “60Hz HDR,” then your monitor can support the 1440p resolution.
Now, to enable the 1440p resolution, just go to “Resolution” under the same section and click on it. Select the “1440p” option and wait for a few seconds to let the PS5 switch to the selected resolution.

That’s all, folks! We hope that we can help you turn on the 1440p resolution on your PS5.
