Can't get 120hz on ps5

SDS

Monitor supports 240hz. 1080p and 2160p both stay at 60 hz. Performance mode is on. Any help? Yes I'm an idiot. Thanks.

SDS

Check if you got 120 hz mode on automatic.

SDS

Also don't use older HDMI cables.

You'd be shocked at the amount of Cat 5 cables I've replaced for people expecting high bandwidth. Cable swaps are a great diagnostic tool.

Worth a shot on the suggestion. Good luck with working through it.

Does your monitor support HDMI 2.0 or 2.1?

2.0 I believe.

SDS

It's possible that the monitor doesn't support the edid (Extended Display Identification Data) that the system is looking for. Example could be that the system is looking for a 120hz signal but the monitor although capable of much higher fps actually has 119.98hz and not 120hz. I'm not saying that's what's going on, but it is a possibility.

Did you make sure you are in performance mode and not resolution?

Yessir I'm on performance mode.

I think you need a monitor with hdmi 2.1 to take advantage of 120 hz on the ps5

Yeah then definitely make sure you are using the right cable. One that comes with PS5 works fine. Also makes sure you have it plugged into the correct HDMI port on your monitor. Some monitors have one 2.0 and one 1.4 for example. 1.4 will not work for 120hz.

Well its looking good. My FPS counter is showing it staying near 120 FPS now where as yesterday and before was hanging around 60 FPS. Now it is showing the same numbers as Series X. Si I guess they got it working right.
