New Features Rolling out in the Update
Now let’s have a look at New features coming out in the new Update.
1440p HDMI Video Output
The new PS5 beta introduces support for 1440p HDMI video output. This will enable users to select an additional visual setting on their PC monitors or TVs.
The 1440p support is essential for PC players, who have been requesting to introduce this feature since the release of the Console. Its competitor Xbox Series X has already supported this feature since its launch.
If the game you’re playing has the support of 1440p output then you can experience the 1440p output on your monitor.
If you’re playing a game that has a higher native resolution like 4k, then you may benefit from enhanced anti-aliasing through supersampling down to 1440p output, said the announcement.
You can check whether your HDMI device is compatible with this feature, within the system settings select “Test 1440p Output” under the “Screen and Video” Option.
Now you can organize your Games in your Game Library by creating Game lists. With the feature coming in the beta, the user will be able to sort their games in a list or folder.
Users will be able to create up to 15 Game lists and each Game list may contain up to 100 games. All the games in your Game library can be added to the Game list including disc, digital, and streaming titles.
To create a Game list go to “Your Collection” in the Game Library and under Your Collection select [Create Game list].
