Additional Explanation: 

  • Under HDMI 2.0 conditions: PS5 QHD resolution, Refresh Rate up to 60Hz.
  • Because the PS5/Xbox does not support a 21:9 display, there will be black borders on the left and right of the screen, and the screen will not scaled to maintain the best gaming experience for users.
  • The console mode will automatically detect, so there is no need to change any settings on the monitor
