How to Get 120 FPS on PS5

You must first select the Performance Option in your PlayStation 5 menu to activate 120 FPS mode. To enable performance mode, navigate to Settings > Saved Data & Game/App Settings > Game Presets > Performance Mode or Resolution Mode > choose Performance mode.

Note: This Performance option provides 120 frames per second in certain games. In order to take advantage of Performance mode, users must also have a display that supports at least a 120Hz refresh rate.

Before activating the Performance mode on the PlayStation 5 and taking advantage of 120 FPS in games, users need to be aware of two important things.

The most convenient approach to verify your TV or monitor display is through their official website. Simply searching the model of your monitor or TV on the internet will reveal the reference rate it supports.
