Dilemma We Have With 4K 120Hz Gaming

BenQ Australia
2021/09/02

New PS5 feature Game Presets offers the best way to ensure 120Hz in titles like COD Black Ops Cold War. Take a look at this unique approach to console settings 

BenQ MOBIUZ monitors including EX2510 and EX2710 give you the best gaming experience on PS5.

Unlike its peer the Xbox Series X, Sony’s PlayStation 5 doesn’t offer users the opportunity to set target frame rates via the operating system. As of this writing, you can only designate target resolutions, not frame rates. Xbox Series X allows for both.

So how do you “nudge” the PS5 towards giving you 120Hz in titles like Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War? Sony changed things up considerably with the PS5 UI compared to its PS4 predecessor. In what we think was an attempt at improving accessibility, Sony engineers created what they call Game Presets. These are somewhat hidden, and are not in the display section of the settings tab. Instead, you’ll find them at “Save Data and Game/App Settings”. 

What Do We Need To Enjoy 4K 120Hz?

The top three things we need to fully enjoy 4K at 120Hz:

  • The source of the device: if you have console PS5, Xbox/Xbox Series X, or a high performance gaming PC - you will need to have HDMI 2.1 output
  • Specific game titles which can support 4K 120Hz through HDMI 2.1 HDCP
  • Display device which can support 4K 120Hz and over with HDMI 2.1 input



There are several choices for gaming monitors & TVs which can support HDMI 2.1 displaying 4K 120Hz. However, there are limited game titles which can adapt to the new display device technology

Choosing the performance preset causes the PS5 to try and force the highest possible frame rate, typically at the cost of resolution and setting fidelity. This only applies to games that have a performance/quality selector to begin with. In any case, right now this is the closest you have on the PS5 operating system to frame rate selection, which is a shame. We hope Sony will include frame rate settings and 1440p support in future firmware updates. Until then, if you want 120Hz in PS5 games you should go to Game Presets and select performance mode. Resolution mode clearly means preferring resolution, so if you’re on a 4K display and like sticking as close as possible to that resolution, then surely the obvious is going with resolution mode.

Again, this only works with games that have toggles for these settings and that support the game preset feature. If you want our honest assessment, we’d leave everything on default for the most consistent experience.

With regards to 120Hz, we discovered that even if the PS5 is set to 2160p or 4K in the performance setting, it will deliver a 120Hz frame rate at an actual resolution of 1080p within Black Ops Cold War. Since this game does have an internal 60Hz/120Hz toggle in its own settings menu, it appears that the Game Presets function works well here, though at the cost of resolution. Whether that’s a trade off you want to make is entirely up to you, and we are aware that 4K 120Hz was a much advertised and anticipated aspect of the new generation. But for now and until developers learn to make better use of the newer hardware, this is not a bad workaround for PS5 users. It does offer silky-smooth 120fps gameplay, and 1080p still looks just fine. But definitely too early to adopt expensive 4K 120hz display device because of the lack of game titles (Sep, 2021). In terms of those reasons, still, BenQ is recommending you to choose your display base on your favorite game titles and style of your playing.

We’ll keep looking for new updates to the PS5 and evaluate them as we move forward. 

What is the New Trend in Gaming Behaviours?

TVs used to be the only device we could enjoy and play consoles with. As technology advances over time, companies were creating bigger screens at cheaper cost, the saying "bigger is better" started to follow! We have thoroughly enjoyed the benefits of big screen displays over the years. However, many gamers these days now have their own setup in their own bedroom, "study" room or entertainment room with at least one monitor used as display. In addition, one of the concerns of console gaming on TV is the input lag.
