Sony has started distributing version 5.5 of the software update for the PlayStation 5. After there is no information about changes in updates for versions 5.02 and 5.1, the changelog this time contains a modification of the automatic low latency mode (ALLM) for the game console.

New setting for ALLM

The roughly 980MB firmware update to version 22.01-05.500.00.08 for the PlayStation 5 mentions not only the improved system performance, which Sony lists with each update, but also improvements to ALLM, which thanks to the console’s HDMI 2.1 port when connected to the appropriate TV It is possible to use it.

Users now have the option to set ALLM to Automatic or Off in Settings. With Automatic, ALLM is always activated when playing games, while if ALLM is off, it is only activated when outputting with VRR (Variable Refresh Rate). On the other hand, when I run a media app, the PS5 console does not send an ALLM signal.

Version: 22.01-05.50.00
  • If you are using a TV that supports ALLM (Automatic Low Latency Mode), you can adjust the ALLM settings under Settings > Display and Video > Video Output > ALLM.
  • when you automatically If you select this, the TV will automatically switch to low latency mode while gaming.
  • when you out of place ALLM is only enabled when a Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) video is output.
  • This system software update improves system performance.

ALLM not mandatory with HDMI 2.1

ALLM is an HDMI feature that makes the TV switch to lower latency mode for a more responsive experience, especially in gaming. However, an HDMI 2.1 connection does not necessarily mean that the TV masters ALLM either. Gaming features such as Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM), Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), and Fast Frame Transfer (QFT) are also optional with HDMI 2.1, which makes confusion about the ideal standard, because the maximum bandwidth can also be selected differently so that not all An HDMI 2.1 device is full 48 Gb/s and therefore does not have to support every possible frame rate with HDMI 2.1 at full resolution.
