The new consoles from Sony and Microsoft PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are very similar. However, there are some differences between them. In terms of visual display options, many have pointed out the absence of the variable refresh rate (VRR), which even past-generation Microsoft consoles (Xbox One S and Xbox One X) have. .
