If you’ve been able to get a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X before the holidays, you’ll know that these systems can deliver 120 frames per second at 1080p. This means you can enjoy a smooth gaming experience with more than the usual 30 or 60 SPF that the previous generation had to offer. This function is called MSI, the MSI monitoring console mode.
MSI really works with a population of console gamers. Last time they implemented MSI’s QHD display optimization for the PS5. This time they gave a step-by-step guide for activating the 120FPS (1080p). MSI has received a number of requests to support 120 SPFs with powerful monitors.
On your PS5, this is what you should do.
1. Search for saved data and setup/additional settings under Settings.
2. Select a game mode from the game presets.
3. Restart the game and your game will run at the highest refresh rate.
You can also watch the MSI instructional video below.
You can enable the built-in frame rate detection to see whether you are working at 60 or 120 frames per second.
In the same way, when you’re in Team Xbox, here are the steps.
1. In the settings, search for General > TV and Display Options.
2. Change the display to 120 Hz in the TV and screen settings.
You can find your MSI monitor model below to see if it supports 120Hz FHD.

Try it yourself. But beware, once you start playing at 120 Hz or higher, 60 FPS will seem very different.
Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
