In the market for a new gaming monitor that supports 120fps (frames-per-second) and works on the latest next-gen console, the PS5? Wel,l this piece of helpful info for compatible PS5 monitors might be what you’re looking for, as it compiles a list of currently supported monitors for Sony’s next-gen console.
Reddit user Frosting_Mundane has collaborated (after first list deleted) a list of currently confirmed monitors that support 120FPS/HZ mode in supported games. Down below you’ll find the current full list (will be updated over time) of supported monitors. As a PSA, for those wondering the monitor DOES NOT need HDMI 2.1 support to be able to run titles at 120FPS. If your monitor does not have 2.1 HDMI support but can output 120fps and up, then the system should still be able to accept performance mode, though only at 1080P. You may also have to turn off freesync or adaptive sync via monitor settings. If you want to run games at native/dynamic 4K with 120fps enabled, then you will need to have a monitor with 2.1 HDMI support.
Also, if you are someone who is looking at this list because you own a Xbox Series X or S, these monitors should work with the console though require verification. Since the system has an option for force 120fps over HDMI, most monitors should work regardless. The PS5 in it’s current state seems to be having some compatibility issues with certain monitors.
Current list of games on PS5 that support 120fps May 2021
- Borderlands 3 – Supports 120 FPS in ‘Performance Mode’
- Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War (our analysis of 120fps mode) – Supports 120 FPS at 1080p – Note, the option may be grayed out even after enabling performance mode. As long as it says “enabled” you will be fine. Unlike Destiny, which can be forced on or off, Cold War automatically toggles the option.
- Destiny 2 – Supports 120FPS at 1080p in Crucible matches
- Devil May Cry V: Special Edition – Supports 120FPS at 1080p
- Dirt 5 – Supports 120 FPS at 1080p
- Fortnite – Supports 120fps with native PS5 port
- Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom – Supports 120fps at native 4K with HDMI 2.1 support
- Nioh Collection – Both Nioh 1, Nioh 2 and DLC for both games supports 120 FPS at 1080p
- Rainbow Six Siege – Supports 120 FPS at 1080p, 4K with HDMI 2.1 support
- Rogue Company Supports 120FPS at a dynamic 4K resolution (HDMI 2.1 support, 1080P otherwise) with the native PS5 port
- WRC 9 – Supports 120 FPS in ‘Performance Mode’
What to do prior to testing out 120fps
Per Reddit user, tropicalthunder922, if you are having troubles with getting 120fps to work with one of the monitors on this list, be sure that the following settings are enabled/disabled and the game you are playing supports said fps.
- Did you put your PS5 into performance mode?
- Did you use the HDMI cable, that came with the PS5?
- Did you start a game, that supports 120hz, like Fortnite or COD Black Ops (option grayed out but says enabled)?
- Did you try disable/enable Freesync/Adaptive Sync

This list will be updated overtime as more monitors are tested. List last updated on 05/17/2021.
NOTE: This list is compiled from users who have tested and verified the monitors below. Unfortunately we cannot confirm whether they work or not ourselves as the list is quiet large and we simply do not have the resources to do so. If there is a monitor you are interested here, PLEASE DO ADDITIONAL RESEARCH BEFORE BUYING.
There also seems to be an issue with some monitors supporting 144hz due to how the PS5 works, sometimes the handshake between the monitor and console will fail, resulting in just 60fps support. Sony will need to release a console update in order to force 120fps like the Series X and S does.
UPDATE: With the latest PS5 update (April 14) now adding forced 120FPS, this list should be expanded on largely as displays that had issues previously are now being confirmed as working. Please stay-tuned as we compile a new list.
List last updated on 5/17/2021 with confirmation links provided.
Note, all monitors on this list have been reported as working by users. We have added an additional link for confirmation to some monitors, but if it is on the list it has been verified by other users prior.
