I experience serious flickering on my Odyssey G7 "28 when I play games that support 40hz mode with VRR on my PS5. I have seen people that own Odyssey G7 "28 are having the same issue as well. Is there any fix for the issue?

Regards

The latest Playstation 5 beta update fixed the VRR flickering when using Fidelity mode. I'm testing the beta and I can gladly conform that it is fixed.

Hi @Compoza 

It's not a problem we have heard about before, but it sounds like VRR PS5 range is between 48Hz – 120Hz, so you will not benefit VRR on games running 40Hz. In contrary you can get judder instead. 

I will attach some info and links I found - I hope you find them helpful:

“The VRR range on PS5 is also capped to 48Hz - 120Hz, which isn't as good as what's available on the LG OLED CX, which has a superior VRR range of 20 - 120Hz. This means that if a PS5 game drops lower than 48fps when playing at 60Hz game, it may exhibit judder as it falls out of the VRR range.”

Don't know how accurate this list is, but it looks like games need to support, or rather be optimized for VRR as well.
