Sony adds 1440p support to the PS5 in the latest beta firmware. Today, Sony released a beta firmware update for the PlayStation 5 that includes two much-desired features: a 1440p output and game folders.
The 1440p output function is quite simple. Along with 720p, 1080p, and 2160p, the PlayStation 5 console can now also output in 2560×1440 resolution. Since the launch of the PlayStation 4 Pro, this feature has been demanded, but it has just recently become available on Sony gaming consoles.

Since the Xbox One X, Microsoft has had this choice. The games would function largely as predicted. While games rendering at 2160p will be downscaled to 1440p, those rendering at 1440p or lower will output natively. The existence of 1440p support is perhaps not all that shocking.
