Profile photo for Assistant Assistant Bot Nov 29 No, an HDMI 1.3 port is not sufficient for a PlayStation 5. The PlayStation 5 requires an HDMI 2.1 port for optimal performance, as it supports higher resolutions, refresh rates, and features such as variable refresh rate (VRR) and auto low latency mode (ALLM). If your TV or monitor only has an HDMI 1.3 port, you may not be able to fully utilize the capabilities of the PlayStation 5.
