    I only get 60hz on cod cod war. 
    I have been trying to get the 120hz that you can do for cod cold war. 
    For some reason it won't work with this monitor.

    What Res mode is it working in, 1080 or 4k? I think it's only got hdmi 2.0 which would need it to be In 1080 mod

    I have tried to set the ps5 to both res that it uses, 4k and 1080p. PS released a fw update too add on more monitor support, from what I understand. 
    I found a Acer list that has all the models that will support 120hz, and the XB32 is not on it??

    The XB27 is but not the 32 version??? Kinda of dumb if you ask me, same specs, just a bigger screen.

    The post with the screenshot in? I was wondering if that's just an age thing as I don't think it's been updated since it was first posted. It should play if you force it to 1080 and performance mode I would have though hmm 🤔

    I wonder if it's something to do with the edids which are embedded , if you run a edid viwer when the monitor is connected to a windows pc, it may point us in the right direction 

    The edid is some meta info which states what the monitor can do, it could be that there isn't a line enabling 120fps at 1080. 

    If this is the case, it may be possible to trick the ps5 into outputting the video mode by using a emulator dongle

    This pic is from the manual. I guess a $800 dollar monitor can not do 120hz over HDMI. Thats what I am getting from the manual?????
    This is ridiculous IMHO!!! 

    I tried an ASUS monitor yesterday, ASUS VG27AQ, $400 dollar monitor. That had no issues running cod cold war at 120hz on the ps5. I would have kept it but have a 32 inch model and going back to a 27 inch, looked like I had a 19 inch monitor on my desk, lol.

    Looks like that's the problem then :( thank you for checking, you could try manually setting the frame rate above 75 in windows, if it works it's not that it's not supported , just that it's not reported. 

    If it works you can get little edid emulator dongles in Amazon for a few quid which force the ps5 into 120fps mode

    Just got off the phone with the, special Predator customer support number they give you. I asked the CSA, he had no clue what I was talking about???

    please report back if it works :D can then bookmark the tread and use it as a refernce :) , and that doesnt supprise me to be honest! I think its because the EDID's come from a standard list, where there use to not be high framerates. PC's ignore the EDID and having a broke / non standard EDID can make things liek blue ray players just give up and not display so i guess thats why acer did it :(

    For sure I will report back. Do you think Acer might release a fw update for these monitors?
