Earlier yesterday, Microsoft announced three gaming monitors that are best aimed to couple with the Xbox X/S series gaming consoles.
According to Microsoft, these monitors are part of Microsoft’s Designed for Xbox Program. As of now, Microsoft has partnered with Acer, Asus, and Philips to bring gaming monitors for Xbox Series X/S that support HDMI 2.1. These three monitors are due to be released this year. They also feature AMD’s FreeSync PRO technology to reduce screen tearing.
The 28″ Acer’s Xbox Edition will be priced around $950 approximately and will be the budget-friendly one out of the three. It will feature 4K at a 120Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time. It also provides VESA DisplayHDR 400 and is equipped with Acer VisionCare 3.0.
The second on the list is the ASUS ROG Strix Xbox edition that offers a 43″ size. It features 4K UHD visuals and a 1ms moving picture response time (MPRT) along with a refresh rate of 120Hz. Apart from that, it offers a 90% DCI-P3 colour gamut and DisplayHDR 1000 certification for the optimal true colour experience. The pricing will vary for this one based on the region.
The last and best among the three is the Xbox Philips Momentum with a whopping screen size of 55″. It comes with an attached soundbar. Similar to the other two, the Xbox Philips Momentum features a 4K resolution with a 120Hz refresh rate. It also introduces a new, dedicated Xbox picture mode that will allow a gamer to enjoy high-contrast HDR with the VESA Certified DisplayHDR 1000. The Philips Momentum 559M1RYV 55″ will be priced at $1599.99.
Along with the monitors, Microsoft also introduced Ultra High-Speed HDMI that ensures optimum performance and is available in different lengths to fulfill all the requirements.
