Today Microsoft and the Designed for Xbox program introduced three new gaming monitors. All three monitors take full advantage of the power of the Xbox Series X and Series S consoles. The Series X|S consoles are powerful; however, gamers miss out on the targeted visual experience without the proper display device. For maximum fidelity and framerate experiences, your gaming display device must feature 4K, quality HDR, Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), and also run at 120Hz. While there are available gaming TVs and monitors with these features, more displays do not provide the next generation bells and whistles, which spells confusion for consumers.
Microsoft and the “Designed for Xbox” program have partnered with industry-leading display manufacturers to craft three monitors designed for the ultimate Xbox gaming experience when playing Xbox Series X, Series S, or PC. All three options provide a different gaming style. If you’re a console gamer that prefers a big TV monitor or a PC gamer that subscribes to Game Pass Ultimate looking for an upgraded monitor, you are in for a digital treat. All official Xbox gaming monitors also will sport a “Gaming Features for Xbox.” badge.
