Xbox Series X|S official monitors announced by Microsoft

Microsoft has revealed three new monitors that have been designed to take full advantage of the power of the Xbox Series X|S 2.1 HDMI display. Microsoft has not manufactured these designs themselves but instead collaborated with the likes of Phillips, ASUS, and Acer. Each company has created a different sized monitor, and there will be many more made and released. Those that have been created for the Xbox Series X|S in mind will have a “Gaming Features for Xbox” sticker or badge on it. The three displays are as follows.

Philips Momentum 559M1RYV 55”

The Philips Momentum supports 4K resolution at 120Hz powered by AMD FreeSync Premium Pro technology to reduce screen tearing. It also introduces a new, dedicated Xbox picture mode. Players can enjoy high-contrast HDR with the VESA Certified DisplayHDR 1000, offering local-dimming and peak luminance more than 3x that of mid-grade displays on the market. The monitor will retail at $1599.99.

ASUS Strix Xbox Edition Gaming Monitor XG43UQ 43”

Co-developed with the Designed for Xbox Team, ASUS has created an Xbox mode for best color, contrast, and hue settings when paired with Xbox Series X|S. This monitor also features AMD FreeSync Premium Pro technology putting an end to choppy gameplay and replacing it with supersmooth native 4K at 120Hz gaming via HDMI 2.1. Plus, it offers a 90% DCI-P3 color gamut and DisplayHDR 1000 certification ensuring quality visuals and true-to-life colors. This display will release in October 2021, but a price is yet to be confirmed.

Acer Xbox Edition Gaming Monitor XV282K KV 28”

The 28” Acer Xbox Edition Gaming Monitor supports 4K at 120Hz and HDMI 2.1, pushing next- generation gameplay to its limits on Xbox Series X|S. It has a low 1ms response time and ensures high color accuracy while the VESA DisplayHDR 400 provides great contrasts between dark and light shades.

Like other monitors entering the program, this display comes AMD FreeSync Premium Pro ready. Equipped with Acer VisionCare 3.0, the Acer Xbox Edition Gaming Monitor is among the first monitors to be TUV/Eyesafe certified, reducing strain on gamers’ eyes as they dive into their gaming adventures. For those interested in PC gaming or a more robust technical setup, this model has a built-in KVM switch, enabling easy switching between multiple PCs without having to change the monitor, keyboard, and mouse setup. The 28” Acer Xbox Edition Gaming Monitor XV282K KV will be $949.99 USD and available this Fall.

Microsoft has confirmed it will be working with more hardware developers to create items that will be truly compatible with the Xbox Series X|S, so that owners of these consoles can get the most out of them.
