Three new Xbox enhancing monitors are coming soon

As of now, only three monitors have been confirmed to possess these new specifications. One of them is the 55-inch Phillips Momentum display. The monitor packs a 4K resolution at 120Hz with AMD FreeSync Premium Pro, a dedicated Xbox picture mode, and DisplayHDR 1000 support. Given the fact that Microsoft has worked closely with Phillips to ensure an immersive gaming experience, it makes the $1,599.99 price tag somewhat reasonable.

Alternatively, players can opt for the smaller but more affordable Asus Strix Xbox Edition Gaming Monitor XG43UQ. This monitor boasts a 43-inch 4K display. It is available for the price of $1400. Last but certainly not least is the Acer Xbox Edition Gaming Monitor XV282K KV. This is the smallest and most affordable of the three coming in at 28 inches and under $1000.

Monitors are usually preferred by avid gamers due to the better latency and graphics that they offer. The fact that Microsoft has partnered with these companies in order to provide an enhanced gaming experience only increases its effectiveness.

The recent Xbox and Bethesda Gaming Showcase gave players much to look forward to this summer. Xbox exclusive Halo Infinite was one of the highly anticipated games at the event.
