Xbox One X Will Support 1440P Displays Native

Xbox One X Will Support 1440P Displays Native

If, for instance, you have a 1440p monitor that you'd like to play an Xbox One X on, you're invited to come along for the ride. Xbox group program manager, Kevin Gammill, revealed one such capability on Wednesday. And, if you have a 1080p screen, then it supersample games, i.e. render them at a higher resolution before dropping back to 1080p.

That's if the Xbox One X is hooked up to a 1440p monitor. He confirmed native support through his Twitter account.

Going through a number of gaming options in monitors and particularly those who are featuring Nvidia G-Sync or AMD FreeSync, you can be able to see that a number of them use 1440p resolution. It is a thoughtful move from Microsoft even though the One X is still very much positioned around 4K. But he had noted earlier in the thread that games that output natively at 1440p will be up-scaled ("up-rezzed") to 2160p on a 4K/UHD display and super-sampled to 1080p on a Full HD/1080p set.

While we've only included a small selection, the list of 70 games to be enhanced for the Xbox One X on day one is still a great selection of titles to enjoy.

Last but not least, be aware that some Xbox One X Enhanced support both HDR and 4K graphics: this small list includes Assassin's Creed Origins, Forza Motorsport 7, Disneyland Adventures, FIFA 18, Madden NFL 18, Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, Gears of War 4, Rise of the Tomb Raider and World of Tanks. The console packs 6 TFLOPS of processing power, 12 GB of GDDR5 RAM, a 4K Blu-ray player and a faster hard drive.

With the Xbox One X on the horizon, a lot of the focus has understandably been on 4K.
