Xbox One X will soon output at 1440p resolution when connected to 1440p monitors [Updated]

If a 1080p screen was connected to the console however, the device would supersample the visuals to 1080p resolution. 4K and 1080p displays aren't the only ones on the market though, and a lot of gamers prefer 1440p monitors. We haven't heard much about 1440p displays since the console was announced, so many figured that the Xbox One X would just display a 1080p supersampled image even though a 1440p display was connected. This would result in a less-than-optimal picture. Luckily, that isn't the case.

Today Kevin Gammill, the program manager for Microsoft's Xbox Platform Partner Group, said that the console would output at 1440p if a 1440p monitor was detected. This is great news for those hoping to use a 1440p monitor with their consoles, as they don't have to worry about the picture quality being upscaled from 1080p.

The Xbox One X launches on November 7, 2017 and is the most powerful console ever made. The device features 6 TFLOPS of processing power and 12 GB of GDDR5 RAM. In addition to that, the Xbox One X also contains a 4K Blu-ray player and offers a faster hard drive. For those looking to make the most of their console gaming experience — no matter if it's the desire for higher resolutions or more stable frame rates — if Microsoft nails its goals, it could be the device for you.

The Xbox One X is currently available to preorder for $499 or equivalent depending on your region. The console is launching simultaneously worldwide so chances are you'll be able to find it in your region soon.

Update 11/2/17: Microsoft confirms that support for 1440 resolution output is coming to the Xbox One X, but it is not yet implemented.
