Microsoft reveals whether Xbox One X will support 1440p displays

We’ve known that the Xbox One X outputs at native 4K on a 4K TV and supersamples titles when it’s connected to a Full HD screen for a while, but we’ve been in the dark about how it performs when it’s paired with a 1440p monitor.

Now, however, Xbox Group Program Manager Kevin Gammill has revealed that the next-generation console outputs native 1440p on supported monitors, putting an end to concerns from die-hard gamers that it would, heaven forbid, upscale the picture from Full HD.

Scheduled to hit the shelves in the United Kingdom on November 7, the Xbox One X – formerly known as Project Scorpio – is the successor to the immensely popular Xbox One S. As you’d expect, it’s a lot more powerful than its predecessor and comes equipped with a number of new bells and whistles.

One of our biggest qualms with the Xbox One S is that it’s prone to overheating when rested horizontally. The folks over at Microsoft attempted to address that with the Xbox One X by introducing a new cooling and power delivery system, which should keep the temperature down and efficiency up.

We can’t yet comment on how effective the new method is, or whether it’s quieter, but we’ll be sure to touch on that in our comprehensive review – so be sure to keep your browser pointed to Trusted Reviews to be one of the first to read it when it goes live.
