Microsoft is looking to improve its fortunes in the video game market with the release of the Xbox One X on November 7, 2017. The console is destined to hit the market as the most powerful gaming device outside of the PC market, and the first console designed with true 4K in mind.
Here’s the thing, to take advantage of what 4K has to offer, one needs to have the right device to output picture coming from the Xbox One X in true 4K. Now, for many, they tend to purchase a television set for this task, but I’m more of a monitor type of person, especially since I do not own a TV, and may never.
The big question is, then, what are the best monitors for 4K gaming on the Xbox One X. Let’s dive in to see what we can find.
