However, the most characteristic thing about this monitor is that, despite being part of a family of devices intended for use on consoles, there is still no device capable of supporting games above 60 frames per second.
That is why, together with a presentation without an availability date, it makes us think that we are facing the first ultrawide gaming monitor designed for the next generation of PS5 and Xbox Series X, confirming in turn the compatibility of these new consoles with the ultra-wide format.
And it is undoubtedly a great news, since even on PC, There are still many games that do not have support for this type of monitors. which seems to be gaining more prominence compared to the multiple monitor configurations.
However, at the moment there is no confirmation from any console developers or monitors, so we have no choice but to wait until the dates close to Christmas, and the arrival of these new systems.
What is clear is that the high resolutions and frame rates of PS5 and Xbox Series X will make 144 Hz screens the new standard for this next generation.
