by on June 22, 2021

MMD has announced the release of the world’s first gaming monitor series, Designed for Xbox. The Philips Momentum Designed for Xbox console gaming monitor is designed to provide the ultimate experience for Xbox fans.  The inclusion of the new HDMI 2.1 spec enables next-gen console gaming with 4K resolution and a fast 120Hz refresh rate for ultra-clear and ultra-smooth gaming performance.  Philips monitors have partnered with the Xbox team to tune this “Designed for Xbox” display to deliver the optimal validated Xbox Series X performance from the moment you plug it in. The first model in the series will be available as a 55” (139.7 cm) model.

A more realistic gaming experience

Unlike televisions, Philips Momentum gaming monitors are purpose-built for consoles.  They are designed with low latency and low input lag as a priority to provide a much smoother, more realistic gaming experience. The series’ low input lag is a great advantage when playing twitch-sensitive video games, allowing your input to register on the screen faster. The flagship 55” Philips Momentum (559M1RYV) includes a specially designed soundbar from the engineers at Bowers & Wilkins, a British loudspeaker company globally renowned for their innovative designs and sound engineering, that completes the experience.Xbox monitor
