The 4K monitors are currently the top spec that gamers could lay their hands on. While some of the gamers might prefer a 4K monitor the options are pretty scarce and in the meanwhile, the 1080p monitor is still selling strong.
Ever since Microsoft announced the Xbox One a lot of gamers have started to prefer the 1440p monitors. Once again we don’t really have a good range of 1440p monitors on the offering.
In the meanwhile, someone speculated that the Xbox One X just displayed a supersampled a 1080p image on a 1440p monitor.
Most of the gamers presumed that the Xbox One X would simply supersample the 1080p image and run it through a 1440p display. If this is true then the display would not be as great as expected. Thankfully that’s not what happened.
The Program Manager for Microsoft Xbox Platform Partner cleared the air and said that the console would indeed output at 1440p resolution when connected to a 1440p monitor.
So, if you were looking out to use a 1440p monitor with Xbox One fret not. Microsoft has promised that the upscaling from 1080p won’t happen.
What about a 1440p monitor hooked up on the X. Does the output still supersample to 1080p?

Upscaling usually ends up converting low-resolution content to a higher definition in order to match the TV/Monitor resolution.
The upscaling works by interpolation and also duplicates the pixel for a better reproduction. However, the visible downside of upscaling is the issue it has while rendering fast moving objects.
Microsoft had announced the Xbox One X earlier this year and the same will be launched on November 7th. The console offers 6 TFLOPS of computing prowess and features a 12GB GDDR5 RAM.
That apart the Xbox One X also comes with a 4K Blu-Ray player and an updated hard drive. At the moment the Xbox One X is considered as the best bet when it comes to gaming consoles and we only hope that Microsoft offers all that it has promised.
The Xbox One X is already up for preorder at $499 and the console will be available worldwide after the November 7 launch. Once the launch happens, check out your regional Microsoft site and to see if the Xbox One X is available.
