Best Gaming Monitor for PS5 and Xbox Series X in 2022

Although gaming monitors are typically designed for PC gaming, they are also worth considering for consoles. In fact, a high-end monitor with dedicated performance-focused gaming features may be an even better choice than the average 4K TV. If you don’t mind a smaller screen and/or prefer to game at your desk while seated in a comfortable gaming chair, you may end up saving a good chunk of money by opting for a monitor with gaming capabilities. We’ve rounded up these below are the best gaming monitors for PS5 and Xbox Series X. You’ll notice we’ve also slipped an OLED TV in here, simply because it offers the best picture of all the screens on this list and could double as a gaming monitor (it also has HDMI 2.1). After checking out our picks, you can read some tips below on what to look for in a gaming monitor for PS5 or Xbox Series X.

What is HDMI 2.1?

HDMI 2.1 is the latest HDMI specification capable of transmitting 48 Gbps of information, which enables 4K resolution, 120 Hz refresh rate and HDR. HDMI 2.1 also offers two benefits specifically for gaming. Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) and Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) deliver a smooth, tear-free picture and virtually no lag between your inputs and the action. The PS5 and Xbox Series X both feature HDMI 2.1 and can display gameplay at 4K and 120Hz – the PS5, however, does not currently support any adaptive sync, including VRR, FreeSync and G-Sync.
