“Designed for Xbox” screens at Philips, Asus and Acer

The latter was “validBy Microsoft, and will launch this summer at $ 1,599.
The same goes for Asus, with a 43 ″ screen here, again 4K @ 120 fps and AMD FreeSync Pro compatible, not to mention the precious HDR and an Xbox mode. The latter will be launched in October, priced at $ 1,399. Finally, Microsoft has also teamed up with Acer for a 28 ″ Xbox Edition Gaming Monitor.

Microsoft has already promised to offer other screens “Designed for Xbox” In the coming months.
