    Xbox Series X does not allow HDR10:on with Screen resolutions below 4K


    Hi together,

    I am using an Asos ROG Strix Monitor XG279Q and this model supports 2560x1440@144hz native, but it seems it also supports 4K (3840x2160@60hz) as input resolution and the monitor downscale it to 1440.

    I received the following results:

    Xbox Resolution 1440p @ 120 Hz, allow 4K: yes --> result: maximum 60hz, HDR 10 works pretty well

    Xbox Resolution 1440p @ 120 Hz, allow 4K: no --> result: maximum 120hz, HDR 10 is not working

    Xbox Resolution 4K UHD @ 60 Hz --> result: maximum 60 Hz, HDR 10 works

    My first summary: Basically, I have luck, that my Asus monitor is capable of a 4K signal, although the panel scale it down to 1440p. But on the other hand side - with this setting - I can not use my monitor's very fast panel with 120 or 140hz when I want
    to use HDR, which of course looks way better than SDR.

    It seems that I have to decide between 120 Hz without HDR or 60 Hz with HDR. I would love to change the settings to 1440p @ 120 Hz with HDR on. I am really wondering why this is not possible/allowed.

    Would be very interested in your experiences. Perhaps there are some workarounds or Microsoft is considering this in one of the next updates?

    Cheers,

    Günther

    Hi,

    Unfortunately the Asus ROG Strix XG279Q is limited to 60Hz with HDR, it's a limitation of the monitor hardware. It will either be HDR on or off I'm afraid.

    A lot of gaming monitors have quite poor HDR, with low peak brightness. The "HDR" feature on a lot of monitors is a selling point that customers expect to see, rather than it being actually good. Also this monitor has a lot more input lag at 60Hz with HDR
    enabled.

    I would drop HDR and enjoy 1440P at 120Hz as a better option. Making sure you also enable Variable Refresh Rate.
    Hi,

    thank you for your fast reply and your explanation. Where did you find this info?

    As I just bought this monitor because I thought it is a very good choice for the new Series X and the RTX 3070 as well, I can still change it to another Monitor - do you have any better suggestion for 27" and the Series X?

    Thank you,

    Günther

    Wow - thank you - very detailed answer! Really thank you for your efforts.

    I will investigate a little deeper and as Display-Port is no option for the Series X it probably would make anyway sense to wait for the upcoming HDMI 2.1 Monitors.

    The information was found from the Rtings.com website
    here


    I must point out, the 60Hz limitation with HDR is via HDMI on this monitor. There is no limitation on a PC via Display Port. A very good monitor for a PC armed with an RTX 3070.

    Xbox consoles are very fussy when it comes to refresh rates over HDMI. Rather than use the preferred refresh rate that the monitor will tell the console it can use over E-EDID, Microsoft have chosen to only accept timings from the official VESA standard
    (Video Electronics Standards Association). If your chosen monitor doesn't have these timings, it won't be able to use all its features on an Xbox console.

    This means you can't just go with what the marketing says on box, you have to dig deeper and look at the monitor manual and review sites to see what refresh rates are supported and, more importantly, if they are VESA.

    Some monitor manuals actually state VESA and others put these other timings in a separate column called 'HDMI Video Timing'.

    The upcoming X-Box Series X

    Yes, I currently own an X Box One X

    When does the new X Box series X release this year?

    Will it have blue-ray?

    I have a 65 inch, 4K television.

    Will I see a difference in graphics with the new X Box on my 4K?
    Xbox Series X will release Holiday 2020, given Xbox's track record of releasing new consoles, they've usually been around November.

    It will have Blu-Ray.

    With the Xbox One X, it uses checkerboarding to get 4K resolution, though it's not true 4K, it's what allows the One X to get to 4K,

    With the Xbox Series X, it will use true native 4K, you may see that the Series X will look a little better at 4K than the One X at 4K.
