Xbox One X doesn't forget about 1440p gamers

In celebration of the November 7 release of Xbox One X, we're looking back at all of the unbelievable things Xbox has given us.

We already knew that games on Xbox One X would super sample down for 1080p TV owners. And, if you have a 1080p screen, then it supersample games, i.e. render them at a higher resolution before dropping back to 1080p.

Many would believe that the console would give a scaled-down image, but according to Gammill, in such a case, the console will output to native 1440p on a supported monitor.

The question Gammill was addressing was about 1440p displays. But there is another fairly common resolution used by monitors, and in particular gaming-focused monitors.

This week Amazon and Microsoft have announced the arrival of the new Xbox Amazon Prime Video application which is now available to download on to your Xbox One and will be fully supported when the new Xbox One X console launches on November 7th, 2017. It is a thoughtful move from Microsoft even though the One X is still very much positioned around 4K.

While we've only included a small selection, the list of 70 games to be enhanced for the Xbox One X on day one is still a great selection of titles to enjoy.

Please keep in mind that the Xbox One X Enhanced logo means the developer has done extra work to optimize for Xbox One X. Features vary by game, and these optimizations may include higher resolutions, faster framerates and/or improved textures. On the other hand, games that output at 1440p will be supersampled down to 1080p when the console is connected to a FHD display.
