Does this monitor include any sort of AI upscaling like many TVs? If not, non-native 4K content will look as awful as on any other monitor in the market. Thus, not recommended for Xbox Series X. Coming from someone who has owned a 4K HDMI 2.1 monitor and owns a XSX. Just buy a 1440p 144Hz monitor and you will be much happier having spent a lot less money.Quote
