Philips Momentum – World’s First Monitor Designed for Xbox

Monitors & Displays Holding B.V. (MMD), Philips’ monitor license partner, announces the Philips Momentum Designed for Xbox gaming monitors.

These “Designed for Xbox” console gaming monitors are built from the ground up to provide the ultimate experience for Xbox fans. The inclusion of the new HDMI 2.1 spec now enables next-gen console gaming with 4K resolution and faster 120Hz refresh rates. This results in ultra-clear and ultra-smooth gaming performance.

A New Frontier in Console Gaming

To deliver the optimal validated Xbox Series X performance, MMD has partnered with Xbox to tune these displays. Unlike televisions, the Philips Momentum are built with low latency and low lag as priorities. The series’ low input lag is a great advantage when playing twitch-sensitive video games. It allows the input to register on the screen faster.

Though developed for Xbox use, Playstation fans can also use the gaming monitor with a PS5.
