Microsoft is taking another step towards maximum compatibility for its Xbox consoles. The company has just announced the possibility of using Xbox One X and Xbox One S with FreeSync technology on AMD PC screens, as well as the consoles’ TV compatibility with Auto Low Latency Mode.
Xbox One X and Xbox One S FreeSync
Last month, Microsoft had already announced that it will soon support the 1440p resolution used on PC monitors for its last two available Xbox consoles.
This time, it’s the AMD FreeSync screens that will be compatible with the new Xbox One X and Xbox One S update.
This is good news for players because the future Xbox One X and Xbox One S updates will allow the monitors’ refresh rates to display a very smooth image, without tearing, for example.
In this regard, some 2018 TV with the QLED technologies that Samsung has announced during the CES 2018 will also support the VRR (variable refresh rate), which may be particularly interesting for console players.
Xbox One X and Xbox One S with Auto Low Latency Mode
In addition to FreeSync compatibility, Microsoft also announced that its two latest consoles will also be compatible with the Auto Low Latency mode offered on some upcoming TVs, including the aforementioned Samsung TVs.
This mode will detect when a game is launched from the Xbox interface and will automatically switch the TV to low-latency mode or game mode.
When you come back to the TVs main menu to launch Netflix, for example, the Low Latency mode will be disabled and your TV will automatically return to the classic settings so you can enjoy the best experience.
The Xbox One X and Xbox One S update offering FreeSync and Auto Low Latency Mode will be released by Microsoft later this spring and will be compatible with AMD PC monitors and upcoming TVs.
