In November, Microsoft will release the Xbox One X, the most powerful home console of our time. As officially said, the certification for the new HDMI 2.1 standard is to take place before the launch.
In recent weeks, the Redmond officials have emphasized not only time and time again that the Xbox One X is the most powerful console of our time, the features of the console are also up to date.
Among other things, it was recently confirmed that the Xbox One X will offer you the possibility to record your gameplay videos in the native 4K resolution and with 60 FPS – the support of the HDR technology, of course, included. Via Twitter, Microsoft once again went to support the new HDMI 2.1 format.
Xbox One X: HDMI 2.1 certification is scheduled to take place before November
According to Mike Ybarra of the Xbox team, the Xbox One X has only been certified to support HDMI 2.0. A certification for HDMI 2.1 could not be done yet, since the final specifications for HDMI 2.1 have not been defined so far. Thus, for the time being no platform with the support of the technology can advertise. As Ybarra points out, however, it is hoped that the certification for HDMI 2.1 can be done before the launch of the Xbox One X.
Among the innovations that HDMI 2.1 brings with it, among other things, the fact that the data rate has been significantly increased. If the data bandwidth for HDMI 2.0 is still 18 Gbit / s, it should be at HDMI 2.1 at 48 Gbit / s. In addition, resolutions of 7.680 x 4.320 (8K) can be output at 60 Hertz or 3.840 x 2.160 pixels (4K) at 120 Hertz.
The Xbox One X will appear on the 7th of November at the price of $ 499.
