XBox Consoles Now Support 120Hz

Fantastic news for Better Than 60Hz fans:

Microsoft announces an OS upgrade this May 2018 for existing XBox One consoles owners to add 120 Hz, which will be demonstrated at E3 2018.

120Hz Comes to Consoles

In April, we added variable refresh rate, 1440p resolution support, and auto low latency mode. But we aren’t done just yet. In May, we’re adding support for additional panel refresh rates. Gamers with gaming monitors and televisions that support a 120Hz refresh rate can now turn on 120Hz support for 1080p and 1440p output resolutions. This high refresh rate option means you can now take full advantage of displays with 120Hz capabilities.

Microsoft also made FreeSync availableΒ for XBox One owners.

120 Hz will work with or withoutΒ FreeSync, so any 120+ Hz monitor or 120 Hz+ FreeSync monitorΒ will work with the new XBox software upgrade.

This makes the XBox One console the first gaming console in the world to support a refresh rate above 60 Hz.

It is worth mentioning that most newer 4K LG OLED HDTV televisions already support 1080p 120 Hz refresh rate, even though this feature is not well-advertised.

Given surge of great Better Than 60Hz initiatives of XBox One (1440p, 120Hz, FreeSync), we have now created the XBox One Console forum in Blur Busters Forums to help you get the highest frame rates and lowest input lag for gaming consoles.

To get your XBox software upgrades that adds 120Hz and FreeSync, go install theΒ Insider Hub app on your XBox One console.
