Monitor suggestions for PS5
« on: 06:56 AM - 10/18/20 »
Hello guys, would someone have a suggestion for a monitor that would go well with the ps5, I know that the best would probably be to wait for hdmi 2.1 monitors to be released but that seems like it will be around January, the eve spectrum looks promising but with their history I don't really dare to preorder one, the acer and asus will probably cost over 1k which is a little steep for me. I would be looking for a monitor that's not larger then 27 inc, picture quality is not that important to me and it should have low latency. I am greatfull  for all suggestions.

Dont spend alot and get one without HDMI 2.1. You will regret it.

Asus is releasing some this fall supposedly, but no word on when or how much.

If you cant wait and don't care about picture quality get a dirt-cheap, but fast response time 60hz TN panel like this https://www.amazon.com/Dell-1920x1080-Gaming-Monitor-Model/dp/B07ZHHSB5Y/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=60hz+tn+monitor+gaming&qid=1603069471&s=electronics&sr=1-2

I would definitely wait. Eve Spectrum is simply the first of many that will release in the coming months.

I recently purchased this ASUS TUF Gaming VG27WQ1B , I really hope playstation 5 supports Freesync though . Ms have confirmed support for Xbox series x but nothing from Sony.. I'd probably buy series x if it's going to perform better with my new monitor. Need to confirm xim support also so I'm holding off on both consoles until I know more.

Given both consoles run an AMD architecture, it's almost a given that freesync will work on PS5.

I'm more interested if 1440p @ 120Hz is an option for next-gen consoles.

Xbox Series S will be a perfect match for your TUF monitor, series X if you want more power and might change monitor in the future.

I know that that I am going to regret it, if I don't get a hdmi 2.1 monitor. Had my hopes up for the Asus but it looks like both Asus and Acer are going to release their first hdmi 2.1 monitors in January atleast according to the Chinese preorder page for their monitors.
