Some of the most important things you look for in a gaming monitor include the size, refresh rate, resolution, response times, display, and performance. To get the most out of your gaming experience, having a monitor which is lag-free and gives a fluid performance is a necessity. Not to mention quick response times and a quality display as well as the ensuring that the monitor has the ability to run even the most graphically demanding titles.
Also, a lot of gaming monitors have Nvidia G-sync technology and AMD FreeSync, which means that the display technology delivers smooth and fast gaming performance, minimises display stutter and input lag and eliminates screen tearing.
The PS5 and Xbox Series X will both support features that will make the gaming monitor friendly and offer a smooth gaming performance.
Monitors have a major advantage over TVs in which they have certain features which TVs do not have, something beneficial to esports players and pro gamers, including ultra-wide pixel resolutions, high refresh rates, and pixel response.
