Xbox One X And One S Will Soon Support 1440P Streaming
Here is a good news for both Xbox One X and Xbox One S console gamers. According to Kevin Gammill, the Xbox program manager, both the Xbox One and Xbox One S will receive an update to support native 1440p content streaming. There is no mention of the actual time frame, with the next software update the feature could be rolled out.
Xbox One X and Xbox One S are the most powerful gaming consoles from Microsoft to date. However, both models downscale the content from 1440p to 1080p, which makes us to play the games at a lower resolution.
Many questions recently around the timing of our 1440p support. Those of you in our early preview ring should be pleasantly surprised very soon if you have an Xbox One S or Xbox One X.
