Will the Xbox Series X have a DisplayPort?

Best answer: Xbox Series X will not have a display port, as confirmed by Microsoft.

The Xbox Series X has no DisplayPort, but adapters should work

We recently got the full rundown of the Xbox Series X ports, with official information from Microsoft. Unfortunately for those that wanted it, the Xbox Series X will not have DisplayPort natively. The only port for visuals the Xbox Series X has is HDMI-out. A 2.1 spec, the HDMI port on the Xbox Series X supports up to 8K visuals with variable refresh rates, making for a smooth gameplay experience for anyone with a compatible TV or monitor.

If you're using a monitor that only has DisplayPort as an option, an HDMI-to-DisplayPort adapter should work, you just have to double-check what specifications the adapter has. We could only find adapters that support up to 4K signals at 60 Hz with HDR, which would be fine in most instances, but if you want some more advanced HDMI 2.1 features, you may have to wait for new adapters to hit the market.
