Did you recently snap up a new [ PS5], [ Xbox Series X] or [ Xbox Series S]? You can connect your new game console to just about any [/news/the-best-tv-for-2020-lg-tcl-sony-vizio-and-more-compared/ TV] with an [/news/best-hdmi-cables-for-your-new-4k-and-hdr-tv-for-2020/ HDMI] input. But if you want the ultimate gaming experience, you'll probably also want a new TV. These gaming consoles have a number of next-gen graphics features that require a [/news/the-best-tv-for-2020-lg-tcl-sony-vizio-4k-oled-hdr/ cutting-edge TV] to fully exploit. Just about every TV these days has [/news/4k-1080p-2k-uhd-8k-tv-resolutions-explained/ Ultra HD 4K resolution], but extras like [/news/ps5-and-xbox-series-x-can-game-in-8k-resolution-should-you-care/ 120 frames per second input and variable refresh rate], which increase smoothness and reduce choppiness and tearing, are only found in newer TVs. 
Luckily, you don't have to spend a fortune on an [/news/lg-88-inch-8k-oled-tv-costs-30000-impresses-friends-and-neighbors/ 88-inch 8K behemoth] to get these console-friendly features. Some of the most important features are available in TVs that cost less than $1,000 for tour sapa a 65-inch screen.
Best TVs for PS5 and Xbox
Below you'll find a chart with all of the TVs we know about that support advanced [/games/ gaming] features, including 120Hz input and VRR as well as the more common Auto Low Latency Mode, aka Auto [/news/best-tv-for-gaming-of-2020-low-input-lag-high-picture-quality/ Game Mode], and [/news/hdmi-audio-return-channel-and-earc-for-beginners/ eARC]. All of those extras are roughly grouped under the [/news/hdmi-2-1-what-you-need-to-know/ HDMI 2.1 standard], but we're in a sort of transition period for HDMI technology. As a result, not all of the TVs below include every feature nor deliver the full video and audio bandwidth HDMI 2.1 is capable of.

Even more confusing, input capability can vary on the same TV. Behind the physical connection where you plug an HDMI cable is a subsection of the TV's processing, namely a chip. These chips cost money, like everything else. In order to keep costs down, not every input on the TV is fully capable of all the latest features and frame rates. To put it another way, every road on Earth could be capable of highway speeds but building them all that way would be expensive and rather pointless.

For example, one HDMI input might be capable of eARC, but not be able to handle 4K at 120Hz. Just something to keep in mind as you peruse. Also, there are some important brand and model specifics that didn't fit in the chart; please check the bullet points below for details.

Finally, the consoles themselves are in a transition period too. The hardware of the PS5 console can technically support VRR, but unlike the Xbox Series X and Series S, it's not enabled yet. Sony's [ PlayStation 5 FAQ] says VRR will be added via a future software update.

Notes and specifics Prices are current as of press time but may fluctuate.There are some TVs that fit the criteria but weren't included because they're so expensive, namely 8K TVs like [/news/lgs-2020-oled-tvs-ship-soon-start-at-1500-and-go-up-to-30000/ LG's ZX series] and [/news/samsung-2020-qled-tvs-go-on-preorder-focus-on-8k-cost-a-bundle/ Samsung's Q950TS and Q900TS series].The PS5 and Series X can also output 8K resolution to compatible TVs, but we consider 4K/120Hz, VRR and other enhancements like ray tracing and even HDR [/news/ps5-and-xbox-series-x-can-game-in-8k-resolution-should-you-care/ more important than 8K for gaming].Samsung doesn't specify which inputs can handle 4K120 or eARC. It is unlikely that all do, but when we asked, the company didn't clarify. We did review the Q80T, however, and can confirm that Input 3 is compatible with eARC and Input 4 with 4K120.[/tags/sony/ Sony] says the software update that enables the X900H to accept 4K120 and eARC is "rolling out now" with VRR and ALLM coming "at a later date."[/tags/vizio/ Vizio] M-Series is only 60Hz but still has VRR.
[/tags/tcl/ TCL] 6-Series can only accept 4K at 60Hz, but can accept 1440p at 120Hz.
Our picks 
We've only reviewed a few of the TVs from the chart above so far, so those are the ones we can recommend among our picks for the best TV for PS5, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S game consoles. We expect to review more soon and we'll be updating this list periodically. Note that all of the prices shown below are for the 65-inch sizes and we've included our [/news/best-tv-for-gaming-of-2020-low-input-lag-high-picture-quality/ input lag measurements] for both 1080p and 4K HDR sources.








[ Best overall]








[ LG OLEDCXP series]

David Katzmaier/CNET



[/awards/ ED I T O R S ' C H O I C E Nov 2020]


The 2020 LG CX is the best-performing TV we've ever reviewed, and we also consider it to be our top pick for the best TV for PS5, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S game consoles. If you're counting milliseconds, the LG OLED smart TV also has the lowest (best) input lag of the four TVs.

1080p input lag: 14ms

4K HDR input lag: 14ms

Sizes: 48-, 55-, 65-, 77-inch

[/awards/ ED I T O R S ' C H O I C E Nov 2020]


Our [ ] is a solid choice for gamers at less than half the price of the LG CX, with a new THX mode that combines [ ] and high contrast. Unlike the other two picks, its 120Hz input maxes out at 1440p resolution, not 4K. The [ ], making the two a great match (more details below).

1080p input lag: 20ms

4K HDR input lag: 18ms

[ Best value with true 4K/120Hz]




[ Sony XBR-X900H series]






[ ]

Sarah Tew/CNET



With overall image quality on par with the TCL 6-Series and a price that's not that much more expensive, the X900H's suite of connections is actually better than the TCL. It's the most affordable TV with full 4K/120Hz HDMI input capability and full-array local dimming.

1080p input lag: 16ms

4K HDR input lag: 15ms

Sizes: 55-, 65-, 75-, 85-inch

[ Second-best value with true 4K/120Hz]








[ Samsung Q80T series]










[ ]



David Katzmaier/CNET



It's more expensive than the Sony TV above with similar image quality, but it's still the least-expensive Samsung with full-array local dimming, so its picture quality beats that of the Q70. And as usual with Samsung, its design is top-notch.

Note that the 49- and 50-inch sizes in the series lack 4K/120Hz and VRR support.

1080p input lag: 21ms

4K HDR input lag: 20ms

Sizes: 49-, 50-, 55-, 65-, 75-, 85-inch

[ Cheapest with VRR]








[ Vizio M-Series Quantum]










[ ]







The least expensive gaming TV on this list can't accept 4K/120Hz input at all -- it's a 60Hz TV -- but it still supports VRR, as well as Auto Game Mode and eARC.

1080p input lag: 28ms

4K HDR input lag: 27ms

Sizes: 50-, 55-, 65-inch

120Hz input explained
Despite TVs being capable of 120Hz refresh for well over a decade, the ability to input 120Hz is a far more recent development. This is largely due to the fact that other than a fairly beefy gaming PC, there just haven't been any 120Hz sources. That all changes with the PS5 and Series X. Some of the TVs on our list can accept 4K at 120Hz on all HDMI inputs. Others can only do so on select inputs and one, the TCL 6-Series, can only accept 120Hz at lower-than-4K resolution (1440p).

The Xbox Series S can also output 4K at 120Hz, but internally the game is rendered at a lower resolution (1440p) and [/news/xbox-series-x-vs-xbox-series-s-its-all-about-4k-vs-1440/ upscaled before it's sent to your TV]. 

For more info, check out [/news/ultra-hd-4k-tv-refresh-rates/ the truth about 4K TV refresh rates] and [/news/beware-fake-120hz-refresh-rates-on-4k-tvs/ beware fake 120Hz refresh rates on 4K TVs].

Nvidia's G-Sync works similar to VRR. Ideally 1. the video card creates an image in enough time for the TV to refresh 60 times each second. Sometimes it takes longer to render the scene, 2. so the TV is sent a duplicate of the previous frame. The image stutters and your mouse/controller movements become inaccurate. You could disable v-sync in your video settings so there's less or no judder, but the image tears, 3. VRR, like G-Sync and ATI's FreeSync, lets the display and video card work together to figure out the best frame rate, 4.

VRR
VRR, or [/news/how-hdmi-2-1-makes-big-screen-4k-pc-gaming-even-more-awesome/ variable refresh rate], is a new feature that you'd probably be surprised wasn't already a thing. All modern TVs have a fixed refresh rate. A 60Hz TV is going to refresh, or create, a new image 60 times a second. The problem is a new console might not be ready to send a new image. 

Let's say you're in the middle of a huge boss battle, with lots of enemies and explosions. The console struggles to render everything in the allotted time. The TV still needs something so the console might send a duplicate of the previous image, creating juddering on screen, or it might send a partially new image, resulting in the image looking like someone tore a page off the top and revealed the new page below.

VRR gives the TV some flexibility to wait for the new frame from the console. This will result in smoother action and less tearing.

All the TVs below have VRR. For more info, read [/news/how-hdmi-2-1-makes-big-screen-4k-pc-gaming-even-more-awesome/ how HDMI 2.1 makes big-screen 4K PC gaming even more awesome].
ALLM/Auto Game Mode
Game mode turns off most of the image-enhancing features of the TV, reducing input lag. We'll discuss input lag below, but the specific feature to look for is called either [ Auto Low Latency Mode] or Auto Game Mode. Different manufacturers call it one or the other, but the basic idea is the same. Sensing a signal from the console, the TV switches on game mode automatically. This means you don't need to find your TV's remote to enable game mode. Not a huge deal, but convenient. All the TVs listed above have, or tour du lịch sapa will have, one or the other.

What about input lag?
One thing missing from the chart above is any listing for [/news/game-mode-on-cnet-tests-tvs-for-input-lag/ input lag], or how long it takes for the TV to create an image. If this is too high, tour du lịch sapa there's a delay between when you press a button on the controller and when that action appears on screen. In many games, like shooters or platformers, timing is crucial and a TV with high input lag could hurt your performance. 

As a longtime console gamer myself, I can easily notice the difference between high (greater than 100ms) and low (sub-30ms) lag. The good news is, most modern TVs have input lag that's low enough that most people won't notice it. Largely gone are the days of 100-plus-millisecond input lags … at least when you enable game mode.

So as long as the TV has a game mode, you're probably fine, though it's worth checking [ ] for the exact numbers to see if it has low input lag. Lower, in this case, is always better.
eARC
While not a console feature, [/news/hdmi-audio-return-channel-and-earc-for-beginners/ eARC] is a next-gen TV feature to keep in mind. It's the evolution of ARC, or Audio Return Channel. This sends audio from a TV's internal apps (such as Netflix or Vudu), back down the HDMI cable to a receiver or [/news/best-soundbars-for-2020/ soundbar]. With eARC, newer formats like [/news/dolby-atmos-why-its-cool-how-it-works-and-how-to-get-it/ Dolby Atmos] can be transmitted as well.

The issue is in many cases, eARC often precludes higher resolutions or frame rates on the same input. So if you've connected your PS5 to your receiver and the receiver to the TV, you can have eARC audio back from the TV or 4K120, but usually not both. This is only important if you plan on using the internal apps in a TV (as in, not a [/products/roku-streaming-stick-plus/ Roku] or [/reviews/amazon-fire-tv-stick-2020-review/ Amazon streaming stick]) and you want to use the new audio formats via eARC.
