This is the perfect gaming monitor for next-gen consoles in the Sony PlayStation 5 and Microsoft Xbox Series X, or upcoming next-gen NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3000 series and AMD RDNA 2 aka Big Navi graphics cards with HDMI 2.1 when they launch over the coming months and into 2021.

ASUS has baked in Auto Low Latency that allows consoles to control the processing mode of the display, where it will be able to prioritize either low latency or processing quality depending on what you're doing at the time.
