It has been a couple of months since Sony launched its own XH90 series of 4K TVs. Available from May in four display sizes, the XH90 chain prices between #1,299 and Number 3,299 in the UK and $1,549 and $3,949 at Europe. All of XH90 models are based on Sony’s 4K HDR Processor X1 and operate Android TV from the box, which gives the TVs accessibility to countless apps.
The XH90 show has been touted as being”ready for next-generation consoles” too, which Sony has declared as being”Ready for PlayStation 5″. In practice, this usually means that the XH90 will encourage 4K gaming at up to 120 FPS. Sony also boasts that the XH90 scope will offer low input lag of 7.2 ms in 4K and 120 FPS. We must point out that the company includes the following caveat at the small print:
The input signal lag is quantified with XH90 via 4K/120fps match HDMI input based on internal testing conditions, and may vary in real-time usage environment on specific ailments.
Quite simply, the XH90 should have low input lag at 4K and 120 FPS, though it might not be as low as 7.2 ms. The XH90 will additionally support BRAVIA Game Mode, which allows the TV to change to the very low latency mode when it detects that a PlayStation 5 has been linked. Sony also claims that a DualSense controller will be capable of waking the TV and PlayStation 5 concurrently.
Sony is bringing its own”Ready for PlayStation 5″ tagline for its ZH8 8K and XH92 TVs too. On the other hand, the ZH8 scope will only be capable of 120 FPS gaming in 4K, maybe not 8K. We would expect Sony to create other TVs”Ready for PlayStation 5″ in due course, although it remains to be seen whether 120 FPS and 4K gambling will probably be available if you are playing in an Xbox Collection X.
