Philips Intros 345M1CR Momentum Ultrawide 144 Hz Monitors for Next Gen Consoles

Philips late last week introduced the 345M1CR Momentum, a 21:9, 34-inch ultrawide monitor designed for next-generation game consoles (PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X), without naming them as such. The monitor offers UWQHD (3440 x 1440 pixels) resolution, 4 ms response time (1 ms with low blur mode), and 144 Hz refresh rates, and possibly features HDMI 2.0b connectivity to work with next-gen consoles. 4K UHD at 60 Hz is the core design goal of both Microsoft and Sony, although it's quite conceivable that the two could enable support (including in-game optimization) for ultrawide formats and high refresh-rates (beyond 120 Hz). There's no word on pricing or availability.

Next gen consoles and HDMI 2.0 should not be in the same sentence. HDMI 2.1 or GTFO

Consoles won't support 21:9 format. So marketing this monitor for consoles even with HDMI 2.1 would've made no sense anyway.

Since when is there some sort of direct link between "making sense" and "marketing"?
