When are HDMI 2.1 Monitors coming out? Here's everything we know so far

The big question on most people's minds, asides from how to find a PS5, is when HMDI 2.1 monitors are coming out. And we can't blame them for asking, as much of the information is seemingly hard to go by, however, there are some gold nuggets out there, which can give us a better idea of when to get our wallets ready.

Here's everything we know so far about when we can expect HDMI 2.1 monitors to hit the market.

When are HDMI 2.1 Monitors coming out?

In short, we can expect to see some HDMI 2.1 monitors this year.

At the time of writing, there are currently no HMDI 2.1 monitors available, so if you're looking to get 120hz at 4K we'd say head on over to the TV section, as there are a few TVs on the market which are HDMI 2.1 compatible right now.

But as we mentioned, there are some nuggets of information which can give you some hope that HDMI 2.1 monitors are, indeed, coming out.

Notable mentions so far include the likes of the Asus ROG Swift PG32UQ and the Asus TUF Gaming VG28UQL1A, which are both said to be coming out in the second quarter.

When will we hear more?

As usual, we've got our ear pressed firmly against the ground for any and all information about HDMI 2.1 monitors, however, after CES 2021 it would appear that things have gone a little quiet.

We're predicting that we'll likely hear more closer to the beginning of March.

We'll keep you posted, that's for sure.

Is it worth buying a 4K monitor?

You may be asking if it's actually worth buying a 4K monitor right now with HDMI 2.1 monitors on the horizon? We'd say yes!

4K at 60hz, which is possible when using HDMI 2.0 on either Xbox Series X or PS5 still looks amazing, especially when you pair it with the best screen size for gaming.

And if you're playing competitively, arguably it's more about frame rate and smaller screens to get the edge, of which there is a whole host of monitors which are best for competitive gaming.
