    Default Xbox one X now supports hdmi 2.1

    https://ce-pro.eu/news/home-cinema/x...-future-proof/

    With HDMI 2.1, the Xbox One X is now capable of supporting resolutions up to 10K, high frame rate content, variable frame rate, and eArc. The chances of the console being capable of pushing through content with a 10K resolution remains to be seen, but at least its HDMI port is theoretically capable of it.
    Arguably the most important feature for gamers will be the addition of VRR and ALLM. VRR is the highlight feature here, as it allows the display and the console to talk to each other to ensure that their frame rates match. That means the console won’t try and output a higher frame rate than what the display is capable of, which can sometimes be the case, leading to screen tearing and other odd artifacts. This feature should also lead to a better image quality overall.

    ALLM can be equally important, as it also allows the display and console to talk with one another, although this time is checks the TV or projector for a suitable ‘Game Mode’. It then switches the display over to that mode, ensuring minimum input lag while applying image processing.

    And yet still no HDMI-CEC...

    Unless that's included in eARC only?

    You are probably right.

    I just remains so bizarre to me that especially now they will punt this 2.1 readiness but actively forego other valid features which actually make a difference in the here and now.

    At least on the X you don't need the external IR Blaster to get some of the basics that was originally provided by Kinect. It's still not great though.
