Microsoft and Samsung have partnered to push the synergy between the upcoming Xbox One X and Samsung’s line of QLED TV sets. During a showcase event hosted by the house of Xbox in New York City, DualShockers had a chat with Samsung National Training Manager Scott Cohen about the partnership and all things TV for gaming.

We hear more on how the console and Samsung’s TVs can work together to give us the best experience, including the fact that the process signal coming from the Xbox is “so perfect” that there is very little that the TV’s game mode can do to further improve it, so it goes right through the processor to keep input lag the lowest possible.

Interestingly, the latest Samsung sets will also recognize the console, and relabel the HDMI port so that you’ll immediately know at a glance when you’re switching to your Xbox One.

You can check out the video below, and if you want to see more from the Xbox One X event in New York City, you can watch some pristine Forza Motorsport 7 gameplay, and the related interview.

You  can also watch our hands-on time with the console itself, an interview with Product Manager Ryan Moore, more chats about Sea of Thieves and Middle-earth: Shadow of War, and more charming Cuphead gameplay.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
