It goes without saying that it would take a powerful system to pump out 144 frames at 4K but with G-Sync they’ve got you covered for tearing issues. What makes this a first is that the monitor supports DSC or Display Steam Compression. This newer standard is what enables them to support that 144Hz/10bit color over DP 1.4. No U.S. prices have been announced but OC3D reported on seeing them at OVERCLOCKERS U.K. for £1,538.95. ASUS states that the response time is with internal testing and may vary under other test conditions.
