ASUS has announced the world’s first 32-inch HDMI 2.1 gaming monitor, the ROG Swift PG32UQ. This is a 4K (3840 x 2160) IPS display capable of refresh rates of up to 144 Hz and a moving picture response time (MPRT) of 1 ms. The ROG Swift PG32UQ also covers 98 percent of the cinematic DCI-P3 color space and is DisplayHDR 600 certified for true, high-contrast HDR and higher peak brightness.
“It has two HDMI 2.1 ports to support up to 4K visuals at up to 120 Hz on the latest gaming consoles,” ASUS noted. “It also has Display Stream Compression (DSC) technology, a compression standard for transporting ultra-high definition video streams across a single interface at high speed with no perceptible loss of visual quality. It allows PG32UQ to support up to 4K 144 Hz visuals via a single DisplayPort 1.4 connection.”
“PG32UQ is G-SYNC Compatible ready and features ASUS Extreme Low Motion Blur Sync (ELMB Sync) technology and ASUS Variable Overdrive technology for consistently smooth visuals at variable frame rates. For color performance, PG32UQ is DisplayHDR 600 compliant, has 160% sRGB and 98% DCI-P3 color gamut support, and is factory pre-calibrated to ensure Delta E < 2 color accuracy.”
ASUS says that the ROG Swift PG32UQ will be available starting from Q2 2021 in North America. Pricing is unknown.
