ASUS recently announced a 32-inch HDMI 2.1 gaming monitor, but if that’s too small for you, the company has another display up its sleeve called the ROG Strix XG43UQ, which features a much larger 43-inch screen. The company’s Edge Up article fails to note whether this is a 4K IPS or VA panel (the latter is likely based on previous products), but it does confirm refresh rates of up to 144 Hz, as well as DisplayHDR 1000 certification and multiple HDMI 2.1 ports. Pricing and availability are unknown.

“It wraps refresh rates up to 144Hz and VESA DisplayHDR 1000 compliance into a sleek white chassis that attractively coordinates with the PS5 or Xbox Series S, or contrasts with the Xbox Series X,” ASUS wrote. “Connect your PS5 or Xbox to one of this monitor’s HDMI 2.1 ports, and the XG43UQ will seamlessly enable automatic low latency mode, variable refresh rate support, and a 120Hz refresh rate at 4K to unlock the best gaming experience from those consoles.”

ASUS has also announced the TUF Gaming VG28UQL1A 4K monitor for those of you who want a higher DPI and don’t mind having to scale the Windows desktop. This is a 28-inch IPS panel with a 120 Hz refresh rate, DisplayHDR 400 compliance, and 90 percent DCI-P3 coverage. Again, pricing and availability weren’t listed.

“The high-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.4 inputs also support VESA Display Stream Compression (DSC), allowing the monitor to function at 144Hz while displaying full per-pixel color data,” ASUS noted. “If you connect an Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5 using the HDMI 2.1 ports, you’ll enjoy an automatic low latency mode, variable refresh rates, and refresh rates ranging up to 120Hz, plus HDR visuals in supported titles.”
