ASUS has confirmed that the ROG Strix XG43UQ, the world’s first HDMI 2.1 monitor, will be available for purchase beginning next month. The ROG Strix XG43UQ features a 43‑inch panel, 144 Hz refresh rate, 1 ms MPRT, and Display Stream Compression technology that enables 4K 144 Hz via DisplayPort 1.4. ASUS’ ROG Strix XG43UQ monitor has also been blessed with DisplayHDR 1000 certification, which means that it can reach brightness levels of up to 1,000 cd/m2. Pricing information was not included in the press release.
Along with offering amazing 4K 120 Hz gaming on the latest consoles via HDMI 2.1, Strix XG43UQ includes an Auto Low-Latency mode to reduce input lag, with less than half the input latency of 4K TVs. It also has variable refresh rate (VRR) technology to decrease tearing and framerate stutter, and it utilises Display Stream Compression technology to transport ultra-high-definition video across a single high-speed interface with no perceptible loss in video quality.
