ASRock is getting into the gaming monitor business.

Listings spotted by @momomo_us has seemingly confirmed that ASRock is planning to announce at least two monitors, the PG34WQ15R and PG27FF. The PG34WQ15R is a 34-inch gaming monitor with a 3440×1440 VA panel, while the latter is a 27-inch gaming monitor with a 1080p IPS panel.

Both monitors will support AMD FreeSync Premium technology for reducing or eliminating screen tearing and stuttering for a smoother gaminng experience.

ASRock FreeSync Premium Monitors:

  • PG34WQ15R
    • Size: 34.0″
    • LCD Type: VA
    • Resolution: 3440×1440
    • Range: 48-165 via DisplayPort 48-100 via HDMI
  • PG27FF
    • Size: 27.0″
    • LCD Type: IPS
    • Resolution: 1920×1080
    • Range: 48-165 via DisplayPort 48-165 via HDMI

AMD’s FreeSync Premium certification calls for “at least 120 Hz at minimum FHD resolution,” support for low framerate compensation (LFC), and low latency.

ASRock’s biggest competitors already have numerous gaming monitors on offer. They include MSI, ASUS, and GIGABYTE, whose current models include the AORUS FO48U, a gaming monitor that leverages a 48-inch OLED panel. That technology enables a contrast ratio of 135000:1.

ASRock only offers motherboards, graphics cards, networking products, mini PCs, industrial PCs, and server/workstation parts at the moment, according to the company’s website header.

  1. I wonder if these third parties are actually adding value to the product by way of tweaks for performance rather than just re-badging the manufacturer's product and relying on name recognition as their main differentiating selling point.

    Only a small handful of panel manufacturers. So it’s mostly branding and OSD options— occasionally get a custom overclock mode or something

    RGB is about the only thing that really sets them apart
