ASRock has unveiled new additions to its Phantom Gaming line with ASRock PG558KF and PG32UMF premium gaming displays. While gamers could be waiting a very long time until they truly have the hardware to drive the flagship 55-inch 8K display, the PG558KF could fit nicely on a large desktop. Not much more was revealed for the ASRock PG558KF other than that it supports HDR1000 and has both HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4 connectors, along with some other shared features for the PG32UMF.

Meanwhile, the 32-inch PG32UMF might just be the perfect size for those not wanting something so large and as it boasts HDR1400, it is sure to be bright enough for even the darkest images. Additionally, the 144 Hz 4K panel (no word on any VRR support), features an impressive 1,152 dimming zones, and 97% DCI-P3 wide color gamut coverage.

From the press release:

“ASRock is set to showcase an exciting lineup of monitors at COMPUTEX 2023, featuring six existing products along with new gaming and business models. The spotlight will be on the PG558KF and PG32UMF, two high-end monitors.

The PG558KF is a remarkable 55-inch display that boasts 8K UHD resolution and HDR1000 support. This cutting-edge monitor equips with upgraded gear and ready for the next generation of high-definition console and PC gaming.

On the other hand, the PG32UMF Mini-LED gaming monitor offers a 144Hz refresh rate, 1152-zone local dimming, and remarkable HDR1400 with 97% DCI-P3 wide color gamut support. Its vibrant and vivid colors deliver an exceptional 4K UHD gaming experience. Both high-end models featured HDMI2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4 interfaces, as well as a USB Type-C PD3.0 90W fast charging (upstream) port and four USB Type-A (downstream) ports, provide gamers with more connectivity options.”

Next up are more conventional-sized displays with two 27-inch models along with a 24-inch offering. The PG27QF2A is designed for gaming with its 1440p/QHD 165 Hz panel. It also includes ASRock’s WiFi solution for PC connectivity. The A27FE and A24FE are both 1080p/FHD displays said to arrive in 2H23. Both feature 100 Hz panels, support AMD FreeSync and are aimed at light gaming or office work.

“Furthermore, the PG27QF2A IPS gaming monitor, designed with mainstream specifications, offers 2K QHD resolution with 165Hz high refresh rate. It featured a brand-new Phantom Gaming design and inherits the exclusive built-in Wi-Fi antenna, ensuring stable Wi-Fi reception on PCs and resolving latency and lag issues for online gaming.

Lastly, ASRock plans to launch the A27FE and A24FE models in the second half of the year. These entry-level monitors are equipped with FHD IPS panels, 100Hz refresh rate, and support for AMD FreeSync™ technology, which effectively eliminates the screen tearing and stuttering. Both models are ideally for a range of applications, including business, education, home, and light gaming usage.”

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
