ASUS has introduced its new XG32UQ monitor from its STRIX Series. It is a 32 inches display monitor with 4k resolution and comes with support for HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4 standards. The monitor has a refresh rate of 120 Hz out of the box, but it can be overclocked to a maximum of 160 Hz.
The ASUS XG32UQ features a fast IPS panel with a response time of 1 ms. It also has DisplayHDR 600 certification, reaching a peak brightness of 450 nits which is further increased to 600 nits in the HDR mode. It is also certified for AMD FreeSync Premium Pro and is G-Sync compatible too.
“The ROG Strix XG32UQ is a 32 inch 4K UHD IPS professional gaming monitor designed for 160Hz (OC) gaming. It features the latest HDMI® 2.1 standard to support up to native 4K 120 Hz visuals on the latest consoles without subsampling, and Display Stream Compression (DSC) technology and NVIDIA® G-SYNC® Compatible enable supersmooth experiences on PCs. A 96% DCI P3 color gamut and DisplayHDR™ 600 certification complete the package, ensuring exceptional colors for incredibly immersive, lifelike gaming.”
One thing lacking is the ease of connectivity. We don’t see any USB Type-C connector and there also appears to be no KVM functionality either. These features are usually typical to higher end monitors such as this one. For connectivity, this does have a USB Gen1 (5 Gbps) Type-B connector and Gen 1 Type-A.
The monitor, however, is packed with gaming features like the Game Plus or the extreme motion blur.
So far ASUS has not shared any information on the pricing and there appears to be no mention of the release date too.
