The World’s first HDMI 2.1 gaming monitor is announced by ASUS Gaming Brand, Republic of Gamers. This HDMI 2.1 monitor will offer a maximum of 43 inches screen size. It has passed all the compatibility and validation tests by Allion Lab Incorporation. The monitor has a 4K resolution.
All the consoles that have HDMI 2.1 certification will be compatible with the ASUS ROG monitor. The all-new HDMI 2.1 provides support for 4K UHD or 3,840 x 2,160 resolution by giving a full bandwidth of 48Gbps. The monitor also offers a jaw-dropping refresh rate of 120Hz.
Specialization in the Product testing tag is held by Allion Lab Incorporation, which is an International Company. Brian Shih, The Vice President of Logo & HW Validation Consulting at Allion Labs, said that ROG is the first company to provide a monitor with HDMI 2.1 support. The Vice President also stated that they would test it properly as it is their job and are happy to contribute to the overwhelming success of ROG and its outstanding HDMI 2.1 supported gaming monitor.
The monitor has gone through a lot of tests at Allion Labs. A few of the tests are FRL Electrical, FRL Pixel Decoding, and FRL Protocol tests. These tests will ensure the compatibility of HDMI 2.1 with future devices. All the tests mentioned above were given the tag of Fixed Rate Link (FRL) tests.
Three different variants are to be released by ROG. The three variants will offer screen size of 27, 32, and 43 inches. This move ensures the availability of a smaller monitor with all the high end features for a gaming setup. This is an interesting move by Asus as these monitors have been released before the release of Xbox Series X and Ps5.
Asus has not revealed the technical specifications like the panel used, number of connectivity ports, the type of video connectivity ports included, etc. They have not even given a specific date for availability or any information related to its pricing.
