Getting under the hood you have an IPS Quantum-Dot panel with DCI-P3 Color Gamut support, a 4 ms response time, 178°/178° viewing angles, 10-bpc (1.07 billion colors) support, 300-1000 cd/m² maximum brightness, and 20,000:1 static contrast ratio.

Like most of these displays it requires DisplayPort 1.4 to sustain 4K @ 144 Hz with 10-bpc color. You also have HDMI 2.0. There are ASUS features like GamePlus (OSD stuff), GameVisual (display presets), as well as a 2-port USB 3.0 hub. The stand and the back of the display feature RGB lighting, which you can control with ASUS’s Aura Sync RGB software. No word yet on pricing, but expect this one to be around the $2K mark.
