There was no shortage of new hardware to see when we visited ASUS at CES 2019, and included in the mix were three monitors with some really impressive details.
First up we took a look at the 43″ ROG Strix XG438Q, a VA-based 4K LCD panel that is configured to meet the VESA DisplayHDR 600 specification. In addition to great color depth and reproduction, the XG438Q supports a 120Hz refresh rate and FreeSync 2 HDR. With a low frequency compensation range from between 48 and 120Hz, this display is sure to provide a great gaming experience. This unit is also expected to soon be on the list of NVIDIA’s new “G-Sync compatible” monitors.
Next up was the XG32VQR, a 32″ 1440p curved monitor. With an 1800R curve, this 144Hz monitor is designed to be a bit more immersive, enhancing your gaming experience. A 94% DCI-P3 color gamut makes for impressive color reproduction. Again we see Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR support and DisplayHDR 400 compliance.
Last but not least was the 49″ ROG Strix XG49VQ, an ultra-ultra-wide monitor with a crazy 32:9 ratio. The resulting 3840×1080 resolution provides a crazy amount of peripheral vision, and looked great running the racing demo we saw. Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR is present here as well, and offers a maximum refresh rate of 144Hz.
No pricing is available with any of these displays, but we can expect to see the XG49VQ and XG32VQR sometime in January 2019, with the XG438Q arriving sometime this spring.
