Asus has unveiled several new monitors at Computex 2015, including a 34-inch curved monitor and two monitors with 144Hz IPS panels. All three feature Nvidia G-Sync technology. Asus also has two new FreeSync gaming monitors.
Asus unveils 2015 monitor line-up
The “ROG Curved” is a new 34-inch monitor with a 3440x1440 resolution. The extremely wide 21:9 aspect ratio makes it perfect for work as well as specific types of games. It will be called PG34Q and supports Nvidia G-Sync technology at up to 60Hz. It can be connected through either DisplayPort or HDMI.
Asus unveiled two other gaming monitors named PG27AQ and PG279Q that “are both 27-inch displays with in-plane switching (IPS) technology and 144Hz” as well as Nvidia G-sync technology, which means that the monitors will automatically adjust the frame rate depending on the game. PG27AQ has 4K resolution whereas PG279Q offers 2560x1440 pixel resolution.
Asus also exhibited its two MG series monitors; 27-inch MG279Q and MG278Q. The monitors deliver 144Hz at 2560x1440 pixels. MG278Q has a TN panel with a 1 ms response time and MG279Q uses IPS. Both feature AMD FreeSync, which is AMD’s version of an adaptive frame rate system. These are obviously also gaming monitors and are flicker-free.
A new professional 4K monitor
Lastly, Asus unveiled a new ProArt PA329Q that will replace the old PA328Q. The new 32-inch IPS monitor is for professionals working with 4K and the AdobeRGB color gamut. The monitor also has DCI P3 and sRGB modes, and the panel operates at 10-bit (with an internal 16-bit LUT).
Asus will even let you choose a Rec.2020 mode, but the panel does not have full support for the new, extremely wide color gamut. It can be connected to a PC or Mac through DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 2.0, HDMI 1.4 (2x) or mini DisplayPort. There are also four USB 3.0 ports.
