My System Specs


I've seen it talked about in a couple places, more info...

Aprox $3500
Runs 2 hdmi cables, acts as two monitors of half the resolution (left/right side of panel) full 60hz, Think eyefinity with no bezel in the middle. Amd/Nvidia or your os in general needs special 4k compatible drivers to sort that out, in beta right now.

Have an A-1 day!

Arrow Hot Hardware has a full review of ASUS PQ321

Hot Hardware has a full review of ASUS PQ321: ASUS PQ321 Ultra HD 4K 31.5-inch Monitor Review - HotHardware. Also lists Amazon.com for the price source of 3499 USD: Amazon.com: ASUS PQ321Q 31.5-Inch 4K Monitor: Computers & Accessories

What I don't get is if I am gonna spend 3500 peso, why in my right mind would I use a dual HDMI set-up, instead of a single DP. Maybe there is a valid/good reason, just I don't see it.

I really want to jump on the 4K wagon, but can't really justify it yet at that price.

I'll wait until Apple ups their Thunderbolt monitor to 4K and see what that does to prices.

I would love a 4k monitor as I am a pixel density enthusiast, but I can't justify the headaches of being an early adopter and having a less than great experience when paying a ton of money. Just don't see 4k gaming being a smooth experience for a while.
