ASUS 4K 31.5" Monitor
 
ASUS unveils 31.5-inch 4K monitor ahead of Computex

Asus is releasing a 4K 31.5" Monitor soon apparently,

I'm a little skeptical about how useful this thing will be. Hell I don't know that's there's much that needs to be at a higher resolution than 2560x1600. Price is probably going to be brutal as well.

That being said, I'm no monitor expert, so it could be that it'll blow everyone's socks off for all I know.

the last popular one on monoprice was only good for 30fps, wich is an HDMI limitation. Take your pick 1080p at 60fps or 2160p at 30fps, not until a new HDMI standard is out there will anything higher be possible.

Great for productivity/workstations, but at 8 ms gray-to-gray response time (ASUS to launch PQ321 31.5 inch 4K monitor with IGZO display - VR-Zone - VR-Zone), it is definitely not for gaming or to be more specific, not (competitive) multiplayer.

The monitor stand resembles ones off of some Dell ones I have seen, or is it just me?

I was thinking about the HDMI limitations as well. Unless this is coming out with the new HDMI rev (1.5?), it will definitely have some caps to deal with. If it has display port though, I think it will do 4K at 60Hz.

I'm pretty skeptical on how the monitor will turn out, but I'll keep an open mind and if the reviews say it's the best thing since sliced bread, well all the better for the PC crowd.

I doubt it will be awesome for the avg joe user...but for photo-editors and other professionals....omfg...sign me UP. Give it another say 2 gens and then the consumer grade versions will be great for mere mortals like us. :P

Hopefully after 2 gens it also won't cost as much as buying a used car....

8ms response time is not bad at all for gaming, it's not that long ago that even the fastest TN panels were considered good at that. IPS aren't generally better either unless you go for the top end ones and even then the better ones are still 5ms.

Pitty about only getting 30hz out of it.. Thought they were doing something like dual HDMI for these to get the bandwidth up?

Not sure, but I might pick a bonesaw up... You know, just in case. :ph34r:

I saw $3800 somewhere... can't remember which site though. That doesn't seem overly unreasonable since 1600p (30") monitors go for $1300.
