ASUS’ PQ321 4K monitor was on display at the company’s booth at Computex.
The 31.5 inch monitor can push 3840×2160 pixels, which is four times the resolution of full HD. It has s a pixel density of 140 PPI. The monitor supports 10-bit RGB colour and has a 8 ms grey-to-grey response time.
ASUS is also including something it calls Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide (IGZO) technology, an evolution over the amorphous silicon usually used in monitors, to cut down the bulk of the screen.
Visually, the monitor looked stunning. The content on the screen looked sharp, the colours were rich and it looked more vivid and realistic than 1080p content. The problem with a monitor of this size is the lack of content available for it; most computers won’t have the GPU power to push out graphics at 4K resolution.
The ASUS PQ321 has an MSRP of $4,000. A release date for North America is not yet set.
