Asus brings three new ROG Strix monitors for gamers at the CES 2019: huge, bold and high-end. Just say that the smallest has a 32-inch display size. But let’s start with the biggest one, a 49-inch monitor called XG49VQ and it’s super-ultra wide, with a resolution of 3840 x 1080 pixels – basically the equivalent of two 27-inch FHD monitors side by side. It has a 144 Hz refresh rate, AMD FreeSync 2 HDR support, DisplayHDR 400 certified, and 90% of the DCI-P3 color space.
The Asus ROG Strix XG438Q has a 43-inch display size, but thanks to the traditional aspect ratio are much more impressive and thanks to the integrated 10w speakers it has more potential in the living room than on a desk. The monitor has 4K resolution and 120 Hz refresh rate. This monitor also supports AMD FreeSync 2 HDR, and 90% of the DCI-P3 color space.
The specifications of these two models make it look like the last of the lot, the XG32VQ has 16:9 aspect ratio, 1440p resolution, 31.5-inch display size and DisplayHDR 400 certification. Even here the maximum refresh is high – 144 Hz, again with support for AMD FreeSync 2 HDR technology, but does better than other models on color fidelity: up to 94% DCI-P3 color space.
The 49-inch ultra-wide and 31.5-inch monitor should arrive on the market by the end of the month, while the 43-inch monitor in the spring. At the moment there are no details on pricing.
