ASUS flagship HDMI 2.1 monitor now available for preorder, costs 1,800+ USD

The 43-inch 4K 144Hz gaming display from ASUS is now available for preorder in Europe.

The ROG Strix XG43UQ is a 43-inch 4K 144Hz display. It supports DSC and ELMB Sync and has 90% of DCI-P3 coverage. At CES 2021 ASUS has announced three monitors, including 28 and 32-inch, each with a 144 Hz refresh rate. This panel has 1ms 4K VA-type panel that supports DSC as well as Auto Low Latency Mode (ALMM).

The XG43UQ features four HDMI ports, two of them are HDMI 2.1 and two HDMI 2.0. This monitor supports FreeSync Premium Pro and VRR. The XG43UQ has 90% of DCI-P3 color space coverage and is compliant with HDR1000 specifications, which means a peak brightness of 1000 nits.

One would say that 43-inch panels are just about the perfect size for 4K resolution. Most commercially available 27 and 32 inch 4K panels still require the windows scaling option to be modified to at least 125%. With a 43 inch panel, this will likely not be necessary.

The ASUS ROG STRIX XG43UQ is now available for 1,349 GBP (1,878 USD), 39,990 CZK 1,822 USD or 16,990 SEK (1,989 USD). When it comes to the shipping date, some store claim that it will become available in April, whereas others expect the first shipment in May.
