ASUS' 43-inch ROG Strix XG438Q 4K 120Hz monitor is now available to pre-order
Now, ASUS' ROG Strix XG438Q monitor is available to pre-order in the UK, suggesting that the screen will see full retail availability in the near future.
ASUS has already confirmed that their ROG Strix XG438Q gaming display will exceed the specifications for both FreeSync 2 HDR and VESA DisplayHDR 600, owing thanks to the screen's local dimming features and its maximum brightness level of 750 nits. The screen also sports an anti-glare coating and what ASUS calls "Gamefast Input Technology" to minimise input latency and reduce screen glare.
This screen supports AMD's FreeSync 2 HDR standard with a variable refresh rate (VRR) range of 48-120FPS. This is more than enough to active AMD's low framerate compensation technology. Input-wise this TV-sized monitor supports three HDMI 2.0 inputs as well as a single DisplayPort 1.4 connection, making this monitor usable with both gaming consoles, home entertainment systems and PCs.
With Nvidia's announcement of VESA Adaptive-Sync support, it is likely that this ROG Strix monitor will also be supported by Nvidia's hardware, though this has not been verified. Nvidia will allow PC gamers to activate Adaptive-Sync support within their drivers on uncertified displays, so we will have to wait and see how well this monitor works on Geforce hardware.
This monitor is expected to use a VA type panel and should deliver respectable levels of HDR support with 10-bit image processing, 750 nits of peak luminance, local dimming and both FreeSync 2 HDR and VESA DisplayHDR 600 certifications. The screen will also cover 90% of the DCI-P3 colour space and offer users three distinct HDR modes, ASUS Cinema HDR, ASUS Gaming HDR and FreeSync 2 HDR.
