ASUS launches a trio of FreeSync monitors

Things are starting to heat up in the display market with ASUS announcing three new FreeSync/Adaptive Sync compatible displays for both the Gaming and Professional markets.  

These monitors include the DFHD (Double Full-HD) ASUS VG49V, the Console Gaming CG32UQ and the professional grade ultrawide ProArt PA34V. All of these displays are expected to hit store shelves in the near future. 

Starting off with ASUS' new Super-Ultra-Wide VG49V, we have a 49-inch 1800R curved display with a 32:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of 3840x1080, the same resolution as two 1080p displays sitting side-by-side.  

This monitor can be powered using either HDMI 2.0 or DisplayPort 1.2 with a refresh rate of 144Hz and a FreeSync range of 48-144Hz, offering support for Low-Framerate Compensation (LFC). This super-wide aspect ratio makes this display ideal for gaming use, provided your favourite games support such a non-standard aspect ratio. 

ASUS' VG49V offers a 4ms pixel response time, though ASUS says that this can be reduced using the company's Extreme Low Motion Blur technology, though this lowers the display's maximum refresh rate to a maximum of 120Hz.

Up next is ASUS' Console Gaming CG32UQ, a 32-inch 4K monitor with support for VESA Adaptive-Sync and HDR10 signals with DisplayHDR 600 certification. As the name suggests, ASUS has designed this monitor with consoles like the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro in mind, offering support for 10-bit colour, 95% of the DCI-P3 colour gamut and zone-based local dimming. 

The CG32UQ offers a resolution of 4K at 60Hz and variable refresh rate range of 40-60Hz using either HDMI 2.0 or DisplayPort 2.0. ASUS has also stated that this display supports a feature called Halo Sync, which presumably uses LEDs on the back of the monitor to cast suitable lighting onto the wall behind the screen, delivering what feels like a wider field of view.

Third and finally we have ASUS' ProArt PA34V, a 3440x1440 Ultra-wide monitor with a maximum refresh rate of 100Hz. This display makes use of a pre-calibrated IPS monitor that delivers a delta E colour value of less than two, making this display ideal for professional-grade video editing and photography work. 

Thanks to VESA Adaptive Sync, this monitor can offer a variable refresh rate range of 40-100Hz, making this display ideal for both work and play. The ProArt also comes with DisplayPort, HDMI and ThunderBolt 3 display connectivity and can be used to charge a device with up to 60W of power, making the display ideal for modern MacBook users.

At this time ASUS has not revealed the exact pricing of any of these monitors, though they are all set to release later this year. All of these monitors will be available to view at the ASUS booth during Computex.

It's like having 2 27" monitors in one. Since it has Pbp and PiP presumably you could have two separate inputs active with only one monitor which would effectively eliminate the bezels.Quote
