ASUS revealed some interesting displays at Computex 2016, including a 180Hz monitor, a 240Hz monitor (first of its kind ever) and we have also gotten information about a 4K 144Hz gaming monitor with IPS panel, which is also the first of its kind. There’s not much information out yet regarding this particular monitor, but we’ll make sure to update this post once we receive information from ASUS or other reliable sources. This monitor is apparently the world’s first 144Hz 4K monitor. The size of the display is 27-inches.
What we do know about this monitor is that it has an amazing maximum native resolution of 3840 x 2160, also known as 4K, 2160p, Ultra HD or just UHD. This will put some heavy weight on your graphics card as it requires a lot of computational power to render such high-quality graphics at a high frame rate. With the release of the upcoming AMD R490X and NVIDIA GTX 1080, you can most likely get higher frame rates than 60 frames per second in high-end games at UHD resolution and therefore take advantage of this monitor. Whether or not you can reach 144FPS is up for debate.
The maximum supported refresh rate for this 27-inch 4K 144Hz IPS gaming monitor is 144Hz at 4K resolution, so you can enjoy a smooth and stunning gameplay even with amazing visuals if your graphics card (or cards) have enough power. The panel type is IPS, meaning that the UHD visuals will be even more stunning with great color quality and viewing angles. The panel itself is from AU Optronics (AUO) and according to ASUS’ down description, the screen will deliver stunning photo-realistic visuals.
We have not yet received information about Adaptive-Sync support yet, so we can’t say for sure if this monitor supports G-SYNC or FreeSync, or perhaps none of them. It is also uncertain whether or not the monitor will join the ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) brand.
The monitor stand itself has full ergonomic features including tilt, height, swivel and pivot adjustment options. As previously mentioned, we will update this article as soon as ASUS reveals more information about this prototype gaming monitor.
