2018 seems to be the year of console gaming monitors as we have already begun receiving information about such monitors. While Philips announced the first monitor of the Momentum range, which is basically a TV without the TV function, ASUS introduced to Computex the CG32UQ, a large 4K monitor, which comes with a number of features specifically deployed for Xbox users One X and PlayStation 4 Pro
The new ASUS monitor integrates a 31.5 "panel made using VA technology, capable of displaying images at a frequency of 60 Hz. This is one of the few VESA DisplayHDR 600 certified monitors, delivering HDR10 compatibility and a maximum brightness of 600 cd / m2. In fact, the colors displayed cover 95% of the DCI-P3 range, which may offer more "accurate" HDR images than a 4K HDR budget TV
Also, the display frequency is dynamic between 40 and 60 Hz for devices that support Adaptive-Sync (or FreeSync), while the latency should be somewhere around 13 milliseconds, close to that of other gaming monitors performance.
Being a monitor for consoles, it also benefits from some exciting bonuses. For example, we have two stereo speakers of 5W each, a 3.5mm audio jack, a four-port USB hub for controllers, headphones or other accessories, and three HDMI ports, plus a DisplayPort 1.2 port. The latter is probably included for gamers with multiple consoles as well as PCs. Bonus, compared to other monitors I've previously encountered as "monitor for consoles," the CG32UQ from ASUS will also be delivered with a remote control for setting controls or selecting remote video inputs
Another interesting thing that we rarely find on monitors or TVs is the Halo Sync ambient illumination behind the monitor using 38 RGB LEDs, the colors being matched to the content displayed on the screen. This is a technology similar to Philips Ambilight, but which in one way or another does not violate the Dutch patent
The monitor was just present, but no details of price or availability were provided. Most likely, however, the ASUS CG32UQ will be launched in the year 2018.
