ASUS' new PQ321Q True 4K UHD monitor is now available for pre-order through Newegg, Amazon, or TigerDirect at an MSRP of $3,499 USD.
The PQ321Q True 4K UHD Monitor is a desktop display with a Ultra HD 3840 x 2160 resolution. It has a 31.5-inch LED-backlit 4K Ultra HD display (140 pixels-per-inch) with a 16:9 aspect ratio, and supports 10-bit RGB 'deep color'.
The ASUS PQ321Q True 4K UHD Monitor uses Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide (IGZO) rather than traditional amorphous silicon for the active layer of its LCD panel. IGZO panels support much smaller transistors than amorphous silicon, enabling much smaller pixels. Despite the increase in pixels, the PQ321Q is coming with a 30-day Zero Bright Dot warranty.
The monitor also offers 176-degree wide viewing angles on both vertical and horizontal planes, 350cd/mē brightness rating and 8ms gray-to-gray response time. It is also just 35mm at its thickest point.
The ASUS PQ321Q True 4K UHD Monitor features DisplayPort and dual HDMI ports with Picture-by-Picture support. DisplayPort's Multi Stream Transport mode allows 60Hz refresh rates at 3840 x 2160 resolution using graphics cards from NVIDIA, AMD, and integrated video from 4th Generation Intel Core processors. Built-in 2W stereo speakers remove the need for additional desktop clutter and, in addition to being wall-mountable, the monitor stand offers full height, swivel, and tilt adjustments.
