ASUS today announced its Republic of Gamers (ROG) brand new 43 ” 4K gaming monitor with 120Hz frame rate and HDMI 2.1 certification. The announcement is purely nominal, the upcoming novelty does not yet have its own name, and ASUS has not disclosed the parameters.
At the same time, the manufacturer calls the upcoming monitor the first such product to receive HDMI 2.1 certification, adding that the device has passed all tests for compliance with the requirements of the leading independent laboratory Allion Labs.
The upcoming 43-inch ASUS ROG display is perfect not only for demanding PC boyars, but also for console gamers, especially owners of the upcoming Xbox Series X and Sony PlayStation 5 consoles – both are known to support HDMI 2.1.
The final specification of the High Definition Multimedia Interface 2.1 standard was approved at the end of 2017. The HDMI 2.1 interface provides 48 Gbps bandwidth, allowing you to broadcast 4K signals at 120 frames per second or 8K at 60 fps. It also provides support for Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) and Quick Frame Transport (QFT) technologies.
Along with the 43-inch model, versions with a smaller screen diagonal – 27 and 32 inches will be available.
This monitor is expected to go on sale by the end of the year in time for the nextgen consoles. There is no data on the price either, but such a monitor will definitely not be cheap.
