ASUS has unveiled its new PB279Q monitor, which is a new 27-inch 4K display that offers an IPS panel for some beautiful color reproduction and image quality.

The ASUS PB279Q has a native resolution of 3840x2160, at either 30Hz or 60Hz depending on your display connectivity. 4K over HDMI will offer 30Hz, while DisplayPort will offer 4K at 60Hz. ASUS offers up 10-bit color, and 100% sRGB coverage which is better than Dell's IPS-based panels which offer 99% sRGB coverage.

We have MHL-based HDMI connectivity, with four HDMI ports on the monitor that are capable of displaying four 1080p feeds at once. There's no USB ports on the ASUS PB279Q, but we do have a 3.5mm headphone jack, and 3.5mm audio-in jack. The 4K monitor provides a fully adjustable stand which is capable of tilt, swivel and pivot, as well as being VESA compatible.

ASUS hasn't provided a price just yet, but we should expect it to arrive at around $799 or so.
