ASUS will tap DisplayPort 1.3, as it will need the bandwidth to drive the huge 3840x2160 resolution at 144Hz. We don't know if the monitor will support NVIDIA's G-Sync or AMD's FreeSync technology, but if I had to guess, I'd say ASUS will take some of that NVIDIA G-Sync lovin' for their 4K 144Hz monitor. DP 1.3 can be found on the latest video cards, including the new GeForce GTX 1080, GTX 1070 and the upcoming Radeon RX 480 from AMD.
