CES 2019 - ASUS has just announced a new family of gaming monitor under its ROG branding, with the new ROG Strix XG monitors coming in three different flavors: 31.5-inch 1440p and a huge 43-inch 4K panel that both boast high refresh rates as well as a 49-inch 32:9 display with 144Hz.

The first thing I noticed was the new 43-inch 4K 144Hz display that arrives as the ROG Strix XG438Q, which ASUS says is the largest and fastest 4K FreeSync 2 HDR gaming monitor on the market. We have a VA panel used with 90% of the P3-D65 gamut, 120Hz refresh rate (which is a huge deal as a big 43-inch 4K panel) and meets the VESA DisplayHDR 600 specifications.

The smaller STRIX XG32VQR is a 32-inch monitor with a native 2560x1440 resolution and faster 144Hz refresh rate, but it covers 94% of the P3-D65 color gamut. It also features Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR technology, and is DisplayHDR 400 compliant.

ASUS also unveiled a new 32:9 UltraWIde gaming monitor with a native 3840x1080 resolution and 144Hz refresh rate, covers 90% of the P3-D65 color gamut, and is VESA DisplayHDR 400 compliant.

  • ASUS XG32VQR - 31.5-inch / 16:9 / 2560x1440 / 144Hz / Radeon FreeSync HDR 2
  • ASUS XG438Q - 43-inch / 16:9 / 3840x2160 / 120Hz / Radeon FreeSync HDR 2
  • ASUS XG49VW - 49-inch / 32:9 / 3840x1080 / 144Hz / Radeon FreeSync HDR 2

ASUS won't be releasing the higher-end STRIX XG438Q until sometime in the spring while the other two models are available later this month.
