ASUS ROG Strix XG438Q: 43-inch 4K 120Hz gaming monitor - OMG

ASUS might have the perfect large-screen gaming monitor with its 43-inch 4K 120Hz HDR FreeSync

Computex 2019 - ASUS unveiled its big and beautiful ROG Strix XG438Q gaming monitor at CES 2019 and once again at Computex 2019.


A refresher on the ASUS ROG Strix XG438Q -- it's a huge 43-inch 4K monitor with a smooth 120Hz refresh rate and support for HDR. ASUS has tapped AU Optronics for a VA panel so we have great contrast ratios compared to IPS and TN panels, with peak brightness of 450 nits and up to 600 nits for HDR content while it rocks 90% DCI-P3 wide color gamut.

I didn't get time today to play with it but I intend on spending time with the ROG Strix XG438Q during the week and I've told ASUS reps that I want the first panel that arrives in Australia and I have my wallet ready.


The 43-inch panel is a much more natural fit for 4K compared to the small 27-inch panels, and it's much bigger than some of the 32-inch 4K monitors that are much better at displaying 3840x2160 natively but there aren't many rocking 120Hz yet.

ASUS has VESA DisplayHDR 600 certification, localized dimming for higher contrast, 10-bit color depth, and more. It rocks AMD FreeSync 2 HDR support so it'll be perfect for the new Navi-based Radeon RX 5700 series graphics cards coming soon.


A quick look at display connectivity, too.
