ASUS ROG Swift PG329Q-W: 32-inch 1440p IPS, 175Hz, 1ms gaming monitor

Anthony Garreffa | Mar 5, 2022 11:40 PM CST

ASUS has just unveiled its new ROG Swift PG329Q-W gaming monitor, with a 32-inch IPS panel and native 2560 x 1440 (1440p) resolution -- backed up by a huge 175Hz refresh rate -- and 1ms response time. Not bad, ASUS.

ASUS ROG Swift PG329Q-W: 32-inch 1440p IPS, 175Hz, 1ms gaming monitor 01

Inside, ASUS deploys its Fast IPS Display technology that allows the "display's liquid crystal elements to change four times faster than established IPS panels for enhanced response". Motion blur and smearing are no issues, with under 1ms gray-to-gray response time, and vivid colors with DCI-P3 98% color gamut and 1000:1 contrast ratio.

It wouldn't be a new ASUS ROG Swift gaming monitor without RGB lighting, with ASUS including its in-house Aura Sync lighting technology. This means if you've got any other Aura Sync-enabled products (motherboard, etc) then you can tweak your RGB lighting in one easy place. There's also DisplayHDR 600 certification, that's not bad -- but it's not an OLED panel -- remember.

VESA intros DP40, DP80 UHBR cables for DisplayPort 2.0: 4K 240FPS

Anthony Garreffa | Mar 1, 2022 7:29 PM CST

DisplayPort 2.0 display connectivity is nearly here so the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) has just announced a new certification program... and I don't know if it makes things any easier for consumers, like, at all.

VESA intros DP40, DP80 UHBR cables for DisplayPort 2.0: 4K 240FPS 02

VESA has announced the new DisplayPort UHBR (Ultra-high Bit Rate) data transfer rates that the next-gen DisplayPort 2.0 standard will offer, with the introduction of the new DP40 and DP80 UHBR cables. In the future, you'll see DP40-marked cables that are good to support the UHBR10 standard (up to 10Gbps across four lanes, for up to 40Gbps of bandwidth).

Meanwhile, DP80-marked cables will support the UHBR20 standard (up to 20Gbps across four lanes, for up to 80Gbps of bandwidth). The higher bandwidth unleashes new capabilities: uncompressed 8K 60Hz HDR, 4K at up to an insane 240Hz with HDR, 2 x 4K 120Hz with HDR, or a bonker 4 x 4K 60Hz with HDR -- all over a single cable -- mighty impressive.

Alienware 34-inch QD-OLED gaming monitor: 3440x1440 @ 175Hz for $1300

Anthony Garreffa | Feb 13, 2022 6:32 PM CST

Alienware's new AW3423DW gaming monitor is right around the corner, offering a 34-inch QR-OLED (Quantum Dot OLED) panel and native 3440 x 1440 resolution with a huge 175Hz refresh rate.

Alienware 34-inch QD-OLED gaming monitor: 3440x1440 @ 175Hz for $1300 01

While it's not a true OLED gaming monitor, the QR-OLED panel will offer a filtering layer that converts blue light emitted by the OLED panel underneath into red, green, or blue subpixels required for an image. This means that the quantum dots let more light pass through than traditional filters, releasing light omnidirectionally... increasing viewing angles.

You will get all of the technological and image quality benefits of an OLED panel, with Alienware's new AW3423DW gaming monitor packing 0.1ms response time and pure blacks -- so we have 3440 x 1440 native res + 175Hz refresh rate + QR-OLED panel + 0.1 response time -- alrighty then.

Lukos tease 14-inch portable 4K gaming monitor: 3840 x 1100 @ 60Hz

Anthony Garreffa | Feb 1, 2022 9:45 PM CST

Lukos has come out of nowhere announcing a very... well, let's just say interesting portable gaming monitor. The new Lukos Ultrawide 4K monitor is a new 14-inch IPS-based monitor with a 32:9 aspect ratio and a very weird 3840 x 1100 resolution display.

Lukos tease 14-inch portable 4K gaming monitor: 3840 x 1100 @ 60Hz 01

The company does claim that the 3840 x 1100 panel has 100% sRGB and a 2ms response time, while gamers won't be too happy with the suck-ass 60Hz refresh rate. Lukos' new Ultrawide 4K monitor can support 2 and 4 multi-view features, where you can plug 4 different inputs into the monitor.

Lukos' new monitor can accept either four different 1920 x 550 streams or dual 1920 x 110 streams at the same time. If you wanted to use it, well then you could use it as a streamer... or as someone who loves to have data in front of them, you could have CPU and GPU temps displayed right in front of you -- so that 60Hz refresh rate doesn't matter too much.
