Asus is about to launch a new 4K gaming monitor – the VG289Q1A, featuring Adaptive-Sync for both AMD and Nvidia cards and support for HDR content and wide colour gamut to display “brightest whites and the darkest blacks”.
The Asus TUF Gaming VG289Q1A features a 4K IPS panel with a 60Hz refresh rate, 5ms G2G response time, and wide viewing angles. This IPS panel has a 10bit colour depth and features a maximum brightness of 350nits, and a maximum contrast ratio of 1000:1, allowing it to cover up to 90% of the DCI-P3 wide colour spectrum.
By using Adaptive-sync (FreeSync or G-Sync), the VG289Q1A provides gaming sessions without “screen tearing and choppy frame rates”. Besides the compatibility with HDR 10 content, this monitor also comes with Multi HDR mode (Asus Cinema HDR and Asus Gaming HDR).
Other gaming features included with this monitor are Shadow Boost to brighten up darker areas, Gameplus overlay features (crosshair, timer, FPS counter, and display alignment), Gamevisual colour presets for multiple game genres, and flicker-free technology and Ultra-Low Blue Light technology for a more comfortable and less harmful viewing experience.
This monitor comes with 2x 2W integrated speakers, a 3.5mm audio jack, 2x HDMI 2.0 ports, and a DisplayPort 1.2. The included stand allows the user to tilt and swivel the display, but there’s also VESA 100x100mm support if you want to use the monitor on a compatible monitor arm.
Asus hasn’t shared pricing and availability details about the VG289Q1A. You can learn more about this monitor HERE.
