As Scott discovered last week, Asus' 28" PB287Q 4K monitor is pretty sweet. That isn't the only new 4K display the company has up its sleeve, though. At its pre-Computex press event yesterday, Asus unveiled a fresh 32-incher with a 3840x2160 pixel array. Behold the PA328Q:
This beast looks like a replacement for the 31.5" PQ321Q that was introduced last year. Asus didn't disclose the panel type, but the display has 10 bits of precision per color channel, allowing it to produce over one billion colors. The PA328Q offers full coverage of the sRGB color gamut, Asus says, and its 14-bit internal lookup table apparently delivers "smoother gradiations and more transitions between hues." Factory calibration should ensure that the colors are reasonably accurate fresh out of the box, too.
The stand has the usual assortment of height, tilt, and rotation options. Connectivity includes mini and full-sized DisplayPort 1.2 inputs plus one HDMI 1.4 port and one HDMI 2.0 port. The DP and HDMI 2.0 ports support 4K resolutions up to 60Hz, but the HDMI 1.4 input can only do 4K with a 30Hz refresh rate. Although there's no mention of the scaler, I suspect this is a single-tile display.
We don't have information on the PA328Q's price tag or when it might hit stores. There are a few other perks worth mentioning, though. The display has a SuperSpeed USB hub built in, support for mobile devices via the MHL 3.0 spec, and a picture-in-picture mode. And I want one—or maybe three.
