Asus introduced a new 4K monitor at Computex today, and it's a monster. The ProArt PA329Q stretches its 3840x2160 resolution over a 32" IPS panel.
The display offers 10-bit precision and a 16-bit lookup table. It's calibrated at the factory to cover 100% of the Adobe RGB spectrum with a delta E ≤ two, which should please the content creation professionals Asus is targeting. There's also a BT2020/DCI-P3 mode that tweaks the color gamut for video production.
Although the PA329Q lacks variable refresh, it's loaded with inputs. Mini and full-sized DisplayPort 1.2 jacks are available alongside one HDMI 2.0 and dual HDMI 1.4 ports. All but the HDMI 1.4 ports can drive 4K resolutions at 60Hz.
The narrow bezels look great for multi-monitor setups, and the stand is adjustable every which way. There's also an integrated USB 3.0 hub, but it sadly lacks Type-C ports. Maybe next year.
Pricing and availability haven't been announced. Given ProArt's size and professional-grade panel, I wouldn't expect the sticker to fall under a grand. Asus older 31.5" ProArt monitor is selling for $1400 right now.
