Computex has given some exciting news as ASUS brought us a new prototype for a 34″ Ultrawide QHD IPS 21:9 Curved G-SYNC monitor.
Gaming enthusiasts have been asking for a 21:9 aspect ratio with a curved LCD panel. That’s exactly what’s ASUS has brought to the table at Computex.
The monitor in question features an IPS based panel with NVIDIA G-SYNC on board. Here are some of the key features revealed by ASUS:
- 34” optimal dimension for QHD resolutions with 3440×1440 resolution
- 21:9 ultra-wide aspect ratio for increased immersion and improved horizontal workflow1
- IPS based panel for superior color reproduction, black levels and reduction of color shifting
- NVIDIA G-SYNC equipped offering smooth, fluid and tear free gaming with improved motion clarity.
- Additionally equipped with ULMB operating mode for outstanding motion clarity.
- Frameless design for seamless surround gaming
- ASUS exclusive GamePlus feature and Turbo Key
- Ergonomic adjustment including tilt, swivel and height adjustment
The monitor is still being developed and under design, so ASUS was unable to commit to a release date. No price point was mentioned as well.
Refresh rate of the prototype currently stands at 60Hz and ASUS says, in order to go beyond that, a panel needs to be developed. They further mentioned bandwidth limitations with current DP implementation.
It uses the G-SYNC controller, which for now has no support for DP 1.3 that would allow it to touch or surpass 4K, with a refresh rate higher then 60Hz.
