ASUS Ultra Wide G-Sync monitor has “PG348Q” model number. It offers one DisplayPort 1.2 and one HDMI 1.4 input. HDMI 1.4 will only support 3440 x 1440p @ 50Hz.
Meanwhile, the Display Port 1.2 can handle this resolution at up to 100Hz. However, even a GTX 980 Ti will have a hard time pushing out 100 FPS at that resolution so clearly, the monitor should only considered by PC enthusiast who are running things in SLI. We also have 4-port USB 3.0 hub and two 2W speakers.
The official price of this monster is yet to be revealed but it should start shipping by May. Considering the features it offers, we are looking at a price range of $800 to $1200.
