The ASUS ROG Strix XG438Q monitor, first announced at CES 2019 in January, is about to launch at the end of August for £1099 in the United Kingdom.
A 43-inch display using a VA panel, it's being touted by ASUS as the 'biggest and fastest 4K FreeSync 2 HDR gaming monitor' on the market. Between the 120Hz refresh rate and the Game Fast Input technology which supposedly helps with input lag, it should be popular among those competitive gamers who just don't want to give up any image quality when playing their favorite titles.
The XG438Q is certified with the DisplayHDR 600 badge by VESA, meaning it'll be able to go up to 600 nits of brightness. There are three HDR modes available: ASUS Cinema HDR, ASUS Gaming HDR, and FreeSync 2 HDR for those using AMD graphics cards.
Owners of the XG438Q are even getting a small logo projector that uses Aura Sync ambient lighting technology. Last but not least, there's plenty of connectivity thanks to the three HDMI 2.0 inputs and one DisplayPort 1.4 input, in addition to Dual USB 3.0, audio input and earphone jack.
