Asus releases 43″ HDR monitor with 4k resolution and 120Hz panel for 1199 euros

Asus releases its Republic of Gamers Strix XG438Q monitor, announced at the beginning of this year, for a suggested retail price of 1199 euros. The 43″ screen has a VA panel with a 4k resolution and a maximum brightness of 600cd/m2. The monitor will be released this month.

Several online stores have included the XG438Q monitor in their range and offer it for prices around 1200 euros. According to the shops, the delivery time is one to two weeks. Asus announced the gaming monitor at the CES trade show early this year. It is the first 43″ 4k monitor with a refresh rate of 120Hz from a well-known manufacturer. Last year a South Korean brand already released a screen with these characteristics, but that is a monitor with an IPS panel with a lower brightness .

Asus uses a VA panel with FreeSync 2 support for its 43″ gaming monitor. The screen can display HDR and therefore has a peak brightness of 600cd/m², while the maximum brightness for the entire screen is 450cd/m² according to the specifications. RoG Strix XG438Q has DisplayHDR 600 certification and can display 90 percent of the dci p3 color space, according to the manufacturer.

Other manufacturers have already released 4k HDR monitors in the 43 “format. For example, MMD introduced the Philips Momentum 436M6VBPAB with DisplayHDR 1000 certification last year. That screen costs 549 euros and has a refresh rate of 60Hz.
