ASUS will launch the previously announced 42″ and 48″ OLED screens at Benelux starting next month. The PG42UQ monitor with a diagonal of 42 inches costs 1,599 euros, while the larger screen PG48UQ of 48″ costs 100 euros.
ASUS will display the previously announced PG42UQ and PG48UQ monitors at Gamescom shown It will be available soon. Earlier there was no information about the version and price level. The monitors will be coming to the Benelux market sometime in September at the listed prices.
earlier mentioned ASUS already claims that Rog Swift OLED displays can display 98 percent of the DCI-P3 color space. Also, the color reproduction from the plant will already be at a level where the aberrations cannot be seen with the naked eye. Both displays have two HDMI 2.1 connections, two HDMI 2.0 ports, a DisplayPort connection, and a USB hub. A 3.5mm headphone jack and S/PDIF audio output are also available. The monitors have a remote control, with which you can call up a menu similar to that of a regular ASUS gaming monitor. There is no built-in smart environment.
The screens have a 4K resolution and a refresh rate of 120Hz, although the overclocking is possible to 138Hz. The response time specified in gray to gray is 0.1 milliseconds. To keep the heat under control and thus increase the life span, the heatsink is part of the screens design. With this said, ASUS doesn’t seem to be referring to the heat sink that some OLED TV manufacturers apply directly to an OLED screen, but a system that can diffuse heat better than a printed circuit board. To extend the life, there are also many anti-burning features. Similar to LG’s OLED TVs, there is a pixel shift function, pixel refresh, a screen saver, and a function to automatically recognize and dim static elements such as logos.
Both screens have a file WBE . wool board From LG Display, also known by the marketing term “Evo”. This generation is older than the latest OLED EX panel, which can provide higher brightness and is found in more expensive 2022 LG TVs, although its counterpart to the smaller PG42UQ, the LG 42C2, sometimes uses an older WBC panel. Team. A pair of screens can achieve a maximum brightness of 450cd/m², not as bright as an OLED TV. ASUS says it’s working on a firmware update that should allow brightness to rise to 700cd/m² soon, although – as with all woled panels – this value will only be accessed in a small white box.
A special feature of the panel used is the anti-reflective coating, which OLED TVs generally do not have. As a result, the screen surface is practically similar to the surface of a regular LCD screen. ASUS isn’t the only party that has come up with a matte OLED display. LG itself has the 48GQ900 in its lineup and BenQ will soon come with a matte OLED display.
