PRESS RELEASE

New 43-inch gaming monitor delivers ultra-high resolution and super-smooth visuals over a single DisplayPort 1.4 connection

KEY POINTS

  • New 43-inch ROG gaming monitor showcased at AMD Next Horizon at E3 2019 is the world's first display with Display Stream Compression (DSC) technology
  • DSC technology enables 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution visuals with a 144 Hz refresh rate using a single DisplayPort 1.4 cable
  • AMD Radeon FreeSync™ 2 HDR technology[1](Adaptive Sync) improves variable-refresh-rate (VRR) performance for smooth stutter- and tear-free gaming

LONDON, UK, June 11, 2019 —ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today previewed a new 43-inch gaming monitor and the world's first with Display Stream Compression (DSC) technology at the AMD "Next Horizon Gaming" event at E3 2019. Display Stream Compression technology is an industry-wide compression standard for transporting ultra-high definition video streams across a single interface at high speed with no perceptible loss of visual quality.

With DSC technology, the new ROG monitor can display incredibly detailed and smooth visuals at native 4K resolution with a 144 Hz refresh rate via a single DisplayPort 1.4 connection without chroma subsampling, which can negatively affect visual fidelity. Previously, to achieve this level of performance gaming monitors needed two DisplayPort connections to transfer the video signal from the PC, which also often required complex driver configuration and prevented display of high-dynamic-range (HDR) content and variable refresh rates while gaming. The new ROG monitor eliminates these issues, supporting both HDR and variable refresh rates via a single DisplayPort 1.4 connection.

The new ROG monitor offers an immersive 43-inch big-screen experience without sacrificing the ultrafast and variable refresh rates usually only found in smaller panels. AMD Radeon FreeSync™ 2 HDR technology synchronises the monitor’s output to the GPU’s frame rate for smooth and stutter-free gaming, while optimised input lag gives competitive gamers a big advantage in timing-sensitive battles.

Support for HDR expands the contrast range and offers deeper blacks and brighter whites for a richer image with more depth than regular SDR. The new ROG monitor meets the VESA DisplayHDR 1000 specification with 10-bit image processing and 1000 cd/m peak luminance. Localised dimming plays an integral part in matching the VESA’s standard’s black level performance requirements, and 90% coverage of the DCI-P3 gamut quantifies the display’s colour output advantage.
