In the realm of cutting-edge displays, Asus unveils its latest creation—a 27″ screen equipped with a flat WOLED panel sourced from LG.Display. Boasting a resolution of 2560 x 1440, this display takes visual performance to the next level with an impressive 480Hz refresh rate, seamlessly supported by adaptive-sync for variable refresh rates on compatible NVIDIA and AMD systems.
The specs continue to impress, featuring a rapid 0.03ms G2G response time, a stellar 1.5 million:1 contrast ratio, and a peak brightness of 1300 nits for HDR—an impressive 30% boost compared to their previous OLED monitors. The OLED panel brings forth the inherent advantages of near-instant response times, per-pixel level dimming, and an essentially infinite contrast ratio potential.
Asus maintains its commitment to user experience with the inclusion of the uniform brightness mode, designed to mitigate dimming and ABL during desktop usage. The screen also incorporates a custom heatsink, eliminating the need for an active cooling fan.
Adding to the allure, Asus touts improved text clarity across their new models, courtesy of their "clear pixel edge" technology. The 34″ ultrawide PG34WCDM, currently under review, already features this technology, and further insights will be shared in the upcoming review. Moreover, the 27″ model in focus here is set to benefit from LG.Display's updated pixel layout, promising positive changes in text clarity.
Connectivity is not overlooked, with USB type-C and Smart KVM support enriching the user experience. While HDMI 2.1 makes an appearance in their CES promotional video (with capabilities left unspecified), DisplayPort remains unmentioned in the lineup. Stay tuned for more detailed insights as we delve into the review of this innovative Asus display. The ASUS PG27AQDP will be launched at the end of 2024, and new info should be released in the following months.
