When it comes to computer input devices used by digital artists and graphic designers, Wacom is probably one of the more dominant brands around. Sure, there is the argument that the iPad Pro could be a legitimate alternative, but that’s a debate for another day. In the meantime for fans of Wacom, it looks like the company has announced two new drawing tablets.
Announced as part of the company’s Cintiq lineup, Wacom has taken the wraps off both the Cintiq Pro 13 and Cintiq Pro 16 devices. For those unfamiliar, the Wacom Cintiqs have been around way before the iPad Pro, and to a certain extent they almost do the same thing where users can draw on the screen using a stylus.
Both the Pro 13 and Pro 16 models will feature multi-touch gesture support and will also come bundled with the new Pro Pen 2. However there is a difference between both models and that the Pro 13 has a Full HD display, while the Pro 16 has a UHD display. The Pro 16 model also covers more of Adobe’s RGB gamut at 94%, while the Pro 13 covers 87%. Whether or not you can tell the difference of 7% will depend on user to user.
Unfortunately neither models will come cheap. The Cintiq Pro 13 is priced at $1,000 and is available next month, while the Cintiq Pro 16 will retail for $1,500 but it will only come in February, 2017.
