In the display industry, there are displays made for everyday use, there are displays designed and optimized for gaming, and then there are also displays aimed at the working professional who might have need for a more color-accurate display when editing photos or videos. If you fall into the latter category, ASUS might have something for you.
At IFA 2019, the company has officially taken the wraps off its new ProArt Display. While it could have always been on the company’s roadmap, we can’t help but feel that this could be ASUS’ answer to Apple’s very own Pro Display XDR. While both displays are targeting the professional market, there will be some differences.
One of those main differences is that with the ASUS ProArt Display, the company will be giving it a 4K resolution instead of 6K. However, both models feature 32-inch display sizes and ASUS also claims that its ProArt Display will be the world’s first display to feature HDR 1600 with a 120Hz variable-refresh rate, trumping Apple’s 60Hz display. It is also VESA pre-certified for DisplayHDR 1400.
It will also feature the use of quantum-dot technology which will allow it to support a wide color gamut with DCI-P3, Adobe RGB, sRGB, Rec. 709 and Rec. 2020 color space. Some of the connectivity options that come with the display include Thunderbolt 3 ports, a DisplayPort, HDMI ports, and a built-in USB hub. There is no word on pricing just yet but the display is only expected to ship in the first quarter of next year, so we imagine we’ll learn more about its pricing then.
