ASUS announced the ROG Strix XG32AQ and ROG Strix XG32UQ gaming monitors | Whuff News

ASUS has shared more information about the ROG Strix XG32UQ, the gaming monitor the company announced last month. Coincidentally, ASUS has also outlined the ROG Strix XG32AQ, which offers different specifications to the ROG Strix XG32UQ in a similar-looking chassis. Unfortunately, ASUS has not confirmed when the ROG Strix XG32AQ will be available, nor how much it will cost.

For now, ASUS has only revealed that the ROG Strix XG32AQ is a QHD (2,560 x 1,440 pixels) alternative, to the ROG Strix XG32UQ, which runs at 4K. Additionally, the ROG Strix XG32AQ operates at up to 175 Hz in overclock mode, 15 Hz higher than the ROG Strix XG32UQ. In contrast, the ROG Strix XG32AQ offers 95% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space, compared to the 96% coverage managed by the ROG Strix XG32UQ. The ROG Strix XG32AQ has a 32-inch IPS panel like its siblings though, which also delivers a 1 ms GtG response time with VESA DisplayHDR 600 certification.

Therefore, ROG Strix XG32AQ and ROG Strix XG32UQ should offer up to 600 nits of peak brightness and 10-bit image processing. ASUS adds that the ROG Strix XG32UQ has an HDMI 2.1 port as well, implying that the ROG Strix XG32UAQ lacks this functionality. Currently, ASUS continues to state that the ROG Strix XG32UQ will be available in Q3 2022. In other words, the monitor should be available before the end of September. However, ASUS has at least confirmed that the ROG Strix XG32UQ will sell for US$539. Probably, ROG Strix XG32AQ will be priced lower than ROG Strix XG32UQ; ASUS has not confirmed pricing for other regions yet.
