ASUS ROG Strix XG43UQ HDMI 2.1 Gaming Monitor

Introduction

Earlier, ASUS had dropped a new high-end gaming monitor for both console and PC gamers, the ROG Strix XG43UQ. It is a 4K 144 Hz panel with all the bells and whistles you expect from a monitor of this calibre. Likewise, it comes with the new HDMI 2.1 standard, which for you means connecting multiple input devices is a fuss-free experience. Let’s take a closer look!

Specifications

If you only read the technical specifications of this device and nothing else, you will already know that it is an amazing display. The monitor packs a 43″ 4K 144 Hz panel with an advertised response time of just 1 ms. It supports Freesync Pro Premium and G-sync, so no matter which graphics card you have, your games will look butter smooth.

It is a VA panel with a colour space gamut of 125% sRGB or 90% DCI-P3. The resolution is 3840x2160p and the response time is 1 ms MPRT. And of course, it is a 10-bit panel with 1 billion colours that bring your games to life.

The new HDMI 2.1 standard, as well as DisplayPort 1.4, make connecting the monitor to input devices simple, easy, and convenient. So, you get 2 x HDMI 2.1, 2 x HDMI 2.0, 1 x DisplayPort 1.4, 2 x USB  3.0, and an earphone jack for your headphones. There are also 2 speakers if you need them in a pinch.

Features

The main feature of this monitor is of course the panel itself. If you have a computer powerful enough to run games at 4K 144 Hz, you are guaranteed to have an incredible experience. A combination of a high refresh rate and razor-sharp resolution is unbeatable. And the 1 ms MPRT response time is great for eSports titles where you need the lowest latency possible.

AMD’s Freesync Premium Pro is the highest certification from AMD, which speaks for itself. And if you have an Nvidia graphics card, you will be happy to hear that G-sync works on the display too. This adaptive sync technology paired with DisplayHDR 1000 really brings AAA games to life. And there is also ASUS’s ELMB Sync technology for variable refresh rate support.

All that works well with Extreme Low Motion Blur technology, making games look and feel as smooth as they can possibly get. This makes the display an amazing choice for all types of games, from eSports titles like Valorant to breath-taking AAA titles such as Cyberpunk 2077. There is also Auto Low-Latency mode to make customizing the monitor for eSports titles easier.

Conclusion

The ROG Strix XG43UQ is an incredible high-end gaming monitor that has everything you could possibly want. For professional gamers, the 144 Hz refresh rate, the 1 ms response time, Extreme Low Motion Blur, and Auto Low-Latency mode will make sniping and shooting in FPS games significantly better and easier. And the HDR and Freesync technology bring AAA games to life with gorgeous colours and very sharp images.
