Philips is preparing to launch another two monitors to its lineup. These are more geared towards the professional market due to their feature-set and absence of adaptive sync technologies (cue NVIDIA's G-Sync and AMD's FreeSync), but offer pretty interesting capabilities other than that. The 328P6AU offers a QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution on its 31.5" IPS-ADS panel. It can hit 400 nits of brightness (which AMD says is enough for FreeSync 2 HDR-ready panels and other manufacturers are touting as HDR capable as well). It can reproduce 98% of the AdobeRGB color gamut (thus, it can likely cover 100% of the sRGB color space). Refresh rate should be at 60 Hz.
The 328P6VU, however, is the more interesting of both panels, with its UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution, 31,5" IPS-AAS panel. It can hit a higher 600 nits in brightness, and supports the second best thing next to OLED's contrast capabilities: local dimming. Granted, there as just 16 zones in this panel, but that's still a whole lot more zones of adaptive brightness than in the usual panels. This should improve contrast ratio compared to other panels that don't offer local dimming. Philips mentions 95% coverage of the NTSC color space, and nothing else.
Connectivity-wise, both monitors include 1x DisplayPort, 1x HDMI, and 1x D-Sub (VGA) inputs, as well as 1x USB-C port, which can be used as a display input as well as an upstream port for a hub featuring USB 3.0 ports and a GbE connector. The Philips 328P6AU is set to hit the market next month, though no pricing has been detailed as of yet. Oddly, the monitor that is furthest away from release does have pricing information: the 328P6VU is set to arrive in Q1 2018, for an extremely interesting €529 - €549 in Europe ($632 - $655). This is very competitive for a 4K display with this amount of connectivity and, let's not forget, local dimming capabilities. A shame Philips isn't including the royalty-free FreeSync on this display.
