ASUS teased a new line of Republic of Gamers (ROG) branded gaming monitors that feature HDMI 2.1 connectivity. With 48 Gbps of bandwidth and the latest data-stream compression technologies at hand, HDMI 2.1 enables ASUS to do 4K high refresh-rate monitors, complete with support for 10-bit color, the most feature-rich HDR implementations, G-SYNC, FreeSync Premium, and other variable refresh-rate technologies, and lots more. HDMI 2.1 can herald resolution configurations such as 5K 120 Hz and 8K 60 Hz; we also predict the likes of 4K 175 Hz, or 1440p 360 Hz. Currently, NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 30-series "Ampere" and AMD Radeon RX 6000 "Big Navi" graphics cards support HDMI 2.1. We'll learn more during ASUS CES event.
