ASUS Announces ROG Strix XG43UQ Xbox Edition Monitor

ASUS today released the ROG Strix XG43UQ Xbox Edition, a large 43-inch monitor that's designed for competitive gameplay in the living room. The monitor comes with a native resolution of 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160 pixels), and is capable of 144 Hz refresh-rate, and has DisplayHDR 1000. ASUS worked with Microsoft to optimize the monitor for the Xbox Series X/S consoles, and packed the monitor with an "Xbox Mode," which optimizes it for Xbox gameplay. Other features that add to its gaming prowess include Extreme Low Motion Blur (ELMB) Sync, AMD FreeSync Premium Pro, and 1 ms response time (MPRT). The VA panel features a matte anti-glare surface. Display inputs include DisplayPort 1.4, and two HDMI 2.1.

Update Jun 25th: ASUS listed the monitor for USD $1,399, with October 2021 availability.

It's OLED, I'd rather not. Sure, other panels my not hold a candle in terms of image quality but reality issue of OLED panels always have them bringing up the rear for me. Degradation over time, and burn-in are a infinitely more noticeable than blacks not being inky or colors slightly not a vibrant.

Jesus, for that price, err....wouldn't it just be better to buy a nice TV and call it a day? :roll:

Asus/ROG needs to lay off the crack already.

I have no idea why Monitors continue to be so expensive while using an old technology, while you can get a OLED.

I think you haven't used an OLED before, the difference is huge. And definitely aren't aware of progress in OLED technology, burn-in isn't a big risque anymore unless you abuse the TV, by abusing means you do it on purpose.

When manufacturers like LG remove the 'not for professional use' warranty disclaimer that is essentially aimed at burn in, I'll contemplate using a OLED monitor.f

As is, I avoid using static content on my C9 as much as possible.

Yes, the difference is huge when they're side by side, but on their own using something else isn't making you think "Gee, I wish this was an OLED" and no it still happens but not as bad as when it first arrived but not fixed to the point where someone has to go out of their way to make it happen, if care isn't taken forgetting to turn of the monitor before heading out work, or falling asleep at the desk is enough.

Show me 43" 144 Hz monitor with HDMI 2.1, DP 1.4, local dimming and HDR1000 that costs $399.

Sure it's expensive but it's not far from other alternatives in the monitor market.

john_Oh, nice. Another overpriced brand is compared to this overpriced brand. Please just agree to disagree. And if you like those monitors with those prices so much, just upgrade your little cheap Acer monitor. What do you mean no?

I'm able to give you two examples that show that this is what you actually have to pay for a monitor with similar spec? Also please show me where have I said that I like these prices?

You do realize that you are showing me, for example, the price of an RX 6900XT and you try to justify that price by showing me the price tag of an RTX 3080 TI, right?

So, are you buying any of those monitors you showed to me, or are you just hyping them? There are many people who hype ultra expensive hardware that they would never buy. Just asking.

This isn't 2010, so 43" isn't big enough for a living room any more, especially not at that price which will get you an fantastic 65" 120Hz gaming display with VRR or something smaller and a decent sound system to go with it.
