Asus’ Republic of Gamers (ROG) has pioneered several state-of-the-art gaming monitors, some of them offering a wide-variety of advanced refresh rates like 144Hz, 240Hz and even 360Hz. Now, ROG has announced the launch of world’s first HDMI 2.1-certified gaming monitor.
The new ROG monitor, being HDMI 2.1 certified, support 4K UHD (3840×2160) and offers refresh rates of up to 120Hz. It gives a full bandwidth to support 48 Gbps, and it is equipped with ‘Auto Low Latency’ which enables the game console to control the processing mode of the display, which, according to the content displayed, further prioritises low latency or processing quality.
ROG has also stated that, “Allion Labs subjected the monitor to stringent Fixed Rate Link (FRL) tests, including FRL Electrical, FRL Pixel Decoding and FRL Protocol tests, to ensure full compatibility with upcoming HDMI 2.1 devices”. The ROG 4K 120Hz monitor is made keeping in mind the next-gen gaming consoles (PS5, Xbox Series X, etc.) which are going to release towards the end of 2020.
The ROG 4K 120Hz monitor will be available in 27”, 32” and 43” variants.
