If there was one ultimate gaming monitor for the PC Master Race, it has to be the ASUS ROG Strix XG43UQ Gaming Monitor.
ASUS definitely is on the right track to be the next gaming label in the industry with this wicked toy that puts every other gaming monitor to shame. Featuring a 43-inch 4K UHD (3840 x 2160p) display and a 144Hz refresh rate, it packs in plenty of added functionality on the side, such as AMD FreeSync Premium Pro Technology, Display Stream Compression, Extreme Low Motion Blur, Shadow Boost, DisplayHDR 1000, and a 90 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 gamut.
All of these elements, however, aren’t all that uncommon in recent builds, especially with how far technology has evolved over the years. Where it really stands out is in its boosted support for console gaming, where the 4K and 60Hz combination has long become a standard for PlayStation and Xbox owners due to the lack of the much-needed HDMI 2.1 port on most monitors.
That won’t be a concern here, as the STRIX XG43UQ ships with a multitude of ports for increased connectivity options, including that elusive HDMI 2.1 outlet. The result is a smooth and vibrant gaming experience that carries equally well over to the PC and console platforms, with the decent audio quality lending an additional touch of immersion.
But there’s only so much words can do to describe the prowess of the monitor, which is perhaps best seen in action. For a clearer look at the capabilities of this beast, check out our in-depth review video above to see all that gaming excitement in all its brilliance.
The ASUS ROG STRIX XG43UQ Gaming Monitor is available now on Lazada.sg for S$2,099.
