ASUS ROG Strix XG43UQ 43-inch 4K gaming monitor gets Xbox certification

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) have announced the ROG Strix XG43UQ Xbox Edition gaming monitor, a 43-inch gaming monitor (not a television, mind you) that the company teamed up with the Xbox R&D team to developed.

Designed current-gen console gaming, specifically the Xbox Series X and S consoles, the massive 43-inch Strix XG43UQ "Xbox Edition" enables native 4K (3,840 x 2,160 pixels resolution) gaming without chroma subsampling on Xbox Series X via HDMI 2.1, and supports up to 120Hz for Xbox Series X|S. The Xbox Edition includes a built-in Xbox mode that ASUS claims "will deliver the very best colour, contrast, and hue settings" when paired with Xbox Series X|S.

It goes without saying that these visual enhancements sans the Xbox mode will also work on the PlayStation 5, so if you own this console and are on the lookout for a big gaming monitor for your desk or bedroom, there's no reason not to consider this ROG gaming monitor. PC gamers won't miss out too, as it will also support 4K at 144Hz via DisplayPort 1.4. For HDR gaming, the ROG Strix XG43UQ Xbox Edition includes a HDR Gaming Interest Group (HGiG) profile to deliver amazing HDR gaming exactly as the developers intended.

In addition, the ROG Strix XG43UQ Xbox Edition includes an array of connectivity options such as USB 3.0, HDMI 2.1 and 2.0, DisplayPort 1.4, audio line-in, and an earphone jack. It also has a bundled remote control to enable users to easily adjust display settings.

All of this tech, plus the aforementioned massive 43-inch display, means the ROG Strix gaming monitor is never going to come cheap. Costing a pretty S$2,199, it will be available in the later part of this year. But if you're set on getting it, ASUS is running a pre-order promotion in the month of July where the monitor will be available for purchase for S$1,999 (S$200 discount)
