Following the $2,200 semi-professional 32-inch, 4K 16:9 monitor announced at last year’s Computex, ASUS is back with a follow-up model dubbed PA329Q. The most notable improvement here is it now delivers 100 percent Adobe RGB color gamut, as opposed to just sRGB; plus it has a 16-bit internal lookup table instead of just 12-bit.
For those who are into video production, you’ll also appreciate the added support for the BT2020 / DCI-P3 color space. The new display is otherwise almost identical to its predecessor: you get the same set of ports (1x HDMI 2.0, 2x HDMI 1.4, 1x DisplayPort 1.2, 1x Mini DisplayPort 1.2 and 4x USB 3.0) and the same 10-bit display color. Each unit is also factory pre-calibrated for high consistency, though it also boasts “the highest compatibility with major hardware calibrators,” should you wish to do it yourself.
We’ll come back with more info regarding availability if we hear any.
