ASUS Announces PB279Q 4K IPS Monitor

 

ASUS today announced the PB279Q 4K/UHD (ultra-high definition) monitor. Designed for prosumers and gamers, this 27-inch, 16:9 aspect ratio display is the latest addition to the ASUS 4K/UHD series line-up. The PB279Q has native 3840 x 2160 4K/UHD resolution and a pixel density of 163 pixels per inch (ppi). A wide 100% sRGB color gamut and 10-bit color technology means the PB279Q provides true, life-like colors; while extensive connectivity options like DisplayPort 1.2 and Mini DisplayPort provide 4K/UHD content support at refresh rates of up to 60Hz.

Showcasing detailed visuals and vivid colors

With its 4K/UHD panel, PB279Q has four times as many pixels as the existing Full HD standard for truly astonishing detail. With 300% more onscreen workspace to spread out various work windows, the PB279Q improves users’ multitasking capabilities.

PB279Q is capable of displaying 1.07 billion colors and delivers outstanding color reproduction and saturation; along with 300cd/m² brightness and a 100,000,000:1 ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR). In-plane switching (IPS) display technology provides wide 178-degree viewing angles, allowing users to view the screen from virtually any angle without color distortion.

For consistent color reproduction, PB279Q has a wide color gamut of 100% sRGB; while 10-bit color technology ensures smooth color gradations for a more natural-looking transition between hues. The PB279Q also has a 5ms (gray-to-gray) response time and a 60Hz refresh rate for fluid and responsive visuals for today’s fast-paced games.

 

Extensive connectivity with 4K/UHD support at 60Hz

PB279Q provides extensive connectivity options including DisplayPort 1.2 and Mini DisplayPort, with support for 4K/UHD content at refresh rates of up to 60Hz. In addition, there are also four HDMI 1.4/MHL (Mobile High-definition Link) ports that allow users to view content stored on a mobile device on the PB279Q, while simultaneously charging the device.

PB279Q can simultaneously showcase multiple 4K/UHD video inputs as well. Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode places the second input source window in any of the four corners of the display. Picture-by-Picture (PbP) mode splits the screen to accommodate four separate video inputs, with the user being able to easily switch between the main and PbP input sources, including audio. PbP allows you to set-up the input source windows in four different ways, and can support four 4K/UHD windows simultaneously.

 

ASUS-exclusive technologies for stunning images

PB279Q features ASUS SplendidPlus video intelligence technology to optimize videos and images by enhancing color brightness, contrast, and sharpness. It includes two new modes — Reading and Darkroom — in addition to the Scenery, Standard, Theater, sRGB, Game, and Night View modes found in previous versions.

PB279Q also comes with ASUS EyeCare technology, which adjusts direct-current (DC) level to reduce onscreen flicker for more comfortable viewing. ASUS EyeCare technology also provides the basis for Reading and Darkroom modes in SplendidPlus, effectively lowering blue light levels to reduce eye strain and fatigue for users.

In addition, ASUS VividPixel technology improves on the display’s crystal-clear and detailed visuals by enhancing image outlines and reducing noise bars. There’s also ASUS QuickFit Virtual Scale, which provides actual-size previews of photos and documents onscreen prior to printing. Onscreen square grid overlays help with alignment, adding to the overall flexibility and productivity aspects of the PB279Q display.

ASUS PB279Q will be available from January in the UK from Scan and Overclockers UK.

Actually for once I'm not, I've got both a TN and IPS panel and to me the difference is so small it would not be worth it, I've done side by side comparisons and the difference from a good TN panel to an IPS panel is miniscule.

I could see photographers loving it though for the colour accuracy.
