ViewSonic releases its 32-inch 4K 144Hz Mini LED ELITE XG321UG Gaming Monitor

ViewSonic's latest 4K Mini LED Monitor is HDR Gaming Monster

This quarter, ViewSonic plans to launch a new 4K Mini-LED monitor called the ELITE XG321UG, a 32-inch gaming monitor that utilises Nvidia's G-Sync Ultimate technology to deliver 4K HDR gaming at 144Hz. 

With 1152 dimming zones, ViewSonic's ELITE XG321UG has the ability to offer deep black levels and ultra-bright highlights. While Mini-LED cannot offer the per-pixel luminance of OLED screens, its local dimming capabilities are capable of delivering impressive results. What's even more impressive is that this local dimming technology is designed to keep up with this monitor's maximum refresh rate of 144Hz. 

VESA has rated ViewSonic's ELITE XG321UG as being DisplayHDR 1400 certified, verifying that this screen is capable of insane peak brightness levels. This screen is designed to be used with DisplayPort 1.4, with it being the only port that's capable of supporting this screen's 144Hz maximum refresh rate. This screen also features support for multiple HDMI 2.0 connections. Sadly, HDMI 2.1 is not supported by this gaming monitor.

With a price tag of $2,499.99, ViewSonic's ELITE XG321UG G-Sync Ultimate monitor will be priced well outside of the price ranges of most gamers. That said, this monitor is not targeted at most PC gamers, it's targeted at gamers who already own an ultra-high-end Nvidia-powered gaming system. 

ELITE XG321UG Specifications:

- Full Mini-LED FALD with 1152 total dimming zones
- 32-inch mini-LED monitor IPS with native 4K UHD (3840x2160) resolution
- 144 Hz refresh rate; 3.6 ms response time
- NVIDIA G-Sync Ultimate G-Sync and Reflex technologies
- VESA DisplayHDR 1400 for 1400 cd/m² peak HDR brightness; SDR Brightness of 400 cd/m²
- Connectivity includes: HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort, USB-A/B Hub and 3.5 mm Audio-Out
- Customizable ViewSonic ELITE RGB Lighting
- Available: Q1 2022 for an estimated street price of $2,499.99 [USD]

Specs are great, Aesthetics are nice and clean but with that price it's staying on the shelf Quote

You're telling me a price tag that high and not even HDMI 2.1? Really going to expect people to use compression on such a high end monitor? What a joke. Like dice said it's staying on the shelfQuote

That's the price of G-Sync Ultimate. It needs that Nvidia chip inside, and that NV chip doesn't support HDMI 2.1.Quote

I understand that and I think Nvidia is on crack if they haven't bothered to upgrade their chip in the past few years.Quote

It isn't a huge priority for them. They know that DisplayPort 1.4 is what a lot of PC gamers will use and that they just need to main PC connector to be optimised. Nvidia's optimising for their products first, not someone else's (consoles).

Beyond that, there are a lot of snobby folks out there that deep enough in the PC Master Race (hate that term) mindset that they won't care much about console support either.

Nvidia will probably create a G-Sync module with HDMI 2.1 at some point, I just don't expect them to be in a rush. Beyond that, DisplayPort 2.0 is coming. That will be their focus when the time comes. DP 2.0 should offer near 80 Gbps of bandwidth.Quote
