Taipei, Taiwan (28 April, 2014) — ASUS today announced the PB287Q True 4K/UHD (ultra-high-definition) monitor, a 28-inch display designed for prosumers and gamers.
The ASUS PB287Q features a 16:9 aspect 28-inch white light emitting diode (WLED) display that delivers next-generation 4K/UHD visuals, with resolutions up to 3840 x 2160. With a pixel density of 157 pixels per inch (PPI), the PB287Q provides four times the pixel density of standard Full HD displays for astonishingly detailed visuals. With 300% more onscreen space than similarly-sized Full HD displays, the ASUS PB287Q provides a larger area for multiple work windows for more productive multitasking. Capable of displaying 1.07 billion colors, the PB287Q delivers outstanding color reproduction and saturation thanks to its 330cd/m˛ brightness and a 100,000,000:1 ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR). With real 10-bit display colors, PB287Q has smooth color gradations for a more natural-looking transition between hues. The PB287Q also boasts an impressive 1ms gray-to-gray (GTG) fast response time and a 60Hz refresh rate for fluid and responsive visuals required by today’s games.
