ASUS Republic of Gamers presents the world’s first display with Display Stream Compression (DSC) Technology that enables 4K resolution with smooth 144Hz refresh rate using a single DisplayPort 1.4 connection. It is a new 43-inch ROG gaming monitor that supports AMD Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR technology that improves variable-refresh-rate (VRR) performance to deliver smooth stutter-free and screen tearing-free gaming visuals. The upcoming gaming monitor was presented at AMD’s “Next Horizon Gaming” event at E3 2019.
The Display Stream Compression Technology enables the new ROG gaming monitor to achieve detailed and smooth visuals at native 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution with a smooth 144Hz refresh rate through a single DisplayPort 1.4 cable without chroma subsampling which reduces visual fidelity. Without this technology, gaming monitors would require two DisplayPort connections to achieve such visual output and required complex driver configurations which also prevented high-dynamic-range (HDR) content and variable-refresh-rates (VRR). Display Stream Compression Technology eliminates both issues thus creating the new 43-inch 4K 144Hz ROG Gaming Monitor.
The new ROG monitor offers an immersive 43-inch big-screen experience without sacrificing the ultrafast and variable refresh rates usually found in smaller gaming monitors. Having support for AMD Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR technology, the new ROG gaming monitor synchronizes with systems with Radeon graphics cards to deliver smoother gaming visuals. The new ROG gaming monitor also complies with VESA DisplayHDR 1000 specification with 10-bit image processing and 1000 cd/m2 peak luminance. It has 90% coverage of the DCI-P3 gamut quantifies the display’s colour output advantage.
