We went looking for the 4K monitors that was announced by Asus just before COmputex and were surprised to see that there were actually two (2) models on the show floor — a 31.5-inch which was announced and another 39-inch model.
About a month ago, we recorded an episode for Team Tech Squad and I predicted that Asus should build a 32-inch monitor. I was pleased that the prediction came true.
This 39-inch monitor has a 3840×2160 pixel resolution and a pixel density of 113 (typical pixel density of full HD TVs are between 40 to 50ppi only).
This monitor uses HDMI or Display Port for connection to a PC.
The 31.5-inch monitor also has 3840×2160 pixel resolution and a pixel density of 140ppi. This one also uses 2 HDMI ports and a Display Port. The panel uses an IGZO panel technology for better clarify and brightness yet still energy-efficient.
Asus is said to be putting the retail price of the 31.5-inch model at $4,000 in the US market.
