Computer hardware company Asus is launching the first HDI 2.1 gaming monitor next month. According to TechPowerUp, the XG43UQ is going to be available for purchase in May.
One of the upgrades over HDMI 2.0 is its massive increase in bandwidth to 48Gbps, or up to 128Gbps with compression. The added bandwidth can support up to a 10K resolution at 120Hz with compression.
“It also means console gamers, on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, can get in on the gaming monitor fun rather than having to rely on TVs,” writes Paul Lilly. “With HDMI 2.1 support the latest consoles can deliver 4K at 120Hz in supported games, something they can’t do with standard HDMI 2.0 panels.”
The company has not said how much the product costs at this time. According to PC Gamer, it’s been available to preorder at OverclockersUK for £1,349 ($1,873) since March.
