ASUS announces ROG Strix 4K HDMI 2.1 gaming monitor with up to 160Hz refresh rate

ASUS has introduced its new XG32UQ monitor from its STRIX series. It’s a 32-inch display with 4k resolution and comes with support for HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4 standards. The monitor has a refresh rate of 120 Hz out of the box, but can be overclocked to a maximum of 160 Hz.


The ASUS XG32UQ features a fast IPS panel with a response time of 1ms. It also has DisplayHDR 600 certification and achieves a peak brightness of 450 nits which is further increased to 600 nits in HDR mode. It is also certified for AMD FreeSync Premium Pro and is also compatible with G-Sync.

ROG Strix XG32UQ is a 32-inch 4K UHD IPS professional gaming monitor designed for 160Hz (OC) gaming. It features the latest HDMI® 2.1 standard to support up to native 4K 120Hz visuals on the latest consoles without subsampling, and Display Stream Compression (DSC) technology and NVIDIA® G-SYNC® Compatible deliver super-smooth experiences on PCs . A 96% DCI P3 color gamut and DisplayHDR™ 600 certification round out the package, delivering exceptional colors for incredibly immersive, lifelike gaming.”

One thing missing is the ease of connectivity. We don’t see a USB Type-C connector and there doesn’t seem to be any KVM functionality. These features are typically typical of more expensive monitors like this one. For connectivity, it does have a USB Gen1 (5 Gbps) Type-B connector and Gen 1 Type-A.

However, the monitor is packed with gaming features such as the Game Plus or the extreme motion blur.

As of yet, ASUS has not shared any pricing information, nor does it appear to be a release date.
