We recently caught wind of the Asus PG329Q which many would think is a new 4K 144Hz with a coveted 32-inch screen size. Asus apparently corrected this with the release of more details, confirming that it is a 1440p variant with a 175Hz maximum refresh rate. It also isn’t a G-sync exclusive model, like many models tagged with the PG naming scheme.
The Asus PG329Q uses a 32-inch IPS panel with a 2560 x 1440 resolution and a 175Hz refresh rate. It’s also one of the new Fast-IPS models, so it also comes with a claimed 1ms boosted response time like many of the recent models we’ve seen. It also features wide DCI-P3 coverage of up to 98% for extensive vibrancy and HDR quality images.
Another exciting aspect of the Asus PG329Q is it’s a DisplayHDR 600 monitor, so it has a backlight that reaches the required 600 cd/m2 peak brightness when HDR is enabled. The backlight type isn’t specified, but it will most probably feature an edge-lit implementation like the Acer XB323Y we mentioned earlier.
The Asus PG329Q still doesn’t have a price and release date, but its been already advertised for the Chinese market. We will share the latest updates on this page as soon as they become available.
