Computex 2013 saw ASUS reveal more than the RoG’s and Transformers and gadgets. They also put out a visual feast in the form of the 31.5inch 4K PQ321 display. Yes, you read that correctly, a 31.5 inch display with a 3840×2160 Sharp IGZO panel. It is a thing of beauty and something that I would love, love, love to have sitting on my office desk right now.

This 4K display needs, as you can imagine, plenty of power to drive it. It has to have two HDMI ouptuts or a DisplayPort 1.2 output in order to work properly and, using the latter, can go as high as 60Hz. This monitor has four times the resolution of a full HD display and images will be so rich and detailed it may make your head fall off your shoulders. Oh yes, it just might.

ASUS PQ321

This resolution of 3840×2160 is the equivalent of four full HD displays stacked side by side. Not that you’d want to do that, I mean, what if they fell over? So just get one of these instead, then you have one display doing the job of four without the risk of injury to the monitor or your cat…

Some other fantastic facts include the fact that it has a 16:9 aspect ratio, supports 10-bit RGB deep colour, and has a 176 degree wide viewing angle on both the horizontal and the vertical. Your inner geek may also appreciate the fact that it uses Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide rather than traditional amorphous silicon for the active layer of the panel. This, in turn, supports smaller transistors than amorphous silicon so you get smaller pixels and hence the amazing resolution. Pant pant. Got it?

This is an utterly gorgeous monitor with the right level of detail and rich features. It would make someone a very nice Christmas present this year if you happen to be one of those organised types? If you are, can I have one please?
