Special monitor for X-box and PS5!

At long last, Asus is set to ship its 43-inch ROG Strix XG43UQ display next month.

It's been nearly two years since Asus first announced its ROG Strix XG43UQ, a 43-inch display with a 4K resolution, fast 144Hz refresh rate, and HDMI 2.1 Connectivity . Which checks every boxes on your monitor spec sheet.

Asus says the XG43UQ will finally be available in May . Barring a last minute delay, the XG43UQ figures to be the first HDMI 2.1 display to actually ship out to customers, upgrades over HDMI 2.0 means a massive increase in bandwidth to 48Gbps, up from 18Gbps, or up to 128Gbps with compression. The added bandwidth is capable of supporting up to a 10K resolution at 120Hz. Although 10k gamming seems like a thing of the future but, something futureproof is never bad.

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. 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 or standard 4K TV Panels.

The latest graphics cards from AMD (Radeon RX 6000 series) and Nvidia (GeForce RTX 30 series) as well as the Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 all support HDMI 2.1. You do also need an HDMI 2.1 cable, to take advantage of the specification.

But we must expect a hefty price for these luxury. The rumors says the monitor will go as high Rs 2 lac which twice price of both consoles combined
