With an IPS panel, WQHD resolution and a color representation of Adobe RGB’s of 99%, the new member of ASUS’ ProArt series is here.
We’ve already talked about the ASUS Pro Art Series PA249Q, a professional 24-inch monitor with a 1920 x 1200-pixel resolution, capable of displaying a full 100% of the sRGB colors, and 99% of the AdobeRGB’s. Now, its big brother has arrived, the ASUS PA279Q, a 27-inch monitor.
This model is not just bigger, but also features a 2560 x 1440-pixel resolution, and a density of 109 pp. The color configurations are kept the same as the 24-inch model we previously mentioned, with 10 Bits RGB, 99% of Adobe RGB, 100% of sRGB and 120 % NTSC. It also features an AH-IPS panel con 178º angle of view, a response time of 6 ms, a maximum luminosity of 350 cd/m2 and a dynamic contrast ratio of 100.000.000:1.
Like it’s normal in ProArt monitors, it features three USB 3.0 ports on each side, six in total, one of them with the SuperSpeed Battery Charge function, similar to the one that can be found in the company’s mother boards, which allows for a faster charge of the devices. It also features an SD card reader.
As for the video connectivity, we have DVI-D, HDMI y DisplayPort ports. The ASUS PA279Q is capable of screen splitting, showing video from different sources at the same time, and using the QuickFit Virtual Scale, which puts a grid with different measurements over the picture, very useful for designers. It also features two 3-watt speakers.
The ASUS PA279Q ProArt will be available by the end of July for approximately 869 Euros.
