ASUS Shines With 32-inch ProArt PA32U HDR And 38-inch Designo Curve MX38VQ Monitors
The Designo Curve MX38VQ is a 37.5-inch display with a QHD resolution (3840 x 1600) IPS panel. The frameless display has a 2300R curvature which is “equidistant to the viewer’s eyes, making for an even more immersive viewing experience.” You’ll also find dual 8-watt Harman Kardon speakers, and the MX38VQ’s relatively small base/stand is home to a Qi wireless charging pad.
For those that don’t need as much screen real estate (and need a monitor that is strictly for work-related tasks), ASUS has two smaller (non-curved) options. ASUS describes the ProArt PA32U as the world’s first professional-grade direct-lit LED 4K UHD HDR display. The PA32U has 384 LED zones for a “much richer, nuanced image”. The display has a peak brightness of 1,000cd/m2 and is capable of delivering 99.5 percent of the Adobe RGB and 100 percent of the sRGB color space.
The 32-inch monitor has two Thunderbolt 3 ports that support 40Gbps data transfer speeds, and is capable of serving as a docking display by daisy-chaining multiple Thunderbolt 3 peripherals (including up to two 4K UHD displays) at once.
If you need to go even smaller, there’s the PA27AQ which offers a 27-inch WQHD (2560 x 1440) IPS display with 100 percent sRGB gamut. Like its larger sibling, the PA27AQ also features Thunderbolt 3 connectivity.
Although we don’t have pricing on the PA27AQ, the PA32U is expected to launch in Q3 in the $1,799 to $1,999 pricing range. The MX38VQ, on the other hand, is expected to debut at $1,099 — also during Q3.
