ASUS Shines With 32-inch ProArt PA32U HDR And 38-inch Designo Curve MX38VQ Monitors

Computer displays were a hot item this year at CES, and ASUS did its part in advancing the field with three fresh entries. The most stylish of the bunch, however, is the Designo Curve MX38VQ.

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.
