Asus presents three new models of its ROG Strix XG monitor series for gamers at CES 2019: the 43-inch Asus ROG Strix XG438Q, the curved 49-inch ROG Strix XG49VQ and the 32" ROG Strix XG32VQR monitor. All three offer FreeSync 2 HDR and comply with the DisplayHDR 400 or 600 standard.
The 43" Asus ROG Strix XG438Q has a dynamic refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. Its 10-bit VA panel has a resolution of UltraHD 4K (3,840 x 2,160) and meets the VESA DisplayHDR600 specifications, so it uses local dimming for higher contrast and has a peak brightness of 600 nits (cd/m²) - the typical brightness is 450 nits. The professional DCUI-P3 color space is 90% covered. It has three HDMI 2.0 and one DisplayPort interface.

The curved ROG Strix XG49VQ is 49 inches in ultra-wide 32:9 format with a resolution of 3,840 × 1,080, a brightness of 450 nits, displayHDR400 support and up to 144 Hz refresh rate. However, it clearly lags behind the new Samsung CRG9, which is just as big, but has a resolution of 5K (5,120 x 1,440 pixels) and a brightness of 1,000 nits.
The third new release is the curved 32 inch ROG Strix XG32VQR with WQHD resolution (2,560 x 1,440), 144 Hz refresh rate and 94% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space. Like the XG49VQ it will be released at the end of January, the XG438Q will be released later in spring - the prices are not yet known.
