Asus new 32" 4K monitor ProArt PA32UCG from Asus is the first display that supports the new VESA DisplayHDR 1400 standard and has other features that make it interesting for professional work. It achieves a peak brightness of 1,600 nits and has 1,152 different lighting zones (aka Local Dimming) and a contrast of 1,000,000:1 using a mini LED backlight.
The Asus ProArt Display PA32UCG uses an IPS panel with true 10-bit colour depth, displays various HDR standards such as Dolby Vision, HDR-10 and HLG and can reproduce dynamic frame rates from 48 to 120 Hz via Variable Refresh Rate (VRR). It is factory calibrated and has a Delta E <1 and is certified for UltraHD premium.
According to the new DisplayHDR 1400 specification, the PA32UCG can briefly display a brightness of up to 1,400 nits - over a period of 30 minutes it must reach at least 900 nits on the entire screen. In addition, the black level in the corners of the display must not exceed 0.02 nits. The DCI-P3 color space must be at least 95 % covered.

Asus itself even speaks - confusingly - of a (non-existent) HDR 1600 standard which the PA32UCG meets and thus even exceeds the requirements of the DisplayHDR 1400 standard - so it should be able to display up to 1,600 nits at ten percent white and otherwise black screen area and 1,000 nits permanently on the entire screen. And it fully supports the DCI-P3 color space to 100%. However, its high brightness and the associated waste heat force Asus to use active cooling - how loud this is has to be proven in practice.
The interface selection is very extensive with two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports (1 x In, 1 x Out), three HDMI 2.0b and one DisplayPort. The Asus ProArt Display PA32UCG is expected to be launched in the fourth quarter - the price is not yet known.
