Asus had already announced the ProArt Display PA32UCG as the first monitor with DisplayHDR 1400 support at IFA 2019 - after its market launch was postponed several times (originally planned for early 2020), it is now finally available at first online retailers at prices starting at around 5,500 euros.
Asus ProArt Display PA32UCG
The Asus ProArt Display PA32UCG is all about professional users: it uses a 32" IPS panel with an UltraHD resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels, a true 10-bit color depth, and supports various HDR standards such as DisplayHDR 1400, Dolby Vision, HDR-10, and HLG by means of its 1,152 different mini-LED lighting zones (aka local dimming) and the achieved contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 with a peak brightness of 1,600 nits.
Since it can get hot at high brightness, it has active cooling. In addition, it can play dynamic frame rates from 48 up to 120 Hz via Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) (FreeSync Premium Pro is also supported) and is factory color calibrated with a Delta E <1.
The color space coverage of the Asus ProArt Display PA32UCG is also very good - so the sRGB color space is supported to 100%, the Adobe RGB to 99.50%, the DCI-P3 to 97% and the professional new Rec.2020 color space to 89%.

The interface selection is very extensive with two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports (1 x In, 1 x Out for series connection via Thunderbolt 3), two HDMI 2.0 interfaces, one HDMI 2.1 port and one USB 3.1 hub. For better ergonomics, it can be tilted 20° backwards or 5° forwards - blue light reduction and flicker-free features are also on board.
