One of the world’s leading gaming monitor brands, ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) has announced that its soon to be launched 43-inch gaming monitor has received the HDMI 2.1 certification by passing all compatibility and validation tests conducted by leading Allion Labs, Inc — an international company specializing in product testing.
With this, the ROG monitor becomes the first monitor to receive this certification.
HDMI 2.1 will give the new monitor a full bandwidth of up to 48 Gbps to support 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) visuals at variable refresh rates of up to 120 Hz. To ensure compatibility with upcoming HDMI 2.1 devices, the gaming monitor went through stringent Fixed Rate Link (FRL) tests, including FRL Electrical, FRL Pixel Decoding and FRL Protocol tests as supervised by Allion Labs.
The ROG monitor is compatible with next generation consoles. The Auto Low Latency in the game console will control the processing mode of the display and prioritize low latency or processing quality depending on the content.
Brian Shih, Vice President of Logo & HW Validation Consulting at Allion Labs commented that ROG is the first partner to provide a HDMI 2.1 gaming monitor for certification. “As a leading test lab in the world, it’s our mission to assure products or services before they are launched. We are thrilled to be part of the success of ROG and this groundbreaking gaming monitor,” he said.
ROG will have an entire series of HDMI 2.1 gaming monitors for the holiday season with the launch of this next-generation gaming console later this year. Besides the 43-inch, there are also 27- and 32- inch models available in the series.
Known for constantly pushing boundaries in terms of innovations, ROG provides gamers with the most advanced display technologies for breathtaking gaming visuals. ROG was the first in the world to offer gamers the ROG Swift PG258Q 240 Hz gaming monitor, ROG Swift PG43UQ 4K 144 Hz Digital Stream Compression (DSC) gaming monitor and ROG Swift 360 Hz gaming monitor.
