ASUS PB287Q: 28-inch 4K UHD Monitor (3840×2160) with 10-bit True Color
ASUS announced a new 28-inch 4K ultra high definition (UHD) monitor (max resolution: 3840×2160 pixels)
with a 1ms GTG response time (GTG means grey to grey) and a 60Hz refresh rate. Like the Samsung’s UD590, ASUS PB287Q exploits a TN (twisted nematic) panel (better quality monitors have an IPS panel, IPS=In-Plane Switching, see here for more details) and is capable to display colors with 10-bit per channel (a channel = R, G, B or A). A 10-bit monitor is able to display up to 230 (1’073’741’824 or 1.07 billion) colors. Regular monitors (8-bit per channel) display only 224 (16’0777’216 or 16 million) colors…
I wonder how a HDR rendering looks like on such monitors?
PB287Q comes with the following connectors:
- one DisplayPort 1.2
- two HDMI 1.4
- one earphone jack
- one audio input (stereo speakers: 2W x 2 stereo RMS)
