ASUS PB278Q: a 27-inch LED Monitor with a WQHD Resolution (2560×1440)


ASUS will launch in September a new 27-inch (68.47cm) monitor for gamers who want more than the usual full HD resolution. ASUS PB278Q is the first WQHD monitor with a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels. The display has a response time of 5ms (gray to gray).

You can rotate the monitor and adjust the height:


To enjoy the 2560×1440 resolution, you need a modern graphics card that supports HDMI 1.4 or DisplayPort 1.2 or Dual-link DVI because single DVI or D-SUB is limited to 1920×1080.

    because single DVI or D-SUB is limited to 1920×1080.

    in fact should be , but for example my 1080p flat panel HDTV panasonic Vt20 is able to display maximum resolution of 3200x1800p@60hz using single HDmi 1.4a wire (thx to nvidia downscalling technique). Im totally out specification cleary but it works and graphics are just amazing when playing videogames.

    Dual dvi oR DP1.2 is required for 120 hz screen,very usefull for very high screen resolution and (refresh rate) and 3d movies or videogames.

    completely useless…and wait to see the new 4k for home theater! cmon people with this resolution you can fill a cinema screen not just a pc monitor!

    jd: what counts is the field of view, so if the screen is at 1 meter and is 1 meter large, it is the same than a 20 meter cinema screen that you are looking at 20 meters of distance. And cinema effects are processed at 4000 resolution.

    It’s because you’re not thinking it the right way. A 1920×1080 27 inches monitor IS a waste because you don’t get any gain of workspace. You just get bigger icons. With a monitor like that icons get about the size of a 23 inches monitor but you have a lot more space to put things on. You may also want to leave your second monitor alone in some cases.
