Asus to release 31.5-inch 4K monitor in the US next month

ASUS has just announced that it is launching a new 4K monitor in the US the market. Known as the PQ321, this 31.5 inch display features a 3840 x 2160 resolution with 16:9 aspect ratio, equivalent to four full HD 1920 X 1080 displays stacked side-by-side. Boasting a 140 ppi screen, Asus' upcoming monitor should be able to meet the demands of even the most dedicated videophiles once it becomes available next month. 

The PQ321 offers 176 degree viewing angles on both the vertical and horizontal planes, so users will be able to see the incredibly high resolution display so matter where they are sitting. In addition, the display includes IGZO technology, which helps keep its energy usage to a minimum.

This beauty is wall-mountable and only 35mm thick at its deepest point, which actually makes it the thinnest UHD monitor available. Of course, there aren't a ton of 4K options for computer displays on the market yet, so it doesn't exactly have a lot of competition in that regard.

Asus will be showing the PQ321 and a 39-inch model at Computex next week. The company kept pricing information under wraps, but with both monitors showing up at the popular trade show, and a retail launch for the smaller unit by the end of next month, it won't be long until we have the full details.
