Asus Focuses on Colour at Computex

Asus has taken the stage at Computex 2015 to reveal several upcoming products, including a monitor with a great emphasis on colour.

The Zen AiO Series is a range of new AIO PCs, made up of the Z240IC (23.8″) and Z220IC (21.5″). Each is made with an aluminium unibody design, tapering to 6mm thick at the edges.

The PCs feature an Intel Realsense 3D depth camera, which can be used for motion sensing and face recognition. They are also built with six total speakers for 16W of sound output.

Both new units use quad-core Intel Broadwell chips, up to Core i7, with up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM and PCIe Gen 3 SSD storage. They feature Nvidia Geforce GTX 960 GPUs with 4GB of VRAM, as well as USB 3.1-C connectors.

The ProArt PA329Q is Asus’ new 32″ UltraHD monitor, covering 100% of Adobe RGB. It is factory-calibrated, with a Delta E <2, and supports the BT.2020 and DCI-P3 colour spaces (coverage was not listed).

10-bit colour can be displayed on the screen, which uses an IPS panel with 178° viewing angles and a 60Hz refresh rate. The monitor also supports a 16-bit internal lookup table and features Asus’ ProArt Calibration Technology, which enables uniformity compensation. The technology controls the monitor’s hardware directly, saving colour parameters on the display’s own ICs, rather than in the PC.

Several Republic of Gamers products were also shown off. Many of these were existing units, but there were some new ones as well – including several G-Sync items.

The first G-Sync model was unnamed: it is a curved 34″ unit, with 3440 x 1440 resolution (21:9) and features DisplayPort and HDMI inputs. A 27″ display was also revealed: the PG279Q. This monitor has 2560 x 1440 resolution and uses an IPS panel, with 178° viewing angles. Refresh rate is 144Hz, and DisplayPort and HDMI inputs are featured again.

Asus E1Z DLP projectorA new series of gaming notebooks is the G751JT/JY range. Each has Nvidia’s G-Sync and is powered by Intel Core i7 processors, with graphics up to GTX 980M GPUs. Cooling is enabled through a combination of dual fans and rear thermal vents, directing heat and noise away from the user.

Finally was a miniature projector – not part of ROG line – called the E1Z. Asus claims that it the first LED projector that can show content stored on an Android phone via a micro-USB connection. A rechargeable battery is built in, and the projector can double as a 6,000mAh power bank for other mobile devices.

The E1Z is a DLP model covering 100% of the NTSC colour gamut and 100% of the RGB spectrum.

Asus has not shared pricing or availability for any of its new products yet, but we will let you know when this information is available.
