Asus is has announced a trio of HDMI 2.1 enabled gaming monitors that’ll be perfect for the latest consoles.

Starting with the biggest one, the ROG Swift XG43UQ is a 43-inch 4K gaming monitor with a VA panel and a 144Hz refresh rate. This monitor offers up the brightest picture of the bunch with a 1000-nit peak brightness and covers 90% DCI-P3 of the color gamut.

Best of all, the ROG Swift XG43UQ has two HDMI 2.1 ports so you’ll be able to connect both your Xbox Series X and PS5 to this display. You’ll also find one DisplayPort 1.4 port with Display Stream Compression (DSC), which essentially allows this monitor to push a 144Hz experience at 4K without running into chroma-subsampling or any drop in visual quality.

The Asus ROG Swift XG43UQ also incorporates ELMB Sync to eliminate smearing and motion blur, which results in sharper looking animation for more fluid and responsive gameplay.

Asus claims the ROG Swift PG32UQ is the first 32-inch gaming monitor with HDMI 2.1 to take advantage of its 4K IPS panel with a 144Hz refresh rate. Better yet it has two HDMI 2.1 ports plus one DisplayPort 1.4 port with DSC.

The Asus ROG Swift PG32UQ  also features a fantastically bright and vibrant panel that displays 98% DCI-P3 color space and hits a 600-nit peak brightness. It also comes with G-Sync and Reflex Latency Analyzer modules, so you get real hardware-based G-Sync and you can measure how long a gaming mouse click takes to translate to on-screen action.
