The HDMI 2.1 port enables gamers to enjoy 4K 120 Hz gameplay on the latest consoles.

Strix XG43UQ has a maximum brightness of 1000 nits – more than three times[1] that of OLED TVs. The monitor has a two-tone black and white finish with an all-white rear cover, and it features Aura Sync lighting technology for synchronized light effects with other Aura-enable components and peripherals.


Supersmooth true‑to‑life visuals


The 43-inch Strix XG43UQ features a 144 Hz, 4K (3840 x 2160) panel and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro technology to deliver super-smooth visuals at up to 144 frames per second. It’s also equipped with ASUS ELMB Sync which enables ELMB and variable refresh rate technologies to work simultaneously to eliminate ghosting and tearing for sharp gaming visuals with high frame rates.


In addition, High Dynamic Range technology with DisplayHDR™ 1000 certification and professional-grade 90% DCI‑P3 colour gamut ensure exceptional contrast and colours for true-to-life visuals.


Next‑gen gaming with HDMI 2.1


Along with offering amazing 4K 120 Hz gaming on the latest consoles via HDMI 2.1, Strix XG43UQ includes an Auto Low-Latency mode to reduce input lag, with less than half the input latency of 4K TVs.
