“The PG42UQ, like the 48-inch model, has a 4K (3840 x 2160) display, an impressive 1,000,000 to 1 contrast ratio, a lightning-fast 0.1ms response time, a 120Hz refresh rate, 10-bit color with 98 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 color space, and HDR10 support. In terms of ports, both sizes include two HDMI 2.1 ports, two HDMI 2.0 ports, one DisplayPort jack, audio inputs, and a USB hub.

Additionally, Asus says that its displays are anti-glare and covered with a micro-texture coating to ensure you see the best color accuracy.”

This looks like the sweet spot for a nerd dream gaming monitor.

Any rough guess on a price? Release date?

Following for interest. Hopefully it won't be massively overpriced because ROG and won't have the quirks that the Gigabyte 48" had.

Isn't LG also coming out with a 42" C series OLED? That should be more affordable?

The ASUS models have a large heatsink as well and are advertising 900 NITS of HDR (3% window) which may be nice. Time will tell, the Gigabyte OLED promised the moon and was a bust compared to the LG C1 models.

Boo on the antiglare coating. DP is welcome though. Stand as always looks like crap.

Highly unlikely.

Yup. Acer has already given the price of their 48" OLED.

Now expect the Asus ROG version of that to cost the same if not more. As for a 42" version? Don't expect it to be much cheaper, at least $2000.

At that price the only people getting these will be people that desperately need DisplayPort, or people that unfortunately don't know know about the LG TVs.

If you're going to overpay around 2x the price over an OLED TV just for Displayport, then you could've just bought the TV and used the leftover money on an HDMI 2.1 GPU. Unless it's for a laptop connection I guess.

Most GPUs only have one HDMI 2.1 port. So if you want to do a triple screen setup or something you would need to use DisplayPort. You could just use DisplayPort to HDMI adapters too, but you wouldn't get GSYNC with the conversion.
