ASUS' 43" gaming monitor is coming out next month (May 2021) according to a press release issued today. The monitor support HDMI 2.1 and its features, including ALLM and HDMI Forum VRR. It also supports Freesync 2 Premium (no word on G-SYNC compatibility yet) and can do VRR with strobing using ELMB. The monitor has local dimming for HDR and supports VESA DisplayHDR 1000, but it is edgelit. 4K 144 Hz is supported over a single DisplayPort 1.4 connection using DSC if you have at least a NVIDIA RTX 20 series or AMD RX 5700 video card. No word yet on pricing.

Hard to get excited about an edge lit monitor promising local dimming. At this size you're competing heavily with the LG OLEDs and this is going to be worse than that in everything except brightness and maybe longevity. But, this is likely to be more about as much more than the CX as a CX + Extended Warranty package would be, so really all this is going to have going for it is being slightly smaller and being brighter.

Whats the difference between this monitor and the PG43UQ?
The XG has HDMI 2.1 and Freesync Premium Pro while the PG has HDMI 2.0 and G-SYNC Compatible. The XG also supports DSC over DisplayPort while the PG does not.
