ASUS has launched a slew of new devices at Computex 2019, Taipei in Taiwan. Amongst them are the new ROG gaming laptop displays which are touted to have groundbreaking speed, precision, and depth of detail that define the future of gaming machines. The announced ROG gaming displays include a 17.3-inch 240Hz laptop display, a 15.6-inch 4K 120Hz display, and a 4K AMOLED UHD high-res display.

The most talked about is the 17.3-inch 240Hz display which will be available as an option for the ASUS Strix SCAR III and the ASUS Hero III laptops. The display will have a 3ms response rate and 1080p full HD IPS resolution. The panel is equipped with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 graphics and ROG Boost to make sure triple-digit frame rates ideal for the silky smooth gaming experience.

Next up is the 4K 120Hz display with the response time at 3ms. According to ASUS, the new panel is capable of 100 percent Adobe RGB color space, broader than the conventional sRGB. The display will be available as a 15.6-inch size panel for the Zephyrus S GX502 ultra-slim gaming laptop.

The 4K 120Hz display will also have NVIDIA GSync technology and 400-nit backlight to fight the daylight brightness. The panel will also be factory calibrated and PANTONE validated for color accuracy intended for professionals as well as content creators. ASUS has partnered with AUO to build the 4K 120Hz panels.

The third display is the 4K UHD AMOLED display with HDR support. It is, however, not clear in which laptops the new panel will find its place, but it is being currently tested on Zephyrus S test machine. This particular display comes with static 60Hz refresh rates but at 1ms response time.

The 4K UHD AMOLED display offers 80,000:1 contrast ratio ensuring deep rich visibility of blacks. It will further cover 100 percent DCI-P3 color space that is generally used in movies production for video editing. Also, with eight bits per channels plus two more via dithering, the display will create a billion individual hues.

Last but not least, the 4K UHD AMOLED display is lightweight and even the combination of glass and AMOLED makes it just slightly heavier than the matte TFT counterpart.

Details about the pricing are still shrouded in mystery. However, many of the ROG gaming laptops are on sale or on preorder right from today at Computex 2019.
