Share this content

As well as their massive 55″ gaming display, ASRock have showcased their forthcoming PG32UMF monitor at Computex this week. A more sensible monitor size, the ASRock PG32UMF is 31.5″ and offers a 3840 x 2160 “4K” resolution, a 144Hz refresh rate and a decent 1152-zone Mini LED backlight. It’s still being marketed as a gaming monitor, and should offer some decent capabilities for HDR content consumption.

ASRock PG32UMF Specs

The screen is 31.5″ in size with a flat format and 16:9 aspect ratio. It’s based on an IPS-type panel with a 3840 x 2160 “4K” resolution. This offers a 600 nits typical brightness, but an HDR peak brightness of >1400 nits. The screen is expected to be certified under the VESA DisplayHDR 1400 scheme. It also includes a wide colour gamut with 97% DCI-P3 coverage quoted, along with 10-bit colour depth support. The HDR capabilities are enhanced by the use of a high-end 1152-zone Mini LED backlight, for excellent local dimming capabilities.

From a gaming point of view the screen also has a 144Hz refresh rate, and supported adaptive-sync for VRR from compatible AMD and NVIDIA systems. This will include certification under the AMD ‘FreeSync Premium’ scheme apparently. A 1ms MPRT spec is also listed, implying perhaps a strobing blur reduction backlight mode will be available, or perhaps just an unrealistic manufacturer spec.

Connectivity options

The screen will include DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.1 (capabilities not listed) and USB type-C (with DP Alt mode and 90W power delivery) options. 4 USB data ports will also be provided.

Availability and pricing

This is not confirmed at the moment. More details on pricing, release dates and other specs when we get them
