For CES 2023 Asus have today announced their forthcoming ROG Strix XG49WCR gaming monitor. It’s a 49″ sized screen with a super ultrawide format and 32:9 aspect ratio. As with other 49″ displays on the market it has a 5120 x 1440 dual QHD resolution, and this model also has a 1800R curvature. The large screen also offers a fairly high 165Hz refresh rate, backed by adaptive-sync for VRR from both NVIDIA and AMD systems. Other specs mentioned include an extended colour gamut with 125% sRGB coverage and a factory calibration with dE <2.

Not happy with their new Asus ROG Strix XG49WCR, this user is looking up Asus’ 42″ PG42UQ now 😉

There’s a decent range of connectivity options available with DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0, USB type-C (with 65W power delivery), USB data ports and even an Ethernet port. The built-in RJ45 port also enables the XG49WCR to serve as a dock for laptops, providing them with network access via a single USB-C connection. The screen includes a Smart KVM switch that enables the user to use a keyboard and mouse to easily switch control between two devices connected to the monitor. When you move your cursor from one side of the screen to the other, the ROG Strix XG49WCR will automatically flip control from one machine to the other through Smart KVM, no manual switching required.
