Asus has gone to the SIGGRAPH conference this year to put its creator-focused hardware in full view. It consists of PCs such as the ZenBook Pro Duo and the new StudioBook series. However, the star of this show may be the new ProArt display, the world's first to offer 1200 nits of brightness and mini-LED backlighting in a 4K HDR 32-inch panel.

Asus has gone to SIGGRAPH this year with a range of products directed at creative professionals. Some, such as the innovative NVIDIA RTX Studio-grade ZenBook Pro Duo, have been debuted previously. The Taiwanese OEM also brought its StudioBook W700 with its Quadro RTX 3000 to this event.

It was accompanied this time by its 15-inch counterpart, the StudioBook W500. It is equipped with a 4K UHD display, the Intel Core i7-9750H chipset and as much as 32GB of DDR4-2666 RAM. Unlike the W700, it packs the Quadro RTX 5000 GPU.

Asus also showed its ProArt display off at SIGGRAPH 2019. It is the first monitor in the world to feature 1200-nit brightness and mini-LED backlighting in a 4K HDR 32-inch quantum-dot form factor. This monitor (the PA32UCX) also supports over 1152 zones of local dimming, as well as multiple HDR formats. They range from Dolby Vision to HLG.

The PA32UCX also offers true 10-bit color, which, as Asus claims, delivers colors from the the deepest blacks to the most luminescent whites. It adheres to a range of color-spaces, including the lesser-spotted Rec. 709 and Rec. 2020 in addition to the more familiar DCI-P3, sRGB, and Adobe RGB.

The Asus ProArt PA32UCX's connectivity should also be an aid to any design professional. It packs 2 Thunderbolt 3 ports, as well as 1 DisplayPort and 3 HDMI 2.0 ports.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
