ASUS continues its push into the monitor market with a pair of new models debuting at CES 2013. First up is the VG248QE, a 24-in 1080p monitor that runs at a refresh rate of 144 Hz and supports NVIDIA's 3D Vision 2 and a 1ms gray-to-gray response time. These are TN panels so you might be surprised to see they are going to priced quite reasonably in the $399 range. The display also includes a new ASUS technology called GamePlus that embeds crosshairs for games into the OSD on the monitor to offer additional options in troublesome 3D modes.
The second new monitor we saw was the MX299Q, a 2560x1080 monitor in the exciting new 21:9 form factor. These allow developers, traders or just every day users to have two "full screen" applications open at the same time without the need for multiple displays. The MX299Q will also include Bang & Olufsen powered speakers.
