"The PB287Q is a brand-new 28” 4K/UHD monitor from ASUS. With a native resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, PB287Q displays four times (4X) as many pixels as existing the Full HD standard - that’s over 8-million pixels for truly astonishing detail. The ASUS PB287Q is also easy on the eyes for both graphics and text with impressive scrolling and 1ms response times.
ASUS has added some exclusive technologies to PB287Q, including updating Splendid Plus to eliminate only the blue component of light from the panel backlight. This reduces eyestrain and ASUS Flicker-free technology ensures razor-sharp and stable images at all times.
PB287Q features extensive connectivity, including HDMI and HDMI/MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) connectors and native DisplayPort for true 4K/UHD content support. The new display also has an attractive ergonomic design with a slim profile and a full range of swivel, tilt, pivot and height adjustments to guarantee viewer comfort."

Refresh rate?

Since they didn't say, I'm gonna guess 30 hz.

Display port 1.2 graphic cards should be capable of driving it a 60hz now:

60 hz at 1920x1080, sure. But it doesn't say if it will support that at 3840x2160.

This is just a copy of the press release, not a useful article. It doesn't even say what kind of panel it uses.

I'm fairly certain that at 28" there is color variation between TN pixels from standard viewing distance.

Which leads me to wonder why must they insist on TN? 1ms response times require overdriving the pixels, any implimentation of which introduces either ghosting or dark ghosting from compensation. Regardless, such artifacts are just as bad in respect to experence as the performing the same overdrive on IPS/VA panels. That just makes it baffeling why they stick to TN (Ignoring the profit margin between panel types).

I shall echo everyone one else... what's the refresh?!

Lord Binky, seriously 1ms with 4K?? Well we can dream.

Definitely left out hz and ms refresh... if it is a gaming if the can keep with 5ms for the early 4K I would be happy. I hope for at least 120hz so 3D can be optional and or fast game rates.

Where's the G-sych?! (the new beef)

Inb4 tn panel@30hz priced at 899 in australia, i will pass on this one. Now if it was 60hz panel then i might consider it and if they made an IPS version I would be sold.

Dell has on for $699

They're all 30hz. If you expect 60hz anytime soon let alone for that price keep dreaming :( if it wasn't the case my taxes would have a home :p instead I think it's tv and ps4 time
