Curved monitor with unusual equipment
ASRock’s latest gaming monitor has an unexpected feature: In addition to a curved screen with WQHD resolution and 165 Hz, the PG34WQ15R2B is equipped with an integrated WLAN antenna.
ASRock’s Phantom series includes the two models PG34WQ15R2B and PG27FF1A. The former is the top model with 34 incheswhose VA panel has a radius of 1.5 meters curved is and with 3,840 x 1,440 pixels (WQHD) dissolves. As a high-end gaming monitor, it achieves a refresh rate of 165 Hertz and one millisecond response time (MPRT). The VESA DisplayHDR 400 standard, 91 percent DCI-P3 and 115 percent sRGB color space coverage as well as AMD FreeSync promise color-rich and interference-free image quality.
The PG34WQ15R2B causes a special stir with one integrated WLAN antenna. Although this still requires a WLAN module in the PC, it should bring an increased performance gain of 7 dBi. The signal on the monitor is also stronger than if the antennas were placed on the mainboard, i.e. under the desk.
Additional features include two speakers and connections for DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0 and headphones. The second model in the bunch, the PG27FF1A, turns out to be much simpler with a flat 27-inch IPS panel and Full HD resolution, but at least 165 Hz and 1 ms MPRT. A WLAN antenna is also not included here, but this monitor is a lot cheaper:
The US dealer Newegg sells the ASRock PG34WQ15R2B for $430, the 27-inch Full HD variant PG27FF1A costs $190. Both models are not yet available in Germany.
