Neoscore 97%NEX score 81%

Product Overview

ASUS ProArt PA32UCG is a 32-inch flagship 4K professional monitor with Mini-LED backlighting that provides 1152-zone local dimming. With quantum dot technology, PA32UCG can display a wide color gamut with DCI-P3, Adobe RGB, sRGB, Rec 709 and Rec 2020 color space support.
The PA32UCG provides 1600 nits peak brightness and 1000 nits sustained full-screen brightness. It supports multiple HDR formats, including Dolby Vision, HLG and HDR10. Thanks to variable refresh rate from 48 to 120Hz, the PA32UCG is perfect for game developers.
A more affordable variant of the PA32UCG is the PA32UC, which shares much of the design and feature set with the flagship but has a 384-zone Mini-LED setup and correspondingly narrower color gamut.
The PA32UCG-K comes with an X-Rite colorimeter.
