ASRock makes a good variety of merchandise, together with motherboards and graphics playing cards, however not like a few of its rivals it has but to launch any gaming displays (and even non-gaming shows). It’s an space that ASUS, Gigabyte, and MSI all compete in, however not ASRock. It seems to be like that is going to vary very quickly, although, with a line of presumed Phantom Gaming displays exhibiting up within the Korea Communications Commission (KCC) database.
The KCC is modeled after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) within the United States and serves the identical basic objective, however for South Korea. So any entries within the KCC database could be seen as extra dependable than a random leak or rumor.
So what are we ? As noticed by Twitter person @momomo_us, ASRock submitted a handful of fashions to the KCC and likewise a few different companies, together with the Digital Content Protection (DCP) web site and the DisplayPort group’s web site.
The obvious flagship of the bunch is the PG34WQ15R, which sports activities a 34-inch curved VA panel with a 3440×1440 decision. This is a FreeSync Premium monitor with a refresh price of 48-165Hz over DisplayPort, and 48-100Hz over HDMI. That suggests it is most likely not an HDMI 2.1 mannequin, although that might be an even bigger deal if Acer was taking goal at console players. That’s only a guess anyway.
Base specs additionally exist for the PG27FF. This one is a 27-inch show rocking an IPS panel with a 1920×1080 decision and 48-165Hz refresh over each DisplayPort and HDMI. It’s listed as a FreeSync Premium monitor as properly.
It seems there are numerous iterations of this one, together with the PG27F15R, PG27FF1A, and PG27F15R2A. It’s not clear how all of them differ, although.
Finally, there are references to a PG42U, PG32QF, and PG27Q15R. Going by the mannequin designations, the PG42U might be a 42-inch show with a 4K decision, the PG32QF is probably going a 32-inch monitor with a 1440p (QHD) decision, and the PG27Q15R might be a 27-inch 1440p show. None of that’s confirmed, we’re simply extrapolating from the mannequin numbers.
Speaking of, the mannequin numbers may create some confusion available in the market in the event that they stand. That’s as a result of ASUS additionally makes use of “PG” in a number of of its displays, just like the PG27UQ we reviewed a couple of years in the past. It additionally is sensible from ASRock’s perspective, although, as we suspect these will fall underneath its Phantom Gaming branding.
