The transition from Full HD 1080p to 4K Ultra HD is moving along at a steady pace. Those interested in being an early adopter already have several models to choose from; add one more to the pile. Asus today introduced the PB287Q, a 28-inch monitor with a 4K Ultra HD (3840×2160) resolution and fast 1ms refresh rate. According to Asus, the PB287Q is intended for prosumers and gamers.

You can coax a 60Hz refresh rate out of the PB287Q, provided you use DisplayPort 1.2. If you’re fine with 30Hz, you can hook it up using either of the two HDMI ports, the second one of which provides MHL support to charge your mobile device and/or display mobile content on the monitor.

The monitor itself is slim and ergonomic with a stand that provides swivel, title, pivot, and height adjustments. It’s also VESA mount compatible in case you’d rather plop it on your wall.

Other features include a true 10-bit panel, 100,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, 170 degree (H) / 160 degree (V) viewing angles, 3.5mm earphone output, 3.5mm audio input, Picture-in-Picture (PiP) support, Picture-by-Picture (PbP) support, and several proprietary Asus technologies.

The Asus PB287Q will be available around the middle of June for $649 MSRP.
