Those looking for a combination of high resolution and high refresh rate have an ever-expanding range of choices on the market. For those interested in the high refresh rate ‘4K’ experience, though, they’ve so far been limited to the ~27″ screen size. The ViewSonic XG320U upsizes the experience, instead offering a 32″ high refresh rate ‘4K’ panel. The styling is similar to other recent models from the ELITE series of gaming monitors, to which this belongs. With extensive use of matte black plastic and a low-profile powder-coated metal (brushed finish) stand base. The top and side bezels are dual stage with a slim panel border that’s flush with the rest of the screen, plus a slender hard plastic outer component. The bottom bezel includes customisable downwards-facing ‘ELITE RGB’ LEDs. The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by a joystick at the centre of the bottom bezel, facing downwards.
The monitor uses a 32″ IPS-type panel with 3840 x 2160 ‘4K’ UHD resolution. Based on available information we expect this to be an AU Optronics AHVA (Advanced Hyper-Viewing Angle) part such as the M320QAN02.3. This includes a light to very light matte anti-glare screen surface, 1000:1 typical static contrast and 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles. A 150Hz (144Hz + mild factory overclock) refresh rate is supported, alongside Adaptive-Sync including AMD FreeSync Premium Pro with an assumed 48 – 144Hz VRR range (plus LFC). True 10-bit colour support is included, whilst a flicker-free Quantum Dot LED backlight solution is employed. The backlight provides a 400 cd/m² typical maximum luminance (600 cd/m² peak for HDR) and a 99% Adobe RGB colour gamut. VESA DisplayHDR 600 support is included, allowing the monitor to put its high luminance and generous colour gamut to good use alongside 10-bit colour processing. This level of VESA DisplayHDR certification also requires at least some degree of local dimming, with 16 dimming zones likely used here.
A 3ms grey to grey response time is specified, alongside a 1ms MPRT response time using the ‘PureXP’ strobe backlight setting – as usual, pay little attention to such figures. An integrated and automatically activated low input lag setting is included. The stand offers tilt, swivel and height (120mm or 4.72 inches) adjustment. Support for 100 x 100mm VESA mounting is also offered, with the stand quickly detachable using a quick-release mechanism. Customisable ELITE RGB lighting is included at the rear, with the other usual ‘ELITE’ additions such as integrated headphone hook and mouse bungee as well. The ports face downwards and include; AC power (internal power converter), HDMI 2.1, HDMI 2.0, DP 1.4, a 3.5mm headphone jack, Micro USB and 3 USB 3.2 ports (plus upstream). Integrated stereo speakers are also included. Further details can be found on this product page (requires translation into English). The latest press release mentions a Q3 2021 release for this model, details on pricing still to come.
