ASUS has introduced the PB287Q True 4K/UHD (ultra-high-definition) monitor, a 28-inch display designed for prosumers and gamers. The ASUS PB287Q features a 16:9 aspect 28-inch white light emitting diode (WLED) display that delivers next-generation 4K/UHD visuals, with resolutions up to 3840 x 2160 and a density of 157 pixels per inch (PPI).

The monitor features connectivity options that include DisplayPort 1.2 for 4K/UHD content support at refresh rates of up to 60Hz, two HDMI ports, with the second HDMI port providing MHL support. Users can also use the MHL connector to view content from their mobile device on the PB287Q while charging the mobile device at the same time.
