Asus today announced the launch of the PB278Q wide quad high definition (WQHD) display. The Asus PB278Q features a 16:9 aspect, LED-backlit, 27” WQHD display that provides 109 pixels per inch (PPI) that results in 2560 x 1440 resolution high quality visuals – that is four times the pixel resolution of standard 720p HDTVs and enables users to view more image detail and do more thanks to an onscreen footprint larger than regular displays.
