It's CES, so of course ASUS is going to show off a bunch of brand spanking new screens. In addition to the world's first USB Type-C portable monitor, the Taiwanese giant is also launching two stylish Designo MX Series IPS displays. On the left we have the 27-inch MX27UQ, which is basically a 4K refresh of the earlier MX27AQ and shares the same set of features: 100 percent sRGB wide color gamut, TÜV Rheinland certification for low blue light emission plus no flicker, and two 3W speakers powered by Bang & Olufsen's ICEpower. Luckily for us, there is one new feature here: You can stream Bluetooth audio to this monitor's speakers, which is a nice little bit of extra versatility. And for those who care, this model comes in an "Icicle Gold" finish as well.

If you're looking for something totally wacky, though, then check out ASUS' yet-to-be-named 34-inch curved IPS monitor with UWQHD (3440 x 1440) resolution, which should make certain games a whole lot more fun. In fact, speaking of which, we wouldn't be surprised if this is the same panel as the one on ASUS' ROG Swift PG348Q gaming monitor announced at the most recent IFA. While the Designo version may lack certain game-centric features (namely NVIDIA G-SYNC), it does come with a Qi wireless charging pad in its base, and the ICEpower-enhanced stereo speakers are rated at a generous 8W each.

It's obviously still early days for both monitors, so you'll have to stay tuned for the detailed specs, prices and dates.
