Wacom Cintiq 27QHD and 27QHD Touch slates arrive this month

Joining its new Cintiq Companion 2 Windows 8 tablet are a couple other Cintiq offerings from Wacom, the 27QHD and the 27QHD Touch. This is the company’s newest flagship slate, and it boasts a 27-inch edge-to-edge display with 1.07 billion colors and 97-percent Adobe color gamut coverage, Wacom’s Color Manager, and multi-touch support (the latter being for the touch model in particular, obviously). As with the Companion 2, the accompanying pen offers 2,048 pressure sensitivity levels, and supports different pen nibs including ones that are felt.

The display has a 2560 x 1440 resolution and extra-wide viewing angles, the Radial Menu, and the hand-held ExpressKey Remote for easy shortcut access. The 27QHD supports up to five ExpressKey Remotes at once. There’s both an integrated stand and other optional stands for different needs.

This model is set to replace Wacom’s Cintiq 24HD model, and is joined by the company’s 13HD and 22HD offerings. Particulars about the hardware it is running haven’t yet been detailed.

Both models will be available starting in the middle of this month, with the Cintiq 27QHD being priced at £1799.99 and the Cintiq 27QHD Touch being priced at £2099.99. Be sure to check out our CES 2015 Hub for more products debuting this week!
