Wacom’s latest tablet is not just a drawing surface, it can be a full-blown PC as well. The Wacom Cintiq 24 Pro features a 4K display, Wacom pen support and a new expansion option with the Cintiq Pro Engine.
Available in both Pen and Pen&Touch models, the Cintiq 24 Pro 4K display has a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, 98% Adobe RGB color accuracy and 10-bit colour support. Wacom aims to both reduce glare and emulate “natural, pen on paper feel” with the etched glass surface. It also supports the Pro Pen 2, which offers 8,192 levels of sensitivity on screen. It works for both Windows and macOS machines either through the USB Type-C port, HDMI or DisplayPort.
As an add-on to the Cintiq 24 Pro, Wacom is introducing the Cintiq Pro Engine. The dockable module is a full Windows PC that slots into the rear of the Cintiq 24 Pro and turns the display to a full standalone PC.
There will be two modules on offer; one is the Cintiq Pro Engine i5 with the Intel Core i5 quad-core processor, NVIDIA Quadro P3200 graphics card with 6GB of dedicated GDDR5 RAM, 256GB SSD, 16GB of RAM as well as Bluetooth/Wifi connectivity.
The other module is the Cintiq Pro Engine Xeon with an Intel Xeon processor, the same NVIDIA Quadro P3200, 32GB of RAM, 512GB of SSD storage and the same connectivity options as the previous module.
Wacom says that the Cintiq 24 Pro Pen model will be available from March onward for US$ 1,999.95 (RM 7,848) with the Pen&Touch version shipping from May for US$ 2,499.95 (RM 9,811). No prices have been released for the Cintiq Pro Engine modules. Wacom also said that there will be a 32-inch version of the display coming in the near future.
