Wacom has officially released the Cintiq Pro 24—a 4K 24-inch version of its popular Cintiq Pro Creative Pen Display for use with both Windows and Mac computers. The 32-inch version remains in-development, with an official release "slated for later this year."

Wacom first announced its Cintiq Pro 24- and 32-inch tablets back in July of last year, but that announcement was more of a teaser than anything else. At the time, Wacom only shared that the pen displays would have "4K edge-to-edge displays" and "maximum color accuracy." Now, with the official release of the Cintiq Pro 24, we have a lot more details to share.

The Cintiq Pro 24—which will be available in both Pen and Pen & Touch models—boasts an IPS UHD display with 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution, 98% Adobe RGB color accuracy (the store page claims 99%), and "a billion colors" (translation: 10-bit color). The tablet also features an etched glass surface to reduce glare and provide a "natural, pen on paper feel," parallax reduction through "optical bonding," close to zero latency, and support for the Pro Pen 2, which features 8,192 levels of sensitivity.

Finally, for those who want to take their Cintiq Pro 24 to the next level, Wacom also introduced the Cintiq Pro Engine. This plug-and-play PC module—which we covered in detail here—turns the Cintiq Pro 24 into a full-blown Windows 10 workstation with Intel processor, up to 32GB of RAM, NVIDIA graphics, and an SSD.

The Cintiq Pro Engine costs at least as much as the Cintiq Pro 24 itself, but the SSD and RAM inside are both upgradable, and its plug-and-play nature means you can swap your entire workstation from display to display as needed. If you're looking for a single, portable solution... it's an intriguing option to be sure

The Cintiq Pro 24 will be available in two variations: the $2,000 Pen Display version will start shipping in March, but if you want the $2,500 Pen & Touch version, you'll have to wait until May. The Cintiq Pro Engine PC module also ships in May.
