ASUS showcases their latest gaming monitor lineup — including the GOD of Monitors, ROG Swift PG27UQ
ASUS invited us over to their office to check out their latest monitor lineup. They showcased their gaming as well as professional monitors to us. The displays were mindblowingly good. Unfortunately we didn’t have the mindblowingly deep pockets to afford them.
We aren’t gonna lie, ASUS’ gaming monitors are far from affordable. But today they highlighted their considerations to make the stands look pretty yet functional. Most of their gaming monitors feature rotate, swivel and tilt adjustments for a more ergonomic viewing experience. The stands are also designed to keep the massive ROG Swift monitors stable even when the surface they are on are bashed. Gamers with unbridled rage, please do check out these monitors.
Aside from the higher end ROG Swift monitors, they also offer the more affordable ASUS VG series of monitors for FreeSync gamers on a budget. The budget gaming ASUS VG245H, VG255H and VG275Q monitors,are 24″, 24.5″ and 27″ panels, respectively. These monitors range from RM659 to RM1209, very reasonable prices for 75 Hz FreeSync panels. ASUS also offer a variety of FreeSync-ready monitors along its pricier ROG Swift monitors.
Aside from gaming monitors, there were the professional/consumer lineup too. ASUS showcased their RM5279 ProArt PA329Q, a Quantum Dot professional monitor with 100% Rec.709, 100% sRGB, 99.5% Adobe RGB, 90% DCI-P3 and Rec. 2020 color spaces for professionals who work with color-sensitive work. For gamers, there is a similar panel, but souped up for gamers.
It’s the individually calibrated ROG Swift PG27UQ. Yep, each unit comes with its own color calibration test report. But that’s not all. It is VESA-certified DisplayHDR 1000 compliant, which means the monitor has a peak brightness of 1000-nits to display a wider range of colors. This is enabled by the Quantum Dot backlighting which is divided into 384 zones to deliver deeper blacks and truer whites. With full support for 4K visuals and 144 Hz refresh rate, the ROG Swift PG27UQ will give even the highest-end graphics card of today a real workout. Couple that with G-SYNC HDR and you get the best fluid visuals you can buy.The price? Even we don’t know yet. But we do have a unit with us, so stay tuned for the review!
Pokdepinion: The blacks on the ROG Swift PG27UQ is just godly. No wonder SuperDaddy has been droning about it since he came back from Computex 2018!
