It has been a long wait since January when Asus first presented us with this new monitor, and now the time has arrived. The brand new Asus ROG PG278Q ROG Swift 27″ G-Sync 144Hz widescreen gaming monitor will be available from tomorrow.
The monitor is being praised as “Quite possibly the best gaming monitor ever made” and is ideally suited to NVIDIA graphics cards with 3D Vision 2.0 and G-Sync technology. This monitor runs at a staggering 2560×1440 resolution with 144Hz technology and a 1ms response time, and that using the latest in TN technology. The refresh rate can be switched between 60, 120 and 144 Hz via on-screen buttons.
The 27″ monitor only features one display port as input, but it does have a two-port USB 3.0 hub as well. The monitor offers 16million colours and has a brightness of 350cd/m². The viewing angle is 170/160 degrees horizontal/vertical. It’s a non-glossy panel and the bezel is only 6mm. It also allows for tilt, swivel and pivot and of course has vesa mounts (100×100 mm).
Overclockers UK is ready as usual and has it listed with an ETA tomorrow and at a price of £695.99 inc VAT. A hefty pricetag for a monitor, but also a great one. Personally I would have liked more input options on a monitor of this grade.
