Computex 2014: ASUS has launched ROG Swift PG278Q monitor which was first debuted at CES 2014. The panel features an impressive 1440p resolution with 140 Hz refresh rate and NVIDIA’s G-Sync technology. ROG Swift PG278Q comes with a TN panel which might not attract a lot of people since TN panels are known for poor viewing angles. The monitor is scheduled for release in July at an estimated price of $799.
ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q Features
The first attractive feature of the monitor is its 1440p resolution and the 140 Hz refresh rate. NVIDIA users will specifically love to use this as their primary gaming monitor reason being that it has NVIDIA’s G-Sync technology. G-Sync eliminates tearing issues and offer a much smoother gaming experience. Also the monitor is extremely slim and comes with just 6 mm bezel making it ideal for NVIDIA surround. Another unique feature is the on-the-fly adjustment of the refresh rate by a simple button touch toggling between 60 Hz to 120 Hz to 140 Hz.
ASUS is quoting that ROG Swift PG278Q has only 1 ms response time which is excellent for gaming. The I/O panel includes a single DisplayPort, 2 x USB 3.0 ports and a 5-way joystick for the OSD controls. In terms of design, the monitor has a highly adjustable stand and support for VESA wall mount. ROG Swift PG278Q’s striking design with sharp cuts looks attractive and can compliment your gaming setup quite easily.
Although 3D is becoming obsolete, ASUS has enabled Swift PG278Q with NVIDIA 3D VISION support which is an added advantage for the users. The monitor is set to release in July 2014 at a price of $799.
