ASUS is making a smaller, cheaper version of its ROG Swift PG278Q G-Sync display. It doesn't even have a product number or full specs yet, but we can say it will be 1080p and 24'' (as opposed to 2560 x 1440 resolution and 27''), and sports a fast response rate TN panel. And while it will, on the whole, be a downgrade, the refresh rate should be higher. Currently, it's employing a 144Hz refresh rate, but ASUS says it wants the release model to go to 165Hz.
