When you think of gaming monitors, ASUS would be a brand that lights up like a neon sign in your head. Well, it should come as no surprise that ASUS holds a huge 40% of the gaming monitor market worldwide.

The news is coming from unnamed supply chain sources talking with DigiTimes, with the source estimating that worldwide monitor shipments hit 800,000+ units in 2015. Out of these 800,000+ units, ASUS accounted for 40% of them, with strong sales throughout the United States, Europe and Taiwan.

ASUS makes some incredible gaming monitors, with the ROG Swift PG279Q being the latest example. The ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q rocks a QHD resolution of 2560x1440, but cranks along at 165Hz with NVIDIA's G-Sync technology backing it up. It all started with the original ROG Swift PG278Q, which had the same QHD panel, but 'only' 144Hz. This year, we can expect the new ROG Swift PG348Q - a new 34-inch UltraWide monitor with a 3440x1440 resolution, 100Hz refresh rate, and NVIDIA G-Sync technology, later this year.
