Acer has its Predator X27 gaming monitor up for pre-order for $1999, and now ASUS has joined the 4K 144Hz fray with pre-orders opening up for their upcoming ROG Swift PG27UQ monitor.
The ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ is a 27-inch 4K monitor with the glorious 144Hz refresh rate, NVIDIA G-Sync technology, and DisplayHDR 1000 certification. ASUS uses the same AU Optronics panel, and is the first monitor of its kind to feature DisplayHDR 1000 certification, which provides true HDR support and full certification in terms of quality.
ASUS will have its native 3840 x 2160 resolution, 144Hz refresh rate, G-Sync technology, 1000cd/m2 peak brightness, LED backlight that dynamically controls 384 zones, and factory color calibration. ASUS also has 99% of the Adobe RGB coverage, and 97% DCI-P3. ASUS uses Quantum Dot like technology, life-like luminance, and cool light effects that are projected onto the desktop itself, all with an adjustable stand.
The new ASUS ROG Strix PG27UQ is $1999 on pre-order, and AUD$4499 in Australia.
