CES 2020 - ASUS has just unveiled its new ASUS ROG Swift PG43UQ gaming monitor, rocking a large 43.4-inch VA panel and native 4K resolution with 144Hz refresh rate.


The new ASUS ROG Swift PG43UQ gaming monitor has its 43.4-inch 4K 144Hz panel pumping those pixels and frames out thanks to Display Stream Compression (DSC) technology. DSC enables 4K at 144Hz over a single DisplayPort 1.4 connection, as monitors without DSC running 4K at 4:4:4 HDR can only hit 98Hz -- but the new ASUS ROG Swift PG43UQ has DSC which means we're looking at the full 144Hz glory.

We have Variable Refresh Rate goodness through AMD FreeSync and NVIDIA G-Sync, with G-Sync Compatible certification on the new ASUS ROG Swift PG43UQ. The new ASUS ROG Swift PG43UQ has VESA DisplayHDR 1000 cerfitifcation as well, with local dimming support, and over 90% of the DCI-P3 color gamut with full 10-bit color support.

ASUS will be providing DisplayPort 1.4 and 2 x HDMI 2.0 connectors on the new ASUS ROG Swift PG43UQ, while throwing in 2 x USB 3.0 ports as well. It will ship with a remote control as well, with no pricing just yet while it will drop in 1H 2020.

With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
