Introduction

 

Until now, the highest-end 4K gaming monitor that existed had a 60Hz refresh rate and most hardcore gamers wouldn't touch them. This is why the 1440p 144/165Hz monitors were so popular amongst high-end graphics card owners as they provided a great resolution (that was higher than 1080p) but drove the refresh rate up past 120Hz and into 144-165Hz.

 

 

NVIDIA then started teasing that they had 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync monitors on the way and ASUS was one of the first to unveil its new ROG Swift PG27UQ, a 27-inch 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitor. We're not talking about any old TN panel, but ASUS has used a Quantum Dot IPS panel which rocks DCI-P3 color gamut, beautiful colors, dark blacks, and an image that pops at all times.

 

ASUS has been at the bleeding edge of gaming displays under their ROG Swift gaming brand, but the new PG27UQ takes things to a new level. We have a native 3840x2160 resolution pumping 4K out at up to 144Hz which is a world's first. Until now, that was a pipe dream... here it is, now a reality. You can't drive 4K 144FPS in all games even with a new GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, but there are some games that you can and holy hell are they glorious.

 

 

 

Availability & Price

 

The ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ debuted at $1999 and can now be found on Amazon for under $1800, where at the time of writing it had dropped to $1796, which is not bad considering the kind of beast you get here. Gaming at 4K 144Hz with HDR and G-Sync isn't cheap, as you'll want to match it with the best graphics card you can buy, and that would be NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
