The ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ is the highest-end gaming monitor on the market, packed with technical prowess that until it arrived on the market, was not available in any form. 4K 120Hz has been a pipe dream of gamers and enthusiasts for so many years, but now it's finally here.
For $2000 you're going to want all of the very best monitor technology available, with the 27-inch panel offering its native 3840x2160 resolution and that super insane 144Hz refresh rate. It's really a 120Hz panel with overclocking allowing it to be pushed up to 144Hz, with NVIDIA's G-Sync technology splashed on top, sitting alongside HDR (DisplayHDR 1000 to be exact).
ASUS uses 384-zone direct LED backlighting on the ROG Swift PG27UQ with each of the LEDs dynamically controlled across the 384 zones. This means you'll get beautifully bright scenes when the time is right, but more natural-looking dark scenes that you wouldn't see on another monitor.
4K 144Hz + HDR Technology
This isn't just useful for gaming, but for 4K HDR content it'll blow your mind. I watched a bunch of HDR movies on the ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ and they were glorious. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was particularly amazing, with the HDR version looking out of this world on the ROG Swift PG27UQ.
Why is this useful? Well, ASUS has provided an HDMI port on the monitor which lets you plug in a 4K HDR capable console like the Xbox One S or Xbox One X, so you can get 4K HDR Blu-ray movies and TV series and watch them back like you've never seen before.
ASUS wouldn't be ASUS if they didn't use one of the best panels available, with an IPS panel packing quantum dot technology used on the ROG Swift PG27UQ. We have amazing color accuracy and cinema standard DCI-P3 color gamut that provides an even larger spectrum of color than sRGB. The results have to be seen in order to be believed, it's gorgeous.
