ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ: The Best Gaming Monitor Ever Made

Gaming @ 4K 144Hz

 

I played some of the hottest new games on the ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ with Overwatch my primary game at 4K and runs liquid smooth at 144FPS on this display, while Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Battlefield V rounded out my gaming use on the monitor. All games looked beyond amazing, better than any other display that I've used for gaming easily.

It's much more apparent at 4K as the monitor stretches its legs with the millions of pixels being rendered every second, with non-native resolutions not something you should be buying this monitor for. You'd reduce graphics details in games to get higher frame rates, which is something I had to do in COD: Black Ops 4 and Battlefield V even on my GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.

 

Running games like that on Ultra settings is near impossible at 4K and hitting 144FPS on a single graphics card, and won't be something we can do for a while yet. With this monitor you want native 4K at 100FPS minimum, which is where I sat performance wise with the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti on a mix of medium and high settings in Black Ops 4.

 

DICE pumps in considerable eye candy into its Frostbite-powered Battlefield V, most of which I had to run at a mix of Medium and High to maintain 100FPS average. It felt surprisingly smooth as well, something that should be credited to the power of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and the G-Sync technology, both of which NVIDIA nails for 4K 144Hz HDR gaming.
