Introduction

ASUS sent me a very early Christmas present a couple of weeks ago, with its new flagship ROG Swift PG35VQ -- by name alone you might not know it, but it is a beast. The ASUS ROG Swift PG35VQ is a 35-inch 21:9 UltraWide gaming monitor with a native 3440x1440 resolution, with a ridiculous 200Hz refresh rate and labeled a G-SYNC ULTIMATE gaming monitor.

We also have what is probably the best HDR monitor on the market with the ASUS ROG Swift PG35VQ, with up to 1000 nits of brightness across its 512 zones. Considering OLED sits at around 700 nits, ASUS is pushing 1000 nits which provides an intensely bright, yet superbly detailed image on the Quantum Dot-powered display.

NVIDIA's G-SYNC ULTIMATE badge can't just be stamped onto any monitor, as it requires the display to offer a maintained peak level of 1000 nits. ASUS is using an AU Optronics panel here, with the 35-inch 3440x1440 200Hz panel offering G-SYNC and HDR10 for the ultimate (if you'll pardon the pun) in gaming.

ASUS wraps the ROG Swift PG35VQ up in a slick-looking monitor, with an RGB ROG eye at the back just for shiz and giggles. You'd expect as much considering you're looking at over $2000 for a monitor. Hell, to spend that much on your graphics card you would have to buy NVIDIA's insane TITAN RTX which comes with an even crazier 24GB of GDDR6 (which I tested on this monitor) for an even more bonkers price of $2500.
