I've been using many different monitors for my workstation and gaming use, with my Acer Predator X27 (4K 144Hz G-SYNC HDR) and other 34-inch 3440x1440 monitors but only up to 100Hz so far, with some monitors in the pipeline to review at 3440x1440 @ 144Hz -- but 200Hz straight up? It's insane.
I'm an avid fan of Overwatch and Apex Legends, and while the former doesn't support 21:9 aspect ratio, the latter does. Respawn did a great job with the 21:9 support on Apex Legends, and running it at 3440x1440 at anywhere near 200FPS is going to be tricky -- but with some details turned down the experience is beyond smooth.
The bonus here is that just because the ASUS ROG Swift PG35VQ is an UltraWide monitor, you can still run other resolutions on it for games but you'll get black bars on the sides. Overwatch ran at 2560x1440 at well over 200FPS with some detail tweaks on the ASUS ROG Strix RTX 2080 SUPER graphics card.
Until now I was maxing out with 144-165Hz gaming monitors, but having the huge boost up to 200Hz on the ROG Swift PG35VQ is a huge win for Overwatch -- and well any competitive shooter like it at 200FPS. Games like the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and the just-launched Control from Remedy are games that will really showcase what ASUS has crammed into the PG35VQ.
ASUS has almost ripped a hole in both space and time and ripped the PG35VQ from the future, it is that good. Sure it is expensive, but someone has to be making the Tesla of PC hardware -- and that is ASUS here with the ROG Swift PG35VQ. Nothing but all-class, no-holds-barred, relentless awesomeness wrapped up into a 35-inch 21:9 UltraWide gaming monitor.
If you've got the budget, you simply won't regret this purchase. I really just needed to get this review done so I could spend what little time I have left with it, as it will leave a lasting impression. Nothing will come close to this for a while, as ASUS has a new standard for UltraWide gaming monitors with the PG35VQ.
