The world's first gaming monitor with DisplayHDR 1000 certification. Which means its peak brightness is reference level, so the HDR will look incredible and most likely worlds better than non-certified displays. Not only that but you get 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution and a 144Hz overclockable G-Sync refresh rate. But, the 27-inch Quantom Dot IPS panel won't come cheap.
Because the new ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ which will be available for pre-order in Australia from later this week has a launch price of AUD $4499.00. Yeah, that's a spicy 4K HDR meatball. And here we were wondering why hardware makers aren't bringing more HDR displays to the PC gaming market. Naturally, this is the top of the line model from ASUS so there's that too.
4K UHD with a 144Hz refresh rate and NVIDIA G-SYNC
ROG Swift PG27UQ is the very first monitor to run 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) content at an overclockable 144Hz refresh rate to provide gamers with detailed ultra-high definition visuals at extremely super smooth frame-rates. Gamers are treated to unmatched levels of detail, with sharp images and crisp text. Additionally, PG27UQ features NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ display technology for silky-smooth gameplay with no frustrating lag or screen tearing, so gamers get the upper hand in first-person shooters, racing, real-time strategy and sports titles.
High Dynamic Range and Quantum Dot technologies
NVIDIA® G-SYNC High Dynamic Range (HDR) monitors provide a range of luminance that's closer to what the human eye can experience, and offer a wider color range than traditional monitors. G-SYNC HDR monitors take this performance to a whole new level, with a 1000cd/m2 peak brightness that's several times greater than standard displays. Its LED backlight is dynamically controlled across 384 zones, providing very high contrast for richer, more natural-looking dark scenes. Furthermore, gamers can plug in their HDR-capable consoles or streaming devices and enjoy highly detailed 4K HDR content on ROG Swift PG27UQ.
PG27UQ is the first and only gaming monitor with DisplayHDR 1000 certification, the display industry’s fully open standard specifying HDR quality, including luminance, color gamut, bit depth and rise time that targets not only gaming monitors, but also displays for professionals, enthusiasts and content creators.
Featuring an IPS display with quantum-dot technology, PG27UQ provides brighter images and supports professional-grade 97% DCI-P3 / 99% Adobe RGB color gamut. DCI-P3 has a 25%-wider color range than sRGB, resulting in more realistic colors and a wide viewing angle.
Show your gaming pride
With exclusive ASUS Aura Sync lighting technology, ROG Swift PG27UQ provides ambient lighting that can be synchronized with a growing RGB ecosystem of Aura Sync-enabled components and peripherals. A built-in ROG Light Signal on the top of its stand lets gamers show their gaming spirit by casting the ROG logo onto the wall, and the Light Signature projection kit allows for the creation and customization of lighting effects that can be projected from PG27UQ onto a desktop surface.
Designed for marathon gaming
ROG Swift PG27UQ is designed for marathon gaming. It uses an ambient light sensor to check the light conditions and adjust the brightness levels. The sensor lowers brightness in dark conditions and raises brightness in well-lit conditions. Also, it includes TÜV Rheinland-certified ASUS Ultra-low Blue Light filters and Flicker-free technology to offer protection against harmful blue light and on-screen flicker. Additionally, ROG Swift PG27UQ features a stand that’s ergonomically designed to offer extensive swivel, tilt, and height adjustments — so gaming is always a comfortable experience with an ideal viewing angle.
