Last year we reviewed the ASUS ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QNR gaming monitor we noted that seeing games push 200 fps and higher on a display that could match was something of a game changer. At the time we didn't think it would be all that noticeable, so we're not going to make that mistake again with the newly announced ASUS ROG Swift 500Hz Gaming Monitor.
Sporting a E-TN (Esports TN) 1080p 24-inch panel it has been build from the ground-up for esports and competitive games. And coming from NVIDIA it will support NVIDIA G-SYNC Esports Mode in addition to NVIDIA Reflex with bonus NVIDIA Reflex Analyzer support for measuring system latency.
If you're wonder what GPU could run games at 500 frames-per-second, well look no further than the high-end GeForce RTX range - which can push that across CS:GO, Valorant, Overwatch, and Rainbow Six Siege. Here's NVIDIA's video showcasing Valorant, where surprisingly the 144 Hz display is on the low end.
The ASUS ROG Swift 500Hz Gaming Monitor announcement came as part of NVIDIA's Computex showcase, where it was also announced that NVIDIA Reflex support is coming to survival game Icarus. Which already features both NVIDIA DLSS and RTX Ray-tracing.
