ASUS Republic of Gamers Announces ROG Swift PG65 BFGD

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced that it will unveil the new ROG Swift PG65 big format gaming display (BFGD) with NVIDIA G-SYNC at CES 2018 in Las Vegas. The 65-inch 4K UHD ROG Swift PG65 is the world's largest gaming display format, and is designed to bring uncompromising performance and a giant screen experience that's ideal for PC gaming. The new monitor will be on display at the ROG Showcase Room at Encore Las Vegas, Fairway Villa, from January 9-12, 2018.
Uncompromising performance
ROG Swift PG65 is a huge 65-inch 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) HDR BFGD that finally brings PC gaming to the giant screen. With NVIDIA G-SYNC and a 120Hz refresh rate, ROG Swift PG65 ensures a highly responsive, tear-free, stutter-free, and immersive gaming experience.

ROG Swift PG65 can emit 1000 nits peak brightness that's several times greater than standard displays. Its direct-lit full-array LED backlight is dynamically controlled across all zones, providing very high contrast for richer, more natural-looking dark scenes. Its 178° wide-view panel provides brighter imagery, and its cinema-grade DCI-P3 color gamut provides a color range that is 25% wider than sRGB, resulting in more realistic color reproduction.

With ROG Swift PG65, users can also enjoy 4K HDR content streaming with the integrated NVIDIA SHIELD, the most advanced streamer with video, gaming, voice control and smart home command capabilities.

The evolution of gaming monitors
Gaming monitors have advanced by leaps and bounds over the past few years, with higher refresh rates, lower input lag, and NVIDIA G-SYNC technology providing a more responsive and smooth gaming experience. But while PC gamers have been able to enjoy these advancements at their desks, a giant screen PC gaming experience has been inaccessible - until now.

ASUS ROG has always strived to deliver the best experiences for PC gamers, and ROG Swift gaming monitors have consistently offered top-of-the-line specs such as high refresh rates, quick response times, G-SYNC technology, and crisp resolution. The ROG commitment aims to ensure that gamers will have outstanding performance, anywhere - and with the ROG Swift PG65 BFGD, that experience finally extends to the gaming den.

More interested in the smaller models ... something with a PPI > 100 ... 36 - 42"

If it was an IPS screen, hard to imagine this not being highlighted in all the press releases.

Since they are made by AU Optronics, most probably AHVA.

Big fucking gaming displays? Well played nVidia well played, I'd love one of these bad boys but I can't reach the heady heights of the market that want the fastest, the biggest and the best... yesterday.

Now someone pay those hollywood actresses equal money, their kids WANT THESE.

I wonder if any of the big TV manufactures have something in the pipe that can compete with these. Depending on cost compared to other high end 65" TVs these could be very interesting indeed. With a Sheild built in this is essentially a smart TV without the typical compromises. The footnote about these supporting 24p with Gsync is super interesting. HDMI 2.1 DP 1.4 maybe both will be supported.

How do they achieve 4K @120Hz? Do these need two cables or more? I'm not reading anything about what HDMI or DP version they are using. They should have HDMI 1.2 at this point, but the lack of information means it's probably using the old standard.

I would imagine these will have HDMI 1.2, hopefully they will have DP as well.

Hdmi 1.2!? That's from year 2005. I guess you meant hdmi 2.1. If you check linus tech tips comparable acer model is still a very rough prototype and it's very hard to say which wires it is using(dp most probably).

My money is on AMVA -> VA -panel not ips. If my memory serves me well, you get higher contrast ratio with VA than IPS and HDR is all about high contrast ratio.

EDIT: Well at least all of 65" panels from AU optronics are VA panels(All but one MVA are AMVA3).

Whoops, you are right.

Considering that the 4k 120hz monitors we were supposed to see by the end of last year from Acer and Asus have not materialized yet, I imagine it will be 3rd or 4th quarter before we see these hit the market.
