ASUS Intros ROG Swift PG258Q Call of Duty - Black Ops 4 Edition

ASUS today introduced a Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 co-branded variant of its ROG Swift PG258Q gaming monitor. This includes game branding on the front bezel, a Black Ops 4 logo projected below the monitor stand instead of the ASUS ROG logo (customizable), and the monitor's RGB LED embellishments glowing in Black Ops 4 shade of amber. The rest of this 25-inch monitor's feature-set remains unchanged: 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution, 240 Hz refresh-rate, a TN-panel, 1 ms (GTG) response time, 350 cd/m² maximum brightness, and support for NVIDIA G-Sync, along with ULMB (ultra low motion blur). Display inputs include DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI. Available now, the ASUS ROG Swift PG258Q Call of Duty - Black Ops 4 Edition is priced at USD $549.

Update: ASUS reached out to us that their product page for this monitor had inaccuracies related to resolution, panel type, and response-time. We have hence corrected them.

Not sure how it can be a 240hz with a 5ms gtg. Too slow. Need to be under 4.3ms with proper processing

I was about to say something like this. 5ms will not render 240hz. The best 5ms can theoretically do is 200hz and that assumes perfect optimization, which rarely happens. The best that panel is likely to actually display is 170hz. Now if it were 2ms or 3ms, then you're in with a chance to do 240hz.

Then the monitor you are referring to has a native resolution of 1440p. The monitor here is a native 1080p screen...

Not on the part of btarunr, the ASUS website shows all the same info. Either someone at ASUS market messed up or ASUS is trying to pull a fast one. Monkey's diddling a football..
