ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the Swift PG278Q Gaming Monitor, a 27-inch WQHD display with a 144 Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time to cater to the graphical requirements of today's fast paced games. It boasts gamer-centric features for a better gameplay experience, NVIDIA G-SYNC Technology for smooth, fluid visuals, as well as exquisite and ergonomic design touches.

The world's first and only WQHD G-SYNC fast gaming monitor
Designed especially for gamers, the ROG Swift PG278Q Gaming Monitor features a 27-inch WQHD 2560 x 1440 panel with a pixel density of 109 pixels per inch (PPI). The use of a WQHD panel gives it four times (4X) the resolution of 720p for sharper images, and provides 77% more screen workspace than similarly-sized 1080p displays.





The PG278Q is ideal for today's fast-paced games and delivers fluid visuals thanks to a 144 Hz refresh rate and rapid 1 ms response time. Users have the option of selecting their preferred refresh rates, with the exclusive Turbo key for one-click switching between 60 Hz, 120 Hz or 144 Hz display modes.

The PG278Q has built-in NVIDIA G-SYNC technology to deliver the smoothest, fastest and most breathtaking gaming visuals imaginable. G-SYNC synchronizes the display's refresh rate to the GPU in a NVIDIA GeForce GTX-powered PC, eliminating screen tearing and minimizing display stutter and input lag.

ASUS-exclusive gameplay features and advanced connectivity
The ROG Swift PG278Q Gaming Monitor features the ASUS-exclusive GamePlus hotkey with crosshair overlay and timer functions. The former gives gamers a choice of four different crosshairs to suit their gaming environment, while the latter provides an on-screen timer to help keep track of spawn and build times. An intuitive 5-way navigation joystick provides quick and easy access to OSD settings, allowing users to switch display parameters with a flick of a finger. The PG278Q is designed for marathon gaming sessions, with a smart air vent design that aids in dissipating heat to keep things cool, even after hours of use.

The ROG Swift PG278Q Gaming Monitor includes DisplayPort 1.2 for native WQHD output and two USB 3.0 ports for convenient pass-through connectivity.

ROG-inspired, ergonomic design
Aesthetically, the ROG Swift PG278Q uses bold, precise lines to give it an air of durability and reliability. It features a base adorned with an intricate and enigmatic design that is fully-illuminated with a special LED Light-in-Motion feature.

The PG278Q features a slim profile and a super-narrow 6 mm bezel that make it ideal for almost-seamless multi-display setups. An ergonomically-designed stand with tilt, swivel, pivot and height adjustment gives users a comfortable and ideal viewing position for long marathon gaming sessions. A cable-management design feature found on the back of the monitor lets users keep their gaming rigs tidy and free from tangled wires.

AVAILABILITY & PRICING
ROG Swift PG278Q Ultimate Gaming Monitor is now available in Taiwan, as well as the Asia Pacific and European markets. It will be available in China in mid-August and North America by end of August, 2014. Prices start from US$799 and will vary by region.

Well to be honest $799 is not too bad and it was right in the spot for me paying for such premium, in contrary to UK pricing which comes as a pre-order for £720. That actually is actually a slap in the face and making me think to hold off for a little while with my decision of getting it.

Makes me wonder if i'm the only one with idiotic problems with 144Hz through DisplayPort on Radeon GPU. It keeps on resetting to 85Hz after every system wake which is jolly annoying.

price is GOOD for 1440p @144hz monitor... this is promising... I hope to see soon 4k @120hz under 1000$ and then hope for sub 1000$ GPU to run that biatch (yes - I did write word "hope" :D)

TN for $799, regardless of the extra BS, no thanks. Though I still want one, its a sexy looking monitor.

So much for July launch. They neglected to mention in any of their press that it wouldn't be coming to North America until end of August.

I agree. For $799 If you want a proper picture for the screen your lag response will vary from 6.9ms @ 144hz to 12.2ms @ 60hz avg. Now slap G-Sync on there and imagine your lag variance jumping from 6-12ms on a FPS every few seconds. For that amount of money I wouldn't expect to sacrifice picture quality for responsiveness.

The aesthetics are nice.


Haha, and that's just this forum.


They also haven't mention if they ever got G-Sync to work in surround.

I do not see TN as being such a down side on a gaming grade monitor. With the way they are now a days I prefer the responsiveness of TN sometimes to IPS. But this maybe still expensive, but its a 144hz monitor at 2560x1440p so I expect it to be. I wish Gsync was optional because I could see it being 200 bucks less roughly without it.

They also haven't mention if they ever got G-Sync to work in surround.
That would be an expensive endeavor to achieve (A Gsync surround setup I mean). Plus the fact is Gsync requires a DisplayPort Cable which cards normally only have one of those so you would have to have a hub. So not only do they need to support surround at 2560x1440p on a hub, they need to at the desired framerate with Gsync. I do not see that it has been achieved yet so its going to come down to if they decide if its worthwhile to work on (Surround from Nvidia in general does not get much attention sadly).

Pass.

I'm fine with 60hz at 1440p. I can't imagine the headaches and frustration of trying to chase the illustrious 120 frame mark on every game at 2560 res. It's hard enough getting 60 frames sometimes.

The whole point of G-Sync is that you don't have chase ultimate frame rates, assuming you can reach the minimum required for the tech to shine you'll enjoy and lovely smooth experience regardless.

Like no need for Mantle with DX12 coming?
That shit will take time to become main stream. More interested in mantle though but DX12 ?, nope cannot say i am bothered as it will require new hardware and a new OS and not interested in spending tons more cash on some thing that will do pretty much the same shi.

Interesting attitude, Mantle currently requires an AMD GCN card, that will stop that shit becoming mainstream too.

You could say.

Interesting attitude, G-Sync currently requires an Nvidia Kepler card, that will stop that shit becoming mainstream too.

Like no need for G-Sync with VESA Adaptive-Sync coming.

Same arguments your try'n to make work against you.

You could, but I didn't make that argument in the first place, you are merely proving my point.

Lets put it this way i am not willing to shell out another $130 for a OS $500+ for a new LCD\TV and surly not going be replacing my 290X any time soon. Even if i had not got the 290X i still would not think that going nvidia and gsync would be worth it.

So if DX12 comes tomorrow it's still pointless until company's start using it same goes with mantle too how ever with mantle it don't require me before or now to get a new TV\LCD.

But Gsync is not needed i do believe so you paying for some thing that you don't need..

If i remember it was not to long ago that VESA some thing like it and will become default.
http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/t...adaptive-sync-to-displayport-standard.200741/
Pointless arguing about a technology that isn't implemented yet. Can I buy a monitor with it? No. Do I know when I'll be able to buy a monitor with it? No.

You can buy a G-SYNC ready monitor right now. So you either want to use the technology now in which case you buy a supported monitor or you don't care so you just wait it out until hopefully a-sync monitors come to market. I'm not going to wait for a barely announced technology that doesn't exist in any monitors and hasn't been compared side-by-side.

Pointless arguing about a technology that isn't implemented yet. Can I buy a monitor with it? No. Do I know when I'll be able to buy a monitor with it? No.

Sure your able to buy a Gsync monitor with it but knowing that the standard is to be what Gsync is you be foolish to buy it, and why buy some thing that is only good for one brand as i understand it is that Gsync only works with nVidia cards.

Better of waiting if you know, well unless you have money to burn i guess as i am sure many do.
