ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ gaming monitor comes in June, and features NVIDIA G-SYNC, 4K, and HDR for $2,000
From Press Release:
Fremont, CA (May 23, 2018) — ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced that ROG Swift PG27UQ will be available in June 2018. This 27-inch G-SYNC™ HDR gaming monitor is the first to offer DisplayHDR 1000 certification along with stunning 4K UHD gaming visuals with incredible contrast, colors and brightness at an overclockable 144Hz refresh rate for ultimate gaming experience. The new customizable lighting features – ROG Light Signal and Light Signature projection kit – provide the ideal gaming atmosphere. In addition, its built-in light sensor automatically adjusts brightness to help prevent eyestrain.
NVIDIA G-SYNC and High Dynamic Range technologies
The ROG Swift 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. Additionally, 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 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.
PG27UQ is factory pre-calibrated for superior color accuracy with a ∆E (Delta-E) color difference value of less than 3.0. Featuring an IPS display with quantum dot technology, PG27UQ provides brighter images and supports professional-grade 97% DCI-P3 / 99% AdobeRGB 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 light effects that can be projected from PG27UQ onto a desktop surface.
