ASUS today announced the ROG Swift PG278Q 27-inch gaming monitor. The Swift PG278Q features WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution, 120+ Hz refresh rate, and 1ms response time. It also features ASUS GamePlus and NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technology.
ASUS GamePlus is an OSD overlay that enables crosshair and timer functions to be displayed on the monitor. Gamers can select from four different crosshair types to suit the gaming environment, while the timer function allows players to track elapsed time in real-time strategy games.
NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ synchronizes the display’s refresh rates to the GPU. It eliminates screen tearing as well as minimizes stutter and input lag.
The ROG Swift PG278Q also features an array of interface options that include DisplayPort 1.2 for native WQHD output and dual USB 3.0 ports. The PG278Q is also VESA wall mount capable and is equipped with a versatile stand with full tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustment. A 5-way joystick allows the user to easily navigate the OSD and make quick monitor adjustments.
The ASUS ROG SWIFT PG278Q will be available in the Q2 of 2014 with a US price of $799.
