Asus has formally launched its 27-inch entry into the burgeoning OLED monitor market. The Asus ROG Swift PG27AQDM rocks a QHD 2,560 by 1,440 pixel native decision and runs at as much as 240Hz refresh. Alongside this new OLED panel, Asus is rolling out a 540Hz 1080p monitor, a 49-inch 5K monster and a super-fast 160Hz 4K display.
As is rapidly turning into the norm with OLED displays, Asus is making some eye-popping claims in terms of pixel response, score the PG27AQDM at 0.03ms for GtG response, with full on/off response coming in at 0.1ms. Each figures are in extra of an order of magnitude higher than any typical LCD monitor.
Very seemingly, the brand new Asus ROG Swift PG27AQDM is utilizing LG panel know-how and really seemingly the identical OLED panel seen in LG’s personal UltraGear 27GR95QE-B.
Asus hasn’t priced up the PG27AQDM as but, however the $999 sticker of the LG model might be indicator. This OLED monitor goes to be hella costly for a 27-inch 1440p mannequin.
It’ll even be fascinating to see what brightness Asus can obtain. Asus claims 1,000 nits peak brightness, however as but we have not seen a full-screen determine. The PG27AQDM has a customized heatsink, which bodes nicely. However, to this point, gaming displays based mostly on LG versus Samsung OLED know-how have struggled to ship respectable full-screen brightness.
Subsequent up, for pace freaks Asus has the brand new Swift Professional PG248QP, a 24-inch 1080p panel utilizing TN LCD tech to attain 540Hz refresh. TN tech has fallen out of vogue of late, with IPS turning into the go-to possibility for fast LCD displays.
Nonetheless, TN stays the quickest LCD know-how out there, making it important for attaining that sky-high refresh charge. Asus is not quoting response instances for now, solely stating that the brand new panel gives 60% higher response instances than “normal” TH panels. For now, pricing hasn’t been confirmed.
Lastly, the Asus ROG Swift PG32UQXR is Asus’s first DisplayPort 2.1 monitor, enabling it to mix full 4K with 160Hz refresh. It is a 32-inch IPS mannequin with a mini-LED backlight comprising 576 zones. Brightness is pegged at 1,000 nits.
Like the remainder of Asus’s CES display debutants, relatively annoyingly there is no pricing for the brand new Asus ROG Swift PG32UQXR. Nevertheless it completely, positively will not be low cost.
All of which implies Asus has one thing for everybody when it comes to display tech at CES this 12 months. Effectively, aside from anybody on a remotely constrained price range, that’s. By no means thoughts.
