ROG Swift 360Hz
ROG Swift 360Hz is the world’s fastest gaming monitor. Compared to widely available 240Hz gaming monitors, the ROG Swift 360Hz can put out a whopping 50% more frames every second — supplying esports and competitive gamers with the edge they need to win. With a comfortable 24.5-inch display size and its Full HD resolution, the ROG Swift 360Hz features the same unmistakable design that graces the ASUS lineup of its highest-end ROG gaming monitors.
ROG Swift PG32UQX
ROG Swift PG32UQX is the ultimate 4K high-dynamic-range (HDR) gaming monitor. Featuring an advanced G-SYNC ULTIMATE processor with the latest HDR features, the 32-inch 16:9 display is illuminated by full-array local dimming backlight with 1152 Mini LED zones that let the PG32UQX display the brightest highlights and darkest blacks of a scene with incredible contrast and minimal haloing. Small highlights in games, like light bulbs or the disc of the sun, can reach peak brightness of up to 1400 nits, offering a more lifelike HDR experience than ever before. The Mini-LED backlight can also turn off as needed when it comes to darker scenes.
The G-SYNC processor drives variable refresh rates up to 144Hz and support for 10-bit color throughout the refresh rate range ensures that the PG32UQX always shows off games, movies and desktop applications at their best. With NVIDIA G-SYNC technology, users will enjoy smooth, tear-free gameplay even when frame rates fall below the monitor’s peak 144Hz refresh rate, and with the incredibly capable panel and backlight inside, ROG Swift PG32UQX is certified as NVIDIA G-SYNC ULTIMATE. All G-SYNC Ultimate-certified displays undergo a rigorous validation process and are subjected to 300 image quality tests to ensure they deliver consistent quality and maximum performance.
