With the recent announcement that Acer’s 4K HDR10 144Hz G-Sync display was delayed until 2018, the thoughts of many went straight to ASUS and whether or not their ROG Swift equivalent would receive a similar delay.
 
We have now heard that ASUS still plans on releasing their ROG Swift PG27UQ G-Sync HDR by the end of 2017, though the company has confirmed no official release date. 

ASUS’ ROG Swift PG27UQ 4K 144Hz G-Sync HDR monitor was originally set to release in Q3 2017, offering higher framerates, wider colour space and lower latencies than any of today’s 4K PC gaming displays.  

Nvidia has announced that G-Sync HDR technology will provide users with HDR10 compatibility with support for the PCI-P3 colour space and a peak brightness of 1,000rd/m^2. This colour space is 25% wider than sRGB and uses a Quantum Dot Enhancement Film (QDEF) to create deep saturated reds and greens out of blue light, which allows this display to offer more realistic colour representation and more accurate images. 

The ROG PG27UQ will feature dynamically controlled across 384 zones, to enable ultra-high contrast and richer, more natural-looking dark scenes. This feature is known as local-dimming and this is a very high-end implementation of the feature. 

ASUS has confirmed that the ROG Swift PG27UQ will use DisplayPort 1.4 to offer Ultra-high resolutions, HDR compatibility and support for 144Hz refresh rates, making this display easily the most impressive consumer monitor that we have ever seen.

This display has dual HDMI 1.4 ports and one HDMI 2.0 port for 4K content playback, with this display supporting VESA mounts for easy mounting to monitor arms and other display mounting solutions. 

Nvidia’s G-Sync HDR technology also promises to deliver HDR images without adding additional latency to the panel, unlike many existing HDR solutions that are found in modern televisions (which can add 15-40ms of latency). This will make HDR gaming content much more playable and suitable for online/competitive gaming. 

At this time ASUS has not revealed this display’s official pricing and release date.
