At CES 2020, ASUS revealed the world’s first 360Hz monitor, a screen designed for eSports users which utilised a fast-IPS panel, a G-Sync Module and support for DisplayPort 1.4. 

Meet the ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN, ASUS’ 360Hz monitor in its final form. For competitive gamers, faster refresh rates are game changing. Not only can they improve in-game motion clarity, but their reduced latency gives gamers precious time where milliseconds can spell the difference between victory and defeat. 

With high refresh rate monitors, gamers can react faster and benefit from increased motion clarity. ASUS’ ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN also boasts support for HDR10, though at this time it is unknown how robust this screen’s HDR support is. 

Thanks to Nvidia’s latest G-Sync processor, ASUS can provide gamers with industry-leading refresh rates and tear-free gaming, though it is worth noting that this screen features a “large custom heatsink” to keep this high-speed display controller cool during its operation.

The ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN uses a Fast IPS screen to offer gamers stellar image quality alongside ultra-fast refresh rates. This screen offers users full-HD resolutions at 360Hz with 178/178 degree viewing angles and 1ms G2G response times. Like most recent ASUS ROG monitors, ASUS’ ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN features RGB lighting though ASUS Aura Sync and a stand with tilt, height, swivel and rotate options. 

 
For connectivity, ASUS’ ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN features both DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0 inputs alongside dual USB 3.0 ports and a headphone connection. HDMI 2.0 connections are limited to 240Hz, due to the bandwidth limitations of HDMI 2.0. 

Citing a study from Nvidia, ASUS claims that 360Hz monitors can allow gamers to perform better in games and achieve higher K/D ratios in competitive shooters like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and MOBAs like DOTA 2.
