ASUS details their highly anticipated 540Hz ROG Swift Pro PG248QP display

ASUS sheds some light on their fastest gaming display, the ROG Swift Pro PG248QP

ASUS revealed their ROG Swift Pro PG248QP gaming monitor back at CES 2023, promising gamers a staggeringly high 540Hz maximum refresh rate. With its ESports TN (E-TN) panel, ASUS claims that this new monitor is around 50% more responsive than standard TN panels. Beyond that, this new display from ASUS is further enhanced with an Nvidia G-Sync processor.

ASUS ROG Swift PRO PG248QP is a 24-inch Full HD (1080p) gaming monitor that that is designed for extreme gaming. ASUS has also claimed that this monitor’s ESS codec support can even decrease audio latency though an onboard quad-DAC. Gamers can also access system latency data using Nvidia’s Reflex Analyser, allowing gamers to see how responsive their systems are.

With a maximum refresh rate of 540Hz, this screen can refresh up to nine times faster than traditional 60Hz displays. Add on Nvidia’s newest G-Sync module with G-SYNC Ultra Low Motion Blur 2 support, and this screen promises insane levels of motion clarity. This makes this screen ideal for competitive gaming.

Enhanced with G-SYNC ULMB 2

Nvidia officially revealed their G-Sync Ultra Low Motion Blur 2 (ULMB 2) technology in May 2023. This technology is designed to enable higher levels of motion clarity though full refresh rate backlight strobing. With Nvidia’s ULMB 2 technology, Nvidia promises motion clarity levels of over 1,000 Hz, allowing games to look better than ever at high refresh rates.

Nvidia’s ULMB 2 technology can allow a 360Hz monitor to deliver the same levels of motion clarity as a traditional monitor running at 1440Hz. This is a 4x increase in motion clarity. This new technology from Nvidia minimises ghosting and blur on compatible monitors, giving competitive gamers the sharp images they need to perform at their best.  ASUS’ new ROG Swift Pro PG248QP monitor features this new technology. ASUS claims that this allows their new monitor to deliver over 2,000 Hz of motion clarity.

The ROG Swift Pro PG248QP has the “world’s fastest LCD panel”

With a maximum refresh rate of 540Hz, ASUS’ ROG Swift PRO PG248QP is designed for gamers with the fastest systems. The PG248QP is for gamers who plan to invest in the fastest hardware. As such, gamers can expect this new monitor to be expensive. That said, ASUS has not officially revealed the pricing of this extreme-grade gaming monitor.

Another feature of ASUS’ PG248QP monitor is its adjustable stand, which allows PC gamers to adjust this screen’s on-desk footprint.

The ASUS Swift PRO PG248QP for gamers who demand the fastest monitor. This screen is for gamers who want the largest possible competitive edge over their opponents. If you are not such an extreme gamer, you will likely be better off getting an OLED gaming monitor that can deliver a high quality HDR experience and higher quality imagery. Ultimately, whether or not this screen is for you depends on your priorities, and your budget.
