G-Sync HDR is finally coming, after a year of delays, production issues and quiet murmuring. ASUS has finally revealed the pricing and release timeframe for their ROG Swift PG27UQ display, combining an HDR10 capable 4K Quantum Dot display with 144Hz G-Sync technology to create one of the market’s most complex monitors.  

The specifications of this display area already well known within hardware circles, using an AU Optronics 27-inch HDR 10 compliant display and a G-Sync module to offer a 4K display resolution, a refresh rate of up to 144Hz, G-Sync variable refresh rate support and full HDR10 functionality. To achieve this ASUS are using DisplayPort 1.4 to provide this display with enough bandwidth to facilitate a 4K resolution at such a high refresh rate, with today’s DisplayPort 1.2 4K monitors maxing out at 60Hz.    

The ROG Swift PC27UQ is listed as having a 4ms grey-to-grey response time and a peak brightness of 1,000 nits, using a Quantum Dot IPS panel to deliver bright highlights and deep blacks when combined with this display’s 384-zone Full Array Local Dimming (FALD) backlight.
