ASUS teases the “World’s First” Dual-Mode monitor, the ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDP

Two monitors in one – ASUS Teases their ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDP

ASUS has teased what they are calling the “World’s first” Dual-Mode gaming monitor. Meet the ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDP, a gaming OLED screen that supports both 1080p 480Hz and 4K 240Hz.

This monitor is designed to be two screens in one. No more will gamers have to choose between ultra-high refresh rate 1080p gaming and high refresh rate 4K gaming. With the ROG PG32UCDP, you can have both.

Ultra high refresh rate 1080p monitors are incredibly popular amongst competitive gamers. When reaction times and latency can make the difference between wins and losses, you want to have the fastest screen possible. That said, you don’t need those same speeds when playing single-player story driven titles. This is where the ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDP comes in.

We expect ASUS’ new ROG Swift monitor to be both G-Sync Compatible and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro compliant. As an OLED screen we also expect this screen to feature a DisplayHDR 400 True Black certification or better. Like other OLED screens, we expect this monitor to also feature ultra-fast Gray-to-Gray response times.

With “Dual Mode”, gamers can switch their screens from high resolution mode to high refresh rate mode with just a few clicks. You can enjoy 480Hz support when playing Counter Strike 2, and enjoy a crips 4K experience when playing Red Dead Redemption 2.

Strangely, both ASUS and LG have revealed “Dual Mode” 4K 240Hz/1080p 480Hz monitors over the past 24 hours. LG’s new UltraGear 32GS95UE OLED monitor calls ASUS’ “Dual Mode” Dual-Hz. Both monitors appear to utilise the same underlying technology, and both claim to be the “world’s first”. I guess we will have to wait and see which company is first to market with this new screen technology.
