ASUS’ ROG Swift PG27UQ 4K 144Hz G-Sync monitor will release in Q3 2017

 
 
ASUS’ ROG Swift PG27UQ 4K 144Hz G-Sync HDR monitor is set to release in Q3 2017 at the price of $2000, offering higher framerates, wider colour space and lower latencies than today’s 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. 

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 existing HDR solutions found in modern televisions (which typically add 15-40ms of latency). This will make HDR gaming content much more playable and suitable for online/competitive gaming. 

Right now this display is expected in Q3 2017, with a price of $2000 in the US. At this time UK and EU pricing for this display is unknown.
