Some gamers do not like large screens, whether they want to minimise eye movement across a screen or simply to make their PCs more portable for Lan events. 

ASUS has today announced their new ROG Swift PG248Q G-Sync Monitor, which offers a refresh rate of 180Hz, making this one of the fastest displays on the market. This monitor will use a 24 inch TN display, offering gamers the fastest response times and allowing esports gamers to easily keep their entire monitor on their field of view at all times.

With a resolution of just 1080p this monitor is certainly not the most impressive display that is available, but when used with a Nvidia GPU this display will certainly offer fantastic Gaming performance with G-Sync. 

ASUS has confirmed that this display will be the official display of some of the world's largest esports events, including ESL One 2016 and The International 2016, with ASUS expecting this display to sell very well amongst esports fans.  

The pricing and release date of this monitor has not been confirmed by ASUS at this time.

I'm a big fan of 24" inch 1080P displays as they look sharp at that size and they are just big enough without having to turn your head.Quote

Yeah 24" 1080 is a sweet spot. 27" and higher really need 1440. One of these would be awesome as a replacement for my middle Samsung. That way there's GSync/high refresh for games that support it on just one monitor or just keep it down to 60hz for surround gaming.Quote

If i didn't have a VG248QE i'd be tempted by this, even though i suppose this will carry quite the premium, not sure if the extra 36hz and gsync are worth it. 120hz strobelight is good enough for me for now and the foreseeable future, it's not like gsync makes much of a difference when the framerate is at 250+ fps anyways.Quote

I had an excellent HP 25" 1080 for a long time and I actually think that is the sweet spot for pixel density vs screen real estate. 1080 on my beloved BenQ 27" is a little low really. Granted I can't see any pixelation or problems with it unless I'm really looking but I think 1440 is the ideal resolution for 27 and larger.

As for this Asus, 180 Hz? That might be overdoing it a little. While I absolutely love 120+ Hz gaming and could never go back to 60 Hz, I don't see the benefit to 180 Hz and can't believe anybody could tell the difference between 144 FPS and 180 FPS. As long as there is no price premium for it over a 144 Hz I guess it doesn't matter but I can't see paying any more for the extra frames.Quote
