ASUS unveils its ROG Swift OLED PG42UQ and PG48UQ gaming monitors
At CES 2022, ASUS has revealed two new ROG series gaming monitors that promise to deliver gamers outstanding colour accuracy, deep blacks, and support for 120Hz gaming at 4K without resorting to chroma sub-sampling. Presenting the ROG Swift OLED PG42UQ and PG48UQ, ROG's first OLED gaming monitors.
These OLED gaming displays are not rebadged panels from LG, these screens are customised for gaming workloads. ASUS has added a unique micro-texture anti-glare coating and a custom cooling solution to its screens to deliver a better viewing experience and thermals that are up to 16% lower than competing OLED screens. ASUS knows that keeping their OLED panels cool can help prevent burn-in, making this a critical upgrade for their OLED monitor lineup. Beyond that, this cooling solution allows their OLED panels to output peak brightness levels as high as 900 nits, but only to a limited area of the screen
Both screens are calibrated to deliver users a Delta E < 2 colour accuracy, support HDR, 10-bit colour, and cover 98% of the DCI-P3 colour gamut.
With full access to HDMI 2.1's 48 Gbps bandwidth, gamers can utilise ROG's new OLED screens at 120Hz without any compromises on quality. This makes this screen ideal for PC and console gaming. Variable refresh rate technology and auto low latency modes also ensure great gaming experiencing be eliminating screen tearing while minimising display lag.
The ROG Swift OLED display range includes the Swift OLED PG42UQ – the world’s first 42-inch OLED gaming monitor with Micro-texture coating, and the larger 48-inch Swift OLED PG48UQ for users looking for a more immersive experience. Both displays showcase 4K visuals at 120 Hz, and make full use of OLED technology features such as 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, 0.1 ms response time, plus true 10-bit color and 98% DCI-P3 color coverage. These displays are also factory pre-calibrated to Delta E < 2 color accuracy.
Unlike other OLED displays, ROG Swift OLED series monitors feature the new anti-glare Micro-texture coating on the panel surface to reduce glare, allowing viewers to see more precise onscreen colors. These displays also boast a unique thermal solution with a custom heatsink and internal airflow layout designed to optimize heat exchange. These keep operating temperatures below 50? C (up to 16% lower than competitor models) and still reach a peak brightness of 900 nits.
The Swift OLED displays include HDMI 2.1 FRL to offer gamers full 48 Gbps bandwidth to support native 4K 120 Hz visuals without chroma subsampling. Console gamers can also take advantage of variable refresh-rate technology and auto-low-latency mode for super-smooth, lag-free gaming visuals. In addition, the Swift OLED displays have an array of connectivity features including two HDMI 2.1 and two HDMI 2.0 ports, DisplayPort 1.4 and a USB hub.
Sadly, ASUS has not revealed the launch date or pricing of its ROG Swift OLED gaming monitors. These are expected to be revealed soon, either at CES 2022 or shortly afterwards.
