ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ: A Supremely Bright And Fast Display
The ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ has been a long time coming, and spoiler alert, it was worth the wait. The ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ is one of the first monitors to finally bring together a full complement of cutting-edge technologies and combine them into a single offering, like a delicious stew full of tasty gaming ingredients. In this case, the recipe calls for a 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160) in-plane switching (IPS) panel with a blazing fast 144Hz refresh rate, seasoned with High Dynamic Range (HDR) visuals, and garnished with NVIDIA G-Sync support. Talk about a drool-worthy dish!
ASUS first teased the PG27UQ at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas...in January 2017. Yes, we have been eagerly awaiting this monitor's arrival for 18 months. So what has taken so long? Well, we're not privy to all of the juicy details. We have a few theories, but it doesn't really matter what the holdup was, because it's here now and it marks a new era in premium gaming monitors. From this point forward, we can no longer say that there aren't any 4K monitors with refresh rates higher than 60Hz, with G-Sync and HDR to boot. Game on!
