At CES 2014 ROG has just announced its new PG278Q ‘Swift’ gaming monitor. 27-inches diagonally with WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution, featuring Nvidia G-Sync hardware and 120+Hz fast-gaming display means this is the ultimate gaming monitor!
ROG Swift PG278Q (extended spec list)
- Display: 27-inch (16:9) wide screen
- Resolution: 2560 × 1440 WQHD with 1ms response rate.
- Brightness: 350cd/m²
- Connectivity: DisplayPort, USB 3.0 ports (upstream x 1, downstream × 2)
- Ergonomic Tilt (+20° ~ -5°), swivel (+60° ~ -60°), pivot (90° clockwise), height adjustment (0 ~ 120mm)
- VESA wall mountable (100 × 100mm)
- ASUS GamePlus
- 5-way menu controller,
- Minimum bezel, Maximum ROG design!
What is ASUS GamePlus?
The crosshair overlay and timer-count down – the VG248QE (the one Nvidia originally used to demonstrate G-Sync) which also includes this feature!
What is the 5-way menu control?
On the right-hand side of the monitor, a tiny joystick with 5-way movement is used to control the OSD. This makes any monitor adjustments extremely easy and quick, greatly improving the user experience!
Why only a single DisplayPort connection?
Nvidia’s G-Sync input currently requires DisplayPort in order to function, so this is the only input available.
Does it come bundled with a DP cable?
Yes! ROG will bundle a high-quality DisplayPort cable.
Does it support VESA wall mounting?
Yes the PG278Q ROG SWIFT monitor fully supports VESA wall mount capability
Does it offer any type of physical adjustment functionality?
The SWIFT is truly flexible offering full tilt, swivel, pivot and height adjustment.
How thin is the bezel?
The SWIFT features a 6mm ultra narrow bezel. Making an excellent choice for users considering multi monitor setups.
Minimum graphic card requirement?
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost or more recent equivalent is required.
I have an AMD graphics card can I still benefit from upgrading to the SWIFT?
While AMD graphics do not currently support G-SYNC technology and as such can not leverage this exciting cutting edge feature AMD RADEON graphic cards readily support high refresh rates and high resolutions. AMD PC gamers can still experience an outstanding high fidelity, low latency and swift response from the PG278Q.
Why is the display TN rather than IPS/PVA/MVA, etc?
Not all TN’s are made the same: the premium panel used in the PG278Q is of very high quality. IPS panels (and their derivatives like PVA/MVA etc) are not suitable for a multitude of reasons: 1) the response rate is simply not fast enough to react to the active change in refresh rate and 2) Current panels available cannot reliably achieve >60Hz without significantly affecting the quality of the image. IGZO technology (and LTPS – low temperature polysilicon – likewise) – yields 100′s of times faster electron mobility versus standard amorphous silicon panels – and thus can provide a response rate comparable to TN (up to 60Hz currently), but, however desirable this technology is, it is still currently cost prohibitively for many PC gaming enthusiasts at this moment, which is why ROG has used a better price:performance, high quality TN panel.
When can I buy one?
The PG278Q Swift will be available in the coming months – keep an eye on ROG site for updates!
