In 2014 ROG launched the critically acclaimed Swift PG278Q - a 27-inch WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution 144Hz monitor with Nvidia G-Sync. At CES 2015, ROG is announcing the Swift PG27AQ - a 27-inch 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution, providing 2.25x the resolution (and equally, 2.25x greater pixel density) and Nvidia G-Sync that makes gaming with an Nvidia graphics card silky smooth.
Inside ROG packs its unique GamePlus crosshair overlays and timer functions, while outside it has an easy-to-navigate on-screen display (OSD) with a five-way navigation joystick and hotkey shortcuts, an ergonomic design with full tilt, swivel, pivot and height adjustment, and a smart cable-management system in a super narrow bezel design.
Do note that it's not a replacement for the current model and both PGs will exist side-by-side as top-tier gaming monitors, providing a choice to gamers looking at 27-inch displays; between the fast gaming 144Hz, WQHD/8-bit TN PG278Q and the higher 4K resolution, with in-plane switching (IPS spec) LCD in the PG28AQ .
Complete product details will be released at launch.

1) Does it have ULMB (Ultra Low Motion Blur) /3D vision support (since it’s not 120Hz)
Unfortunately these technologies are not available at 4K/60Hz.
2) Does the Swift PG27AQ support ASUS Eye Care?
Yes, the Swift PG27AQ has flicker-free, low-blue light and anti-glare technologies.
3) Why not 4K @ 144Hz?
Current DisplayPort bandwidth limits 4K resolution to 60Hz only, so, for fans of FPS/shooters, beat 'em ups and competitive RTS (for example), we still recommend the fast-refresh PG278Q, while gamers who play MMOs, RTS, MOBA, 4X, Sims or action/adventure (again, for example) will likely prefer the greater resolution, and still benefit from G-Sync.
