Oct 19, 2015 Written by:ROG Article

Having all that grunt in your rig to power your games would be meaningless if you don't have a great display to do it justice.  If your frame rate is capped by your display, your trusty ol' 19" isn't cutting it anymore, the pixels are so big you can literally count them, or the tearing in games is bringing you to tears, it's time to upgrade one of the longest-serving components there is (apart from your case).  A great display can be your best friend for many years and with 2K/WQHD and 4K/UHD resolutions as the ceiling, ROG Swift PG279Q and Swift PG27AQ gaming displays won't be needing an upgrade for a long time (look at how long 1080p Full-HD has been around!).  


Both 27" displays feature in-plane switching (IPS) panels with 4ms response time, Nvidia G-Sync, ASUS-exclusive GamePlus hotkeys for in-game enhancements, GameVisual technology for optimized visuals, Ultra-Low Blue Light and Flicker-Free technologies to protect your eyes and reduce eye-strain during long sessions of gaming.

ROG Swift PG279Q

PG279Q has a 2K/WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution, and is the world’s first display with a 165Hz refresh rate for for unrivaled smoothness!   At this resolution, you will find it possible to run all your games smoothly, although for some games it is still a struggle even for the majority of systems out there.  Many would argue that WQHD is the sweet spot because it is really, really difficult to run everything in 4K!

ROG Swift PG27AQ

PG27AQ is for those who have the best and demand the best (you need a helluva system to run this for gaming), but it certainly doesn't hurt to future-proof yourself.  This features a 4K/UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution for four-times the sharpness compared to Full-HD!
