TAIPEI, Taiwan, May 23, 2018 — ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced that ROG Swift PG27UQ will be available for purchase starting in June.

The 27-inch G-SYNC™ HDR gaming monitor is the first to offer stunning 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) gaming visuals with incredible contrast, colours and brightness at an overclockable 144Hz refresh rate for ultimate gaming experiences. PG27UQ is the first gaming monitor with DisplayHDR 1000 certification, the top standard for HDR quality, ensuring it delivers superior HDR visuals. Quantum dot technology gives PG27UQ a professional-grade 97% DCI-P3 and 99% Adobe RGB colour gamut for more realistic colours and smooth colour gradations, and every PG27UQ is factory pre-calibrated with a color accuracy ΔE value below 3.0. The new customisable lighting features – ROG Light Signal and Light Signature projection kit – provide the ideal gaming atmosphere. In addition, its built in light sensor automatically adjusts brightness to help prevent eyestrain.

4K UHD with a 144Hz refresh rate and NVIDIA G-SYNC

ROG Swift PG27UQ is the very first monitor to run 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) content at an overclockable 144Hz refresh rate to provide gamers with detailed ultra-high definition visuals at extremely supersmooth frame-rates. Gamers are treated to unmatched levels of detail, with sharp images and crisp text. Additionally, PG27UQ features NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ display technology for silky-smooth gameplay with no frustrating lag or screen tearing, so gamers get the upper hand in first-person shooters, racing, real-time strategy and sports titles.

High Dynamic Range and Quantum Dot technologies

NVIDIA® G-SYNC High Dynamic Range (HDR) monitors provide a range of luminance that's closer to what the human eye can experience, and offer a wider colour range than traditional monitors. G-SYNC HDR monitors take this performance to a whole new level, with a 1000cd/m2 peak brightness that's several times greater than standard displays. Its LED backlight is dynamically controlled across 384 zones, providing very high contrast for richer, more natural-looking dark scenes. Furthermore, gamers can plug in their HDR-capable consoles or streaming devices and enjoy highly detailed 4K HDR content on PG27UQ.

PG27UQ is the first and only gaming monitor with DisplayHDR 1000 certification, the display industry’s fully open standard specifying HDR quality, including luminance, colour gamut, bit depth and rise time that targets not only gaming monitors, but also displays for professionals, enthusiasts and content creators.

PG27UQ is factory pre-calibrated for superior color accuracy with a ΔE (Delta-E) colour difference value of less than 3.0. Featuring an IPS display with quantum dot technology, PG27UQ provides brighterimages and supports professional-grade 97% DCI-P3 / 99% AdobeRGB colour gamut. DCI-P3 has a 25%-wider colour range than sRGB, resulting in more realistic colours and a wide viewing angle.

Show your gaming pride

With exclusive ASUS Aura Sync lighting technology, ROG Swift PG27UQ provides ambient lighting that can be synchronised with a growing RGB ecosystem of Aura Sync-enabled components and peripherals. A built-in ROG Light Signal on the top of its stand lets gamers show their gaming spirit by casting the ROG logo onto the wall, and the Light Signature projection kit allows for the creation and customisation of light effects that can be projected from PG27UQ onto a desktop surface.

Designed for marathon gaming

ROG Swift PG27UQ is designed for marathon gaming. It uses an ambient light sensor to check the light conditions and adjust the brightness levels. The sensor lowers brightness in dark conditions and raises brightness in well-lit conditions. Also, it includes TÜV Rheinland-certified ASUS Ultra-low Blue Light filters and Flicker-free technology to offer protection against harmful blue light and on-screen flicker. Additionally, ROG Swift PG27UQ features a stand that’s ergonomically designed to offer extensive swivel, tilt, and height adjustments — so gaming is always a comfortable experience with an ideal viewing angle.
