Asus ROG G-Sync Monitor: Another Look at an Award Winner

Asus' ROG Swift PG278Q is a 27-inch display with a 2560 x 1440 native resolution at 120 Hz. Yes, we're still talking about a TN panel. However, display quality in Asus' suite was markedly better than the engineering sample that our own Chris Angelini tested for his launch coverage. The panel uses Nvidia's G-SYNC module to eliminate screen tearing and minimize stutter and input lag for GTX-based machines.

The ROG Swift PG278Q is big, fast, and perfect for the gamer with a compatible GPU, all for $800. We awarded this bad boy a Best of CES award (you can check out the rest of them here), but figured you might want a closer look at this beast.

  • I am not surprised that a TN panel from Asus is superb quality. I have 2 VS248h-P monitors I use for work, LED, and they are beautiful in quality. Asus is a company much like Corsair, they both make the best quality they can for their respective markets. It is why I tend to get Asus motherboards and am looking at the Asus R9 290X DCUII right now once the price drops.The GSync is a great idea. Honestly I can see it being something they could easily integrate onto a GPU as a co-processor, much like the old add-on math co-processors for CPUs. And with time I could see it being integrated into the GPU itself.Of course this is a start, much like any technology which needs to start somewhere but soon we will see thing for AMD and NVidia helping improve our 3D gaming performance as always.

  • Asus, shut up and take my money! I've been waiting for something like this for years, and this is even better than I expected. I've been googling for more news on it every day since rumors about it first started popping up.

    This thing is going to have at least as good image quality as my BenQ XL2420T, which rivals a lot of the lower end IPS screens. Absolutely going to be buying one of these, and then updating my system in about a year to a Skylake based system with a closed loop convection cooler like the new Swiftech H220X and a dual-maxwell GPU, all crammed into a mini-itx box.
