Asus ROG Swift PG278Q LCD Monitor Packs Nvidia G-Sync

CES doesn't officially start until tomorrow, but Asus is getting in a little early with the unveiling of its latest monitor. This one is a gaming monitor, so it falls under Asus' Republic of Gamers (ROG) branding. 

The ROG Swift PG278Q packs a 27-inch WQHD panel with a 2560 x 1440 resolution, a super narrow bezel and a 120 Hz refresh. Brightness is 350cd/m2 and response time is 1 ms (GTG). The monitor also incorporates Nvidia's G-SYNC module to eliminate screen tearing and minimize stutter and input lag for GTX-based machines. Connectivity is provided via DisplayPort and two USB 3.0 ports. It also has stereo speakers and a headphone jack.

For those wondering, it's got the usual tilt (approximately +20 degrees and -5 degrees), swivel (+/- roughly 60 degrees), pivot (90 degrees clockwise), and height adjustment (120 mm).

Availability is slated for Q2 at an MSRP of $799.

Stay tuned for more!

    Looks like it's probably a TN panel, which is an epic fail in my opinion. No TN panel is worth $800 in 2014.

    About. Damn. Time.

    I'd take this over any 4K panel right now.
