Kuala
Lumpur, Malaysia (02nd September 2014)
ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today
announced the immediate availability of Swift PG278Q Gaming Monitor here in
Malaysia. The Swift PG278Q Gaming Monitor is a 27-inch WQHD display with a
144Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time to cater to the graphical requirements
of today’s fast paced games. It boasts gamer-centric features for a better
gameplay experience, NVIDIA®
G-SYNC™ Technology for smooth, fluid visuals, as well as exquisite and
ergonomic design touches.
The world’s first and only WQHD G-SYNC fast gaming
monitor
Designed especially for
gamers, the ROG Swift PG278Q Gaming Monitor features a 27-inch WQHD 2560 x 1440
panel with a pixel density of 109 pixels per inch (PPI). The use of a WQHD
panel gives it four times (4X) the resolution of 720p for sharper images, and provides
77% more screen workspace than similarly-sized 1080p displays.
The PG278Q is ideal
for today’s fast-paced games and delivers fluid visuals thanks to a 144Hz
refresh rate and rapid 1ms response time. Users have the option of selecting
their preferred refresh rates, with the exclusive Turbo key for one-click switching
between 60Hz, 120Hz or 144Hz display modes.
The PG278Q has
built-in NVIDIA G-SYNC technology to deliver the smoothest, fastest and most
breathtaking gaming visuals imaginable. G-SYNC synchronizes the display’s
refresh rate to the GPU in a NVIDIA® GeForce®® GTX™-powered PC,
eliminating screen tearing and minimizing display stutter and input lag.
The
ROG Swift PG278Q Gaming Monitor features the ASUS-exclusive GamePlus hotkey
with crosshair overlay and timer functions. The former gives gamers a choice of
four different crosshairs to suit their gaming environment, while the latter
provides an on-screen timer to help keep track of spawn and build times. An
intuitive 5-way navigation joystick provides quick and easy access to OSD
settings, allowing users to switch display parameters with a flick of a finger.
The PG278Q is designed for marathon gaming sessions, with a smart air vent
design that aids in dissipating heat to keep things cool, even after hours of
use.
The
ROG Swift PG278Q Gaming Monitor includes DisplayPort 1.2 for native WQHD output
and two USB 3.0 ports for convenient pass-through connectivity.
ROG-inspired, ergonomic design
Aesthetically, the ROG
Swift PG278Q uses bold, precise lines to give it an air of durability and
reliability. It features a base adorned with an intricate and enigmatic design
that is fully-illuminated with a special LED Light-in-Motion feature.
The PG278Q features a
slim profile and a super-narrow 6mm bezel that make it ideal for almost-seamless
multi-display setups. An ergonomically-designed stand with tilt, swivel, pivot
and height adjustment gives users a comfortable and ideal viewing position for
long marathon gaming sessions. A cable-management design feature found on the
back of the monitor lets users keep their gaming rigs tidy and free from
tangled wires.
