ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) introduces the ROG Swift PG27UQX with G-SYNC Ultimate, the world’s first gaming monitor with mini LED technology that delivers stunning 4K HDR display with extremely high contrast ratios.
Mini LEDs are physically smaller than displays with conventional LED backlighting and can therefore be packaged more tightly. For example, the ROG Swift uses PG27UQX mini LEDs that are only 200 to 300 microns in size, allowing ROG engineers to integrate 2,304 of these next-generation LEDs into the 27-inch, 3,840 x 2,160 IPS display – a dramatic improvement over its predecessor, the previous flagship ROG Swift PG27UQ. With mini LEDs arranged in 576 different lighting zones, the ROG Swift PG27UQX improves backlight uniformity and increases brightness control granularity.
More precise control of local dimming allows players to enjoy highly detailed HDR images with extremely high contrast ratios. The mini LED technology also reduces the annoying halo effect by up to 33%. The power consumption of the panel itself is also reduced by around seven percent compared to the Swift PG27UQ. The heat output is also lower due to the reduced energy consumption.
The ROG Swift PG27UQX takes over all functions of the Swift PG27UQ, including 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) resolution, overclockable 144Hz repetition frequency, quantum dot technology, Wide DCI-P3 97% and Adobe RGB 99% color space, 1,000 Nits peak brightness, DisplayHDR 1000, NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ Ultimate Support and integrated Aura RGB lighting with Aura Sync support.
The ROG Swift PG27UQX also features a new intelligent fan controller that allows players to adjust fan speeds directly from the display. These controls allow the user to enter the exact speed needed to maintain an ideal temperature without causing unnecessary noise. The display’s dual fans work more efficiently than ever and produce little more than a whisper.
