Asus has prepared a lot of surprises for the coming year, and one of them is a gaming screen from the Republic of Gamers series that contains some of the most sought-after features on the market.
The model is ROG Swift PG27UQ. This is an 27-sized gaming screen with a resolution of 4k, Or 3840X2160. So far everything is good and beautiful, and even still considered quite advanced, only this time this screen is equipped with a panel IPS High-quality, plus capable of operating at a peak frequency of 144 Hz for this resolution.
The cherry on the cake is that the PG27UQ also contains G-SYNC technology NVIDIA, So for the first time we see a screen that contains the Holy Trinity of resolution-speed-quality. Remember, G-SYNC allows you to fully synchronize the rate of images per second that the computer produces to the screen and the screen refresh rate, thus preventing image ripping and smoothing. This is, of course, support for video card users from home NVIDIA.
This screen is not yet offered for mass sale, since there are some more tests and changes that it needs to pass on -ASUS. The price of the PG27UQ is also not final, but considering previous products in the series, expect a price tag of at least $ 1,500.
Another interesting feature that contains the PG27UQ (it does not end with G-SYNC) is HDR Or High Dynamic Range that allows for more vivid colors and real black and natural colors instead of the bright gray we know on standard screens.
Thus, it seems that we have finally reached a point where the screen has all (or at least most) of the features required of the competitive and affluent gamer. Of course running new games in 4K at a rate of 144 frames per second is a task with an almost impossible requirement today. We can consider an array of two cards NVIDIA TITAN X as the minimum requirement, which you will have to pay about 10,000.
We would also like to see a reduced version that supports AMD's FreeSync, as it is a technology that does not require a license and expensive components such as those on the side of NVIDIA. What do you think about this screen? Will we soon see screens with similar features at a significantly lower price? With a number of competitors in the market, only time will tell.
