ASUS unveils ROG Swift Pro, the world’s first 540Hz gaming monitor

The ASUS ROG Swift Pro PG248QP will be the world’s first 540 Hz gaming display. Last year, ASUS unveiled a 500 Hz monitor. The PG248QP features an E-TN display with a refresh rate of up to 540 Hz that is overclocked. The ROG Swift Pro is designed for gamers who may not need high resolution, but who value the speed and low latency of the panel.

ROG Swift Pro has a built-in NVIDIA G-Sync Reflex Analyzer and ESS DAC converter to enable multi-channel sound with virtually no audio lag. The resolution of this monitor is limited to 1920 x 1080; therefore it is only integrated with HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.4. Unlike competing products, such as the Alienware AW2524H, which uses an IPS panel to achieve 480/500Hz(OC) refresh rate, ASUS uses a TN panel. It covers 90% of the DCI-P3 color gamut, but no other data is provided.

ASUS is also showing off the PG27AQDM, which has a 27-inch 1440p OLED panel. ASUS has already released this monitor last month. The 240 Hz refresh rate is an essential feature. ASUS confirms that the thermal design of this monitor has been improved with a custom heatsink and voltage improvements for the panel.

While no dates or prices have been made official today, ASUS claims that both monitors will be made available between Q1 and Q2 of this year.
