Asus is once again expanding its excellent Republic of Gamers Swift line of monitors with a new 24-inch offering equipped with G-Sync and an ultra-fast 180Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time. The ROG Swift PG248Q promises seamless visuals and super-smooth gameplay thanks to its variable refresh rate capabilities and low response times.
This is a 16:9 24-inch monitor running at the still popular 1920×1080 resolution. Adding that to the 180Hz refresh rate and this could be one of the best monitors for competitive gamers. In-fact, Asus designed this monitor specifically with eSports and high-level competitive gaming in mind. This will also be the official monitor of Valve’s The International 2016 Dota 2 tournament and ESL One Cologne 2016.
This monitor also comes with some of Asus’s usual exclusive features, like the crosshair overlay, an onscreen timer to help keep track of how smoothly games are running, an FPS counter and a display alignment function that provides visual aid to help you line up a multi-monitor set up properly.
Finally, in terms of connectivity, this monitor has DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI, and some USB 3.0 ports with pass-through connectivity and quick-charging for smartphones. The ROG Swift PG248Q will be available from July for £399.99.
KitGuru Says: This certainly looks like a nice monitor and that refresh rate will garner lots of interest from the competitive gaming audience. It is quite a pricey 1080p monitor though. What do you guys think of the latest monitor from Asus? Do any of you own an ROG Swift monitor already?
