Following on from Nvidia's BFGD announcement earlier this morning, Asus has officially announced its ROG Swift PG65 Big Format Gaming Display. When Nvidia announced BFGD, we knew that Asus, Acer and HP would be among the first companies to bring out displays supporting this and now, we know what Asus's ROG Swift version will look like, alongside its spec.
The Asus ROG Swift PG65 is a 65-inch 4K big format gaming display, featuring Nvidia G-Sync technology, a 120Hz refresh rate and a wide DCI-P3 color gamut. It comes with a direct-lit full array LED backlight with 1000-nit peak luminance to properly display high contrast and HDR images.
As you would expect from a gaming-oriented display, the ROG Swift PG65 comes with a low latency response time to eliminate input lag. The addition of G-Sync will remove screen tearing and the 120Hz refresh rate will result in an ultra-smooth PC gaming experience- assuming you have the graphics power required for 4K at 120Hz.
The DCI-P3 color gamut is 25 percent wider than sRGB, so you can expect better colors compared to a traditional 27-inch gaming monitor. Finally, the PG65 has a 178 degree wide-view panel, so viewing angles should be good if you are sat off center, or have this set up in a living room with multiple people watching.
We'll get the chance to see the ROG Swift PG65 in action at CES this week. There is still no pricing or release date, but we'll try our best to get some information out there.
KitGuru Says: I've always wanted a proper gaming TV and these Big Format Gaming Displays seem to be the solution to that. We still need some pricing information, but I imagine they'll be over the £2000 mark, which will put them out of reach for many. What do you guys think of these new Big Format Gaming Displays?
