During the company's Republic of Gamers event at Computex 2016, ASUS officially announced the release of the ROG Swift PG248Q monitor. Though we have seen it teased previously, today's information release has some interesting new details.
Based on a 24-inch 1920×1080 TN panel, the PG248Q was specifically built for gamers that desire a smaller display, to avoid being forced to move their head to find a specific target. The idea here is that eSports players, and those aspiring, need to have the entire monitor in their field of view at all times.
The small size and 1080p resolution don't mean the display is devoid of impressive features though. It is a G-Sync monitor, so gamers can enjoy tear-free, smooth gaming with GeForce graphics cards as well as a 180Hz refresh rate! Add to that combination a rated response time of 1ms (grey to grey) and you have an incredibly high performance gaming panel.
The PG248Q will be the official display of some impressive gaming events including the ESL One 2016 and The International 2016, so I expect ASUS to have a ground swell of interest in this model.
No specifics on pricing or availability quite yet, but I've put in the requests accordingly.

Lol WOW!!! A long time ago I saw a TV that said 60.0Hz. And I thought yo myself, what kind of idiot would fall for that and think that the 60Hz is actually 600Hz.
Long time, but question was answered.
Guess who is the idiot? 😉
This is almost perfect,
This is almost perfect, except it’s TN and not IPS.

This is a 24″ because it’s targeting competitive (or wanna be) gamers. Of course it’s not an IPS. No competitive gamer is gonna want to be on an IPS with a slight delay / ghosting even though they look gorgeous. I have both an IPS and TN and you can bet I use the IPS for windows apps and teh tN for gaming.
Which is still not perfect in
Which is still not perfect in a darkened room if you want less washed out blacks…

Gamers have become so lazy in 2016 that they want to avoid using their neck muscles. Thanks ASUS for stereotyping us even more.
This only means that PC
This only means that PC gamers are old enough to buy Viagra. :o)

“Gamers have become so lazy…”
Wow, you obviously don’t know much about competitive gaming then.
Here, absorb this:
“The human brain can interpret images that the EYE sees in just 13 milliseconds.”
“This rapid-fire processing may help direct the EYES, which shift their gaze THREE TIMES PER SECONDS, to their next target.”
Keep on using your neck muscles…lol
ANYONE that has access to these companies, PLEASE tell them that 4k on small/tiny little 27″ screens is not all people want, 4k means you can go BIGGER without comically large pixel sizes, we want 40-43″ desktop monitors at 4k, with 120Hz, and HDR if they can manage it.
There is a wasabi mango 40″ 4k model with freesync on amazon going for mid 500s, is it SOOOOOOO Difficult to up the screen size on TOP of more gaming focused characteristics?
Why? I don’t have the power or contacts to get in touch with these people, but Ryan and staff, YOU DO !!!!!!!
You are like one step away from the CEO of any company, use that power to do what I cannot, TELL them what we want.
There is a clip at the end of a 40″ 4k monitor review that is telling from this guy.
And he’s just talking about work, for gaming it will be even better, same goes for the normal media consumption like youtube and other media viewing.
Stop crying about the size of
Stop crying about the size of UHD screens you cannot afford…
UHD means Ultra High Definition which is all about pixel density.
