CES 2020: ASUS ROG Swift PG32UQX G-SYNC Ultimate Monitor
The ROG Swift PG32UQX Is a 1400-Nit, 1152-Zone Powerhouse
Along with the ROG Swift 360Hz G-SYNC display ASUS has announced a “mere” 144Hz option in the ROG Swift PG32UQX monitor, but there’s a lot more going on here besides that refresh rate.
A 32-inch display with a 10-bit 4K (3840×2160) panel, the PG32UQX is DisplayHDR 1400 compliant thanks to a mini-LED panel backlight with 1400 nits peak brightness. And to ensure the maximum impact of HDR content, there are no fewer than 1152 zones of dynamic local dimming. Oh, and it’s NVIDIA G-SYNC Ultimate certified. No big deal.
The ROG Swift PG32UQX is the ultimate 4K high-dynamic-range (HDR) gaming monitor. Featuring an advanced G-SYNC ULTIMATE processor with the latest HDR features, the 16:9 display is illuminated by a full-array local dimming backlight with 1152 Mini LED zones that let the PG32UQX display the brightest highlights and darkest blacks of a scene with incredible contrast and minimal haloing. Small highlights in games, like light bulbs or the disc of the sun, can reach peak brightness of up to 1400 nits, offering a more lifelike HDR experience than ever before. The Mini-LED backlight can also turn off as needed when it comes to darker scenes.
The G-SYNC processor drives variable refresh rates up to 144Hz, and support for 10-bit color throughout the refresh rate range ensures that the PG32UQX always shows off games, movies, and desktop applications at their best. With NVIDIA G-SYNC technology, users will enjoy smooth, tear-free gameplay, even when frame rates fall below the PG32UQX’s peak 144Hz refresh rate, and with the incredibly capable panel and backlight inside, the PG32UQX is NVIDIA G-SYNC ULTIMATE-certified. All G-SYNC ULTIMATE-certified displays undergo a rigorous validation process and are subjected to 300 image quality tests to ensure they deliver consistent quality and maximum performance.
The PG32UQX is also designed to be a productive companion outside of games, offering DisplayHDR 1400 compliance for other entertainment needs. For those who want to use all of the screen size available from a 4K resolution, the 32-inch diagonal expanse of the PG32UQX offers a pixel density better suited to running a Windows desktop without scaling.
As with the ROG Swift 360 G-SYNC, ASUS states that the ROG Swift PG32UQX monitor “will be available later this year, with pricing to be announced closer to availability”.
