ASUS is planning to release at least two new ROG Swift monitors that leverage OLED panels for superior image quality.
As detailed in a new article on the official ROG blog today, they are the 42-inch ROG Swift OLED PG42UQ and 48-inch ROG Swift PG48UQ, both of which feature 4K OLED panels offering refresh rates of up to 120 Hz and 0.1 ms response time. ASUS says that the former represents the world’s first 42-inch OLED gaming monitor.
“These expansive displays will depict gaming worlds in glorious detail with their 4K resolution,” ASUS wrote. “Not only do they deliver deep, inky blacks and dazzling highlights, but they also offer true 10-bit color, covering 98% of the wide DCI-P3 color gamut for vibrant, lifelike images.”
“They’re tuned for accurate colors, as well, as they’re factory-calibrated to achieve a ΔE of less than 2 right out of the box. Whether you’re playing the latest game or kicking back with a movie, you’ll experience your favorite content just as its creator intended.”
Connectivity options of ASUS’s new ROG Swift OLED gaming monitors include a pair of HDMI 2.1 ports, as well as 2x HDMI 2.0 ports, a DisplayPort 1.4 connnector, and a USB hub. ASUS has clarified that these displays can leverage the full 48 Gbps bandwidth of HDMI 2.1, allowing users to avoid chroma subsampling for peak visual quality and razor-sharp text.
