The search may be over for PC gamers who have been looking for an OLED display that isn’t a large TV and/or comes with a flat, rather than curved, panel. According to posts that can be found on the OLED_Gaming subreddit, ASUS has released the ROG Swift OLED PG27AQD, its first ROG 1440p OLED gaming monitor with “endgame” features that include a 0.03 ms response time; 240 Hz refresh rate; anti-glare, micro-texture coating; and custom heat sink. The monitor is reportedly available from Micro Center for $999, although the “bigger is better” crowd have been quick to advise that those with the desk space might as well just get an OLED TV for that price.


  • 26.5-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) OLED gaming monitor with 240 Hz refresh rate and 0.03 ms response time for immersive gaming
  • Highly efficient custom heatsink, plus intelligent voltage optimization for better heat management to reduce the risk of burn-in
  • High perceptual 1000 nits peak brightness (3% of the screen with HDR on), 99% DCI-P3 gamut, and Delta E < 2 color difference for astonishing HDR performance
  • Optional uniform brightness setting ensures consistent luminance levels
  • DisplayWidget Center enables easy OLED and monitor settings adjustments with a mouse

From an ASUS press release:

This 27-inch WQHD (2560 x 1440) OLED gaming monitor features an anti-glare micro-texture coating, 0.03 ms response time, and 240 Hz refresh rate to deliver superfast frame rates for truly immersive gaming. To ensure OLED longevity, the Swift OLED PG27AQDM includes a custom heatsink for heat-generating components and a new internal layout to improve cooling. Internal airflow has been optimized, and the top air vents are larger for better heat dissipation. With heat being dissipated more evenly across the rear of the monitor, the average temperature is 5% lower compared to other 27-inch gaming monitors.

Intelligent voltage optimization ensures consistent luminance for each pixel by controlling the amount of voltage applied to it. ROG worked closely with the panel maker to determine the correlation between OLED brightness, voltage level, and operational temperature. A smart algorithm coded for the panel optimizes voltage based on temperature changes to ensure consistent brightness across the panel.

A uniform brightness feature keeps the brightness level consistent even when changing the size of bright white windows. Additionally, the new DisplayWidget Center software lets users tinker with OLED-related functions and system settings via an intuitive interface, without having to fiddle with the OSD.

This monitor delivers astonishing HDR performance and a peak brightness of 1000 nits. 99% DCI-P3 gamut and Delta E < 2 color accuracy ensures exceptional, lifelike colors, with the Swift OLED PG27AQDM able to showcase the darkest black hues along with high perceptual brightness. The Swift OLED PG27AQDM will be available in Q1 2023.

The Swift Pro PG248QP is a 24.1-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) gaming monitor designed for pro gamers, and breaks speed records with an ultrafast 540 Hz (OC) refresh rate. It sports a unique look and features an ergonomic stand with retractable ‘claws’ for a smaller base, to free up desktop space for players who prefer their keyboard and mouse closer to the monitor. A built-in NVIDIA G-SYNC processor includes NVIDIA Reflex Analyzer to capture end-to-end system latency so gamers will know how their system is performing. A built-in ESS USB codec provides near-zero audio latency, and includes surround sound as well as in-game gunshot and footstep enhancements.
