Asus ROG Swift PG348Q monitor in the shops

by on05 February 2016

Ultra-wide 34-inch curved display

Asus ROG Swift PG348Q is finally hitting the shops after attracting attention at Taiwan’s Computex technology trade show last year.

The Monitor is an ultra-wide 34-inch curved display with a 3,440 x 1,440 pixel resolution, This gives it a 21:9 aspect ratio.

Its IPS panel has a 5ms response time and 100-percent sRGB colour gamut, in addition to a 1000:1 contrast ratio and 10-bit colour for each of 1.07 billion hues.

The high-end monitor uses Nvidia’s G-Sync technology to eliminate screen tearing and minimise display stutter and input lag.

The PG348Q comes with all the ports you can point a stick at – HDMI, DisplayPort 1.2, and four USB 3.0 ports, basically everything you need for your gaming PC.

It weighs 11.1kg and measures 829 x 558 x 297 mm

An ASUS spokesman said:

“ROG Swift PG348Q is a 34-inch gaming monitor with an Ultra-Wide QHD (3,440 x 1,440) panel that gives users highly detailed visuals and more onscreen space than WQHD monitors. Its ultra-wide 21:9 aspect curved display provides an immersive panoramic gaming experience. The panel curvature of the display ensures every point is equidistant to the user’s eyes to ensure a comfortable viewing experience during marathon gaming sessions.”

Design-wise, it looks  a curved monitor, but then there is so much you can do with this sort of thing. ASUS did its best – there is an Armor Titanium and Plasma Copper colour scheme, along with a “frameless” design and “ROG light effects.”

You can overclock the monitor’s refresh rates to 100Hz with Asus’ built-in Turbo functionality.

Needless to say it costs a lot, $1,460 and will be in the shops by the end of the month.
