ASUS is tagging the ROG Swift OLED PG27AQDM as the “endgame” monitor. Looking at its specs, this might be the case for some. It sports a 27-inch 2560 x 1440 OLED panel running at 240Hz – far faster than their first OLED gaming monitor, the ROG Swift OLED PG48UQ.
To ensure the longevity of the panel, ASUS is using a custom heatsink for its heat-generating components as well as a new internal layout for improved cooling. The company says that it can reduce temperatures by up to 5% lower when compared to other 27-inch gaming monitors.
Pixel luminance is kept consistent with intelligent voltage optimization that controls the amount of voltage applied. ROG has worked closely with its panel maker to determine the correlation between OLED brightness, voltage level, and operational temperature. A smart algorithm for the panel optimizes voltage based on temperature changes to ensure consistent brightness across the panel.
Aside from its speed and OLED panel, the monitor also sports HDR performance with a peak of around 1000 nits, 99% DCI-P3 coverage and Delta E < 2 color accuracy. Users will be able to tinker with the screen with the new DisplayWidget Center without using the OSD.
Price and Availability
The ROG Swift OLED PG27AQDM is expected to arrive in the market this Q1 2023. Pricing is yet to be unveiled. More information should be available when we near its expected launch date.
