ASUS has finally made their new top-of-the-line gaming monitor, dubbed as ROG Swift PG278Q, available in APAC and Europe markets, and is immediately looking to lure in gamers with its 27-inch WQHD panel, not to mention support for NVidia G-Sync and 3D-Vision.
Touted as the “First and Only WQHD G-Sync fast gaming monitor”, the ROG Swift PG278Q was quite the head-turner during this year’s CES because it offers extra features that one wouldn’t typically see on an ordinary gaming monitor.
For starters, this 27-inch monitor boasts a 2560×1440 resolution with a wide viewing angle that’s said to range from 160-degree up to 170. In addition to that, this sleek monitor features a 1ms GTG response time and its Refresh Rate can go as high as 144Hz.
ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q specs:
Screen Size: 27-inch
Aspect Ratio: 16:9
Resolution: WQHD, 2560×1440
Brightness: 350 cd/m2
Display Colors: 16.7 million
Viewing Angle: 160-170°

As you would expect from monitors with this kind of feature set, the SRP isn’t going to be wallet-friendly to say the least. That being said, if you’re eyeing the ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q, prepare to shell out an eye-watering USD799 for it.
Update: According to an ASUS spokesperson, the monitor will be available locally around the midway point of September and will be sold for Php45,000.
