The ROG SWIFT monitor is designed with gaming in mind. As the title suggests, it’s a 27” display with WQHD (Wide Quad HD – or 4x720) resolution @ 2560x1440. It has a clean, thin bezel and G-SYNC readiness. If you’re not familiar with NVidia G-SYNC, it’s a relatively new technology that enables the GPU to communicate with the monitor to effectively eliminate screen tearing and improve frame drawing on-screen.
The monitor also has a competitive 120+ Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time (GTG), 0.233 pixel pitch (the distance between the center of two pixels), and a 350cd/m^2 brightness. Concerning connectivity it has DisplayPort 1.2 and 2xUSB 3.0 ports. As one of ASUS’ ROG monitors, it does include their GamePlus feature set – for choosing crosshairs – and finally, for those of you who must have your monitor adjusted just right, they’ve included full ergonomic adjustability.

The 4K counterpart has many of the same features, but lacks G-SYNC compatibility. Its resolution comes in at the expected 3840x2160 (Ultra HD) and it offers HDMI and MHL connectors. It also offers a pair of integrated speakers.

Now comes the expected sticker shock. The PG278Q & PB287Q ROG monitors are both initially listing at $800 USD MSRP with a release date of Q2 2014. While that is a lot of monitor, we’re not sure if it’s enough monitor to warrant dishing out that much cash. However, if you’re thinking about building a super rig any time soon, it does pose a pretty seductive option to use in multi-monitor setup with its thin bezel design. Keep in mind that you’d need a pretty stout graphics solutions to drive that many pixels on 2, 3, or n of those monitors.
We’ll be posting from CES 2014 all week, so keep checking back for more news. As always, drop us a comment or question if you’d like us to ask some of the companies some specific questions. We’ll do our best to bring CES back home to you.

Asus Rog Monitors
Not sure if this is posted in the right section but I have a question about monitoring hardware temps etc.
On my old Crosshair setup I used HWMonitor and HWMonTray with a HWMon gadget to monitor the CPU core and motherboard temperatures as well as fan speeds, core utilisation.
I know the Crosshair V comes with the ASUS AI Suite that does the same thing but it was handy having a gadget with this information to view.
Is there a gadget that works with AI Suite? or is there no issue with running the AI Suite and HWMonitor together? The old Crosshair would suffer from lockups when the two were running.
