The ROG SWIFT PG278Q also features GamePlus, an exclusive ASUS feature. GamePlus is an OSD overlay that enables crosshair and timer functions to be displayed on the monitor. Gamers can select from four different crosshair types to suit the gaming environment, while the timer function allows players to track elapsed time in real-time strategy games. These tools allow gamers to practice and improve their gaming skills. The ROG SWIFT PG278Q provides an array of options that include DisplayPort 1.2 for native WQHD output, dual USB 3.0 ports, VESA wall mount capability and a versatile stand with full tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustment for an ideal viewing position while playing the latest game title. The smart cable management feature rids your desktop of tangled wires, while the super narrow 6mm bezel ensures the ROG SWIFT PG278Q is an ideal choice for seamless multi-display gaming setups. Another nod to gamers and improving the user experience is a 5-way joystick that allows the user to easily navigate the OSD and make quick monitor adjustments. The World's First and Fastest WQHD Monitor powered by NVIDIA G-SYNC The ROG SWIFT PG278Q is also the world's first WQHD monitor powered by NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technology. NVIDIA® G-SYNC™, a breakthrough in display technology, synchronizes the display's refresh rates to the GPU. The ROG SWIFT PG278Q eliminates screen tearing, minimizes stutter and input lag to deliver the smoothest gaming experience possible. With G-SYNC™ technology objects look sharper and more vibrant, while gameplay is more fluid and responsive.

 

 


  • WQHD G-SYNC fast gaming monitor

    Designed especially for gamers, the ROG Swift PG278Q gaming monitor features a 27" WQHD panel with a pixel density of 109 pixels per inch (PPI). The use of a WQHD panel gives it four times the resolution of 720p for sharper images, and provides more screen workspace than similarly-sized 1080p displays. The PG278Q is ideal for today's fast-paced games and delivers fluid visuals thanks to a 144 Hz refresh rate and rapid response time. The PG278Q has built-in NVIDIA G-SYNC technology to deliver the smoothest, fastest and most breathtaking gaming visuals imaginable. G-SYNC synchronizes the display's refresh rate to the GPU in a NVIDIA GeForce GTX-powered PC, eliminating screen tearing and minimizing display stutter and input lag.
  • ASUS-exclusive gameplay features and advanced connectivity

    The ROG Swift PG278Q gaming monitor features the ASUS-exclusive GamePlus hotkey with crosshair overlay and timer functions. The former gives gamers a choice of four different crosshairs to suit their gaming environment, while the latter provides an on-screen timer to help keep track of spawn and build times. An intuitive 5-way navigation joystick provides quick and easy access to OSD settings, allowing users to switch display parameters with a flick of a finger. The PG278Q is designed for marathon gaming sessions, with a smart air vent design that aids in dissipating heat to keep things cool, even after hours of use. The ROG Swift PG278Q Gaming Monitor includes DisplayPort 1.2 for native WQHD output and two USB 3.0 ports for convenient pass-through connectivity.
  • ROG-inspired, ergonomic design

    Aesthetically, the ROG Swift PG278Q uses bold, precise lines to give it an air of durability and reliability. It features a base adorned with an intricate and enigmatic design that is fully-illuminated with a special LED Light-in-Motion feature. The PG278Q features a slim profile and a super-narrow bezel that make it ideal for almost-seamless multi-display setups. An ergonomically-designed stand with tilt, swivel pivot and height adjustment gives users a comfortable and ideal viewing position for long marathon gaming sessions.
