The ROG SWIFT PG278Q represents the pinnacle of gaming displays,

This 27-inch WQHD 2560 × 1440 gaming monitor packs in nearly every feature a gamer
could ask for. An incredible 144Hz refresh rate and a rapid response time of 1ms eliminate
lag and motion blur, while an exclusive Turbo key allows you to select refresh rates of 60Hz,
120Hz or 144Hz with just one press. The ROG SWIFT contains integrated NVIDIA® G-SYNC™
technology to synchronize the display's refresh rate to the GPU. This technology eliminates
screen tearing, while minimizing display stutter and input lag to give you the smoothest,
fastest and most breathtaking gaming visuals imaginable. Connectivity is simple, yet robust,
with a single DisplayPort 1.2 port to enable NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ and dual USB 3.0 ports for convenience.
ASUS-exclusive GamePlus Technology enhances your gaming experience further by
providing you with crosshair overlays for FPS games and multiple in-game timers for RTS/MOBA games.
The ROG Swift has a super-narrow 6mm bezel that begs this monitor to be used in multi-display
gaming set-ups. With VESA wall mount capability and an ergonomic stand designed with full tilt,
swivel, pivot and height adjustments, the ROG SWIFT is ready for long gaming in session comfort.
The ROG SWIFT PG278Q represents the next generation in gaming displays. This WQHD

RGB matrices per inch. This gives you the benefits of greater image detail and up to 77% more
onscreen desktop space than standard Full HD (1920 x 1080) displays. These minor details add
up to give you a major in-game advantage.
