Asus ROG Swift OLED PG27AQDM Specs: Design, Display, Refresh Rate, and Response Time

Talking of specs, this gaming monitor features an ideal 27-inch OLED display that comes with a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels and a considerably higher 240Hz refresh rate. Besides, it has a response time of 0.03ms, so yes it’s pretty fast. Please note that the ideal response time we have seen in gaming monitors in the past has been around 0.1ms. This OLED monitor has next to no bezels whereas the screen uses an anti-glare Micro-Texture coating. As far as color technology is concerned, the ROG Swift OLED PG27 comes with a 99% DCI-P3 & 135% sRGB coverage with a pre-calibrated Delta E < 2. Let’s not forget that the peak brightness of this gaming monitor can go up to 1000 nits with HDR enabled. Since OLEDs can run pretty hot at times, Asus has also incorporated a custom heatsink that will dissipate the heat. This will help prevent OLED burn-ins down the line. Further, the monitor is complemented with a bulky stand and Asus’ RGB logo at the back.

Our Thoughts

Asus’ latest gaming monitor seems to hit the sweet spot as a 240Hz refresh rate is more than sufficient. Gone are the days 60Hz used to be the standard, these days most gaming monitors come with at least a 120Hz or 144Hz refresh rate. Also, the 27-inch flat display means users can comfortably place it on any desk, without needing a full-sized gaming station to utilize the display. Since it is not a curved monitor, more eSports cameras are likely to consider it for their gaming journey.

That said, time will tell whether Asus has lived up to what it promised for the gamers at CES 2023. If you have a gamer friend or someone who loves following such topics, make sure to share this news with them.
