PG27UQ is built for gaming enthusiasts and pro-gamers, and is designed to take gaming visuals to a whole new level.
4K UHD visuals with a 144Hz refresh rate

Fast-moving visuals pose no problem for PG27UQ thanks to an ultra-fast 144Hz refresh rate. This results in silky-smooth gameplay with no frustrating lag or motion blur, so gamers get the upper hand in first-person shooters, racing, real-time strategy and sports titles.
ROG Swift PG27UQ features two DisplayPort 1.4 and one HDMI port for 4K UHD content playback and versatile connectivity.
High Dynamic Range and Quantum Dot technologies
NVIDIA® G-SYNC High Dynamic Range (HDR) monitors offer a range of luminance that is closer to what the human eye can experience, and offer a wider color range than traditional monitors. ROG Swift PG27UQ features G-SYNC HDR technology for a peak brightness several times greater than standard displays for stunning, vivid visuals. The LED backlight is dynamically controlled across 384 zones, enabling very high contrast for richer, more natural dark scenes.
Quantum-dot technology provides brighter images and supports the cinema-standard DCI-P3 color gamut. DCI-P3 has a 25%-wider color range than sRGB, resulting in more realistic colors.
In-plane switching (IPS) technology also gives PG27UQ wide viewing angles so there is no color shift even when viewing the monitor from extreme positions.
NVIDIA G-SYNC technology
NVIDIA G-SYNC and HDR technologies deliver super smooth, tear-free visuals and the most breathtaking and responsive HDR gaming imaginable with incredible contrast, deep saturated colors, and stunning brightness.
