Asus unveils the 4K UHD ROG Swift PG27UQX Mini-LED gaming monitorAsus ROG Swift PG27UQX is a 27-inch 4K UHD Mini-LED gaming monitor with a maximum 144Hz maximum refresh rate thanks to NVIDIA's G-Sync tech. This the company's first gaming monitor that utilizes Mini LEDs to enable 576 distinct zones for a more granular localized backlight dimming. More zones make it possible to illuminate smaller objects without bright light bleeding all over dark scenes. The expected brightness is around 1000 cd/m2. The monitor employs a quantum-dot IPS panel which covers 99% of the Adobe RGB colour space and 97% of the DCI-P3 gamut. Each monitor is also calibrated at the factory to guarantee an average Delta-E of less than three, so every unit is optimized to ensure its output closely matches the colours it receives as input. The ROG Swift PG27UQX features RGB lighting and Aura Sync support so you can tie the color and effects to other Aura Sync-compatible components. Another ROG logo built into the stand projects light onto the desk below, and the monitor comes bundled with a blank cover so you can design a custom logo to splash across your space. The monitor is showcased at Computex 2019 in Taipei. Asus will announce full specs, prices and availability at a later stage.Source
