Gamescom 2023 is on and brands are on a spree to woo the gamers amongst us. ASUS, in the spirit of this gaming extravaganza, has unveiled the ROG Swift OLED (PG32UCDM). What makes it a showstopper? Well, Asus claims it to be the world’s first gaming monitor to unite a 4K OLED panel with a 240Hz refresh rate, and the brand says it pulls off this feat without the need for overclocking.
The 32in gaming monitor boasts 0.03 GtG response time with support for both AMD FreeSync Premium and Nvidia G-Sync to keep those pesky image tears at bay. ASUS says this panel can hit 1,000 nits of brightness, all thanks to its QD-OLED magic. Although, they're keeping the full brightness specs under wraps for now.
To keep things cool and prevent OLED burn-in, Asus says it has gone the extra mile by fitting this gaming monitor with a tailor-made heat sink and graphene material. The PG32UCDM also comes fully loaded with a KVM switch. Plus, it's got DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.1, and USB Type-C ports. Speaking of USB-C, it also supports USB power delivery.
ASUS also gave us a sneak peek at the 34in ROG Swift (PG34WCDM). This gaming monitor features a curved OLED panel, delivering a 3440x1440 resolution and packing a 240Hz refresh rate and a 0.03ms response time. And 1300 nits of brightness.
It's got AMD Freesync Premium Pro in its arsenal, and word on the street is it might even get the nod as G-Sync compatible, although we're still waiting on the official confirmation. As for when you can get your hands on these beasts, both monitors are slated for a first-half 2024 launch, with pricing details expected to drop at a later date. So, till then, you know what to do, keep stuffing, right!
