ASUS has packed an awful lot of features into the slim chassis of the ROG Swift PG32UQX, its 32-inch gaming monitor. Not only has ASUS included a 4K panel, but it also has equipped the PG32UQX with a 1,152 zone Mini-LED backlight and a 144 Hz refresh rate. The PG32UQX supports NVIDIA G-Sync Ultimate too, although there is no HDMI 2.1 on board.

It has been a while since ASUS unveiled the ROG Swift PG32UQX, but it seems that the monitor is finally on the verge of being released. ASUS announced the PG32UQX in January at CES 2020, but it went quiet on the monitor thereafter. However, Chinese retailer Taobao listed the PG32UQX, albeit briefly, confirming several specifications and details.

As its name suggests, the PG32UQX is a 32-inch monitor. It has a 10-bit panel with 4 ms grey-to-grey response times and a contrast ratio of 1,000:1. ASUS has certified the monitor as VESA DisplayHDR 1400 compliant, meaning that it has a maximum luminosity of 1,400 nits in HDR mode. The panel also possesses a 1,152 zone Mini-LED backlight and operates natively at 4K (3,840 x 2,160 pixels). ASUS also promises a DCI-P3 colour accuracy of over 90%.

The PG32UQX supports NVIDIA G-Sync Ultimate, 144 Hz and Ultra Low Motion Blur Reduction (ULMB), underlining its gaming credentials. ASUS has clarified that the monitor does not have an HDMI 2.1 port though, despite marketing materials claiming that it does. Consequently, the PG32UQX must make do with HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.4.

According to TFT Central, the PG32UQX will begin shipping in January 2021. Taobao listed the monitor for CNY 42,999 (~US$6,400), but Gizmochina claims that ASUS intended to price the PG32UQX at US$3,599. However, TFT Central states that ASUS is yet to announce any official pricing, so we imagine that Taobao included a placeholder for the time being.
