Computex 2023 | ASUS ROG Swift PG38UQ showcased with 38-inch, 4K and 144 Hz panel
ASUS has introduced a few high-end gaming monitors of late, such as the ROG Swift OLED PG49WDCD. Now, the company has presented the ROG Swift PG38UQ at Computex 2023. Debuting alongside the ROG Strix XG259QN, the ROG Swift PG38UQ is expected to launch in Q3 2023. ASUS has not revealed ROG Swift PG38UQ pricing or full availability yet, but it has outlined various specifications.
As the screenshot below shows, the ROG Swift PG38UQ features a 38-inch IPS panel, advertised as Fast IPS because of its 1 ms response times (GtG). Additionally, the gaming monitor supports AMD FreeSync Premium Pro and NVIDIA G-SYNC to minimise image tearing, which is particularly useful when gaming at high frame rates. For reference, the ROG Swift PG38UQ peaks at 144 Hz and runs natively at 4K (3,840 x 2,160) in a 16:9 aspect ratio.
While a DisplayPort 1.4 connection makes 4K/144 Hz gaming possible, HDMI 2.1 will restrict the ROG Swift PG38UQ to 120 Hz at 4K. ASUS also mentions that the gaming monitor is VESA DisplayHDR 600 certified, meaning that it has 10-bit image processing, peaks at 600 nits when viewing HDR content and is colour accurate. To that end, the ROG Swift PG38UQ covers 98% of the DCI-P3 colour space.
