CES 2020 | Asus and NVIDIA team-up to showcase the ROG Swift 360 — the world's first 360 Hz G-Sync display
NVIDIA kickstarted its CES 2020 sojourn by unveiling the world's first 360 Hz G-Sync display built in collaboration with Asus — the ROG Swift 360, which is specifically designed with competitive eSports gaming in mind.
We've seen 300 Hz laptop displays from Asus and Acer before but the ROG Swift 360 is the first to hit 360 Hz. The ROG Swift 360 is a 24.5-inch FHD display featuring an AU Optronics panel and an advanced G-Sync processor. According to NVIDIA, a 360 Hz refresh rate offers extremely low latency that allows for better accuracy in competitive eSports titles such as CS:GO. The G-Sync variable refresh rate (VRR) eliminates any tearing or stuttering artifacts for a smooth motion.
Does 360 Hz really benefit gamers? Five-time CS:GO champion Jonathan "n0thing" Gilbert feels 360 Hz does have a positive impact on the overall targeting, mechanics, and competitiveness for fast-paced FPS titles. NVIDIA will be showing off quite a few eSports demos at CES as to how 360 Hz can improve target acquisition, aiming, and perception for gamers.
NVIDIA says that the eSports gaming market continues to grow at a "phenomenal rate" with US$211 million in prize money being awarded in 2019 and more than 450 million viewers watching live eSports tournaments online.
