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.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
