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.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
