Asus' latest external monitor is aimed at eSports players, with its 360 Hz refresh rate, 1 ms grey-to-grey response times and NVIDIA G-Sync support. The 24.5-inch IPS panel supports HDR10 too and has the not-so-catchy name of the ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN.

In January, Asus unveiled the ROG Swift 360, the world's first 360 Hz and G-Sync external display. Announced as a partnership with NVIDIA, Asus has now released the monitor as the ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN. Naturally, the re-named external monitor retains its 360 Hz refresh rate and 1 ms grey-to-grey response times.

The panel itself measures 24.5-inches and operates at 1,920 x 1,080 pixels in a 16:9 aspect ratio. The PG259QN still supports NVIDIA G-Sync, but AMD FreeSync support is missing. Asus boasts that the monitor has a 1,000:1 contrast ratio too and claims that it can reach 400 cd/m² of brightness. Additionally, the PG259QN can display HDR10 content.

Asus has equipped the PG259QN with an HDMI 2.0 port and a DisplayPort 1.4 connection, along with a 3.5 mm jack for connecting headphones and speakers. Two USB 3.0 ports are onboard, also. The integrated stand features a cut-out for cable management, which is a nice touch. Sadly, Asus is yet to announce any pricing or availability details for the ROG Swift PG259QN.
