Asus unveils ROG Swift PG258Q gaming monitor with 240 Hz refresh rate
Designed specifically for hardcore gamers and professional eSports players, the 24.5-inch 1080p monitor includes super-narrow bezels, 1 ms response times, Nvidia 3D Vision 2 support, removable back plates, and customizable LED lights.
According to Asus, the ROG PG258Q is optimized for competitive online play and fast first-person shooters. Core specifications include:
24.5-inch 1080p display w/ Nvidia G-Sync
240 Hz refresh rate
1 ms response time w/ Nvidia ultra low-blur technology
The monitor incorporates customizable lights and very thin bezels that make it perfect for multi-monitor setups. The rear ROG logo cover is removable for users to create or 3D print their own styles.
The onscreen menu is controlled via a 5-way joystick with 6 preset display settings optimized for specific game types. For example, preset settings include those for racing games, first-person shooters, RTS, and video playback.
Lastly, the monitor will be compatible with Nvidia 3D Vision 2. Users must pair the Asus monitor with a compatible GeForce GPU and a set of 3D glasses. Nvidia 3D Lightboost technology promises a brighter 3D image during playback without necessarily increasing the power requirement of the monitor.
Retail prices for the ROG PG258Q are expected to start at just under 620 Euros. See the official product page below for more details and specifications.
