The ASUS ROG Swift PG349Q is a 34-inch, 21:9 Ultra-wide monitor with a resolution of 3440x1440. The OEM claims that these specs give 35% more desktop space compared to a WQHD panel. More to the point, however, this new monitor can be clocked between 100 and 120 hertz.

ASUS has unveiled a new ROG-line monitor on its website. This new model is called the ROG Swift PG349Q, and is thus a successor to the pre-existing PG348Q. This panel distinguishes itself through overclockability: it is shipped at 100 hertz (Hz); however, this refresh rate can also be boosted to a maximum of 120Hz.

The ASUS ROG Swift PG349Q has an ultra-wide form factor and measures 34 inches diagonally. It has a 21:9 aspect-ratio; however, the OEM has also stretched its resolution to 3440 by 1440. This, according to its manufacturer, gives it up to 35% more real-estate compared to a conventional 2560x1440 monitor.

The ROG Swift PG349Q is also a 1900R display, thus implying the possibility of more immersive gaming. It also supports G-SYNC, blue-light filters and various Aura Sync ambient-lighting modes. ASUS claims that its hidden I/O ports (a 3.5mm jack, HDMI v1.4, 2xUSB 3.0s and a 1.2 DisplayPort housed along its central supporting column) and advanced cable management will help the PG349Q fit into any set-up.

ASUS does not offer any pricing or availability information on the ROG Swift PG349Q at present. However, judging from the starting price of the PG348Q, it may fall into US$999 territory. Is it worth it? Any thoughts on this new monitor are welcome in the comments below.
