Asus G-Sync Display Announced: 24 Inches 180 Hz Refresh rate
Asus just seem to be giving the people better and better products with their Republic of Gamers and Strix ranges. They recently announced their Strix GTX 1060 and now they have announced the Asus G-Sync display. I guess this would be the next best move as the GTX 1060 is a great GPU and good value for money as well.
After the release of the GTX 1060 and the release of the Strix edition coming up with a great Asus G-Sync Display does seem like a good move forward. How people react to this is another story for another article but for now we are going to concentrate on the Asus G-Sync display and that alone.
It is an Asus G-Sync Display so that means Nvidia. If you already have a 10 series GPU for an older generation Nvidia GPU then this display will tag along well with your graphics card.
The Asus ROG Swift PG248Q is a 24 inch, 1080p gaming display. What is different about this display you ask? Well, you know how you can overclock your CPU and GPU? You can overclock this Asus G-Sync display as well. With this overclock you can get a very high refresh rate of 180 Hz. Which is something we do not see every day.
The default speed refresh rate is 144 Hz and if you want to overclock this Asus G-Sync display you are going to need a series 10 GPU by Nvidia. The GTX 1060 being the cheapest and this being a 1080p display I believe that match would be the best of them all. If you have a 1070 or 1080 I believe you would be wasting your time with 1080p and would be going with something more, 1440p for example.
The Asus G-Sync Display has the following features:
- DisplayPort 1.3
- High refresh rates
- WLED-backlit TN panel
- Contrast ratio of 1000:1
- Brightness of 350 nits
- G-Sync variable refresh technology
There is no word from Asus about how much this will cost you but we will find out soon enough.
