ASUS releases pricing and release date of their PG27UQ G-Sync HDR monitor

G-Sync HDR is finally coming, after a year of delays, production issues and quiet murmuring. ASUS has finally revealed the pricing and release timeframe for their ROG Swift PG27UQ display, combining an HDR10 capable 4K Quantum Dot display with 144Hz G-Sync technology to create one of the market's most complex monitors.  

The specifications of this display area already well known within hardware circles, using an AU Optronics 27-inch HDR 10 compliant display and a G-Sync module to offer a 4K display resolution, a refresh rate of up to 144Hz, G-Sync variable refresh rate support and full HDR10 functionality. To achieve this ASUS are using DisplayPort 1.4 to provide this display with enough bandwidth to facilitate a 4K resolution at such a high refresh rate, with today's DisplayPort 1.2 4K monitors maxing out at 60Hz.    

The ROG Swift PC27UQ is listed as having a 4ms grey-to-grey response time and a peak brightness of 1,000 nits, using a Quantum Dot IPS panel to deliver bright highlights and deep blacks when combined with this display's 384-zone Full Array Local Dimming (FALD) backlight.

27" is too small for 4K res. There would be no sense in buying this monitor even if it was £500.Quote

Sure there would, but not for gaming.

I got a XPS13 laptop with "almost 4k" (3200x1800) resolution, and that thing is so crisp! Quote

For an early adopter style pricing. it is too unrealistic. I see reviewers and the Richie Rich buying it but thats it.Quote

Same resolution on my XPS15 and I've run that since day one at 2048x1152 as native is just too small to deal with. Interface scaling is not an option either as it's hit and miss as to whether it works or not. Hell running 4K on my 55" tv with my pc isn't much good either as you still have to sit within 3 feet of it for smaller text to be easily readable.Quote

I might get this for my side-rig. Put it in the den. Beside my vintage miniature Porche collection. It'll make my Custom Shop Fender Tele really 'pop'.
