ASUS' ROG Swift PG27UQ 4K 144Hz G-Sync monitor will release in Q3 2017

 
 
ASUS' ROG Swift PG27UQ 4K 144Hz G-Sync HDR monitor is set to release in Q3 2017 at the price of $2000, offering higher framerates, wider colour space and lower latencies than today's PC gaming displays.  
 

Nvidia has announced that G-Sync HDR technology will provide users with HDR10 compatibility with support for the PCI-P3 colour space and a peak brightness of 1,000rd/m^2. This colour space is 25% wider than sRGB and uses a Quantum Dot Enhancement Film (QDEF) to create deep saturated reds and greens out of blue light, which allows this display to offer more realistic colour representation and more accurate images. 

The ROG PG27UQ will feature dynamically controlled across 384 zones, to enable ultra-high contrast and richer, more natural-looking dark scenes. 

ASUS has confirmed that the ROG Swift PG27UQ will use DisplayPort 1.4 to offer Ultra-high resolutions, HDR compatibility and support for 144Hz refresh rates, making this display easily the most impressive consumer monitor that we have ever seen.

This display has dual HDMI 1.4 ports and one HDMI 2.0 port for 4K content playback, with this display supporting VESA mounts for easy mounting to monitor arms and other display mounting solutions. 

Nvidia's G-Sync HDR technology also promises to deliver HDR images without adding additional latency to the panel, unlike existing HDR solutions found in modern televisions (which typically add 15-40ms of latency). This will make HDR gaming content much more playable and suitable for online/competitive gaming. 

Right now this display is expected in Q3 2017, with a price of $2000 in the US. At this time UK and EU pricing for this display is unknown.

Wow that's half the price I thought

It will probably have some QC issues like its brothers so.

Please, ASUS, make a $400 cheaper and less "gaming" Freesync version of it :*Quote

Yeah the price is a lot more realistic at least. The good news is that if you can make a 4k 144hz then an ultrawide 144hz 3440*1440 panel should be viable at the same time.

At least with this monitor you won't have to worry about your GPU being overkill for a few generations yet.Quote

I have a 1080p TN panel bought in 2010 and the one I'd like to buy ( MG24UQ) went from €392 to €415 recently. It's $349 in the USA -.-

This one could be the definitive option but it costs as much as my entire platform (everything excluding case, gpu and peripherals) and I barely have enough money for the MG24UQ right now, let alone a Vega GPU.

Moreover, G-Sync needs to dieQuote
