ASUS Republic of Gamers Announces Swift PG27VQ

World’s most responsive curved gaming monitor is the first ever with Aura RGB lighting synchronization, and boasts 1ms response time and overclockable 165Hz refresh rate

SYDNEY, Australia, October 25, 2017 — ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced Swift PG27VQ, the world’s most responsive curved gaming monitor. With a 1ms response time and an overclockable refresh rate of 165Hz, it’s perfect for fast-paced games. Swift PG27VQ is also the first gaming monitor to offer RGB lighting synchronization, with exclusive ASUS Aura Sync lighting technology to provide ambient lighting that can be synchronized with other Aura-enabled components and peripherals. Its 27-inch WQHD (2560 x 1440) panel provides a compelling balance of performance and sharpness, ideal for identifying and engaging targets in dense, highly detailed environments.


World’s most responsive curved gaming monitor

The 1ms response time and overclockable refresh rate of 165Hz of Swift PG27VQ eliminates lag and motion blur, allowing it to easily handle the fast-paced action of first-person shooters (FPS) and racing games. The 1800R curvature of its panel ensures that every point on the display is equidistant to the eyes, providing a full and comfortable view that makes it ideal for marathon gaming sessions.

World’s first curved monitor with RGB lighting synchronization

To meet the aesthetic demands of hardcore gamers, Swift PG27VQ features exclusive Aura Sync lighting technology that allows for RGB synchronization with other Aura-enabled components and peripherals. With Aura Sync, gamers feel fully immersed in their quests, as the lights create the perfect atmosphere and pulse to the beat of game sound effects. Setting up the light synchronization is easy and only requires the installation of the Aura Sync software.

NVIDIA G-SYNC and Ultra Low Motion Blur technology

Pairing the 165Hz refresh rate with NVIDIA® G-SYNC technology results in the smoothest, fastest, most breathtaking gaming imaginable. G-SYNC synchronizes Swift PG27VQ’s refresh rate to the GeForce® GTX graphics card to eliminate screen tearing and to minimize display stutter. Gamers will also enjoy sharper objects in motion and more fluid and responsive gameplay, thanks to NVIDIA Ultra Low Motion Blur technology

Gamer-centric, customizable features

Swift PG27VQ provides a series of gamer-centric customizations designed to fulfill the ROG commitment of creating the best experiences for every gamer. ROG Light Signature is a projection kit that enables projection of stylish lighting effects onto the desktop surface. Swift PG27VQ includes two ROG logo covers and three blank covers that gamers can use to create their own light projections, to show their unique gaming style.

The ASUS-exclusive GamePlus hotkey is a suite of in-game enhancements and customizations, including a range of four different crosshair options to suit different games, an onscreen timer, a frames-per-second counter, and a display alignment function that enables multiple displays to be lined up effortlessly and with precision. Swift PG27VQ also features ASUS GameVisual technology, which offers seven display mode presets to optimize visuals for various types of content.


ASUS ROG Swift PG27VQ will be available from end of November 2017 at the estimated RRP of AUD$1499.00.
