Serious gamers take their gear seriously, and the new ASUS ROG Swift PG348Q monitor is going to seriously appeal to a lot of them. This display is many things, including being enormous, curved, and beautifully-crafted especially for the gaming crowd.
We'll start with the specs: this is a 34-inch curved IPS LCD display with a 3440x1440 resolution. That puts it into the ultra-wide category, with an aspect ratio of 21:9. A more standard monitor is a 16:9, so the Swift PG348Q offers additional space to the left and right — for gamers, that can be the difference between virtual life and death. An additional bonus for gamers is the blisteringly fast 100Mhz refresh rate and NVIDIA G-SYNC for buttery smooth visuals.
Visually, this is a beautiful monitor. It stands out in so many ways, from the etched and angular back side to the gear-like cylindrical stand with tripod legs, to the ROG logo projected onto your desk under those legs. It's a sight to behold. But if you're looking at it from the front, it's the massive 34-inch display that will keep your attention. And though there's a bezel around the screen, the glass panel overlay extends practically right up to the edge of the frame.
We don't have pricing or availability yet for the ASUS ROG Swift PG348Q, but we don't expect it to be cheap. Then again, a big, beautiful, and curvaceous display with specs like this deserves a price tag to match. For more from Windows Central and ASUS, be sure to check out our IFA 2015 hub.
