ASUS ROG Announces a Slew of Gaming Monitors

Known for its gaming peripherals, ASUS ROG sheds some light on its latest line-up of gaming monitors, more notably the ROG Swift PG27VQ, the ROG Strix XG32VQ and XG35VQ, and lastly the Designo Curve MX34VQ. All four monitors are now available and comes with a three-year warranty period.


As mentioned during the review, the ROG Swift PG27VQ is one of the latest gaming monitors to come out from ASUS ROG. It features a 27-inch wide viewing panel with WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution with an 1800R curve. This gives it a wide field of view while still remaining easy on the eyes.

With most gaming monitors, a high refresh rate is one of its most sought-after specs and ASUS ROG recognises this with an overclockable 165Hz refresh rate. It also comes with a 1ms response time, which will eliminate any screen lag or blur.

Pairing both its refresh rate and response time with NVIDIA G-Sync technology, the ROG Swift PG27VQ promises the smoothest gaming experience possible. By syncing its G-Sync technology with a NVIDIA GTX graphics card, display shuttering and screen tearing will be a thing of the past. NVIDIA’s Ultra Low Motion Blur technology is also thrown in to provide a more fluid and responsive gaming experience.

The ROG Swift PG27VQ also comes with the ASUS-exclusive GamePlus hotkey, a suite of in-game enhancements and customisations. It includes a range of four different crosshair choices, an onscreen timer and a frames-per-second (FPS) counter. Due to its near bezel-less display, you can purchase multiple Swift PG27VQs to set up a daisy chain system, giving you an even greater field of view.

Seeing as it is an ASUS ROG peripheral, the ROG Swift PG27VQ will feature its proprietary ASUS Aura Sync ambient lighting. There are two distinct RGB lighting panels, mainly at the back of the monitor as well as at the base of its stand. While the back panel provides your room with ample lighting, the ROG light projection kit on the stand will illuminate your desktop with the signature ROG logo. ASUS ROG will also provide three blank covers for you to showcase your own designs through the light projection kit.

With all the ports located at the back panel, the ROG Swift PG27VQ carries:

  • 1x DisplayPort 1.2
  • 2x HDMI 1.4
  • 1x Headphone output (3.5mm)
  • 1x USB 3.0 (upstream)
  • 2x USB 3.0 (downstream)

The ASUS ROG Swift PG27VQ is now available at RM4,089 with a three-year warranty period.

ASUS ROG Strix XG32VQ and Strix XG35VQ

Keeping in-tune with its curved gaming monitors, ASUS ROG also introduces two new additions to its ROG Strix line-up: the ROG Strix XG32VQ and its older brother, the ROG Strix XG35VQ. Both offer a wider field of view with the Strix XG35VQ being the largest monitor to date in the ASUS ROG family, standing at 35-inches while the Strix XG32VQ is only 32-inches. Both monitors also feature an 1800R curvature, resulting in stunning imagery and visuals.

There are also stark differences between the two monitors; the XG32VQ comes with a wide 125% sRGB colour gamut, delivering a wide range of lifelike and vibrant colours. the XG35VQ on the other hand, focuses on unparalleled immersion with its ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio. This is due to its UWQHD display panel, which comes with a 3440 x 1440 pixel resolution.

While the XG35VQ may feature a larger display panel, it only features a 100Hz refresh rate while the XG32VQ features a 144Hz refresh rate. Both the monitors come with Adaptive-Sync (Free-Sync) technology to minimise screen tearing, lagging, shuttering and frame rate drops. Additionally, only the XG35VQ comes with the ASUS Extreme Low Motion Blur technology.

Much like the ROG Swift PG27VQ, both the ROG Strix XG32VQ and the XG35VQ comes with the integrated ASUS Aura Sync lighting technology on the base of its stands. The back panels of the monitors also feature a circular strip of the ASUS Aura Sync lighting technology and can be paired with other Aura-enabled products for easier synchronisation.

As usual, all the ports are located at the back of the monitor. Of course, both monitors feature a similar ports. The main difference is that the XG32VQ features a Mini DisplayPort while the XG35VQ has a HDMI 1.4 port. Aside from that, here are the ports that both monitors carry:

  • 1x DisplayPort 1.2 (Supports Adaptive-Sync/FreeSync)
