Asus has unveiled two new giant OLED gaming monitors at gamescom 2022, the Asus ROG Swift OLED PG42UQ and PG48UQ, which come in 41.5 and 47.5 inches, respectively, and feature a bright OLED panel that is fast up to 138 Hz.
Asus ROG Swift OLED PG42UQ / PG48UQ unveiled
Both monitors were first shown at CES 2022 earlier this year, but there was no date at the time. Now, the Asus ROG Swift OLED PG42UQ / PG48UQ gaming monitors are approaching the market launch.
The technical specifications are largely the same. Both monitors rely on a matte OLED panel in 16:9 format, which resolves in 4K with 3,840 x 2,160 pixels and has a typical brightness of 450 cd/m². Both monitors achieve a refresh rate of 120 Hz, or even 138 Hz when overclocked.
They also offer a contrast ratio of 1,500,000:1 for HDR content (typical: 135,000:1), a response time of 0.1 ms as well as true 10-bit colors and 98% DCI-P3 color coverage. The displays are also pre-calibrated at the factory to Delta E < 2 color accuracy and differ primarily in terms of size.
The Asus ROG Swift OLED PG42UQ comes with a screen diagonal of 41.5 inches, while the PG48UQ is 47.53 inches. Unlike other OLED displays, the ROG Swift OLED series monitors feature the new anti-glare Micro Texture coating on the panel surface to reduce glare.
Other features highlights
The Asus ROG Swift OLED PG42UQ / PG48UQ gaming monitors are also G-Sync compatible and feature, among other things, an HDMI 2.1 port that also allows for 4K image display at 120 Hz including VRR on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
Two HDMI 2.1 ports are complemented by two HDMI 2.0 ports, one DisplayPort 1.4, a USB hub with four USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports each, a USB 3.0 port, an optical audio output and a 3.5 mm jack.
Other features include a thermal cooling system that keeps the monitors cool, a remote control for adjusting settings, different display modes for different games, and two built-in 10-watt speakers and a 15-watt subwoofer.
