[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 327

I actually don't know. Just rumors from TFT and 144hz websites that I didn't actually read myself but was reported from other users.

Both monitors aren't out yet here in the US, they both come out Nov. Regardless, I'll have to wait anyways.

The PG279Q so far might not even have glow due to the display, it can be due to the way the chassis is designed if people are all having the same glow in the lower right hand corner which is also where the OSD and buttons are. This can be a mechanical design problem rather than a display problem if it's pretty consistent with everyone elses display.

In case this wasn't posted yet, PC Perspective is saying this monitor will be launching the first week of November in the US! biggrin.gif

Pricing and Availability

The ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q will ship in the first week of November and will have an MSRP of $799. That puts its pretty much on par with the currently available Acer XB270HU display that sports a 144Hz IPS G-Sync display and 2560x1440 resolution.

ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q - $799
Acer XB270HU - $755
ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q - $670

For this review, I asked ASUS specifically about availability. After all, with the huge debacle surrounding the original Swift's release that included months of availability concerns and price spikes, we had apprehensions that ASUS could keep up with demand. The company has assured me that they "aren’t expecting any issues" for this release. That could mean they have produced a large quantity for shipment or that they expect less of a rabid fervor for the monitors like we saw with the PG278Q. I think the latter seems likely - the initial excitement over G-Sync monitors has died down and now consumers are more interested in picking out the perfect monitor for them, not just whatever happens to hit the market.

The panel is identical to the one used in the HU. The internal metel bezel is simply painted black and exposed. Same thing Asus did with the PG278Q.

The TFT review is out and its not using the same panel:

The Asus ROG Swift PG279Q features an AU Optronics M270Q008 V0 AHVA (IPS-type) panel which is capable of producing 16.7 million colours with a true 8-bit colour depth. This is a new panel that we've not seen in any screen before. Early reports and some other reviews have wrongly stated that the screen is using the same M270DAN02.3 panel as the similarly spec'd Acer XB270HU and Asus MG279Q. That isn't right though, and isn't really logical given that this is a new borderless / frameless style panel as well. We expect to see this new panel used in the forthcoming Acer XB271HU when that's released too.

Maybe it can only read via the card vis the G-Sync function.

I'm pretty sure it's refresh rate monitor but because lot of people does not know what is it, they names it FPS counter. In fact it's Hz counter because when g-sync off it does not matter how we name it because FPS = Hz...

@PCM2. I have seen your Swift PG278Q OSD showcase on youtube, and picked up a thing or two early on from it. Cheers! smile.gif

If Asus would call it Refresh Rate Monitor, everything would be fine. But it does not sound so good for marketing, does it ? smile.gif In fact it has nothing to do with framerate. It just displays actual monitor refresh rate...

However it is still there while you can pretty much with good angle eliminate whole left side glow. But then right side is growing bigger.

There is just something on right side of this monitor that makes it- control panel, maybe some cooling hardware etc. I do not know.

That's true. But it's not just Asus. I have LG IPS235 and it is the same. Right side glow is obviously much more prominent. Left side has literally no glow, you can see it only from ridiculous angles. So who has any explanation of this phenomenon ???

It has nothing to do with controls, those are completely separated from LCD panel.

Interesting. So what I've gathered:

  • Different panel than the XB270HU and MG279Q.
  • Same coating as said monitors.
  • The same amount of glow as said monitors.
  • At 144 Hz with OD set to Normal, they got ever so slightly faster response than the XB270HU, which was faster than the MG279Q. The amount of overshoot is negligible.
  • You need a GTX 960 or above to run 165 Hz.
  • Response time is higher at 165 Hz than 144 Hz.
  • They have no picture comparison of 165 Hz vs 144 Hz.
