Alongside the 4K ready PB287Q, ASUS also tossed me the PG278Q RoG Swift gaming monitor. While the company previously delivered other gaming monitors, the PG278Q is the first RoG branded one, and it's also the first to sport NVidia's G-Sync technology (at least from what I know).
While PB287Q was a 4K screen that was marginally good for gaming, the PG278Q is a completely different beast. It's intended to be used with the 2560x1440 resolution, the highest 16:9 res you'd get before facing diminishing returns, and a 144Hz refresh-rate. Of course, such a monitor would demand a stronger machine, and the G-Sync demands an NVidia's graphic card. For the sake of this review, I pulled out a 780Ti just so we would make sure we get everything right.
Oddly enough, though the Republic of Gamers brand has been expanded considerably since its inception, it never actually had a gaming monitor, not until now. Once Computex rolled in, ASUS presented PG278Q as a premium device, and from the looks of it, it's actually true. This is the kind of device you would acquire for gaming purposes first, and general use second.
There are many other things we should touch on when talking about the PG278Q, including the display technology, the panel type, and even the design. So, without any further delay, let's see what the screen has to offer.
