  • ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q Monitor Review - NVIDIA G-Sync 165Hz Bliss

    Conclusion After my time with the ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q, I came to fall in love with it completely. I was a huge, huge fan of the original ROG Swift PG278Q, but the PG279Q fixes all my faults with the PG278Q (and it's not like that list was huge).   I really wanted to see an IPS-based ROG Swift, so here we are. The 144Hz refresh rate has been lifted to 165Hz, and we still have the inclusion of G-Sync from NVIDIA. The entire display has received a slight facelift, with the glowing ROG eye on the base of the display looking menacing on those late night gaming sessions. As for the gaming performance, there's nothing that comes close to this. While most people won't tell the difference between 144Hz and 165Hz, this is the most insane gaming monitor you can buy. I'm glad we didn't see ASUS drop down to 1920x1080 at 165Hz, which would've been a deal-breaker. But at the QHD resolution, 165Hz really excels. First-person shooters benefit greatly from the 165Hz refresh rate, especially twitch shooters like CS: GO and games like Team Fortress 2 feel incredibly fluid. Battlefield 4 and similar shooters still feel great, and even titles like Just Cause 3 feel super-smooth on the ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q. At the end of the day, this is a no holds barred gaming monitor that is worthy of your money. But you'll have to be prepared to have the GPU power behind you to drive 2560x1440 at close to, or at 165FPS constant. This isn't easy, and this is probably the biggest hurdle to the ROG Swift PG279Q (and any 144Hz+ monitor). But, if you've got the GPU chops and the money, then you will not regret the ROG Swift PG279Q.
