ASRock have recently unveiled several new monitors in their growing ‘Phantom’ line-up of gaming monitors, with some also being built around OLED panel technology – the company’s first venture in to this space. The new screens don’t have the most memorable product names and there’s very limited information provided so far, but we’ve included details of them all below.
PGO27QFS2A – 27″ 1440p 240Hz OLED
This is a 27″ sized model (seemingly pictured above from the press release) build around a WOLED panel from LG.Display, offering a 2560 x 1440 resolution and 240Hz refresh rate. It includes adaptive-sync support for VRR along with certification under the AMD ‘FreeSync Premium’ scheme, and for HDR it is certified under the VESA ‘DisplayHDR 400 True Black’ tier.
There are 2x DisplayPort 1.4, 1x HDMI 2.1 (capabilities not listed) and 1x USB type-C connection provided along with 2x USB data ports and a headphone jack. The stand provides tilt, height and swivel adjustments and the screen also includes Wi-Fi antenna connectivity like the company’s previous monitors.
PGO270W2A – 27″ 1440p 360Hz OLED
This is another 27″ sized screen but this time it looks like it will be built around a third generation Samsung Display QD-OLED panel. It has the same 2560 x 1440 resolution as the model discussed above, but this model has a 360Hz refresh rate. Adaptive-sync VRR with AMD ‘FreeSync Premium’ certification is again listed.
Connectivity is expected to include 1x DisplayPort 1.4 and 2x HDMI 2.1 (capabilities not listed). USB type-C is listed but might only be for data transfer. The stand provides tilt, height and swivel adjustments.
PGO34QRT2A – 34″ ultrawide 240Hz OLED
This is a 34″ ultrawide model with a 3440 x 1440 resolution and 240Hz refresh rate. Apparently this model will have a subtle 1800R curvature which is far less than the 800R curvature of the LG.Display WOLED panel of this size and spec. We are waiting on further confirmation of the panel technology used here, but we have had word from Samsung Display that they are planning to produce a gen 3 QD-OLED version of their 34″ ultrawide panel this year, with a 240Hz refresh rate, so this screen could well be based on that. We are waiting on further information about the panel specs and timelines from Samsung.
This 34″ ultrawide model will also include adaptive sync for VRR, and ASRock mention VESA ‘DisplayHDR 400 True Black’ certification too. Connectivity is expected to include 1x DisplayPort 1.4, 1x HDMI 2.1 and 1x USB type-C connection. The stand provides tilt, height and swivel adjustments.
PG27FFX2A – 27″ 1080p 520Hz IPS Panel
It’s not just OLED monitors that ASRock announced. They’ve also unveiled their PG27FFX2A, which is a 27″ sized screen built around an IPS-type panel. It has a 1920 x 1080 resolution and a high 520Hz refresh rate. This will be the first time we’ve seen 500Hz+ in the larger 27″ screen size, with the only models available so far being 24 – 24.5″ in size (e.g. the Asus ROG Swift Pro PG248QP that we’ve reviewed). MSI did showcase a 27″ 1440p 500Hz model at CES 2024 as well, but ASRock’s screen is slightly different, with a lower resolution of 1080p (FHD) but a slightly higher refresh rate at 520Hz.
A few other specs were announced including the usual 1ms G2G response time spec, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 400 cd/m2 brightness, 178/178 viewing angles and a colour gamut covering 90% of the DCI-P3 colour space. Adaptive-sync VRR support is included, along with certification under the AMD ‘FreeSync Premium’ scheme.
Connectivity is expected to include 1x DisplayPort 1.4 and 2x HDMI 2.1 ports as well as some USB data ports and a headphone jack. A full range of tilt, height, swivel and rotate adjustments are offered from the stand.
PG27QFW2A – 27″ 1440p with 400Hz IPS Panel
Also unveiled is another 27″ sized screen with an IPS-type panel, this time offering the combination of a 2560 x 1440 resolution and a 400Hz refresh rate. Adaptive-sync VRR support is included, along with certification under the AMD ‘FreeSync Premium’ scheme again and a few other specs were included like 1000:1 contrast ratio and 350 cd/m2 brightness.
Connectivity is expected to include 12x DisplayPort 1.4 and 2x HDMI 2.1 ports as well as some USB data ports and a headphone jack. USB type-C is also listed byt looks like it might only be for data transfer. A full range of tilt, height, swivel and rotate adjustments are offered from the stand.
No word on pricing or availability for any of these, nor even full specs. More details when we get them.
