Asus have today announced their new ROG Swift gaming monitor with a whopping 500Hz refresh rate! As their press release says: “Back in 2012, ASUS released the world’s first ever 144Hz monitor, and we’ve been chasing high refresh rates ever since. From the first 240Hz NVIDIA® G-SYNC display we released in 2017 to the first 360Hz display in 2020, ROG is committed to pushing competitive gaming to new heights at every opportunity. Now, we’re ecstatic to announce that we’ve done it again: introducing the ROG Swift 500Hz, a groundbreaking new gaming monitor that refreshes 500 times per second, for the most fluid, fast-paced motion you’ll find in modern Esports.”

500Hz is the highest refresh rate monitor currently announced!

The ROG Swift 500Hz draws frames more than eight times faster than typical 60Hz displays in a single second, which means you have that much more time to get a leg up on your opponent in esports titles like Counter-Strike: Global OffensiveValorantOverwatch, and Rainbow Six Siege according to the press release. Asus also talk about the screen having super-low response times and “unprecedented improvements in input lag”, whatever that could mean given most gaming screens are already very low lag nowadays.

Asus ROG Swift 500Hz Specs

The screen is currently being called the “ROG Swift 500Hz” but a full product name will be forthcoming nearer launch. It’s a 24.1″ sized screen with a 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution. It’s based on a TN Film technology panel, something that we talked about recently as a new panel offering from AU Optronics. Asus are calling this in their marketing an “Esports TN (E-TN)” panel. They talk about how it offers “60% better response times than standard TN Film panels” which is something that would be needed to support the new 500Hz refresh rate.

Native NVIDIA G-sync Module and Reflex Latency Analyzer Included

The refresh rate is supported by a Native NVIDIA G-sync module to offer excellent VRR performance, along with other benefits like variable refresh rate and super-low input lag. The screen will also include NVIDIA’s Reflex Latency Analyzer tool which we looked at last year.

Asus also say that they’ve also included an enhanced Vibrance mode, specifically tuned for esports, built into the monitor’s firmware. “This mode allows more light to travel through the LCD crystals, giving colors new levels of vibrancy and allowing you to pick out details and highlights that might give away an enemy’s position.”
