Asus ROG Swift PG27AQDP with 27″ 1440p 480Hz OLED Panel Unveiled

Share this content

At CES 2024 Asus have unveiled the World’s first 480Hz OLED gaming monitor, the ROG Swift PG27AQDP. This follows on from the news we brought you in December about the development of the new WOLED panel they will use here, as well as the formal announcement more recently before CES from LG.Display about its production. Asus are the first to announce a screen using this panel, moving ahead when it comes to refresh rate and speed of a range of manufacturers who have instead focused on offering 27″ 360Hz OLED monitors this year like Dell and MSI for instance.

Asus ROG Swift PG27AQDP Specs

The new screen will be 27″ in size and features a flat format WOLED panel from LG.Display. It has a 2560 x 1440 resolution combined with a super-high 480Hz refresh rate. This will be supported by adaptive-sync for variable refresh rates from compatible NVIDIA and AMD systems.

There is also a 0.03ms G2G response time spec, 1.5 million:1 contrast ratio and 1300 nits peak brightness for HDR (30% higher than their previous OLED monitors). The OLED panel will offer the usual benefits of near-instant response times, per pixel level dimming and basically infinite contrast ratio potential.

Asus’ uniform brightness mode will continue to be useful to help mitigate dimming and ABL during desktop uses, and the screen will also feature their custom heatsink which avoids the need to use an active cooling fan.

Asus also promote their supposedly improved text clarity on all their new models thanks to their “clear pixel edge” technology, something that is present on the 34″ ultrawide PG34WCDM which we have with us now for review – so we will comment on that further in the forthcoming review. We know from our panel roadmaps that the 27″ model discussed in this news piece will also feature LG.Display’s updated pixel layout (more info here), so we should see some positive changes to text clarity thanks to that too.

From a connectivity point of view there is USB type-C provided along with Smart KVM support. HDMI 2.1 was also covered in their promotional video for CES (capabilities not listed) but DisplayPort was not mentioned at all. It’s possible Asus are still investigating whether DP 2.1 could be added to the 27″ 480Hz and 32″ 4K 240Hz models, although as we reported in our recent article, this is difficult and challenging at this time. More details to be confirmed later on.

Interestingly Asus have added ELMB (Extreme Low Motion Blur) to their new gen 3 OLED monitors, something we talked about more in our news piece here.

Loads more panel information

Loads more information on the LG.Display WOLED panel details, specs and timescales for the panels that will be used in this new screen is included in our new roadmap video here, including information on improved text clarity, updated pixel layouts, new panel sizes, higher resolutions, higher refresh rates, brighter HDR and even….glossy panels!

Pricing and Availability

Asus did not provide any details at this time, but based on the panel production schedule we have at the moment we would expect this screen to be released around Aug/Sept 2024. More info when we get it.
