Nvidia has made high end RTX graphics card and with their development, High Definition BFGD ( Big Format Gaming Display ) Displays had to be made to achieve the full potential of the graphics cards.
The ASUS ROG Swift PG65UQ uses a 64.5-inch 8-bit 4K Ultra-HD AMVA panel featuring 750-1000 nits brightness (typical/HDR), a 3200:1-4000:1 contrast ratio (minimum/typical), 178° viewing angles, a 120 – 144 Hz refresh rate (normal/overclocked), and a 4 ms GtG response time with overdrive enabled. Since the monitor belongs to the G-Sync HDR range, it has a 384-zone full direct-array backlight enhanced with quantum dots to guarantee high contrast as well as precise reproduction of 95% of the DCI-P3 color space.
While the ROG Swift PG65UQ uses the same panel as HP’s Omen X Emperium, the monitor is configured differently. Unlike HP, ASUS decided not to equip its 64.5-inch gaming display with a high-end sound bar as well as an integrated NVIDIA Shield STB. Meanwhile, the display still has a USB hub and an IR receiver.
The decision not to offer a soundbar and the STB is pretty logical as hardcore gamers (especially among the ROG clientele) tend to use gaming speakers of their choice. Besides, without the soundbar and the STB the monitor costs less and potentially enables ASUS to sell it at a lower price point than HP.
So far, ASUS has not announced a firm launch date as well as MSRP for the ROG Swift PG65UQ, but NVIDIA is already demonstrating the monitor, so the unit appears to be more or less ready. But one thing is for sure, if ASUS is making this kind of BFGD, then other famous manufacturers are also in process of making their displays as well. Let’s see what we get later this year.
