Asus ROG Swift OLED PG34WCDM 34″ 1440p 240Hz Curved Gaming Monitor Released

Asus recently announced the ROG Swift OLED PG34WCDM, a 34-inch 3440×1440 240Hz curved gaming monitor with an aggressive 800R curvature and features a WOLED panel. The 34-inch 1440p form factor has been popular with ultrawide gamers ever since Alienware released its AW3423DWF, and MSI followed with its MEG 342C QD-OLED. Can Asus outshine them with its PG34WCDM featuring a WOLED panel instead of QD-OLED? It does have its strengths as well as weaknesses. Some of its shortcomings are poor text clarity and its price, which is reported to be around $1,300 USD. However, it has a better reflection rejection due to its matte coating and arguably better motion performance. Check out more of Asus’ PG34WCDM features and specifications from the news release below.
