Asus’ Flagship ROG Swift PG348Q Curved Monitor with G-Sync Unleashed

We first saw the Asus ROG Swift PG348Q at Computex last year and at that time it was just a concept monitor. But we knew that Asus would release this monitor sooner or later. Early this month, Asus has officially announced their flagship monitor, the ROG Swift PG348Q, featuring a nice 34″ ultra-wide curved panel with IPS technology, a resolution of 3440×1440, a refresh rate of 100Hz, NVIDIA G-SYNC and other Asus exclusive features. The Asus PG348Q outshines its predecessors (the PG27AQ, PG279Q and PG278Q) not only in size and set of features but also in design as well. Asus ditch the (excessively used) black and red scheme and used what they call the Armor Titanium and Plasma Copper color scheme. One question I’m sure that will surely arise from potential buyers is that should I buy the new Asus ROG Swift PG348Q or the Acer Predator X34? In the meantime, more details about the PG348Q from the official news below.

I love computers since I was a kid. I’m always fascinated with new technology, especially in the PC world. Many years ago, I was curious if the reviews I read were true and real. So, why not test them myself and share my first-hand experience? And thus, here we are. Thanks for reading!
