The Asus ROG Swift PG27AQN, a high-end monitor with a fast refresh rate, may experience connectivity issues due to its technical specifications. It offers three HDMI 2.0 inputs and a DisplayPort 1.4a, which may seem like a lot, but the HDMI inputs are limited to a maximum refresh rate of 144Hz (or 240Hz at 1080p) and cannot handle 1440p at 360Hz. Only the DisplayPort 1.4a port can handle 360Hz.

  • Dimensions With Stand(WxHxD): 24.17″ x 20″ x 10.04″
  • Weight: 18.52 lbs+


While it is disappointing that the monitor only has one input capable of handling 360Hz, this should not be a significant issue for those who intend to use only one high-end gaming PC.


The monitor also includes a USB-B upstream port that supports two USB-A downstream ports for connecting peripherals, which can be used with the Nvidia Reflex Analyzer. Additionally, there is a 3.5mm audio output, but the monitor lacks built-in speakers.


The cable management system is supplemented by a plastic cover that closes off access to the interface connectors. Both solutions are well-known and provide an adequate result when used together.
