ASUS ROG SWIFT PG32UQX Goes for DisplayHDR 1400 and 1152-zone Mini LED backlight

Published by


Meet the new ROG Swift PG32UQX, a Mini LED 4K high-dynamic-range (HDR) gaming monitor. Variable refresh rates up to 144Hz and support for 10-bit color throughout the refresh rate range ensure that the PG32UQX always shows off your games, movies, and desktop applications at their best. 

NVIDIA G-SYNC support means you’ll enjoy smooth, tear-free gameplay even when frame rates fall below the PG32UQX’s native 144Hz refresh rate, and the incredibly capable panel and backlight inside let the display pass NVIDIA’s most stringent tier of G-SYNC certification—G-SYNC ULTIMATE—with flying colors. 

The PG32UQX is our first gaming display to meet the even more stringent VESA DisplayHDR 1400 standard.

The ROG Swift PG32UQX provides the most delectable HDR feast for the eyes of any 16:9 display so far. A full-array local dimming Mini LED backlight with 1152 zones lets the PG32UQX display the brightest highlights and darkest blacks of a scene with incredible contrast and minimal haloing. Small highlights in games, like light bulbs or the disc of the sun, can reach peak brightness of up to 1400 nits on this monitor, offering a more lifelike HDR experience than ever before. And since portions of the mini LED backlight can turn off as needed, you’ll enjoy some of the inkiest shadows around when a scene calls for them. 

The PG32UQX is designed to be a productive companion outside of games, too. Making full use of the desktop real estate offered by a 4K resolution isn’t always practical on a 27” monitor, simply because not all of us have eagle eyes. Many users take advantage of 4K displays’ high pixel density by scaling up the Windows desktop for smoother text rendering, but for those who want to use all of the real estate available from a 4K resolution, the 32” diagonal expanse of the PG32UQX offers a pixel density better suited to running the Windows desktop without scaling.
