Among the recent announcements, the Asus Rog Swift PG27AQN may be the most exciting in the world of esports, and we're already keen to know what date we can expect it to release.

While the full picture has yet to be revealed, we do partially know what to expect, and spoiler alert, this monitor looks to be a game-changer and a strong potential contender for one of the best 360hz monitors of the year.

If you're looking to get the edge as soon as possible, read on, here's everything we know so far about the Asus' upcoming 360hz, 1440p monitor.

ASUS ROG SWIFT PG27AQN Release Date Speculation

The Asus Rog Swift PG27AQN is expected to head our way this year, alongside a number of other QHD, 300hz+ monitors, like the ViewSonic Elite XG272G-2K and the MSI MEG 271Q, however, we're still waiting for a concrete release date from Asus.

If we had to throw our hat into the arena, we'd say sooner rather than later, as some of the monitors that were unveiled around the time of CES 2022 have already been released.

We'll update this section the second we hear more, so stay tuned...

The good news though is that either way, there is a lot to look forward to.

The ASUS Rog Swift PG27AQN packs a 1440p, 360hz, 27" display, which is the first of what we imagine will be many to come.

This has all the possible benefits you'd associate with high-refresh-rate monitors, but also throws QHD into the mix for an, albeit slight for most, advantage when it comes to accuracy.

Perhaps one of the most impressive updates comes with its liquid-crystal display technology, which has been improved to further reduce response times.

Liquid crystals basically work by twisting to let varying levels of light through, and they work closely with voltage.

Previous monitors had the liquid crystals arranged so they change from the upper left to the bottom right via a single-layer voltage.

This monitor, however, has a dual-layer voltage driver, which allows the liquid crystals to change from both the upper left and bottom right simultaneously.

So in short...response times are even better than before.

This monitor also packs an Nvidia Reflex Analyzer, which allows you to quickly identify where you may be losing speed in relation to latency.

That's a great thing for pro gamers who want to ensure their monitor is tuned to perfection.

When it comes to connectivity, due to it being 1440p, the monitor favours HDMI 2.0 ports and DisplayPort 1.4 over the now popular HDMI 2.1.

That's not a bad thing, but if you're after something to get the most out of PS5 and Xbox Series X, you may have to head towards some of the best HDMI 2.1 monitors instead.

ASUS ROG SWIFT PG27AQN Price Speculation

We expect prices to be revealed soon, but as with many of the upcoming 360hz monitors we're predicting this will be an expensive one.

Sure the size isn't too massive and it's 1440p, but we wouldn't rule out circa $800, especially since it's positioned towards the esports market.

Be sure to check back in with us soon as we'll be updating this article with all the latest.
