ROG GAMING MONITORS
ROG Swift OLED PG27AQDM – The endgame 1440p OLED gaming monitor
This 27-inch WQHD (2560 x 1440) OLED gaming monitor features an anti-glare micro-texture coating, 0.03 ms response time, and 240 Hz refresh rate to deliver superfast frame rates for truly immersive gaming. To ensure OLED longevity, the Swift OLED PG27AQDM includes a custom heatsink for heat-generating components and a new internal layout to improve cooling. Internal airflow has been optimized, and the top air vents are larger for better heat dissipation. With heat being dissipated more evenly across the rear of the monitor, the average temperature is 5% lower compared to other 27-inch gaming monitors.
Intelligent voltage optimization ensures consistent luminance for each pixel by controlling the amount of voltage applied to it. ROG worked closely with the panel maker to determine the correlation between OLED brightness, voltage level, and operational temperature. A smart algorithm coded for the panel optimizes voltage based on temperature changes to ensure consistent brightness across the panel.
A uniform brightness feature keeps the brightness level consistent even when changing the size of bright white windows. Additionally, the new DisplayWidget Center software lets users tinker with OLED-related functions and system settings via an intuitive interface, without having to fiddle with the OSD.
This monitor delivers astonishing HDR performance and a peak brightness of 1000 nits. 99% DCI-P3 gamut and Delta E < 2 color accuracy ensures exceptional, lifelike colors, with the Swift OLED PG27AQDM able to showcase the darkest black hues along with high perceptual brightness.
