Az OLED gamer tévéknek állítanak konkurenciát az Asus új monitorai kép

New Asus monitors compete with gaming OLED TVs

They come to gamers’ desks with a huge screen, lightning-fast image updates, and built-in cooling that extends the life of the OLED panel.

We were lucky enough to be able to see the latest members of the Asus Republic of Gamers family, the SWIFT OLED family gaming monitors, which seem to blur the line completely between TVs and monitors. While LG is trying to dominate this segment with smaller and smaller TVs, Asus is trying to win our hearts from the other side.

TV vs screen

The two new members of the monitor family come in 42-inch and 48-inch sizes, and they have everything you could expect from a gaming monitor. At this size, of course, 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution is already standard, and the panel can refresh more than 8 million pixels up to 138 times per second, if we switch to overclocking mode and our hardware is capable of scaling. To reduce the risk of combustion, a massive heat sink is placed on the back of the panels, which reduces the internal temperature by up to 8%, which also has a beneficial effect on performance.

Of course, we can enjoy all the advantages of an OLED panel, from the amazing contrast ratio to the perfect black. According to the manufacturer, we can count on a contrast ratio of 1,500,000:1, and we can’t complain about the colors either, since the panel covers 98% of the DCI-P3 color space. The monitors have HDR 10 support, 10-bit color depth, and 0.1 milliseconds (GTG) response time. G-Sync support isn’t left out either, and the screen has been made matte so that flickering light sources and reflections don’t bother you while gaming.

No one is left behind

For console owners, there are two HDMI 2.1 ports, two HDMI 2.0 ports, and a DisplayPort 1.4 port on the back of the monitor. They did not forget about the USB HUB either, four USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports are included, and at the top of the screen there is also a connector for connecting various devices, webcams and lights. Audio is provided by Harman Kardon 2x10W front speakers, and a 15W subwoofer is also hidden under the hood. If someone doesn’t want to keep the 15kg beast on the table (as in the 42″ version), you can, of course, put it on a 300×300 VESA mount.
