ASUS recently hinted on YouTube about its upcoming high-end gaming monitor, the ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDP. This appears to confirm what could be a trend in 2024—enjoying versatile monitors capable of changing their resolution and refresh rate with just the press of a button. This feature makes it easy to switch between various game modes without needing to change any Windows settings or in-game configurations.
A few days ago, LG unveiled the UltraGear 32GS95UE monitor, which was the first to position itself as a multipurpose monitor on the market. These monitors have the advantage of high-resolution 4K and a high refresh rate of 240 Hz.
For instance, if users want to play a competitive shooter, pressing a button will make the monitor switch to a 1080p resolution while doubling the maximum refresh rate to 480 Hz. This provides a monitor suitable for enjoying maximum game quality while also focusing on eSports—all on the same screen, eliminating the need for a second, specialized gaming monitor.
As for the ASUS ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDP monitor, it is likely to use the same panel as the LG model. Both will essentially be the same monitor based on the limited information available, with differences in design and price.
The ASUS monitor will also feature a 32-inch OLED panel. The main difference is that LG’s model has a curved design, while ASUS’s version is flat. This implies that 32 inches is the limit for the comfort level of a flat panel monitor. For everyday use beyond gaming, bigger screens may require more head movement to view all content.
Like LG’s model, this panel can run at a native 4K resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels at 240 Hz. Pressing a button will automatically convert it to a Full HD monitor with 1,920 x 1,080 pixels at 480 Hz. In both cases, the monitor will operate with a response time of 0.03 milliseconds (0.03 ms GtG). If the panel is the same, it will have a contrast ratio of 1,500,000:1, cover 98.5% of the DCI-P3 color space, and be compatible with AMD FreeSync Premium Pro and NVIDIA G-Sync Compatible technologies.
Both the ASUS ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDP and LG UltraGear 32GS95UE are expected to be formally announced in early 2024 during CES in Las Vegas. As a result, we will have to wait a few more weeks to learn the prices of these monitors.
The entry about the ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDP first appeared on El Chapuzas Informático, revealing that ASUS also has a monitor capable of 4K gaming at 240 Hz or 1080p at 480 Hz.
