Asus launched two 41.5″ and 48″ OLED monitors under its ROG (Republic of Gamers) sub-brand this week: the ROG Swift OLED PG42UQ and ROG Swift OLED PG48UQ. Both monitors have a matte OLED display with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels and a maximum refresh rate of 120 Hz (overclocked 138 Hz). The maximum brightness is 450 cd/m² and the monitors can be tilted by +5° and -5°. There is no pivot and rotation function or height adjustability.
The monitors support Adaptive Sync and are compatible with Nvidia’s G-Sync (48 to 120 Hz). The monitors have a response time of 0.1 ms (grey-to-grey) and are said to cover 98% of the DCI-P3 color space. The contrast ratio is a typical 135,000:1 and a maximum of 1,500,000:1 under HDR10. They have two HDMI 2.1, two HDMI 2.0, one DisplayPort 1.4 and four USB 3.2 type A ports. HDCP is supported in version 2.3. A Harman Kardon sound system is integrated into the monitors and consists of two 10 W loudspeakers and a 15 W subwoofer.
The two monitors, weighing 15 kg, can be mounted using a 100 x 100 mm Vesa mount or the supplied stand, which weighs around 1.2 kg. They should have a power consumption of 0.3 W in standby and a maximum of 300 W. The Asus ROG Swift OLED PG42UQ is available with a recommended retail price of 1899.90 euros and the ROG Swift OLED PG48UQ for 1999.90 euros.
