ASUS has introduced the ROG Swift OLED PG49WCD gaming monitor, joining its already impressive OLED monitor portfolio. The ASUS ROG Swift OLED PG49WCD boasts a massive 49-inch display with a resolution of 5120×1440.
What Asus is calling super ultra-wide, will be similar to having two 16:9 1440p monitors rolled into one monitor with a curvature of 1800R. It features an OLED panel delivering vibrant colours, exceptional contrast, and perfect black levels for a truly cinematic gaming experience. It offers 10-bit colour support and covers 99% of the cinema-grade DCI-P3 colour gamut for lifelike, vibrant colours. It also meets the requirements of a VESA DisplayHDR True Black 400 certification.
Designed specifically for gamers, the ROG Swift OLED PG49WCD monitor features a 144 Hz refresh rate and an ultra-fast 0.035ms response time. These specifications ensure smooth gameplay and minimize motion blur, allowing gamers to react swiftly and accurately in FPS titles. It is equipped with AMD FreeSync Premium Pro ensuring a tear-free, low-latency gameplay.
Connectivity options on the ROG Swift OLED PG49WCD include DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.1, and USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of inputs. It also features a Type-C power with 90W power delivery to charge up a connected device. The monitor also features a built-in USB hub, making it convenient to connect peripherals and accessories.
Asus has incorporated Smart KVM into the monitor that lets you control two different PCs with the same keyboard and mouse. Without the need for specialised software or other hardware, your mouse will seamlessly transition between the two devices as you move it from one side of the screen to the other.
With a large custom heatsink, the mainboard of the monitor is kept cool while the graphene film behind the entire panel keeps the panel cool. Asus claims that using these cooling methods will let the monitor reach a peak brightness of up to 1000 nits.
While ASUS has not disclosed the pricing or availability details for the ROG Swift OLED PG49WCD monitor at the time of writing.
