Asus has introduced the ROG Swift PG349Q, one of those rare ultra-panoramic curved monitors with high refresh rates. It is a 34-inch monitor with an aspect ratio of 21: 9 and a native resolution of 3440×1440. Its refresh rate is 120 Hz and is compatible with Nvidia G-Sync technology. Apart, the panel is IPS type, but has a slightly more pronounced curvature than normal (1900R instead of 1800R), but maintains viewing angles of 178º / 178º.
In another order of things, it has a maximum brightness of 300 cd / m2, 4 ms (grey to grey) of response time, a contrast ratio of 1000: 1 and has anti-flicker brightness adjustment. The PG349Q features RGB lighting on the back and on the stand itself, in case you want to give a glass to the wall behind the desk, and can be controlled with the Aura Sync RGB software. To connect it, you can take advantage of its HDMI or DisplayPort inputs, apart from a USB connection to control the lighting. We do not know if it has a USB accumulator as it happens with other similar models, although we do not know the price at which it will be released or the launch date, we imagine that it will rise from 1200 euros.
Frankly, we do not know if a monitor of these characteristics could enter our list of monitors to play. Asus has been quite conservative with the specifications of the monitor. Anyone would say that they are trying to get rid of the inventory of G-Sync modules, because we have not seen a trace of HDR, 144 Hz or other features that would make this panel a more interesting product for the public.
