ASUS still plans on launching their 4k 144Hz HDR ROG Swift PG27UQ in 2017

Acer's equivalent display has been delayed until 2018.



Read more on ASUS' G-Sync HDR ROG Swift PG27UQ display.

It's cool and all but I just don't think 4K is worth it for a 27" screen. That said, that is one sexy chassis though. Might be worth it just for that!

For 4K I'd have to have 32" minimum, 27" is just too small for 4K.

How many times do we have to repeat this before Asus / Acer actually LISTEN. 27" is retarded for 4K!

Native 4k on a 28" was impossible. Things like Photoshop do not scale at all so they were unusable. Which really sucked hairy balls tbh. The writing was so small I would have to sit in my chair and propel my body up to the part with the edit/ etc on so I could read it. And even then I had to squint LF and give myself a neck ache.

It's OK for gaming of course (some of the text or subtitles was hard to read if the game didn't scale it, mind) but yeah, not ideal.

I still don't get this craze with 4K. Unless you are professional photo/video editor you don't need 4K. Unless you want to play WoW, LoL, DotA2, CS:GO or similar in 4K. But then you would want higher FPS which you can't get on 4K. There is no single GPU that can run new games in 4K on 60 FPS, and SLI scales pathetic at best. There are 2 IPS 1440p monitors with 144Hz and they are expensive as hell, and those are the ones most people want.

I have thew PG279Q IPS 1440P 165Hz G-Sync monitor and it's amazing, I've tried a lot of 4K monitors and I cannot see what the fuss is about, To my eyes in the vast majority of games there was a little bit less aliasing but that was it.

This actually answers a question I was pondering. 4K 60fps, or 1440p 100+fps as I wanna get a G-Sync monitor.

1440p all the way, 4k is just not worth it for the amount of power it requires.
