ASUS 1080p monitor with 500 Hz refresh rate
NVIDIA high-refresh monitor lineup is growing.
ASUS ROG Swift 500 Hz is the newest monitor for e-sports, where every millisecond counts. This might not be the best gaming panel in terms of resolution or color accuracy (after all it’s a TN panel), but for competitive gaming those things do not matter as much as refresh rate.
The G-Sync 500Hz is a continuation of the program that started in 2013 when NVIDIA and monitor makers announced the first G-Sync powered displays with G-Sync modules. The 500 Hz refresh rate is the highest thus far, outperforming even the previous G-Sync tier of 360 Hz.
NVIDIA came up with this video comparison showing signs of ghosting even on ultra-fast 240 Hz panels:
Neither NVIDIA nor ASUS have revealed the launch date and the pricing for this new monitor. One might guess it will not be cheap.
Next-Gen 500Hz G-SYNC Esports & NVIDIA Reflex Gaming Monitors Unveiled
Ever since we revolutionized gaming monitors with the launch of G-SYNC in 2013, we’ve worked with our partners, and panel manufacturers such as AU Optronics, to craft faster and even-better displays. Less than a decade later, we’ve now got G-SYNC gaming monitors and TVs in every combination of size, speed and resolution that you could want, but progress still doesn’t stop.
At COMPUTEX 2022, we’re introducing the newest member of the NVIDIA G-SYNC family – the ASUS ROG Swift 500Hz Gaming Monitor. This 500Hz display has been designed from the ground up for esports, using a brand new “Esports TN panel” for maximum motion clarity. It also boasts NVIDIA G-SYNC Esports Mode with adjustable esports vibrance, and of course complete NVIDIA Reflex Analyzer support, allowing users to measure end to end system latency when using a NVIDIA Reflex mouse and GeForce GPU.
500Hz G-SYNC Esports displays are even faster, have even lower response times, and are specifically tuned for competitive games such as CS:GO, Valorant, Overwatch, and Rainbow Six Siege. Load up the video below to see how this new, cutting-edge display technology further improves target tracking, and allows competitive gamers to spot enemies even sooner:
