    Asus ROG Swift PG35VQ

    Two years later, has the 200Hz UWQHD gaming monitor been worth the wait?

    Mmh. Gsync modules have been very slow to mature and DP2.0 which this should have has only recently been ratified. Great idea but tech and nvidia module prices need to come down before we will see what this monitor should have been.

    A shame really

    Nope, lost me on the external power brick and active cooling. At that price I'd have expected all of the wrinkles to have been ironed out during development.

    Anything over $300 for monitor is expensive.

    Re: Asus ROG Swift PG35VQ

    Why doesn't it just use two DP 1.4 inputs, like the Acer Nitro 4k?

    But bring on DP 20.0 and HDMI 2.1.

    You can not do G-Sync or FreeSync with two DP at the same time

    DP 20.0 is scheduled for release year 2080

    If you mean DP 2.0 there is no components for that yet.

    Also there was no HDMI 2.0 parts during development of this screen either.

    It will take up to two years before DP 2.0 gets in to monitors.

    External power brick is preferred to keep magnetic fields and heat out of the monitor.

    The fan is total bullrubbishrubbishrubbishrubbish, nVidia has NO excuse doing "G-Sync Ultimate" with a noisy fan.

    And yet, only a tiny minority of monitors actually has an external power supply...

    Re: Asus ROG Swift PG35VQ

    So close yet s far. This monitor has *most* of the features I want from my next monitor...Ultrawide, real HDR (not that awful HDR400), configurable FALD...but it's a VA panel, and it has smearing issues, and halo effect issues.

    For the money, it's just not good enough and there are better options imo. I'd take the LG38GL950G over this despite it's lack of HDR over this, but as it stands I'm not going for either - hopefully next year we'll see a screen that finally solves these problems.

    Re: Asus ROG Swift PG35VQ

    Some sound-dampening tiling on the wall behind the monitor would probably make a big difference to the fan noise

    I have tried the older ASUS PG348Q and I thought that was pretty good - and this is better.
    Such a pity that some areas of PC development jump ahead and we are left with compromises due to other bits not keeping up.
    But even using it with only 144Hz for gaming (wondering if movies would look any better going up to 180 or 200HZ), it is still better than the older version (except for the viewing angles).
    But then there is that price tag for not only this monitor, but for the PC to run it at 200Hz. :-(
    Would a PC with 2x 2080Tis be OK to run this?
    Maybe by the time we get all the components sorted in a couple of years, we will have an OLED option as well.

    Not good enough. For that money it should have been a flawless victory.
    Now to see what the LG 38GL950G can do.

    I have heard about this LG, the 3840 x 1600 shouls be good to see how well it works compared to the 3440 x 1440.
    And apart from the lower 144Hz (175Hz OC), the other specs also look good.
    Just got to see what the price i.
    Maybe a review/shoot out between these 2, eh?
    Or even better still, they should give them both to me and I'll do the review - in my dreams. :-)
