ASUS and Acer to release new, top-end monitors!

Computex 2017 Taipei, Taiwan concluded a few months ago. With that comes several awesome tech announcements including laptops, desktop cases and other awesome techies stuff. What caught our attention was ASUS and Acer’s announcement with their variants of power house monitors.

Starting with UltraWide monitors;

ASUS’s variant of 35″ dream display is the ASUS ROG Swift PG35VQ

It sports a specification of 35″ Curved Screen Display3440 x 1440 Resolution (UWQHD) with 21:9 Aspect RatioAMVA Panel Display developed by AU Optronics, 200Hz Refresh Rate, and utilizes Nvidia’s G-Sync HDR10 and Quantum Dot technology. In addition to these nifty features, the PG35VQ also rocks an on-board ASUS Aura Sync feature, which means that if you’re rocking ASUS internals inside your PC, you can synchronize all your RGB lightnings!

Next up, we have the Acer Predator X35. It runs the same AMVA Panel Display developed by AU Optronics as PG35VQ so we should be seeing similar specifications on the monitor itself.


In the realm of 27″ Gaming Monitors, we have the ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ.

The PG27UQ features the following specifications, rocking 27″ 4K UHD Display, 3840 x 2160 Resolution with 16:9 Aspect Ratio, IPS Panel Display (more viewing angles), 144Hz Refresh rate and also utilizes Nvidia’s G-Sync HDR10 and Quantum Dot technology. Similar to that of  PG35VQ mentioned earlier, this monitor features RGB lightning at the back as well!

Finally, we have the Acer Predator X27.

This monitor features 27″ 4k UHD, 3840 x 2160 Resolution with 16:9 Aspect Ratio, IPS Panel, 144Hz Refresh rate and at 4ms Response Time! Similarly, it also features Nvidia’s G-Sync HDR10 and Quantum Dot technology, which is pretty similar to ASUS’s PG27UQ.


As of right now, there are barely any GPU in the market that can run at 4K resolution above 60FPS consistently on any games. So, hopefully the release of Nvidia’s Volta-Series cards would have enough power to run 4K at above 60FPS smoothly. All the monitors are said to release in Q3/Q4 of 2017 with the exception of Acer Predator X27 delayed to 2018. So, what do you guys think? Can your PC run these monitors?
