ASUS launched a new display under its Republic of Gamers (ROG) brand. The 34" ROG Swift PG348Q comes with a host of enthusiast-class features. A 100Hz maximum refresh rate and support for G-Sync should make for buttery-smooth gameplay with hardware that can drive the display’s 3440x1440 resolution. The mildly-curved panel will probably offer a more immersive experience than a flat screen would, and a fully-adjustable stand should make finding a comfortable scren position easy.
The display pairs a distinctive silver-and-copper color scheme with an etched matte-black finish on the rear of the cabinet. Other nice extras include an LED lighting system built into the bottom of the stand and integrated speakers. Connectivity options include a DisplayPort 1.2 input and an HDMI 1.4 input, along with four USB 3.0 ports. Asus says the screen is available today through some of its "Powered by Asus" partners. The company didn't provide an official price for the display, but iBuyPower is offering the PG348Q as a $1200 option with its prebuilt machines. Asus says the PG348Q will be available from e-tailers beginning in May.
