The first 27-inch, OLED gaming monitor from Asus is teased.
Asus revealed a brand-new, 240 Hz 1440p ROG gaming monitor with OLED display panel technology in a tweet by ROG Global. The monitor, with a typical display size of merely 27 inches, is known as the PG27AQDM and will be the first OLED gaming monitor from Asus. At CES 2023, the monitor will be completely disclosed. At that time, we may anticipate seeing precise specs, first impressions, and ideally the monitor’s pricing, which is probably going to be high.
The monitor’s design language is shown in the sneak peek; it has the same red and grey ROG motif as other ROG monitors and has a similar triple-legged stand. But the monitor’s very thin shroud that encircles the display’s borders is unique. This is a feature of OLED’s self-illuminating technology, which, in contrast to previous display technologies, requires less total depth from the monitor to work and gives the panel a futuristic appearance.
The PG27AQDM from Asus is the tiniest OLED monitor we’ve seen thus far, at just 27 inches. Given that Asus’ prior OLED implementations were limited to big format panels with sizes exceeding 40 inches, this capability alone will be important to the majority of gamers. For customers that sit at standard monitor viewing distances and still desire all the benefits OLED has to offer, the 27-inch form factor is particularly useful. The majority of the top gaming monitors are 27 or 32 inches in size.
Hardcore gamers who want the most responsive panel possible are certainly the target audience for the monitor’s 240 Hz refresh rate and 1440p (2560 x 1440) display. OLED technology has inherent advantages in this field, including industry-leading reaction speeds, superior colors and brightness for better enemy visibility.
The new LG 27′ UltraGear OLED gaming display, which has a reaction time of just 0.03ms, is a fantastic illustration of this. In contrast, the majority of gaming displays without OLED technology operate at best with response times of 1 or 0.5 milliseconds. We don’t know the specifics of the OLED screen that Asus is employing, but we anticipate that it will have reaction times that are comparable to those of other OLED displays.
