Asus is gearing up to revolutionize the monitor market with the upcoming launch of the ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDP monitor, set to debut at CES 2024. The monitor’s standout feature is its dual display modes: a 4K resolution at an astonishing 240Hz and Full HD at a groundbreaking 480Hz. This innovative technology positions the monitor as a significant advancement in the industry, likely leveraging an OLED panel sourced from LG.
This development comes as LG also steps up its game with the introduction of the UltraGear OLED gaming monitors. Among these, the 32GS95UE model, a 32-inch OLED monitor, mirrors Asus's offering by supporting both 4K at 240Hz and 1080p at 480Hz. LG's monitor stands out with its 98.5% DCI-P3 color gamut, an exceptional 1.5 million:1 contrast ratio, and an ultra-fast 0.03ms response time. LG is also planning to expand its lineup with more dual-mode monitors like the UltraGear OLED 32GS95UE and 39GS95QE, all featuring their “Dual-Hz” technology.
Asus unveils the world's first dual-mode gaming monitor
Earlier this year, Asus had already made waves with the introduction of the ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDM monitor. This model, with a 31.5-inch OLED screen, offers a peak brightness of 1000 nits and 4K 240Hz specifications, likely using a Samsung panel. The competition among top monitor manufacturers to produce 32-inch 4K 240Hz OLED monitors using panels from both LG and Samsung is intensifying.
The ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDP monitor, as shown in the teaser video, is expected to feature a nearly bezel-less 32-inch panel and a robust three-foot stand, possibly including support for DisplayPort 2.1. While the pricing remains undisclosed, the monitor is anticipated to carry a premium price tag, given its advanced technology and features.
Asus’s and LG's innovations signify a new era in monitor technology, offering gamers and professionals alike unparalleled visual experiences.
