4K gaming monitor with Nvidia G-Sync

Key Features:
  • 27-inch, 4K monitor with IPS panel
  • 60Hz refresh rate with Nvidia G-Sync (Nvidia GPUs only)
  • DisplayPort and HDMI inputs, 2x USB 3.0

If you fancy doing your gaming at 4K then the Asus ROG Swift PG27AQ is the monitor for you. It uses Nvidia G-Sync technology to help smooth out tears and stutters, though this is only a 60Hz panel rather than than the 144Hz refresh rate preferred by pro gamers.

Besides this, the Swift is a rather good-looking monitor and the general image quality is right on the money. A 0.19 nit black level and 1,012:1 contrast ratio is good and it covers an impressive 99.2% of the sRGB colour space. Input lag of just 10ms is excellent for gaming, too.

The only serious problem here is having a PC powerful enough to run games well at a 4K resolution, and the hefty price of the monitor itself. Also, you must have an Nvidia GPU to use G-Sync.

Price: £525
