Asus ROG Swift 500Hz: Specs and Features
The Asus ROG Swift 500Hz comes with one of the fastest display panels, supporting up to a 500Hz refresh rate, to deliver an ultra-smooth gaming experience, which is its main highlight. This means that content on the screen can refresh 500 times per second. Asus claims that this is eight times faster than the standard 60Hz displays.
Designed to cater to the needs of professional gamers, the ROG Swift 500Hz offers a 24.1-inch Full HD display with ultra-thin side and top bezels, and a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. To achieve this, Asus used a new Esports TN (E-TN) technology for the panel, which offers a 60% better response time than the standard TN panels.
Furthermore, the company has integrated Nvidia’s Reflex Analyzer and G-SYNC right into the ROG Swift 500Hz which will allow gamers to tune the display settings to get the lowest possible input lag in competitive multiplayer titles like CS: GO, Valorant, Apex Legends, or Call of Duty Warzone.
Additionally, there is a Vibrance mode built into the monitor, which is specially tuned for esports and allows more light to travel through the LCD crystals of the panel.
