ASUS' Republic of Gamers Division has provided us with a plethora of great products over the past couple of years, and now it seems to be expanding into a new category to once again prove its worth. With the new monitor, named the ROG Swift PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor, ASUS has made what could be one of this year's best gaming monitors. At least according to the specifications. The new monitor will be 27 inches diagonally and have a resolution of 2560x1440. Since it is a gaming monitor from the ROG division, it has a 120+ Hz refresh rate, a 1 ms response time, and of course NVIDIA's new G-Sync technology to ensure that you will never be a frame behind the competition and it will provide much smoother gameplay. 

Furthermore, the monitor will come with ASUS' exclusive feature, GamePlus, which is an OSD overlay that enables crosshair and timer functions to be displayed on the monitor. These funcitons will, according to ASUS, "allow gamers to practice and improve their gaming skills."

As for connectivity, the monitor will have "an array of options" including DisplayPort 1.2 and two USB 3.0 ports. It is possible to mount the monitor on a wall with a VESA wall mount, and the stand allows for full tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustment. And ROG did not forget about multi-monitor gamers, so it reduced the bezel to 6 mm.
