The panel is also HDR10 compatible for color and brightness that exceed that of ordinary monitors, treating gamers to ultra-realistic graphics.

Built-in NVIDIA® G-SYNC® processor ensures gaming visuals with no tearing, stuttering or input lag. Additionally, enthusiasts and pro-level gamers can count on a full variable refresh rate (VRR) range and variable overdrive for pristine image quality and outstanding, silky smooth gameplay.

ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN has an esports-friendly design that lets gamers focus on the onscreen action with features designed to keep distractions to a minimum.
