ASUS ROG Swift 360Hz: At a glance
The ASUS ROG Swift 360Hz is a 24.5-inch monitor that features a non-curved design with ultra-fine bezels on three sides and a slightly prominent border on the base. It offers a full-HD resolution and an industry-leading refresh rate of 360Hz with NVIDIA's G-Sync technology support. The monitor displays game frames once every 2.8ms, making it up to six times faster than a regular display.
The display will help you target enemies faster
According to NVIDIA, which has also worked on this display, the high frame rate will improve target tracking while allowing smoother animations in games as well as reduced tearing and ghosting. Hence, players will be able to see their enemies earlier. The company has also claimed a flick shot improvement of up to 37% over a regular 60Hz monitor.
