ASUS and Nvidia introduce the world’s first 360 Hz gaming monitor at CES 2020. The monitor is appropriately named ROG Swift 360 Hz.
ASUS explains the push towards 360 Hz with the rapidly grown esports competition scene, grandiloquently stating they have become “elite athletic events”. They also say that in their tests they’ve found that not even the 240 Hz gaming monitors are fast enough for CS:GO (and Overwatch) when played on newest PC tech.
To put it short: the new 360 Hz monitor can display 50% more frames on a second than a 240 Hz monitor. The improvement from the most widely used 144 Hz monitors will be massive.
According to The Verge, Nvidia boasts that the improved frame rate will “improve target tracking with smoother animations in games, reduce tearing and ghosting, and, obviously, let players see enemies earlier”. Especially the target tracking is quite obviously a statement that will excite all CS:GO players.
The 24.5 inch ROG Swift 360 Hz will include an “advanced G-Sync processor” and it runs on 1080p resolution. It will be available later in 2020 but there is no information about its pricing yet. We will keep you updated.
