Asus has announced the release of the world’s first 500Hz Nvidia G-Sync gaming monitor
Today, Nvidia and Asus will unveil the world’s first 500Hz G-Sync display at Computex 2022. While we saw a prototype 500Hz gaming monitor earlier this year, Asus is now promising a shipping 24-inch 500Hz TN panel designed for 1080p esports titles. However, Asus has not mentioned pricing or a release date for their new ROG Swift 500Hz display.
The news comes just over two years after Nvidia and Asus collaborated to launch 360Hz gaming monitors for esports at CES 2020. PC gamers have often purchased 144Hz gaming monitors, although 240Hz panels are still uncommon. So while 500Hz may appear to be overkill, Nvidia thinks it will make a difference for competitive gamers seeking the best of the best.
Nvidia demonstrated its point with the amazing Phantom VEO 640S motion camera. This camera has 72GB of RAM and can capture Valorant gaming at up to 1,000 frames per second. This new 500Hz monitor, according to Nvidia, will make target tracking easier due to smoother animations, and less ghosting should reduce distractions during games. Reduced latency is the key to any high refresh rate monitor, and Nvidia claims you’ll be able to see players peeking out of cover faster than someone using a 240Hz or 144Hz monitor.
Naturally, a powerful gaming PC and GPU are required to run a 500Hz monitor. According to rumors, Nvidia will release its next-generation RTX 4090 card this summer, which would be a great companion for a 500Hz display. Because the Asus ROG Swift 500Hz monitor is 1080p, games like CS: GO, Valorant, and Overwatch should be able to hit the frame rates needed to fully utilize a 500Hz panel with a high-end GPU.
The ROG Swift 500Hz also incorporates Nvidia’s Reflex Analyzer to analyze system latency, as well as a G-Sync esports mode with an adjustable vibrance setting that, according to Asus, “allows more light to travel through the LCD crystals.” This panel also employs Asus’s unique esports TN (E-TN) technology, which the company says provides “60% faster response times than normal TN panels.”
If 500Hz is still too fast, Nvidia unveiled new G-Sync monitors earlier this year that allows you to choose between 1440p and 1080p settings. The 27-inch esports monitors have refresh rates of up to 360Hz and a special 25-inch 1080p mode.
