While there have been a lot of talk about 4K-monitors it is easy to forget that those monitors still won’t be a good choice for gamers as basically no video card still can drive them at this time. That is why this new monitor from ASUS is much more interesting too me.
It is a WQHD monitor which means a resolution of 2560×1440. With a 1 ms response time, 120 MHz refresh rate as well as support for G-Sync this is really a monitor that deserves the ROG-brand.
