Image Quality

The ASUS ROG Swift PG348Q has raised the bar of image quality on ultrawide curved monitors really high. The monitor features a 34 inch display size and an adequate resolution for its size, of 3440 X 1440.

The Ultra Wide QHD Panel supports a pixel density of 109 pixels per inch so that you can have the pixel density necessary to have a detailed and vibrant display.

The ultra wide curved monitor has an aspect ratio of 21:9 which many PC gamer’s prefer due to the immersiveness of a display being wrapped around your vision.

The excellent image quality is aided by a 100Hz refresh rate that many gamer’s will find adequate for a 1440p resolution. The colour is sharp, clear and more enhanced thanks to it being an IPS panel, which is known for having the most vivid colors of any panel.

ASUS eye-care technology is solely for the user’s comfort. Eye strain is completely eliminated through blue light filtering technique. The ergonomic enabled monitor makes sure you enjoy a realistically outstanding visual time with no concerns over the side effects, specifically for high time gamers who vigorously play for many hours of game time.

Maximum brightness is 300 cd per meter square. Pixel pitch is 0.0092 inch. 

Gaming Performance

One thing that ups the gaming performance is the 100Hz fast refresh rate, featured to provide you a stutter and flicker-free visual display. This is further enhanced by the monitor having G-Sync.

While it would have been nice for ASUS to include a 144Hz panel, this monitor came out in 2016 when 100Hz was king for a monitor this size. Because of that, you can find it steeply discounted from when it was first released. Whether you are racing or facing a battle, the ASUS PQ 348Q will take care of it all.

The NVIDIA G-Sync technology by ASUS is equipped to Sync the graphic card with your monitor frame to banish all kinds of screen ghosting and flickering. The system fights any screen tearing and creates a speedy image response resulting in a smooth visual experience.

It is important to note however that for a seamless screen time, the G-Sync technology needs GeForce GTX 980Ti and above to speed up the refresh rate to reach 100Hz claimed margin.

The 5 way USD Joystick aims to give you complete control over the screen settings as well as easy to understand controls and options. You can also access GamePlus through this control and adjust your gaming properties however you want them.
