Asus made a huge bang with the new Asus ROG Swift PG32UQX termed as the “world’s first mini LED gaming monitor”, In fact, Asus declared it as the “4K endgame” with just one caveat. It ships with an HDMI 2.0 instead of going with an HDMI 2.1.
For context, the HDMI 2.0 is capable of serving 18Gbps of uncompressed bandwidth. This is nothing when compared to HDMI 2.1 which serves up to 48Gbps of uncompressed bandwidth and 128Gbps compressed bandwidth which puts the Swift PG32UQX to shame.
The latest Asus PG32UQX arrives with a mini LED setup which is better than LCD and even regular LED panels. It allows the display to have more lighting zones, a higher brightness level, and better contrast overall.

The PG32UQX has an HDR 4K resolution with a blazing fast 144Hz refresh rate. It comes with G-Sync Ultimate display that keeps it in a tab with the Nvidia GeForce GPU under the hood to prevent screen tearing. The 32-inch 4K gaming monitor has 1*0 percent of sRGB color space and 98 percent to DCI-P3 color gamut. The monitor arrives with a feature called LiveDash where an OLED panel is affixed in the lower bezel of the gaming monitor. Users can program it to showcase a myriad of system information including temperatures, fan speeds, voltages, etc.
The mini LED gaming monitor has connectivity features including a single DisplayPort 1.4 with a Display Stream Compressor, three HDMI 2.0 ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB 2.0 port, and two USB 3.1 ports.
The Asus PG32UQX is now available on the Asus Store with a price tag of $2,999.99 with pre-orders already ended. You can pay as low as $84/mo to get the 4K gaming monitor. Asus is scheduled to launch the first HDMI 2.1 gaming monitor sometime next month with a robust set of specifications and with mini LED display tech.
