asus pg348 teaserWith the new ROG PG348, ASUS bring a 34” gaming display with a curved surface, G-Sync support and maximum 100 Hz refresh rate alongside other notable gaming features. Whether the latest ROG display represents a successful alternative to the established competition, we’ll find out today.

21:9 curved displays are among one of the most wanted items for gamers. Thanks to the curved surface, the gamer feels truly emerged in what they’re playing. It’s for that reason it comes as no surprise that ASUS has thrown their hat into the ring. For several months the Predator X34 from ACER has been the one that sits at the top of gamers wish lists.

{ASUS have come to the 34” party quite late but bring what they claim is a premium product. On paper ASUS leave a rounded impression. The 34” IPS panel carries with a resolution of 3440 x 1440. Thus, the graphics card grunt needed is below that of a 4K panel. Tearing effects are removed with the help of G-Sync while a maximum refresh rate of 100 Hz helps ensure smooth gameplay. Furthermore, the ASUS ROG PG279Q carries with it a number of gaming features and aggressive design.

Coming in at around the $1,300 mark, it should come as no surprise that the model is similarly priced to the Predator X34 from Acer. Those looking to spend this kind of money and rely on an AMD graphics card could look at the smaller, but excellent Eizo Foris FS2735.
