ASUS has introduced a new ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDM monitor that is likely one of the best displays you can get on the market for gaming (and likely design too). The new Swift OLED is a 32-inch 4K 240Hz OLED monitor that includes a QD-OLED panel. The display also packs its own cooling system to help the OLED tech from overheating – a common issue with OLED displays.
If anything, the ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDM checks all the boxes and comes with some impressive tech. Likely the most important factor to consider here is the QD-OLED panel. It is capable of producing vibrant colours and deep black levels while also delivering much brighter HDR highlights than your typical OLED TV and display.
The only real issue the world has with QD-OLED is its excessive heat. That’s why ASUS has implemented its own cooling system across the interior. ASUS the ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDM makes use of a custom heatsink that keeps its mainboard cool. The brand has also added a layer of lined graphene film to help dissipate heat build-up.
The second PG34WCDM “curved 1440p” model
We’ll have to test this cooling system for ourselves sometime in the future to see if it really stacks up to the hype. QD-OLED panels have been a challenge for most TV brands who struggle to keep their tech cool under normal conditions. Sony and LG, for example, have been forced to take drastic steps by adding multiple layers of metal to their OLED TVs to prevent overheating and panel damage.
The ASUS ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDM also comes with an incredible refresh rate of 0.03ms. It also supports NVIDIA G-Sync. ASUS has added USB-C PD to the monitor too. There’s also PiP and Smart KVM.
ASUS says this monitor is expected to arrive in early 2024. However, it will likely cost you quite a penny. The company is also making a curved version called the ROG Swift OLED PG34WCDM. This packs the same OLED tech but comes in at 34 inches, is curved and packs a 1440p display. It will likely cost just as much.
