Nvidia and ASUS announce 360Hz gaming monitor for e-sports

Nvidia and ASUS announce 360Hz gaming monitor for e-sports

At CES 2020, Asus has announced a 24.5-inch (1080p) gaming monitor, which runs at 360Hz, and is powered by Nvidia’s G-Sync technology. First introduced in 2013, Nvidia’s G-Sync has known for its Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) technology that eliminates tearing by synchronizing the refresh rate of the display with the GPU’s frame rate.  Asus emphasized the use for Esports tournaments, as well as being the first 360Hz monitor of its kind. Just how fast is 360 Hz? In the blink of an eye, the ROG Swift 360 Hz will have already refreshed an incredible 54 times!

We know about 144Hz and 240Hz screens that are currently out on the market, which do make a performance advantage. Does this necessarily mean that the 360Hz screen will be noticeably better? You’ll need a powerful GPU to reach the types of frame rates where you’ll even notice a difference, and you’ll need to play competitive games like Overwatch or CS:GO to really take advantage of a 360Hz display.

Nvidia said that the higher frame rates benefit better animations and target tracking in game. Nvidia also mentioned that there will be a reduction of tearing and ghosting, ultimately benefiting players with enemy spotting and tracking. The 360Hz monitor displays frames every 2.8 seconds, that is anywhere up to six times faster compared to other current monitors. The millisecond improvement will make the difference in competitive tournaments. Nvidia mentions that flick shots can be improved up to 37 percent compared to normal monitors (60Hz).

The Asus ROG Swift 360 Hz gaming monitor will reportedly not be available until “later this year”. Date of launch or pricing has not yet been revealed.
