The ASUS ROG Swift PG32UQX ultimate Mini LED 4K high-dynamic-range (HDR) gaming monitor is ASUS’s latest gaming monitor announced at CES 2020. Variable refresh rates up to 144Hz and support for 10-bit color throughout the refresh rate range ensure that the PG32UQX always shows off your games, movies, and desktop applications at their best. NVIDIA G-SYNC support means you’ll enjoy smooth, tear-free gameplay even when frame rates fall below the PG32UQX’s native 144Hz refresh rate, and the incredibly capable panel and backlight inside let the display pass NVIDIA’s most stringent tier of G-SYNC certification—G-SYNC ULTIMATE—with flying colors. Here is a pre-order/in stock/availability tracker for ASUS ROG Swift PG32UQ Monitor:

Difference between with PG32UQX and PG32UQ:
- While the size, technology and many specs are the same, the underlying panel from AU Optronics will be different. This is associated with the backlight type as well.
- The QX model has a very high end Mini LED backlight with 1,152 local dimming zones designed for optimal HDR performance (for an LCD display). On the other hand the Q model has only a normal edge-lit dimming backlight with a far more limited number of zones (expected 16 zones but not confirmed). The QX will offer much better local dimming and HDR performance with smaller halos, less blooming and the capability to offer superior brightness levels and dynamic range.
- As a result of the backlight the QX model conforms to the VESA DisplayHDR 1400 standard, including a peak brightness capability of 1400 cd/m2. The Q model meets the HDR600 standard with a peak brightness of 600 cd/m2 possible. Remember the limitations above though related to the number of dimming zones (1,152 vs 18).
- The QX features a Native G-sync hardware module which is necessary to support the Mini LED backlight properly, allowing for effective and speedy local dimming at the same time as variable refresh rates. This Native G-sync module adds to the overall cost of the screen a bit, but will also help ensure reliable and consistent VRR performance, a very wide VRR range, the inclusion of certified variable overdrive to control response times and super low input lag. The Native G-sync module is still a very popular option for gaming. This means of course that it offers VRR from NVIDIA systems, but it is not yet clear whether it will also support AMD FreeSync over DisplayPort. The QX model has therefore been certified under the NVIDIA G-sync Ultimate scheme.
- On the other hand the Q model features VESA adaptive-sync allowing for VRR from both compatible NVIDIA and AMD systems. Certification under the NVIDIA “G-sync Compatible” scheme is in progress according to Asus. Adaptive-sync may lead to less reliable VRR performance and a smaller VRR range than the Native G-sync module, although if certification is passed with NVIDIA it should be pretty decent still.
- The Q model’s blur reduction backlight will also allow you to use this at the same time as VRR (the “ELMB-sync” technology), whereas on the QX model it is only available at fixed refresh rates.
- It is not known whether the two screens will offer different response time or lag performance although we would expect them to be fairly similar overall.
- The Q model features traditional OSD control buttons and a small joystick on the back, whereas the QX includes a new OSD Dial on the bottom edge as shown above.
- The QX model also has a built-in LiveDash 2-inch OLED panel. This build in display panel shows useful system information such as temperatures, voltages, fan speeds, or system frequency. LiveDash can also be used to display customized images or animations* to reflect your clan insignia or gamer tag.
