Asus announces the world’s first Nvidia G-Sync gaming screen at 500Hz

Nvidia and Asus announce the world’s first G-Sync 500Hz display at Computex 2022 today. While we saw an original 500 Hz game screen earlier this year, Asus promises a 24-inch 500 Hz TN transmission panel designed for esports titles running at 1080p. However, Asus has not yet announced the price or release date for its new ROG Swift 500Hz display.

The announcement comes just two years after Nvidia and Asus partnered to introduce 360 ​​Hz game screens for esports at CES 2020. PC gamers have typically bought 144 Hz game screens and even 240 Hz panels are still not very popular. ordinary. So 500Hz may sound like a lot, but Nvidia claims it will make a difference for competing players who want the best of the best.

Nvidia used the impressive Phantom VEO 640S motion camera to prove its position. This camera is equipped with 72 GB RAM to allow it to record brave gameplay up to 1,000fps. Nvidia claims that this new 500 Hz screen will make it easier to track targets thanks to smoother animations and that less ghosting will minimize distractions during games. The real key to any high-refresh screen is reduced latency, and Nvidia claims you will be able to see players peek faster than someone using a 240 Hz or 144 Hz screen.

Of course, to power a 500 Hz screen you will also need a powerful gaming computer and GPU. Rumor has it that Nvidia will release the next generation RTX 4090 card this summer, which would be an ideal companion for a 500Hz panel. The Asus ROG Swift 500Hz display is 1080p, which means games like CS: GO, braveand Overwatch should be able to achieve the frame rates required to actually use a 500 Hz panel with a high-tech GPU.

The ROG Swift 500Hz also includes Nvidia’s Reflex Analyzer for measuring system latency and a G-Sync esports function with adjustable vibration function that “allows more light to cross the LCD crystals,” according to Asus. This panel also uses a new TN esports technology (E-TN), which according to Asus offers “60 percent better response times than standard TN panels”.

If 500Hz still sounds too much, Nvidia also announced new G-Sync screens earlier this year that let you choose between 1440p and 1080p modes. The 27-inch esports screens include refresh rates of up to 360 Hz and a special 25-inch 1080p function.
