Asus ROG Swift PG35VQ Review

Asus ROG Swift PG35VQ Review

The Asus ROG Swift PG35VQ is the world’s most feature-packed ultrawide-aspect gaming display. Curved widescreen with a resolution of 3440 x 1440, Nvidia G-Sync Ultimate, DisplayHDR 1000 compatibility, and a staggering 200Hz refresh rate. Unsurprisingly, it’s prohibitively costly – depending on which side of the Atlantic you’re on. Editors of 4K video with a higher budget may wish to choose the Apple Pro Display XDR for its larger screen.

Color Numbers are awe-inspiring, with a hint of mystery:

The Asus ROG Swift PG35VQ gaming display is one of the best we’ve seen. However, it scored 71.4 percent on the DCI-P3 test, the lowest we’ve ever seen from a gaming monitor. This is especially strange considering Asus’ website rating of 90%. In a ColorChecker test designed to determine how color-accurate a monitor is for professional creatives, the Asus PG35VQ gaming display achieved an amazing 0.91 dE (deltaE; anything below 2.0 is superb out of the box). I measured a minimal input lag of 2.2ms using an HDFury 4K Diva, which isn’t the fastest we’ve seen but is only a fifth of a millisecond slower than the Predator X35. Only CS: GO and DOTA players will notice the difference in speed.

OSD and Setup:

The PG35VQ from the Republic of Gamers is a gigantic 35-inch widescreen that weights 13.6kg and is 833mm wide by 306mm deep. RGB LEDs flare onto your desk at the base, and a large ROG logo with extra lighting and eye-catching patterns adorns the back. Unfortunately, none of the USB ports are on the panel’s sides; instead, they’re hidden around the back and impossible to reach.

Anecdotal Testing:

The PG35VQ proved to be unparalleled in terms of absolute brilliance when it came to gaming. If you’ll excuse the pun, everything a gamer could want is on full show. The ultrawide size envelops you in a world of gleaming, vivid color in our blacked-out testing room. It’s something you have to see for yourself.

Image Quality:

The contrast ratio of the Asus ROG Swift PG35VQ display is 2,715:1, which is greater than Asus’ advertised 2,500:1 value. When gaming with the traditional sRGB gamut, it’s also high enough to give excellent brightness, depth, and punch. The average Delta E of 1.49 at factory settings is below the point where human eyes perceive problems, yet close to the 6500K optimum. The Asus PG35VQ boasts a strong input lag of just 4.9ms, which is more than adequate for e-sports. It’s quiet, but it’s always on, and its high-pitched whine can be heard in calmer areas. The panel’s backlight strength dropped by up to 14% in the corners, which is better than most curved panels and won’t be noticed during gaming.


  • HDR photography is stunning. 
  • Input latency is minimal 
  • DAC for headphones built-in 
  • OSD that responds
  • With a refresh rate of 200Hz, you’ll have an amazing gaming experience.

If you have the funds, the Asus ROG Swift PG35VQ has the features, power, and prowess to remain at the top of the ultrawide gaming monitor market for the foreseeable future.
