    Once again, I am having trouble locking down the panel type, but ASUS may have checked off all the right boxes here for gamers who are looking to update their display: the PG35VG is big, refreshes at 200Hz, offers tear-free gameplay courtesy of G-Sync, and even includes localized dimming technology for deeper blacks. Acer also has a take on this panel with their Predator X35; both monitors are covered here in an NVIDIA posting.

    The ROG Swift PG35VQ conforms to the HDR10 standard and draws from both an expansive palette of colors and a wide range of contrast. We employ quantum dots to broaden the spectrum of tones the display can produce, making gradients smoother and images more lifelike overall. Using these luminescent nanoparticles allows the monitor to support the wider DCI-P3 color space typically associated with cinema projectors. In addition to satisfying gamers, the PG35VQ is likely to entice content creators who want to mix work and play on the same display.

    What's this going to cost? A healthy liver? Guess I won't ever own this monitor. But then again, I think it's too small.

    They just checked all the boxes I needed to upgrade from my Samsung 40ju7500 . Little smaller but with gsync and 200hz. I'm in. Sure it will be over 1k , but if it's not to much over 1k I'll be picking one up.

    The 34" ROG and Predators are still selling for ~$1200 so I doubt these will cost anything less than $1500. But how many 1080 Ti's will be necessary to power these beasts? This is one expensive build.

    512 FALD zones... Probably going to cost the same or close to the 27" 4K. I'm going to say between $1,500 and $2,000.
    A single Ti is plenty for 3440x1440.

    I have an x34 and a single 1080 works fine

    I'll be upgrading to this!

    Probably another AHVA (IPS-type) panel since it's AUO. We haven't seen any "high-end" displays use a TN since the PG278Q and S2716DG. Plus, I'm pretty sure there has never been an ultrawide display that uses a TN panel to date. The gamma shift would start to be a problem with that aspect ratio.

    Getting close to the mark... I currently have a HP Omen 32" 2560x1440 with a GTX 1080... Upgrading to a 1080 Ti and getting this monitor is very tempting but I really would like the same monitor specs at 40" since I really love having more vertical real estate. At 35" diagonal, it's still too skinny.

    I couldn't afford one right now but I love the combo of high refresh rate and high resolution. Hopefully the price drops while I am saving up money. Need a GPU and CPU upgrade first.

    At 60 FPS maxed, yes. A single 1080ti will not remotely be enough for high refresh gaming at UW 1440p w/ maxed settings.

    I have a gtx 1080 and it will run most games at uw 1440p easily, several like dirt rally are over 100fps with ultra settings, very rare for it to drop below 80 fps.

    And? You don't have to hit 200 FPS with G-Sync. You'll be able to go 60-100 FPS in a lot of games without compromises. And you don't always need to run Ultra with 8x TRSSEQOMGWTFBBQ AA.

    Wow, 100 MHz? Are there any games you play that can get close to 100,000,000 FPS?

    Sorry for being that guy...

    Probably just a mid-90's CPU speed flash back. Could happen to any of us.

    I have an x34 and a TI, and I only get 90fps on games when maxed out, so I'm assuming this screen is more for Volta/Navi generation.

    35" and only 1440p still. I'm holding out for the 38" 3840x1600 monitors like the LG one, but with G-Sync. 75-144hz for me is fine though. I don't expect to hit 200+ fps in most games I play at these resolutions even with two 1080 Ti in SLI.

    I hope they will start making these in the 34 inch wide screen with 3440x1440. I really like my LG UM95. I only wish it had a had higher refresh rate. I like that resolution. I have been able to run most games either at max or near max settings. I am running on a 980ti at the moment.
    I used to run three 1920x1200 HP monitors in Surround mode at 5760x1200. I actually like the continuous screen of the ultra wide enough to forfeit the extra pixels of multi-monitor gaming.
    If they released a 34-36 inch version of either monitor and they are VESA mountable, I would probably get one. Not sure about the curve though. I have never gamed on a curved monitor. I wonder if it would be similar to using three monitors in an array?

    I think you are confused sir. This is a 3440x1440 monitor running at 200hz.

    What am I confused about?

    Edit: I see now. I misread on the Nvidia page. I thought it said these were 27" monitors.
    Well damn. Now I may have to consider one.
    Price pending.

    Why only 1440p? I refuse to step down in resolution.

    If we must use an X:9 size ration instead of X:10, then give me 21:9 with 2160P and cables with appropriate bandwidth. At least that would give me a solid reason to upgrade my videocards even without playing first person shooters.

    Beastly specs. And here I was considering that new Predator Z35P (or whatever it is). HDR is the clincher here.

    1440p ultrawide is the ideal sweet spot for ultrawide gaming right now. 2160p ultrawide would be bonkers. You're talking almost 11 million pixels at that point. And the cost of a monitor like that would be insane.

    This sounds very interesting indeed, it might be time to sell my PG278Q.

    Does this have a ULMB/strobing option? I much prefer that to GSync.

    I keep giving these new high frame rate G-Sync monitors the side-eye but I don't know if I can bring myself to trade off my nice calibrated pro monitor. I wish I could get one to test out and see if I miss the nicer colour (or if maybe these ones are just as good). While I would like smoother motion, and the local dimming would be cool, I spend more time looking at a desktop so having a nice image is a higher priority than nice motion.

    Remember back when a whole lot of surplus Dell 2560x1600 monitors went on the market after online poker took a hit in popularity/legality? There were plenty of people with triple landscape or triple portrait arrays pushing approximately 13 million pixels with much older video cards. It can be done and 5K monitors are 16:9 with about 14.75 million pixels.
