OLED is set to hit mainstream PC gaming


ASUS ROG's new monitor offerings include the ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDM, which, as a 32-inch 4K OLED gaming monitor, claims the title of being the first in its category with a 240Hz refresh rate and 0.03ms response time.

Close behind, the ROG Swift OLED PG34WCDM, a 34-inch ultrawide OLED gaming monitor, mirrors those specs. Then there's the ROG Swift OLED PG49WCD which stands out with its insane super-ultrawide 49-inch display, offering a 144Hz refresh rate.

Routers, Evangelion collection, and more

The gaming router, ROG Rapture GT-BE98 Pro WiFi 7, set a benchmark by being the first to use the quad-band Wi-Fi 7 standard, capable of jaw-dropping speeds up to 30,000Mbps. This one-ups the non-Pro tri-band Wi-Fi 7 gaming router launched early in the year. Anime and gaming aficionados can delight in the super exclusive (and very beautiful) ROG x Evangelion collection which melds high-quality components with unique Evangelion-inspired designs.
