A decade ago, ASUS revealed what was reportedly the world’s first 144 Hz monitor. Now, the company has returned to announce that it has once again broken new ground with a 500 Hz gaming monitor.

ASUS refers to the monitor, which reportedly refreshes 500 times per second, as “the most fluid, the fast-paced motion you’ll find in modern Esports.”

When it comes to watching or playing intense fights, each second is crucial. ASUS says that the ROG Swift 500 Hz draws frames “more than eight times faster than typical 60 Hz displays” within a single second, giving players an advantage over their opponents. The company is also claiming that the monitor has revolutionary improvements in input lag and super low response times, with “60% better response times than standard TN panels.”

The ROG Swift 500Hz features a 24.1-inch (612 mm) HD panel. The inclusion of NVIDIA’s Reflex Analyzer enables players to tune their settings in order to achieve the lowest possible input lag. An enhanced Vibrance mode, meanwhile, grants players clear details and highlights of their games.
