Best 360Hz Monitors

Later this year, we will see the world’s first 360hz monitors. They will be the world’s fastest displays,  perfect for e-sports and fast-paced competitive games like counterstrike or overwatch. They represent a major step forward for 1080p gaming offering refresh rates 1.5x faster than the best 240hz monitors.

This new generation of monitors will be the first to support NVIDIAs reflex latency analyzer a new technology that shows your system latency performance by measuring the time taken for your mouse clicks to result in a change of pixels (i.e. a muzzle flash). 

At the time of writing, there are four 360hz monitors scheduled for release later this year.

  1. ASUS ROG Swift 360 (TBC – Release September 2020)
  2. Alienware AW2521H (TBC – Release Q4 2020)
  3. Acer Predator X25 (TBC – November 2020)
  4. MSI Oculux NXG253R (TBC – November 2020)

As expected, the first generation will be 1080p 360hz monitors, but we look forward to seeing higher resolutions of 1440p or 4k at 360hz in future years (note that we are still waiting for 4k 240hz). Therefore, given the resolution limitation, we recommend casual (non-esports) gamers opt for a 1440p 240hz monitor.


1. ASUS ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN

ASUS ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN

Pros – Worlds first 360Hz Monitor | Extreme Performance | Well Built

Cons – Some Ghosting in Extreme Overdrive Mode

Screen size: 24.5-inches | Panel type: IPS | Resolution: 1920 x 1080 | Response time: 1ms | Refresh rate: 360Hz | Aspect ratio: 16:9  | Release date: October 2020

In January 2020 Asus announced the ASUS ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN, one of the world’s first 1080p 360hz gaming monitors. It was release in October 2020.

Performance:  Asus ROG PG259QN is the first 360hz monitor to market and delivers extreme performance at 1080p. To achieve the 1ms GtG response time you need to set the monitor into extreme overdrive mode which can introduce some ghosting. You may prefer to play in normal mode with a 2-3ms response time.

Design & Build Quality:  The monitor feels really well built and has a fully adjustable (and heavy) stand that can be put into portrait mode. The design on the front is fairly clean and the bezels are slim. The back of the monitor has a much more gaming style design with extra detailing in the plastic and the ROG logo.  There is a ports include 2 x USB ports, 3.5mm headphone jack, 1x display port 1.4b (required for 360hz).

OSD, Calibration and Setup: The OSD is controlled by a joystick and buttons on the back, or via the Auro Sync App.
