ASRock is preparing to enter the monitor market with a range of new gaming monitors. As spotted by an eagle-eyed hardware detective momomo_us (opens in new tab)The PG34WQ15R and PG27FF will be the first gaming monitors from the famous manufacturer and will arrive with AMD FreeSync Premium support.
AMD listed the ASRock PG34WQ15R and PG27FF on the chipmaker list of FreeSync monitors (opens in new tab). The “PG” prefix on the model names suggests that ASRock will sell the monitors under the company’s Phantom Gaming (PG) product line, which caters to gamers.
The PG34WQ15R comes with a 34-inch VA panel displaying a resolution of 3440×1440. The monitor has a refresh rate due to the resolution of 165 Hz. Of course, you’ll need to use DisplayPort because of the high resolution. The maximum supported refresh rate over HDMI is 100 Hz. A small picture of the PG34WQ15R is available from a Presentation of Korean license (opens in new tab), showing the monitor with a curved design. It appears that TPV Electronics (Fujian) Co., Ltd manufactures the PG34WQ15R for ASRock.
On the other hand, the PG27FF has a 27-inch IPS display. The monitor features a more common 1920×1080 resolution and displays a 165 Hz refresh rate. It doesn’t matter if you’re using a DisplayPort or an HDMI port as an input, as you’ll get 165Hz regardless. A registry at the DKP (opens in new tab) (Digital Content Protection) reveals that we can expect at least three variants of the PG27FF: PG27F15R, PG27FF1A and PG27F15R2A. At the moment we do not know what the difference between the four models is.
The PG34WQ15R and PG27FF carry the AMD FreeSync Premium badge. Additionally, both monitors support Low Frame Rate Compensation (LFC) and at least 120 Hz at 1080p. Gamers often overlook LFC, but the feature ensures that the monitor supports smooth gameplay when the game’s frame rate drops below the monitor’s minimum refresh rate. The minimum refresh rate for the PG34WQ15R and PG27FF is 48 Hz.
Pricing and availability for the PG34WQ15R and PG27FF are unknown. However, the PG34WQ15R is a premium monitor and will likely cost a small fortune.
