ASUS PG48UQ vs LG 48GQ900-B: Specifications
ASUS ROG Swift PG48UQ OLED
When it comes to specifications, both the ASUS PG48UQ and the LG 48GQ900-B leave no stone unturned. ASUS PG48UQ boasts a gigantic 48-inch OLED panel with a 3840×2160 resolution and a native refresh rate of 120Hz (overclockable to 138Hz). It has an incredible 0.1ms response time, making it one of the fastest monitors on the market. The display really brings the best out of OLED technology; astonishing HDR, the deepest of blacks, and great brightness levels.
On the other hand, the LG 48GQ900-B also sports an OLED panel with a 3840×2160 resolution on a 48-inch display and an overclockable 138Hz refresh rate. Its response time of 0.1ms is the same as the ASUS PG48UQ’s. A minor difference is the VRR support: LG 48GQ900-B has AMD FreeSync Premium and G-Sync Compatible certifications, while ASUS PG48UQ has just the latter. It hardly makes a difference though. Also, both screens have HDMI 2.1 ready – music for ears if you’re a console aficionado.
