If Guy Fieri were to design a monitor, it would look like the Asus ROG Swift PG348Q. The big and bold monitor boasts an ultra-wide 34-inch screen and cutting-edge curve, with bright orange accents and sharp, angular details.

Like most ultra-wide monitors, the Asus ROG Swift PG348Q has a 21:9 aspect ratio. The 34-inch IPS panel rocks a 3,440x1,440-pixel resolution, also standard for a monitor of its size, and a 100Hz refresh rate. One of the monitor's key features is Nvidia's G-Sync, which ensures visuals and graphics are smooth sailing, without screen tearing or lag.

The monitor itself looks both serious and playful. On the front, the edge-to-edge glass looks high-end and streamlined, and the slim bezels accent the huge screen, but the stand looks like a propeller you'd find on a toy helicopter and etched on the back panel are sharp, angular designs that serve no purpose other than to look "edgy." The good news is that it features ergonomic options. You'll be able to tilt, swivel and adjust the monitor's height to your perfect liking.

Information on pricing and availability is a mystery, so stay tuned to how it'll stack up to similar monitors, including the recently announced Acer Predator Z35 . Check back for details once they're announced and take a look at all the tech coming out of IFA 2015.
