Curved gaming monitors are no news. ASUS, however, with its ROG (Republic of Gamers) division, is shifting even further, and the latest ASUS ROG Strix XG27VQ with a recovery frequency of 144 Hz.
A 27 "Full HD monitor is ideal for playing online games as it offers Extreme Low Motion Blur and Adaptive-Sync (FreeSync) technologies that promise to eliminate image tearing and motion blur.
Extreme Low Motion Blur reduces blurry motion blur, and Adaptive Sync (FreeSync) offers finer and faster game content. Response speed is only 4 ms.
The above-mentioned 144 Hz refresh rate should allow immediate image display without delay, which is an advantage for fast FPS games and races. An exciting addition is the integrated ASUS Aura RGB light that lets you project your own signature.
You get a three-arm stand for the monitor, making it ideally suited to the classic ROG accessory. The ASUS ROG Strix XG27VQ is also equipped with the ASUS GamePlus keyboard shortcut, which can be used as an improvement in games.
For example, you can use the timer located on the left of the screen to help players watch the time elapsed. Also, the actual frames counter per second is also missing.
ASUS also has DisplayWidget, which allows players to configure ASUS GameVisual, App Sync, or Blue Light Filter. The GameVisual technology lets you set the view according to the current game genre. You can choose from up to 7 view modes: MOBA, RTS / RPG, FPS, sRGB, Racing, Landscape and Cinema.
Regarding connectivity, the ROG Strix XG27VQ monitor has one Dial-Link DVI, 1 x HDMI, 1 DisplayPort, and 1 x headphone jack. The weight of the monitor is 7.9 kilograms. The ASUS ROG Strix XG27VQ is set at 449 euros. What about this cool news story?
