Asus has announced a new trio of ROG Strix XG-branded gaming monitors lineup Strix XG438Q, Strix XG49VQ, and Strix XG32VQR. All these monitors come up with large VA panels, FreeSync 2 support, and DisplayHDR certification. The trio of FreeSync 2 HDR monitors is available in 4K resolution or 144Hz refresh rate in big-screen, super ultra-wide and curved formats.
The trio of the ROG Strix XG monitors is optimized to minimize the input lag. The delay between the input and the signal appearance on the screen can cause a real problem on monitors and on TVs as well. Asus optimize the display pipeline with its GameFast Input Technology so that gamers can see better and react to on-screen actions milliseconds faster than their opponents.
The three gaming monitors also support FreeSync 2 HDR that has HDR enabled games tone map directly to the monitor’s color space, It removes the entire tone mapping step and its associated latency.
Talking about the XG49VQ who features a 49-inch ultra-wide 32:9 3840 x 1080 panel which is basically two regular 27-inch 1080p monitors stick side by side. It means that you won’t get high pixel rate when especially when you know that Samsung, Dell, Philips all have recently introduced 1440p equivalents. Asus has at least tried to provide the screen quality up to 144Hz that makes it suitable for fast-paced games which gives you an extremely wide field of view. It also supports DisplayHDR 400.
Lastly, the XG32VQ is a conventional model which comes with 144Hz 16:9 1440p and have DisplayHDR 400. It has 31.5 inches which are larger than most of the gaming monitors, again it will affect the pixel density of your Monitor. This model also covers 94 percent of the DCI-P3 gamut, whereas the others can manage up to 90 percent.
Asus has not announced pricing on any model but model XG49VQ and XG32VQ will be available at the end of this month while the XG438Q will release in spring 2019.
