Superfast and smooth visuals

The 15.6-inch FHD IPS panel in ROG Strix XG16 offers exceptionally vivid colour. Its 144 Hz refresh rate delivers supersmooth visuals while G-SYNC compatibility eliminates screen tearing to provide outstanding gaming experiences.

Available in black or white

ROG Strix XG16 is the first ROG portable gaming monitor to be offered with an entirely white finish. The monitor is also available with a classic black finish. Both models feature a unique rear cover design that gives each a distinct look.

Immersive gaming anywhere, anytime

ROG Strix XG16 gives gamers the ability to play anywhere without having to worry about running out of battery life. It has a built-in high-capacity 7800 mAh battery that provides up to three hours of viewing at 144 Hz, and a quick-charge function enables up to two hours of use after just an hour of charging.

A fold-out kickstand props Strix XG16 up to one of several viewing positions in both landscape and portrait orientation to provide the perfect viewing angles. Strix XG16 includes a tripod socket that’s compatible with standard tripods, allowing the monitor to be used as a secondary screen for a laptop or a larger screen for mobile devices. The Strix XG16AHP models additionally include a bundled ROG tripod. For added convenience, the lightweight and compact Strix XG16 slips easily into the ROG sleeve.

Versatile connectivity

A micro HDMI and two USB-C ports provide versatile connectivity with a wide variety of devices, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, game consoles, cameras and more. When hooked up to a laptop or PC, the USB-C connection delivers both signal output and power to ROG Strix XG16. It can also be charged via the bundled USB-C cable and adapter.
