PRESS RELEASE



TAIPEI, Taiwan, August 15, 2017 — ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced ROG Strix XG27VQ, a 27-inch gaming monitor and the first model in the all-new ROG Strix XG series of gaming monitors designed especially for professional gamers. ROG Strix XG27VQ blends silky-smooth graphics and gorgeous aesthetics to deliver incredible gaming experiences.
ROG Strix XG27VQ is a Full HD display with an ultrafast 144Hz refresh rate and features ASUS-exclusive Extreme Low Motion Blur and Adaptive-Sync (FreeSync™) technologies for gameplay without tearing and stuttering. Its gaming-inspired design integrates onboard ASUS Aura RGB lighting and a customizable light signature enables projection of a unique lighting display on the surface below the monitor, adding cool ambience to any gaming setup or LAN party.

Experience the Curve



ROG Strix XG27VQ wraps its 27-inch panel around an 1800R curve, extending the user’s field of vision to give them the feeling of being fully immersed in the game. The display’s curvature ensures every point is equidistant to the eye, for a comfortable viewing experience, even during marathon gaming sessions. The curved display also delivers more immersive movie-watching experiences.

144Hz refresh rate and ASUS Extreme Low Motion Blur technology for super-fluid gaming visuals

With an astonishing 144Hz refresh rate, fast-moving visuals pose no problem for ROG Strix XG27VQ. There's no frustrating lag, so users will enjoy the upper hand in fast-paced first-person-shooters, racers, real-time strategy and sports titles. ROG Strix XG27VQ features the latest ASUS-exclusive Extreme Low Motion Blur technology, which eliminates smearing and motion blur, and makes objects in motion look sharper. Adaptive-Sync (FreeSync) technology delivers the smoothest, fastest, and most breathtaking gaming visuals imaginable by eliminating screen tearing and choppy frame rates, as well as minimizing display stutter and input lag.



Gaming-inspired aesthetics with a customizable light signature

ROG Strix XG27VQ continues the design legacy of ROG with its bold, streamlined design and iconic tripod stand. It also features ASUS Aura RGB lighting on the back and offers several lighting modes to provide a cool and stylish backdrop to any gaming setup.

ROG Strix XG27VQ also features a unique light signature that lets gamers create and customize light-projection effects. It includes two ROG logo covers and one blank cover that users can customize with a marker to create their own unique light projections to enhance the desktop surface and gaming area.

Exclusive ASUS GamePlus and ASUS DisplayWidget Software

ROG Strix XG27VQ features the ASUS GamePlus hotkey for in-game enhancements. The crosshair overlay provides four different crosshair options, while the onscreen timer positioned on the left of the screen helps gamers keep track of elapsed gaming time. The FPS counter lets users know how smoothly the game is running. The display alignment function provides three alignment lines on all four sides of the monitor to take the guesswork out of multi-display setups.
ASUS DisplayWidget is an intuitive software utility that lets users tweak settings or configure ASUS GameVisual, App Sync™, and Blue Light Filter. While adjustments to these utilities can be made via the on-screen display (OSD) menu or the navigational joystick and buttons, ASUS DisplayWidget makes accessing and using these various settings much faster and easier. GameVisual technology provides up to seven preset display modes (MOBA, RTS/RPG, FPS, sRGB, Racing, Scenery. and Cinema) to optimize visuals for different types of games.
