Asus RoG Strix XG279Q review
Review written by 1USMUS

Note from Hilbert: today we have a guest article from 1USMUS, who you know from the DRAM calculator. He asked us if he could write up a review on his new monitor, and since he has the technical background and the equipment to test it properly, we've happily given him this opportunity. That said, I 'll hand over the content to 1USMUS with the note that the formatting and review style is slightly off compared to what you are used too from us.

Hey, everybody. Besides programming, supporting DRAM Calculator for Ryzen and writing serious materials about AMD Ryzen ecosystem in everyday life, I make advertising shoots. This branch works very closely with both image sensors and devices that have to display the perfect picture. In honor of today's debut, I will tell you about ASUS ROG XG279Q. In this article, you will find a slightly different approach to quality assessment of sensor and what is really appreciated in the world of professional picture. We will consider all the advantages and disadvantages of ASUS ROG XG279Q, a monitor that strives to take the lead in the niche of WQHD gaming. Here we go.



At the end of the summer at Gamescom 2019, ASUS first mentioned its 27-inch new generation Asus ROG Strix XG279Q gaming monitor. In early January, the product reached the Chinese retail chain and its specifications became known. However, due to a number of factors and lack of reviews, Asus ROG Strix XG279Q is still not or hardly available. Asus ROG Strix XG279Q is made based on a FAST IPS matrix with a little non-standard update rate of 170 Hz. The product is based on an Innolux panel (and sometimes AUO's M270DAN06.6 panel) that has 165 Hz as a standard, the panel thus is slightly overclocked. The screen resolution is WQHD or 2560 x 1440 pixels, the response time rated at 1ms, contrast ratio is 1000: 1, brightness is 400 cd/m², horizontal and vertical viewing angles are 178°/178°, color depth is 8 bits, and the listed DCI-P3 color gamut coverage is more than 90% or 125% of the sRGB palette. In addition, the monitors are supplied as factory calibrated screens.



Asus ROG Strix XG279Q complies with VESA DisplayHDR 400 standard (the lowest nit rating available) and supports HDMI Variable Refresh Rate synchronization technology in conjunction with the proprietary ELMB (Extreme Low Motion Blur) technology to reduce blur in motion. In addition, the model is listed as G-Sync Compatible but that is nothing more than Variable Refresh Rate compatible, and thus FreeSync compatible. Aura-Sync lighting elements are located on the back and stand.
