ASUS Announces New ROG Strix Series Gaming Monitors: XG27UCS and XG27ACS

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) has introduced two new models in the ROG Strix series of gaming monitors, the XG27UCS and XG27ACS. These monitors are designed with an innovative stand that occupies less space and includes a groove for mobile devices, along with USB-C connectivity to minimize cable clutter. They incorporate AI-powered GamePlus technology for enhanced gaming performance. The XG27UCS model offers 4K resolution with a refresh rate of 160 Hz, while the XG27ACS provides 1440p resolution at 180 Hz, both equipped with a 1 ms response time. These monitors are compatible with NVIDIA G-SYNC and feature HDR technology, ensuring a seamless and immersive gaming experience. The XG27ACS is available in a classic black finish, and an all-white variant (XG27ACS-W) caters to gamers with white-themed setups.

Both monitors utilize Fast IPS panels, supporting high refresh rates and minimal response times for fluid visuals in fast-paced games. G-SYNC compatibility and Extreme Low Motion Blur Sync (ELMB Sync) technology prevent screen tearing and motion blur. The monitors are DisplayHDR 400 certified, cover a wide DCI-P3 color gamut for vibrant HDR content, and use ASUS Variable Overdrive 2.0 to dynamically adjust overdrive settings, offering 20 levels to reduce ghosting.

The monitors also feature AI-driven GamePlus technology, which analyzes on-screen content in real-time to optimize the crosshair for improved aiming accuracy. The Dynamic Shadow Boost function enhances visibility in dark areas without overexposing bright sections, providing a tactical advantage in dimly lit scenes.


Both models offer multiple connectivity options, including DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0, and USB Type-C, supporting a range of devices from PCs and laptops to gaming consoles. The ASUS DisplayWidget Center software allows users to adjust settings easily via a graphical interface, bypassing traditional on-screen display menus. Each monitor undergoes rigorous quality control testing to ensure superior color accuracy and performance, with calibration reports accessible through the OSD menu.

The XG27ACS is available for purchase at a starting price of $269, and the XG27UCS will be priced at $449 upon release. In line with ROG's environmental commitments, both monitors are packaged using FSC Mix-certified materials, reflecting the brand's dedication to sustainability.
