When choosing the perfect PC gaming monitor, hardcore gamers will be looking for a display that fulfils certain criteria. High refresh rate and low response time is a must-have for competitive gamers these days. The new TUF gaming monitor from Asus provides these features and more.
Asus has launched the VG249Q TUF Gaming monitor to bolster the range which already provides an extensive choice of sizes, including 35” UltraWide, 32”, 27” and 25” variants. The Asus TUF Gaming VG249Q adds a 23.8” viewable display with high refresh rate and low response time, to provide competitive and esports gamers with another option.
The TUF Gaming VG249Q features some impressive specs along with its Full HD 1920×1080 resolution panel.

The TUF Gaming VG249Q also includes 250 cd/m² maximum brightness, dynamic mega-contrast, and TUV Rheinland-certified flicker-free brightness adjustment, along with DisplayPort, HDMI and D-Sub connectivity.
