ASUS is bolstering its lineup of FreeSync monitors this week with two brand new additions: the ROG Strix XG32VQ and ROG Strix XG35VQ. Both of these displays feature impressive curved panels and deliver the high refresh rates that PC gamers crave.
The ROG Strix XG32VQ is a 32-inch 1440p/144Hz monitor while the ROG Strix XG35VQ is a 35-inch ultrawide running at 3440×1440 and 100Hz. Both monitors come with an 1800R curvature, which results in less color shift and greater viewing comfort. Both also implement FreeSync, the open adaptive sync standard adopted by AMD. Like G-Sync, this results in gameplay without tearing or stuttering.
ROG Strix XG32VQ comes with a 125% sRGB gamut, so it will excel when it comes to color accuracy, all at a super smooth 144Hz. With the XG35VQ, the focus is mainly on delivering a 21:9 experience at lower cost while retaining a high 100Hz refresh rate. When running at 21:9, you gain an additional 35 percent of onscreen space compared to a 1440p 16:9 display, which will be handy for gaming and multitasking.
Both monitors come with ASUS Aura Sync lighting built in, so you can have the LED strip on the bottom of the monitor match your ASUS motherboard, GPU or peripherals.
The ROG Strix XG32VQ and ROG Strix XG35VQ will be available from late December onward with suggested retail pricing of £549.99 and £799.99 respectively.
KitGuru Says: I’ve been a fan of ASUS’s monitors for a while now and these look like two more excellent additions to the lineup. Are any of you currently looking to pick up a new monitor before the end of the year? Will you be going for 1440p/144Hz, or ultra-wide?
