ASUS reveals ROG Strix XG49VQ Double-Wide 144Hz FreeSync 2 HDR monitor

ASUS has officially unveiled their latest ROG Strix series monitor, a FreeSync 2 Display that offers support for almost anything a user could want, from high-refresh rates to Adaptive-Sync and double-wide resolutions. Meet the ASUS ROG Strix XG49VQ, a 49-inch 3840x1080 monitor which supports both FreeSYnc 2 and VESA DisplayHDR 400. 

On the colour side of the spectrum, the Strix XG49VQ offers support for an extended colour gamut, one which is equivalent to 125% sRGB, while also providing high contrast levels and low latency display input, as is required by AMD's FreeSync 2 HDR specification.

The monitor will ship with support for VESA mounts, with the display's stock stand offering support for tilt, swivel and height adjustment. On top of this ASUS has also integrated support for technologies such as ASUS Shadow Boost, GameVisual and App Sync, as well as a blue light filter option.

The resolution and aspect ratio of this display makes it equivalent to two 1080p monitors sitting side-by-side, allowing the ROG StrixXG49VQ to act as a single screen alternative to a dual-monitor setup, which is great news for ultra-wide gamers. Such a setup with two displays would have a bezel sitting in-between a set to twinned monitors, making it unusable for most modern games, Ultra-wide monitors mitigate this issue entirely.  

ASUS has not revealed the retail pricing or release date of their ROG Strix XG49VQ monitor.

Really liking the clean and sleek dark design of their monitors now a days. With that small, discrete, yet premium looking ROG logo in the front. Really finding the right balance between being ”gamerish” looking, meanwhile also looking both mature and professional.

On the other side though, I’ve never really liked that stand on their latest monitors though. In my opinion, it completely destroys the overall look of the monitor and actually makes me not go for one. The more non gamerish stand, which the PG278Q/QR and PG279Q uses, are much nicer.Quote

When I grow up... I might have one of these... Especially since you can use FreeSync with an nVidia GPU when you're using an AMD CPU Quote
