Product Overview

ASUS ROG Strix XG27WQ is a 27-inch QHD 1500R-curved gaming monitor with 165Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, 125% sRGB color coverage, and DisplayHDR 400 compatibility.
Featuring a curved VA panel, the ROG Strix XG27WQ also offers 92% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space while offering higher refresh rate and low response time. It also offers 3000:1 contrast ratio, something that IPS panels usually cannot.
The XG27WQ uses ASUS's Extreme Low Motion Blur Sync (ELMB SYNC) technology that realizes 1ms response time. The FreeSync Premium Pro compatibility with the 165Hz refresh rate makes the ROG Strix XG27WQ an interesting option for immersive gaming.
A similar monitor with a flat IPS panel is the ROG Strix XG279Q.
