Product Overview

ASUS ROG Strix XG27AQM is an ultra-fast 27-inch QHD gaming monitor with 270Hz refresh rate, 0.5ms response time, and 97% of the DCI-P3 color space.
Featuring a fast IPS panel, the ROG Strix XG27AQM also supports ASUS' Extreme Low Motion Blur Sync (ELMB SYNC) as well as G-SYNC. While it is not slotted to be a contrast champion, this ROG Strix monitor offers DisplayHDR 400 support as well.
Ergonomically, the ROG Strix XG27AQM comes with a stand that is tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustable. Other features include TUV Rheinland-certified for low blue light emissions and for being flicker-free. It also comes with AURA SYNC RGB lighting.
A rather similar model is the ROG Swift PG279QM, which is only marginally slower.
