ASUS ROG Brings World’s First Glossy WOLED & Dual-Mode LCD Gaming Monitors

ASUS ROG Brings World's First Glossy WOLED & Dual-Mode LCD Gaming Monitors

The two new gaming monitors introduced by ASUS recently have their own “World Firsts” – the new ROG Strix OLED XG27AQDMG is the world’s first glossy WOLED gaming monitor; while the ROG Strix XG27UCG is the world’s first dual-mode monitor utilized on the LCD panel, featuring 4K 160Hz and FHD 320Hz mode.

Despite most gaming monitors opting for anti-glare panels for better visibility and less reflections, the ROG Strix OLED XG27AQDMG’s takes an opposite route with a glossy panel instead. Glossy panel has its advantages – in this case, the ROG monitor boasts 20% brighter images compared to its predecessors, as well as maintaining deep blacks, vibrant colors, and sharper images.

The 27-inch OLED panel itself comes with the new anti-flicker technology that provides three setting levels to combat the flicker, which is caused by the way variable refresh rate (VRR) is triggered from OLED pixels. Some people may perceive this flicker which can deteriorate the viewing experience. That aside, the panel features QHD resolution with 240Hz rate, with NVIDIA G-SYNC support. The monitor will be available starting May 30, 2024 at the price of $699 (~RM3,288)

Moving on to the ROG Strix XG27UCG, this monitor comes with the dual-mode panel technology that allows the panel to switch between 4K 160Hz and FHD 320Hz via a monitor hotkey. The “world’s first” part comes from the use of IPS panels – previous implementations of dual-mode monitors all involves OLED technology.

Additionally, ASUS has announced that a new firmware update is now available for the ROG Swift OLED PG27AQDM (which we previously reviewed), which now enables the OLED Anti-flicker feature. The update can be downloaded from the product’s support page.

Pokdepinion: Needless to say, the glossy panel is best used in environments with less harsh lighting.
