Esports News – A gamer should keep in mind what to look for in a gaming monitor. It comes in a variety of styles and sizes, and the goal is to find the best deals in the market to achieve that perfect gaming experience which will ultimately transport you to virtual worlds.
This week on Tipify gaming equipment series, our last face-off for this month’s brand is between the Asus ROG Strix XG258Q and Asus ROG Swift PG278Q—two of the best monitors crafted for amateur and professional gamers. See which of the two excels in display, performance, design, and connectivity.
Asus ROG Strix XG35VQ
This 35-inch curved gaming monitor in full HD 3440×1440 resolution provides a hardcore, wholly immersive action. It is, in fact, the largest gaming monitor in Asus’ ROG family. With a size this big, it can carry the most comfortable and exceptional specs a gamer could ask for: 100Hz refresh rate, FreeSync support, 21:9 aspect ratio, 4ms response rate, and 2500: 1 contrast ratio. When using this, you see nothinge but the curves of the screen and the gaming adventure in front of your eyes.
The performance of the monitor gives off an extremely fluid gameplay without lags and stutter, that much is certain. The help of adaptive-sync or FreeSync technology eliminates screen tearing and choppy frame rates while minimizing display shatter and input lag. Additionally, all graphics and objects in motion will look sharper because of Asus-exclusive Extreme Low Motion Blur technology. Therefore, with these exclusive features present, you have the upper hand when playing first-person shooters, racing games, real-time strategy, role-playing, and sports titles. Design-wise, the curved black look of the monitor is enhanced by Asus’ Light Signature that lets you create and customize light-projection effects on the logo covers, one blank cover, and external objects.
Asus ROG Swift PG348Q
Facing the features of the Strix XG35VQ is the Asus ROG Swift Curved PG348Q Gaming Monitor. It’s an inch smaller compared to Strix, standing at 34 inches with a 21:9 aspect ratio for panoramic gaming. Given the size, it is the second largest gaming monitor in Asus’ ROG family. But what really differentiates this monitor from other Asus products is it was the recipient of the 2016 CES Innovation Award, thanks to the introduction and inclusion of new features such as the NVIDIA G-SYNC technology, Asus-exclusive Ultra-Low Blue Light, GamePlus and GameVisual technologies, and Flicker-Free software.
Despite having the same 3440×1440 curved ultra-wide IPS panel and 100Hz refresh rate like previous ROGs, it excels in software and performance. The monitor allows shifting from 60hz to 100hz any time. The lower response rate is for MOBA games, while the faster response rate is for first-person shooters. In terms of appearance, you’ll find that ROG Swift PG348Q is designed for multi-display setups as it showcases a frameless edge-to-edge design enwrapped with Armor Titanium and Plasma Copper color scheme. You can build the best gaming station without adding extra elements to the table.
