Product Overview

VG279Q

Designed for intense, fast-paced games, ASUS VG279Q is a 27” Full HD gaming IPS display with an ultra-fast 1ms (MPRT) response time and blazing 144Hz refresh rate to give you super-smooth gameplay. VG279Q features Adaptive-Sync (FreeSync™) technology to eliminate screen tearing and choppy frame rate.
Gamer-centric features like ASUS GamePlus enhances your in-game experience, while GameVisual provides various pre-set display modes to optimise visuals for different types of games.


Incredible 144Hz Refresh Rate

With an astonishing 144Hz refresh rate, fast-moving visuals pose no problem for VG279Q. There's no frustrating lag, so you get the upper hand in first person shooters, racers, real-time strategy and sports titles.


Lightning-Fast 1ms (MPRT) Response Time with ASUS Extreme Low Motion Blur

ASUS VG279Q is the fastest in its class, boasting a 1ms response time (MPRT) to eliminate smearing and motion blur. There's also the ASUS Extreme Low Motion Blur (ELMB) Technology to make objects in motion look even sharper, so gameplay is more fluid and responsive.


Adaptive-Sync (FreeSync™) Technology for Smooth Gameplay

Adaptive-Sync (FreeSync™) technology delivers the smoothest, fastest, and most breathtaking gaming visuals imaginable by eliminating screen tearing and choppy frame rates, and by minimising display stutter and input lag.


IPS technology for Consistent, Accurate Colour

ASUS VG279Q gives you superior images with outstanding colours thanks to an astounding 1,000:1 contrast ratio. Wide 178-degree viewing angles ensure minimal distortion and colour shift even when you're viewing from extreme positions.


ASUS Shadow Boost Technology

ASUS Shadow Boost technology clarifies dark areas of the game world without overexposing brighter areas — improving overall viewing while also making it easier to spot enemies hidden in dark areas of the map.


GameFast Input Technology – Because Milliseconds Count

Input lag on an LCD monitor is typically much lower than a TV, and ASUS VG279Q features GameFast Input Technology to further minimise input lag. This technology provides much faster motion delivery so you'll always be up to speed with in-game action at the precise timing.


Rich Connectivity Options, a Narrow Bezel Design

ASUS VG279Q has extensive connectivity options, including dual-link DVI-D, DisplayPort 1.2, and HDMI(v1.4) port, so you can hook it up to a wide array of multimedia devices. It has a super-narrow 1cm bezel ideal for an immersive and panoramic gaming setup.


Smart Cable Management

A smart cable management design feature found on the stand of VG279Q helps you organise and hide cables to keep your gaming area tidy.


Ergonomically Designed and Wall-Mountable

ASUS VG279Q is specially designed for long marathon gaming sessions. Its ergonomically-designed stand lets you adjust the tilt, swivel, pivot, and height of the monitor so you always find your ideal viewing position. It can also be VESA wall-mounted to fit in any limited space.


ASUS-Exclusive GamePlus Technology

ASUS VG279Q features the GamePlus hotkey to give you in-game enhancements that help you get more out of your game. This function is co-developed with pro-gamer input, allowing them to practice and improve their gaming skills.


ASUS-Exclusive GameVisual Technology

ASUS GameVisual Technology has seven pre-set display modes to optimise visuals for different types of content. This unique feature can be easily accessed through a hotkey or the On-Screen Display (OSD) settings menu.


Flicker-Free Technology

Flicker-Free technology reduces flicker to give you a comfortable gaming experience. This minimises instances of eyestrain and other potentially damaging eye ailments when you're embroiled in long, drawn-out gaming sessions.


Ultra-Low Blue Light Technology

ASUS Ultra-Low Blue Light technology reduces the amount of blue light. You can access and select four different filter settings onscreen through the OSD menu or DisplayWidget UI. The VG279Q gaming monitor has undergone stringent performance tests and is certified by TÜV Rheinland laboratories, a global provider of technical, safety, and certification services, to be flicker-free and to emit low blue light levels.

There’s a lot more to High Definition than just having the ability to run your screen at the right resolution. With more than one type of connection available, and the thorny subject of signal encryption to contend with, just because your monitor and graphics are capable of 1,920 x 1,080 or better does not necessarily mean they will be able to display HDTV in all its glory.
