NVIDIA has already surprised the world when it announced that select FreeSync displays will be fully-compatible with their G-SYNC technology. Few monitors, however, have passed NVIDIA’s testing.
ASUS, ever hungry to expand their monitor lineup, has just added three FreeSync monitors that are suitable for NVIDIA G-SYNC: the VG248QG, VG258QR, and the VG278QR.
All three monitors come with a fast 165Hz TN panel, 0.5ms (Grey-to-Grey) response time and 1920 x 1080 resolution. One of the significant features that separate these three displays from each other is size. The VG248QG comes with a 24-inch panel, the VG258QR has a 24.5-inch screen, while the VG278QR is the largest of the lot has a 27-inch display.
These displays come with the ASUS Extreme Low Motion Blur (ELMB), which reduces ghosting and blur. Making moving objects sharper and gameplay even more fluid and responsive.
