Features

  • Lightning-fast 1ms rapid response time: With a 1ms response time, ASUS MG278Q is the fastest in its class and eliminates smearing, and motion blur. This visual performance lets you react instantly to what you see onscreen, especially in fast paced games – allowing you to take corners like a pro race car driver, or get that headshot like a seasoned pro.
  • Certified NVIDIA G-Sync Compatible: Delivering a seamless, tear-free gaming experience by enabling VRR by default on NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-Series and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20-Series graphics cards.
  • Incredible 144Hz refresh rate: With an astonishing 144Hz refresh rate, fast moving visuals pose no problem for the MG278Q, so you can say goodbye to motion blur and gain the upper hand in first person shooters, racers, real-time strategy and sports titles. MG278Q features AMD FreeSyncâ„¢ technology – it eliminates screen tearing and choppy frame rates to give you seamless visuals and smooth gameplay.
  • ASUS-exclusive GamePlus technology: Hotkey to give you in-game enhancements so you get more out of your game. The crosshair overlay with four different crosshair options lets you choose the one that best suits the game you're playing. There's also an onscreen timer you can position on the left of the display so you can keep track of the elapsed gaming time; while the FPS (frames per second) counter lets you know how smooth the game is running.
    This function is co-developed with input from pro gamers, allowing them to practice and improve their gaming skills.
  • ASUS-exclusive GameVisual technology: ASUS GameVisual Technology gives you six pre-set display modes tailored to suit different types of scenarios. This unique feature can be easily accessed through a hotkey or the On Screen Display (OSD) settings menu.
  • Advanced connectivity and smart cable management: Mini DisplayPort 1.2 for native WQHD output, along with two HDMI/MHL ports and dual USB 3.0 ports for convenient pass-through connectivity.
    A cable management design feature found on the back of the monitor allows you to organise and hide your cables to keep your gaming area tidy.
  • ASUS Ultra Low Blue Light: Filters to protect you from harmful blue light. You can easily access and select four different filter settings onscreen through the OSD menu to fulfill your different scenarios.
  • Flicker-free technology: Flicker-Free technology reduces flicker to give you a comfortable gaming experience. This minimises instances of eyestrain and other damaging effects when you're embroiled in long, drawn-out gaming sessions.
  • Ergonomic design: Specially designed for long marathon gaming sessions. Its slim profile and super-narrow bezel makes it perfect for almost seamless multi-display setups. The MG279Q also has an ergonomically-designed stand with tilt, swivel, pivot and height adjustment so you can always find that ideal viewing position. A quick-release design lets you separate the monitor from its stand so it can be VESA wall-mounted.

EG Quick Tips

Monitors are better for competitive gaming than TVs, as they have a much lower response time (you'll be able to see and react to in-game action faster!).
