AMD Radeon FreeSync 2
AMD's FreeSync 2 improves upon its predecessor FreeSync. Aside from syncing the display's refresh rate with your graphics card's frame rate output, it also includes gaming-specific HDR (High Dynamic Range) support to reduce input lag with HDR monitors. Furthermore, it has stricter requirements and uses Low Frame Compensation (LFC) technology for smoother, latency-, stutter-, and tear-free gaming at a higher dynamic range.
Fast 144 Hz Refresh Rate
A fast 144 Hz refresh rate provides users with a more fluid experience whether they're playing games or even navigating through menus.
The VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification is an industry standard that ensures this display can reach 400 cd/m² level of brightness with specific color gamut, bit depth, and rise time values for improved color accuracy and contrast.
Shadow Boost Technology
Shadow Boost technology enhances dark scenes for better visibility without overexposing brighter areas, so you can easily spot enemies that may be hiding in the dark.
ASUS Aura Sync Lighting
The back of this display has customizable built-in lighting. Using the ASUS Aura Sync software, users can select a variety of colors and lighting effects to fit their style. You can also sync other compatible components and peripherals for a unified theme.
Customizable Light Signature
The base of the stand emits the ASUS ROG logo onto your desk. Two ROG logo covers and a blank one are included, so you can customize it as needed.
Multiple HDR Modes
Whether you're watching movies or playing games, you can choose from DisplayHDR, ASUS HDR, and FreeSync HDR modes to best fit your current content.
GamePlus technology includes a handful of on-screen widgets to help you with your game including a crosshair, timer, FPS counter, and a display alignment tool.
Instead of built-in buttons, you can change display settings, select viewing modes, and toggle options on and off with the DisplayWidget software.
Ultra-Low Blue Light & Flicker-Free Technology
Ultra-Low Blue Light and Flick-Free technologies help to reduce eyestrain and fatigue over extended viewing periods. Users can select from four different blue light filtering settings as needed.
