Asus ROG Strix XG27UQ is the first 144hz Gaming Monitor with Display Stream Compression technology enables 4K visuals and a 144Hz refresh rate via a single DisplayPort 1.4 connection by compressing and decompressing each frame on the fly with no visual loss of image quality.
This type of compression allows you to convey a signal at 4K and 144 h through a single DisplayPort 1.4 connection and without resorting to chromatic sub-sampling which negatively affects the display quality.
In the absence of this technology, 4k monitor 144hz can only support the refresh rate of 98hz at 4k with 4: 4: 4 HDR color sampling. There is talk of a required bandwidth of about 43 Gbps, higher than that available with DisplayPort 1.4.
To achieve this level of performance without DSC, game monitor requires two DisplayPort connections to transfer the video signal from the PC. This typically requires complex driver configuration and prevents the display of HDR content and variable update rates during the game. The new ROG 144 hz Monitor eliminates all these problems, supporting both HDR and variable refresh rates via a single DisplayPort 1.4 connection.
ROG Strix XG27UQ is the best 4k gaming monitor able to offer smooth 4K images up to 144 Hz with 1 ms MPRT response time. The display is also compatible with NVIDIA G-SYNC and is DisplayHDR 400 certified, featuring 90% coverage of the DCI-P3 color range. The 144 hz gaming monitor uses an IPS type panel.
