Asus unveils a new 24 inch ELMB sync monitor (23.8-inch) named ROG Strix XG249CM for gamers. Asus 24 inch monitor has an IPS panel with full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) sets and up to 270 Hz refresh rate promises.
The contrast ratio is 1000: 1, the color depth is 8 bits, the response time is 1 ms (gray to gray), and the typical brightness is 350 cd/m². So you shouldn’t expect any miracles from the also advertised HDR10 support. Other features of the ELMB sync monitor are 105% sRGB, a Delta-E value of less than 2 as well as support for FreeSync Premium and G-Sync-compatible Adaptive Sync.
Since the Asus XG249CM monitor is an ELMB sync model, anti-tearing measures can be combined with a mode against moving image blurring. If necessary, a black stabilizer can be switched on via the OSD, which brightens up dark areas in games. GamePlus overlays such as fps display and crosshairs are also available.
The range of interfaces includes DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 2.0, a USB 3.1 hub, a headphone output, and USB-C with DisplayPort alternate mode and 15-watt power delivery. KVM switch functionality allows two end devices to be operated with the same mouse and keyboard without the hassle of changing connections.
The stand support rotation, inclination, height adjustment, pivot, and VESA mounting (100 x 100 mm). There is also support for a blue light filter, and flicker-free background lighting. The Asus gaming monitor weighs 3.2 kg without the stand, measures 540 x 325 x 57 mm (W x H x D), and consumes around 22 watts in operation.
