The monitor offers a contrast ratio of 1000:1, a peak brightness of 400 cd/m², and an 8-bit color depth. Alongside, it boasts 125 percent sRGB and 90 percent DCI-P3. Equipped with two 2-watt internal speakers as sound sources, it also incorporates features like a black stabilizer, along with GamePlus functionalities such as fps display and crosshair overlays.

ELMB Sync, an inclusion in this model, allows for the combination of FreeSync Premium with a mode to tackle motion blur. Additionally, Asus confirmed that the TUF Gaming VG279QL3A supports ELMB Sync.

As for connectivity, it relies on two HDMI 2.0 interfaces, a DisplayPort 1.4, and a headphone output, omitting USB ports. Notably, Full HD at 180 Hz is attainable across all graphic signal inputs.
