Asus ROG just announced its brand new monitor – the Strix XG49VQ. The monitor has a super wide 49″ curved display and a resolution of 3840×1080 (32:9 aspect ratio). The display features a refresh rate of up to 144Hz.

Full Details:

The Asus ROG Strix XG49VQ has a screen with DisplayHDR 400 certification and has support for Radeon Freesync 2 HDR. ROG tests each monitor before shipping to ensure it passes DisplayHDR 400 Vesa certification. It covers about 90% of D3 color gamut. This is a high-end monitor, with a super hefty price tag (starts from £999 in the UK next month). The size of the monitor should be approximately equal to two 27”monitors kept side by side, with bezels removed.

I/O on this includes HDMI 2.0, Display Port 1.2, three USB 3.0 ports and a headphone jack. The stand is adjustable with swivel up to  +/- 16°, and height adjustable up to 120mm for a better viewing experience.

It uses Asus’ Shadow Boost Technology to improve image quality in dark areas without overexposing. It also uses Asus’ backlight technology, which adds LEDs and light guide film to increase luminosity. The peak luminance of this display sits at 450 cd/m2.

Who is this for?

While Asus says that this display is built for gamers, the real use of such a wide screen will be for content creators. For gamers, there are not a lot of games that have full support for such super wide displays. Most of them get stretched to fill in the aspect ratio. Plus most professional gamers do not prefer ultra-wide displays.
