Incredibly Fast 280 Hz Refresh Rate

Astonishing overclockable 280Hz refresh rate means the display is almost twice as fast as conventional 144 Hz monitors. You'll experience amazingly-fluid gaming visuals, giving you the upper hand in first-person shooters, racing, real-time strategy and sports titles.

ASUS Fast IPS Display w/ 1ms (GTG) Response Time

ASUS Fast IPS Display allows the display's liquid crystal elements to switch up to 4X faster than conventional IPS panels for improved response. With a 1 ms gray-to-gray response time, smearing and motion blur are virtually eliminated. This display also delivers superior images with outstanding colors thanks to DCI-P3 95% color gamut and an astounding 1,000:1 contrast ratio. Wide 178-degree viewing angles ensure minimal distortion and color shift even when you're viewing from extreme positions.

Certified NVIDIA G−SYNC Compatible

With variable-refresh-rate (VRR) technology enabled by default, you're assured seamless, tear-free gaming experiences from your NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10 or NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20-series graphics card.



HDR: High Dynamic Range

HDR technology delivers a wider color range and higher contrast than traditional monitors. The brightest whites and the darkest blacks bring out details like never before. The display is also capable of 400 cd/m2, meeting the stringent requirements for DisplayHDR™ 400 certification.

Multi HDR Mode
Now you can choose from multiple HDR modes to adjust monitor HDR performance based on the current viewing scenario.


With ELMB SYNC, you can enable ELMB (low-motion-blur technology) and G-SYNC™ Adaptive-Sync at the same time, eliminating ghosting and tearing for sharp visuals and high frame rates while gaming.
