ASUS introduces the ROG STRIX XG259QNS gaming monitor, designed for eSports enthusiasts with impressive specs like a 380 Hz panel. Known for delivering top-notch performance, aesthetics, and user-centric features, the ROG lineup by ASUS continues its legacy with the new XG259QNS. Catering to “hardcore gamers” aiming to optimize in-game performance, this monitor boasts a 24.5-inch “Fast IPS” panel and a 1920 x 1080 resolution, emphasizing its gaming-centric focus. The choice of 1080p is justified by the monitor’s exclusive features tailored for gaming purposes.
The XG259QNS boasts an impressive “380 Hz” refresh rate, ensuring seamless visibility of fast-paced visuals. Complemented by a 0.3 ms response time, this combination maximizes the monitor’s performance. Panel specifications include VESA DisplayHDR 400 support, a 110% sRGB color gamut, and a 1000:1 contrast ratio. While sharing similarities with other gaming monitors, the ROG STRIX XG259QNS distinguishes itself by prioritizing the best experience for its consumers.
The monitor incorporates additional features to elevate the gaming experience, notably including AMD FreeSync Premium technology to minimize screen tearing. ASUS’s proprietary ASUS Extreme Low Motion Blur Sync (ELMB SYNC) is also featured, promising to eliminate ghosting and tearing for crisp gaming visuals at high frame rates.
Regarding connectivity, the ROG STRIX XG259QNS is equipped with 1x DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.0 ports, 2x USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A hub, and an earphone jack. While lacking a PD-capable port, it’s unlikely needed in an optimal gaming setup. The monitor is accompanied by a dedicated stand offering generous height, tilt, and swivel adjustment options.
The pricing and release date for this monitor from ASUS haven’t been revealed yet. However, considering its listing on ASUS’s official website, we anticipate an official announcement in the near future.
