Speed, speed, and more speed

  • Lightning-fast 1ms response time with ASUS Extreme Low Motion Blur
    ASUS VG278Q is the fastest in its class, boasting a 1ms response time to eliminate smearing and motion blur. This lets you react instantly to what you see onscreen, especially in fast paced games – allowing you to take corners like a pro race car driver, or get that headshot like a seasoned pro.
    There's also the ASUS Extreme Low Motion Blur (ELMB) Technology to make objects in motion look even sharper, so gameplay is more fluid and responsive.
  • Certified NVIDIA G-Sync Compatible
    VG278Q has been certified as G-SYNC Compatible, delivering a seamless, tear-free gaming experience by enabling VRR by default on NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-Series and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20-Series graphics cards.
  • Incredible 144Hz refresh rate
    With an astonishing 144Hz refresh rate, fast-moving visuals pose no problem for VG278Q. There's no frustrating lag, so you get the upper hand in first person shooters, racers, real-time strategy and sports titles.
  • Adaptive-Sync technology for smooth gameplay
    VG278Q features Adaptive-Sync (FreeSync™) technology – it eliminates screen tearing and choppy frame rates to give you seamless visuals and smooth gameplay.
  • GameFast Input Technology – because milliseconds count
    Input lag on an LCD monitor is typically much lower than a TV, and ASUS VG278Q features GameFast Input Technology to further minimize input lag. This technology provides much faster motion delivery so you'll always be up to speed with in-game action at the precise timing you need to respond as quickly as is needed.
    • HDTV
      Your command delay appears on the screen and you miss the target.

    The VG278Q gaming monitor has undergone stringent performance tests and is certified by TÜV Rheinland laboratories, a global provider of technical, safety, and certification services, to be flicker-free and to emit low blue light levels.
  • Ergonomically designed and wall-mountable
