Originally showcased in May 2023 at the Computex event was the new Asus ROG Strix XG259QN monitor. We now have some final specs and details as the product page has appeared online. This is a 24.5″ sized display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution ‘Fast IPS’ panel. It offers a native 360Hz refresh rate which can be overclocked a bit up to 380Hz. It’s supported by adaptive-sync for VRR from compatible NVIDIA and AMD systems and includes the AMD ‘FreeSync Premium’ certification.
Fast IPS panel and ELMB-sync support
Asus advertise a 0.3ms minimum response time which they say is thanks to their new “ASUS Fast IPS Display [which] allows the display’s liquid crystal elements to switch up to 10X faster than conventional IPS panels for improved response.” The screen is also equipped with Asus’ “ELMB-sync” technology, a strobing blur reduction backlight mode that can be used at the same time as VRR.
With aspect ratio control options, you can switch to the desired window sizes as 4:3 aspect ratio or 4:3 full setting with either 1280×960 or 1024×768 with full refresh rate. With this focused “tunnel vision” or “stretched image” it can help you concentrate on the important spots in the game. A range of familiar Asus preset modes and added gaming features are included as normal.
Specifications and Connectivity
In other specs the screen has a 1920 x 1080 resolution, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 400 cd/m2 brightness, 178/178 viewing angles, 16.7m 8-bit colour depth and a somewhat extended colour gamut with ~110% sRGB coverage. The screen also comes factory calibrated with a dE <2.
For connectivity there are 1x DisplayPort 1.4 and 2x HDMI 2.0 connections provided along with 2x USB data ports and a headphone jack. The stand offers a full range of tilt, height, swivel and rotate adjustments.
