Asus have announced a new modestly sized ultra-wide screen in their ROG Strix gaming monitor line-up. The XG309CM is 30″ in size (well, 29.5″ to be exact) and offers a 2560 x 1080 resolution and an approximate 21:9 ultra-wide aspect ratio. It’s based on a ‘Fast IPS’ panel and offers a 200Hz refresh rate, supported by adaptive sync for VRR from both NVIDIA and AMD systems. A 1ms G2G response time is quoted, although take this with a pinch of salt. The screen also includes Asus’ ‘ELMB-sync’ technology, allowing for simultaneous use of the strobing blur reduction backlight with VRR.
USB type-C and KVM switch for improved versatility
The screen is not just aimed at gamers, with its versatility also being promoted by Asus heavily. It’s for people who want to game as well as work apparently. To make this possible Asus have included a USB type-C connector, and in addition to that, which can accept the common DisplayPort Alt Mode input available from many laptops, the XG309CM can serve as a KVM switch, controlling multiple connected devices with only one keyboard and mouse.
Camera mount support
A standard tripod socket atop the adjustable stand allows you to mount a tripod head or camera arm in the optimal position to capture a natural view of yourself if you want to share your reactions with the world during Twitch or YouTube streams.
The XG309CM is expected to go on sale in Q1 2022. More info on specs and pricing when we get it.
