The Asus ROG Strix XG27UCG is the World’s First Dual-Mode LCD Monitor

Asus have announced the World’s first “dual-mode” LCD monitor this week. While we’ve already seen a couple of dual-mode OLED monitors announced including the company’s own forthcoming ROG Swift PG32UCDP, this is the first time this technology has appeared on an LCD monitor. Dual-mode means that the screen can support its native 4K @ 160Hz operation, or through the press of a button, you can instead switch to 1080p resolution @ 320Hz if you prefer. This way you can prioritise resolution and image detail, or refresh rate and frame rates depending on your game and requirements.

There is very little information provided by Asus at this time, but we believe the screen to be built around an LG.Display IPS panel. We know of several dual-mode IPS panels they had planned which we discussed in our last panel roadmap update. This particular spec of 4K @ 160Hz wasn’t actually one of the listed options at the time, but we expect this is an extension of the 4K 144Hz option which was listed. Mass production of that panel was planned for Q3 2024 so if so, we’d expect to see this monitor released during Q4.

The screen is 27″ in size and has a 164 PPI pixel density as a result with its native 3840 x 2160 “4K” resolution. A 1ms G2G response time spec is listed as well as normal, but no other specs are provided at this time.

We do know that the screen has a compact stand which will help free up desktop space and also features a groove that can be used to prop up mobile devices. The XG27UCG also offers users a multitude of connectivity options including USB Type-C (with Power Delivery), DisplayPort 1.4, and HDMI 2.1 although further details and capabilities are not listed at this time.

More info when we get it.
