The ASUS ROG Strix Xg279Q comes with the following features and functions: 27-inch Fast IPS panel, 2560 x 1440 WQHD Fast IPS gaming monitor with 1ms GtG response time, 170Hz overclockable refresh rate, ASUS ELMB Sync (Extreme Low Motion Blur), both NVIDIA G-Sync and FreeSync that gets rid of screen tearing and stuttering, DisplayHDR 400, 95% DCI-P3 color gamut, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 16.7M colors, Flicker-free, Low Blue Light, Displayport and HDMI ports.
The 170Hz refresh rate can be overclocked only via DisplayPort input, as the HDMI port only goes up to 144Hz.
