ROG Strix XG49VQ is a super ultra-wide 49-inch gaming monitor with a smooth 144Hz refresh rate that offers the ultimate immersive gaming experience. It features Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR, and High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology with DCI-P3 90% professional color gamut coverage and DisplayHDR™ 400 certification.
The 49-inch ROG Strix XG49VQ gaming monitor with 1800R curvature delivers the ultimate immersive gaming experience and extra flexibility for multitasking. With a 32:9 aspect ratio, the super ultra-wide display provides the same viewing area as two side-by-side 27-inch monitors without a gap and bezel getting in the way of your view.
ROG Strix XG49VQ offers an ultrafast 144Hz refresh rate, ensuring that even the fastest-paced games played at the highest visual settings remain buttery-smooth and completely lag-free.
ROG Strix XG49VQ features FreeSync 2 HDR technology that delivers buttery-smooth visuals with low latency and better brightness and contrast. FreeSync 2 stipulates low-latency processing for both standard and HDR content, eliminating the input lag typically associated with HDR content.
To deliver the best HDR experience, ROG tests every monitor before it ships to ensure it passes DisplayHDR™ 400 certification. To meet this standard, the peak luminance of ROG Strix XG49VQ is 450 cd/m2 which is 50% higher than typical standard dynamic range displays. XG49VQ also delivers DCI-P3 90% color gamut and contrast performance.
With its super-ultra-wide screen, multiple inputs and picture-by-picture support, ROG Strix XG49VQ lets you watch up to three content sources at the same time, so you can enjoy better gaming experiences, such as playing Xbox One or PS4 Pro games, while watching Twitch streams on your PC.
With convenient hot keys, ROG Strix XG49VQ lets you quickly and easily display different video sources side by side, and manually adjusts the layout for the best onscreen fit.
ASUS Shadow Boost technology clarifies dark areas of the game world without overexposing brighter areas, improving overall viewing while also making it easier to spot enemies hidden in dark areas of the map.
Now you can choose from multiple HDR modes in order to adjust monitor HDR performance based on the current scenario.
The ASUS-exclusive, integrated GamePlus hotkey offers in-game enhancements that help you get more out of your game.This function is co-developed with input from pro gamers, allowing them to practice and improve their gaming skills.
Choose from seven preset display modes to optimize visuals for different types of games.
Lets you assign specific ASUS GameVisual modes to individual applications and game titles to make sure the program you are using is in your preferred mode. You also have the option of changing these assigned settings quickly .
DisplayWidget also lets users access different blue light filter settings. ASUS Ultra-Low Blue Light technology reduces the amount of blue light emitted by the display and features four different filter settings onscreen to suit the task at hand. These settings can also be easily accessed via the OSD menu.
All customized GameVisual settings can be saved to an AXML file format that can be shared with other same monitor users.

Since you will spend a huge chunk of your day looking at the screen, it is crucial to find a monitor best fits your needs. Without a good display, whatever you do on your PC will seem dull, whether you’re into gaming or any other stuff of your choice. There are tons of features and options to look out for when buying a monitor, so a close look is required beforehand.
Quick buying tips
Choose as per your need. If you are a gamer, you should look for a fast refresh rate and low response time. Professionals should seek color accuracy and for general use, users with less specific needs often opt for a monitor with high contrast VA panel.
Higher resolution for better picture quality. Resolution refers to the monitor's pixel density in length x width format. 1920x1080, also known as 1080p or full HD (FHD), is the baseline for a modern PC build. You’ll experience sharper images on a QHD or 4K monitor.
Required resolution for gaming: More pixels produce better pictures. But if you’re into gaming, those pixels can slow you down unless you have a beefy enough graphics card. Most video interfaces don’t support refresh rates faster than 60 Hz for 4K/UHD or 5K signals. Video interfaces are just beginning to support higher refresh rates at 4K resolution, but you still need a very expensive graphics card play at 4K resolution and push past 60 frames per second (fps).
The current sweet spot seems to be QHD/2K (2560x1440) resolution. With monitors up to 32 inches, you see the good density and a detailed image that isn’t too difficult for mid-priced graphics cards to handle.
If you want ultimate speed, FHD (1920x1080) delivers the highest frame rates (you won't find gaming monitors today with lower resolution). But avoid stretching that resolution past 27 inches, as you may notice a dip in image quality, with pesky individual pixels being visible.
Bigger is better. The refresh rate is described as a number in Hz, where the number is how many times your monitor refreshes per second. In other words, it's the frame rate of the monitor: the higher the number the smoother things will look. If you’re a gamer, the refresh rate is especially important, and you’ll want a monitor with at least 75Hz (most monitors designed for gaming offer at least 144Hz), combined with the lowest response time you can find. If you’re not into gaming, a 60Hz refresh rate should do.
Shorter is better. If you are a gamer, response time is a crucial feature for you. Longer response times can mean motion blur when gaming or watching fast-paced videos. The highest response time you’ll likely see is 5ms, while the fastest gaming monitors can have a 0.5ms response time.
Today’s LCD panels use three major technologies: twisted nematic (TN panel), vertical alignment (VA panel) and in-plane switching (IPS panel). Each has several variations with different advantages. TN monitors are the fastest but cheapest due to poorer viewing angles. IPS monitors have slightly faster response times and show color better than VA panels, but VA monitors have the best contrast out of all three-panel types.
G-Sync or FreeSync
Gaming monitors usually have Nvidia G-Sync (for PCs with Nvidia graphics cards) and /or AMD FreeSync (for the right running AMD graphics). Both reduce tearing and stuttering, although G-Sync monitors usually cost more than FreeSync ones.
G-Sync monitors operate from a 30 Hz refresh rate up to the monitor’s maximum. FreeSync displays are not as consistent. FreeSync monitors usually support adaptive refresh up to a monitor’s maximum refresh rate. But it’s the lower limit you must consider.
Regardless, if your budget only has room for a low-to-mid speed graphics card, you’ll want a monitor with either G-Sync or FreeSync with a low minimum refresh rate.
