ASUS touts ultra-fast gaming monitor

Claims world-first refresh rate that can even give you a "competitive edge".

By Jason Stamper

ASUS announced a 24-inch Fast Gaming Monitor, claiming it is the world’s first 144Hz rapid refresh-rate display with 1ms (GTG) response time for Full HD gaming at very high frame rates.

The firm said reduced motion blur and input lag times deliver smoother visuals, giving gamers a competitive edge in first-person shooter, racing and real-time strategy games.

The VG248QE also immerses gamers in a stereoscopic 3D world, thanks to NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 (sold separately) support. In addition, ASUS innovations like an 80,000,000:1 Smart Contrast Ratio, 350cd/m² brightness and Splendid Video Intelligence Technology ensure a sharp, vivid image, the firm claimed.

The ASUS VG248QE has native support for frame rates up to 144 frames-per-second (FPS) for smooth gameplay. By controlling voltage levels that drive the liquid crystal display, the VG248QE delivers a 1ms (GTG) response time to eliminate tracers and ensure fluid video playback. Shorter input lags mean frames are rendered onscreen more rapidly, and a lower latency gives gamers a chance to improve their in-game response times.

Motion blur from conventional 60Hz displays often detract from the immersive experience of faster-paced games and the VG248QE reduces motion blur to deliver a noticeable visual improvement, ASUS said.

ASUS VG248QE is available now from authorised ASUS resellers in Taiwan and the Asia Pacific, Europe and North America.
