Asus goes for portability with new rog strix xg17 monitor

In terms of desktop games, portability is not a frequently used term, but Asus seems willing to reverse this trend by launching ASUS ROG Strix XG17 at Computex 2019. Obviously the first portable gaming monitor, Strix. XG17 is aimed at gamers with an ultra-high refresh rate of up to 240Hz, a response time of 3ms and a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080. The

IPS panel with a viewing angle of up to 178 degrees provides a certain degree of flexibility in positioning, making it ideal for different configurations of hotel rooms or LAN activities. In these cases, the distance between the user and the display cannot always be guaranteed. The

connection is ensured by a pair of USB TypeC ports and two microHDMI 2.0 ports, allowing connection to complete gaming equipment, consoles, laptops and even smartphones. If you forget your headphones at home, don’t worry, because the monitor has two built-in 1W speakers. In terms of size, the

display has a width of ½ inch and weighs only 800 grams, making it very suitable for carrying. It also supports AdaptiveSync technology, but did not specify whether this refers to NVIDIA or AMD's display synchronization brand.

ROG Strix XG17 Considering convenience and realizing the fact that the processing power of portable displays far exceeds that of desktop computers, ROG Strix XG17 is equipped with a matte panel to avoid annoying finger marks. The all-metal chassis helps to withstand traffic tests, while the back brush ensures that it will not be scratched during transportation. The display is also equipped with a dual-purpose cover that fills the protective case of the front panel when moving, and acts as a stand for classic and inclined positions when in use. In addition, the monitor will send a DisplayWidget utility for fine-tuning and game-specific settings through the GameVisual function. The built-in battery for off-grid use allows up to 3 hours of 240Hz use, and a lower refresh rate is expected to extend battery life. ASUS

has been tight-lipped about pricing, but the 240Hz refresh rate may be higher than expected, although the manufacturer is known for its competitive prices, so we can have a very affordable display. There is also no definitive release window, but rumors about Computex gossip indicate that summer 2019 is a good choice.
