ASUS will bring ROG Strix XG259QNS monitor

At last year’s Computex 2023, ASUS unveiled the ROG Strix XG259QN monitor, featuring a 24.5-inch Fast IPS panel with a 1080P resolution, a refresh rate of 380Hz, a grayscale response time of 1ms that can be reduced to a mere 0.3ms, a contrast ratio of 1000:1, and support for AMD FreeSync Premium technology. This model also received VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification.

According to DisplaySpecifications, ASUS is poised to update its lineup with the ROG Strix XG259QNS monitor, which closely mirrors its predecessor but might forgo one particularly gamer-centric feature: the NVIDIA G-Sync Compatible certification.

Moreover, the Asus ROG Strix XG259QNS monitor introduces several key differences, including artificial intelligence (AI) gaming features known as “ROG Gaming AI technology,” which offers dynamic shadow enhancement, a dynamic crosshair, color temperature selection (with four modes), and GameFast Input functionality. The impact of integrating artificial intelligence enhancements remains to be seen, and whether these improvements justify themselves awaits the verdict of forthcoming product testing.

It has been suggested that the absence of NVIDIA G-Sync Compatible certification in the ROG Strix XG259QNS monitor is not related to the introduction of AI features, but rather that obtaining such certification from NVIDIA might require additional time. As the ROG Strix XG259QNS monitor has not yet hit the market, the final product’s specifications could vary.

The ROG Strix XG259QNS monitor comes equipped with an adjustable stand, featuring a DP 1.4 port, two HDMI 2.0 ports, an audio jack, and USB 3.2 Type-A hub functionality. The release date and pricing of the new product remain uncertain, though they are expected to be in line with the previous model.
