ASUS Intros ROG Strix XG32VC Curved Gaming Monitor

ASUS today introduced the ROG Strix XG32VC gaming monitor. This 31.5-inch curved gaming monitor features an 1800R curvature, and offers WQHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) native resolution, using a VA panel. Adding to its gaming chops are 1 ms (MPRT) response time, 170 Hz refresh rate, DisplayHDR 400 compliance, ELMB Sync, and support for both AMD FreeSync Premium Pro and NVIDIA G-SYNC (compatible). The panel offers 10 bpc color (1.07 billion colors), 178°/178° viewing angles, 400 cd/m² maximum brightness, and 3000:1 static contrast ratio. Display inputs include DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 2.0, and USB-C.

Besides these, the ASUS ROG Strix XG32VC offers GamePlus, a collection of features that include an OSD crosshair, timers, FPS counter, and manual multi-display alignment; and GameVisual, a collection of display settings presets optimized for the various game genres. You also get TUV Rhineland-certified low blue-light output and flicker-free brightness adjustments. A unique feature with the XG32VC is an integrated KVM, which lets you share the display and input devices between two physically separate PCs. Just plug your input devices to the monitor's downstream USB ports, the upstream USB and display inputs to the two different PCs, the KVM handles the rest. The company didn't reveal pricing.

If it will cost starting from 299 then it is a garbage.

3000:1 static contrast ratio
I wish more company include the static contrast ratio in their PR material instead of just quoting a maximum dynamic contrast.

Actually majority of press releases do include static contrast ratio.

IMO a curve is just stupid on a 32" 16:9. And every VA TV or monitor I have used looks like garbage when panning around. Hell this is from that HP Omen 32 inch 1440p everyone seems to love.

blah. Gsync compatible was the fail here... too many freesync monitors dont work right with Gsync, no matter the brand or price.

I've got a HP omen 32" and a phillips 32", and the phillips craps all over the HP despite similar specs (ones 144hz ones not, but both at 60 the HP loses badly)

Curve has ups and downs, but it definitely lets a monitor take up a smaller footprint in the same size. It does mess with text on the very edges of the screen, so i'm genuinely torn as to whether its good or bad.... both good, i guess?

How about launching those UHD HDMI 2.1 monitors you teased a couple of months back instead, Asus?

Still waiting on the 32" 4k 144hz model Asus. I was hoping this was it but if it turns out that 4k is too much money, this might be my new screen.
