MG28UQ and MG24UQ are 28- inch and 24-inch displays respectively, both featuring a 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution.
All MG Series monitors include Adaptive-Sync technology for smooth gaming visuals, while the new ASUS-exclusive DisplayWidget utility gives users easy access to various display settings.
MG248Q: Incredible 144 Hz refresh rate with lightning-fast 1 ms response time
Designed for intense, fast-paced games, ASUS MG248Q is a 24-inch Full HD gaming monitor with an ultra-fast 1 ms response time that lets users react instantly to what they see onscreen. The incredible 144 Hz refresh rate eliminates frustrating lag or motion blur, while Adaptive-Sync technology helps eliminate screen tearing and choppy frame rates to give users seamless visuals and smooth gameplay.
MG248Q is compatible with the NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 kit to open up a world of 3D gaming. It has extensive connectivity options, including dual-link DVI-D, DisplayPort 1.2, and an HDMI (v1.4) port, so users can hook it up to a wide array of multimedia devices.
MG28UQ & MG24UQ: 4K UHD monitors for highly-detailed cinema-quality visuals
Designed for graphics-intensive gaming, these monitors are the first in the MG Series to feature 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) panels for highly-detailed visuals. The 28-inch MG28UQ has a pixel density of 157ppi, while the 24-inch MG24UQ boasts 186ppi for incredibly photo-realistic visuals and sharp, crisp text. Both monitors have Adaptive-Sync technology for seamlessly-smooth gameplay that gives gamers the upper hand in the latest gaming titles.
These new MG Series monitors are designed to fulfill the visual needs of all types of gamers. MG28UQ features a 1 ms response time so it is ideal for fast-paced games such as first-person-shooters; while MG24UQ uses an IPS panel for wide 178° viewing angles for lifelike gaming visuals with minimal distortion and color shift.
MG28UQ and MG24UQ allow users to enjoy smooth 4K UHD content playback, thanks to a 60 Hz refresh rate and native 4K UHD support via DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI (v 2.0). In addition to its array of connectivity options, MG28UQ also features two USB 3.0 ports that can quick-charge mobile devices while the user is gaming.
New ASUS-exclusive DisplayWidget for quick access to display settings
The exclusive ASUS DisplayWidget is an intuitive software utility that lets users tweak display settings or configure the ASUS GameVisual, App Sync, and Ultra-Low Blue Light technologies. While these adjustments can be done via the On Screen Display (OSD) settings menu or navigational joystick and buttons, ASUS DisplayWidget makes accessing and using these various settings much faster and easier.
ASUS-exclusive GameVisual technology provides up to six preset display modes (Scenery, Racing, Cinema, RTS/RPG, FPS, and sRGB) to suit different game genres. This unique feature can be easily accessed through a hotkey or the OSD settings menu. Each mode can be user-customized, with an additional User mode available for saving these settings. In addition, all customized GameVisual settings can be saved in an AXML file format that can be applied to any identical monitor, for example by another user.
App Sync lets users assign specific ASUS GameVisual modes to individual applications, and makes sure the monitor is in the right mode when these programs are displayed in the foreground. Users also have the option of changing these assigned settings.
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 to suit the task at hand. In addition, DisplayWidget provides picture orientation shortcuts, making it easy for users working on long documents to rotate onscreen images to portrait mode.
Gamer-centric enhancements: ASUS GamePlus technologies
MG248Q, MG28UQ and MG24UQ feature the ASUS-exclusive GamePlus hotkey for in-game enhancements, including a crosshair overlay, onscreen timer, a frames per second (FPS) counter, and a display alignment function.
The crosshair overlay provides four different crosshair options, and there’s also an onscreen timer that users can position on the left of the display to keep track of the elapsed gaming time. The FPS counter lets users know how smoothly the game is running. Activating the display alignment function gives users three alignment lines on all four corners of the monitor to take the guesswork out of multi-display set-ups.
Ergonomically designed and wall-mountable
MG248Q, MG28UQ and MG24UQ are specially designed for marathon gaming sessions. All three monitors have ergonomically-designed stands with full tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustment so gamers can find their preferred comfortable viewing position. MG24UQ and MG28UQ can be easily detached from their stands thanks to a quick-release latch, and all models can be VESA wall-mounted to save on desktop space.
ASUS MG28UQ and MG24UQ are available immediately worldwide. MG248Q will be available later in April 2016.
