Asus VG278H, the first 144 Hz Monitor
Sure, this monitor looks pretty ordinary, but it not just your average monitor. Asus has just revealed the Asus VG278H. It’s actually the first monitor to break past the 120 Hz mark. Not that they haven’t been trying for years. This determines the refresh rate of the screen. The higher the resolution, the more solid and flicker-free the image. Naturally, gamers will be thrilled with this monitor.
With the unprecedented 144 Hz refresh rate, Asus claims, it will deliver “ultra-smooth 2D visuals” for games. The response time has also been cut to 2ms to “eliminate tracing and ensure crisp and clear video playback.”
This monitor also supports Nvidia 3D Vision 2 glasses technology, which is said to provide “twice sharper 3D images than conventional 3D technology.” The standard is supported in around 500 games. So, yeah this is a sweet gaming monitor. Nothing on pricing or a release date yet though.
