ASUS ROG Strix XG279Q Vs ROG Swift PG279Q

Gaming today is a work of revolution, where you can’t believe upon your eyes. This is primarily because of the impressive screens which are built in a way that appears alluring and realistic. The realistic feature of the visuals is one factor which most of the people consider while making the choice of a perfect monitor.

The tech giants understand this need of fine quality monitors which support maximum compatibility. Hence, the leading name in the tech society comes up with its two slightly different off springs.

PG279 from Asus has been remained in game from a very long period of time because of the genuine features it had. Now the other sibling is also coming at the standard which was once assigned to its rival.

Who will sit on the throne finally? This question is somehow perfect for this moment because now we are going to provide you the features present within both of the monitors, so that you can decide the champion all by your own.

DESIGN & CONNECTIVITY

The size of both of the monitors is the same and similar is the case with the resolution. However, the difference arises in terms of the refresh rate, where one notices Strix XG279Q having the maximum refresh rate of about 170 Hz with an adaptive Sync feature. The rival Swift PG279Q comes with a refresh rate of 165 Hz with advanced G-Sync technology which is its specific property.

Strix is very much thicker when compared to Swift which is known for its smart size. Apart from that both of the monitors have the USB and HDMI ports respectively in accordance with the display port. The only difference exists in the version of HDMI incorporated in both, Strix uses version 2.0 which is an upgrade compared to Swift’s 1.4 version.

FEATURES

Strix is also acknowledged among gamers because of its advanced features. It comes with a customized RGB illumination technology where you can check and customize the control of the screen tones according to your personal choice. The specificity does not end here but Strix has HDR 10 by default which ensures the maximum possible picture quality.

One down side of Strix is the lack of the availability of Picture editing which has become an essential component of all the gaming screens in today’s world. This very basic function makes it lag behind its rival which comes with a photo editor so that you can make some really amazing memories.

PRICE COMPARISON

There is a little bit of difference in between the prices of both of the monitors. Because of the great resolution with maximum gaming features, Swift is available at an elevated range starting from $800. On the contrary, its sibling comes at a comparatively less and affordable price of $600. This price with number of features which are of distinguishing and remarkable nature, your deal even gets better.

The thickness of the monitor as well as the adaptive sync feature, all cooperate with each other in order to make it the finest choice.
