ASUS MG278Q 27" WQHD FreeSync 144Hz Gaming Monitor


A universe of Gaming at your command

MG278Q IPS Technology 144Hz Gaming Monitor

The MG279Q gaming display is built for victory in the professional gaming arena, and features a WQHD panel with a 144Hz refresh rate and wide viewing angles. Its ergonomic design, together with Flicker-Free and Ultra Low Blue Light technology, ensure you stay comfortable during those marathon gaming sessions.


A 27-inch WQHD display for highly detailed visuals and more onscreen space

The MG278Q represents a new generation of displays, with a WQHD 2560 x 1440 panel with a pixel density of 109 pixels per inch. You get to enjoy greater image detail and up to 77% more onscreen desktop space than standard Full HD (1920 x 1080) displays. These little details add up to help you better immerse yourself in the game.


Lightning-fast 1ms rapid response time

With a 1ms response time, ASUS MG278Q is the fastest in its class and eliminates smearing, and motion blur. This visual performance lets you react instantly to what you see onscreen, especially in fast paced games – allowing you to take corners like a pro race car driver, or get that headshot like a seasoned pro.


Incredible 144Hz refresh rate

With an astonishing 144Hz refresh rate, fast moving visuals pose no problem for the MG278Q, so you can say goodbye to motion blur and gain the upper hand in first person shooters, racers, real-time strategy and sports titles. MG278Q features AMD FreeSync™ technology – it eliminates screen tearing and choppy frame rates to give you seamless visuals and smooth gameplay.


ASUS-exclusive GamePlus technology

The MG279Q features the ASUS GamePlus hotkey with crosshair overlay and timer functions. Select from four different crosshairs to suit your gaming environment, and keep track of spawn and build times with the on-screen timer that can be positioned anywhere along the left edge of the display.

This function is co-developed with input from pro gamers, allowing them to practice and improve their gaming skills.

  • Crosshairs - A crosshair overlay provides four different crosshair options, so you can select the one that best suits the shooter you're currently playing.
  • Timer - Onscreen timer that can be positioned on the left of the display to keep track of elapsed game time.
  • FPS Counter - The FPS counter lets you know how smoothly the game is running. *This can be activated while FreeSync™ is on.

ASUS-exclusive GameVisual technology

ASUS GameVisual Technology gives you six pre-set display modes tailored to suit different types of scenarios. This unique feature can be easily accessed through a hotkey or the On Screen Display (OSD) settings menu.
  • FPS - High contrast settings enhance the visibility even in dark scenes to clearly see your enemies.
  • RTS/RPG - Enhances color saturation and contrast sharpness to give you better, brighter colors and detailed visuals for real-time strategy (RTS) or RPG games.
  • Racing - Reduces input lag, making it ideal for racing games when FreeSync™ is on.
  • Cinema - Enhances contrast and color saturation for lively, vivid visuals — ideal for viewing movies.
  • Scenery - Provides a greater brightness range and introduces more contrast gradations.
    It tweaks color saturation for greens and blues, making it ideal for viewing photos and
    videos that depict scenery.
  • sRGB - Ideal settings for viewing photos and graphics online.

Advanced connectivity and smart cable management

The ASUS MG278Q has a wide selection of connectivity for WQHD output; including dual-link DVI, DisplayPort 1.2, and two HDMI ports for the high-speed gaming connectivity you expect and two USB 3.0 ports for quick battery charging for your mobile devices while gaming or even an alternative fast signal transmission for your gaming display.

A cable management design feature found on the back of the monitor helps you organise and hide cables to keep your gaming area tidy.


ASUS Ultra Low Blue Light

The MG278Q also comes with the ASUS Ultra Low Blue Light filters to protect you from harmful blue light. You can easily access and select four different filter settings onscreen through the OSD menu to fulfill your different scenarios.


Flicker-free technology

Flicker-Free technology reduces flicker to give you a comfortable gaming experience. This minimises instances of eyestrain and other damaging effects when you're embroiled in long, drawn-out gaming sessions.

Ergonomic design

The MG278Q Gaming Monitor is specially designed for long marathon gaming sessions. Its slim profile and super-narrow bezel makes it perfect for almost seamless multi-display setups. The MG278Q also has an ergonomically-designed stand with tilt, swivel, pivot and height adjustment so you can always find that ideal viewing position. A quick-release design lets you separate the monitor from its stand so it can be VESA wall-mounted.

NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible

Nvidia G-Sync technology has been around for five years. During that time, there has been some great gaming monitors launch at higher prices compared to FreeSync. This is due to the cost of the G-Sync hardware module. Nvidia has announced that it will bring G-Sync support to FreeSync monitors with a new certification program.

At CES, Nvidia announced that it has tested every single adaptive-sync (FreeSync) monitor available and certified specific ones for G-Sync support at a driver level. So far, 400 monitors have been tested and 12 specific models have passed. The MG278Q is one of the 12. If you own an Nvidia graphics card, then a driver update on the 15th of January will allow you to switch on G-Sync with the MG278Q.
