Announced at this year’s Gamescom event was the new Asus TUF Gaming VG35VQ. This is a 35″ ultrawide model with a 3440 x 1440 resolution VA panel. It has a 100Hz refresh rate and support for adaptive-sync so you can use it on both NVIDIA G-sync and AMD FreeSync systems. Also included is support for Asus’ ELMB” (Extreme Low Motion Blur) technology which offers a strobing blur reduction backlight.
Updated news piece 24/9/19 – Contrary to the information we had at the time this news article was published, this does not appear to be the latest “ELMB-sync” technology and so cannot be used at the same time as variable refresh rates. We do have final specs and further information though in this updated news piece.
Asus have announced their new TUF Gaming VG32VQ display, a 32″ curved model with a 2560 x 1440 VA technology panel and 144Hz refresh rate. The most exciting thing about this new model is that it is the first monitor announced to officially support variable refresh rates (VRR) through Adaptive-Sync at the same time as its strobing blur reduction backlight. Previously blur reduction backlights operated at afixed frequency, and so could not be used at the same time as G-sync or FreeSync. It was very much a choice between the two, with some people needing the VRR support for different and changing frame rates, and some people instead preferring the motion clarity and blur reduction benefits of the strobing backlight option.
