Not to be confused with their similarly named XG270 (27″ IPS, 1080p with 240Hz and adaptive-sync) and XG270QG models (27″ IPS, 1440p with 165Hz and Native G-sync), ViewSonic have just announced their new Elite XG270QC display at CES 2020. This model has a curved 1500R format unlike the other models and features a 2560 x 1440 resolution VA technology panel and 165Hz refresh rate. The screen is AMD FreeSync 2 certified which means that it will support adaptive-sync for variable refresh rates from NVIDIA systems as well.
There’s not much more official information available at the moment but we do know that it will offer a 550 cd/m2 brightness and a wide colour gamut with >90% DCI-P3 coverage. A 10-bit colour depth will also be supported and the lowly VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification is also listed. Expect there to be a 3000:1 contrast ratio as well thanks to the VA panel. There is a 3ms G2G and 1ms MPRT spec provided, which also implies that it will include a motion blur reduction option.
ELITE RGB Alliance
With the ELITE XG27 series of gaming monitors, ELITE RGB can be synced with Razer and Thermaltake. Razer Chroma and Thermaltake TT RGB Plus link up with ELITE RGB via the monitors’ display controller software, allowing users to control both accent and ambient RGB lighting. With Razer Chroma, users gain access to the Chroma Workshop which features a collection of RGB profiles integrated by game developers from more than 135 popular titles. Utilizing both Razer Chroma and Thermaltake advanced RGB software allows gamers to control their RGB environment, allowing for the ultimate immersive gaming experience.
The ELITE Ally peripheral is a USB-connected touch-screen device that allows gamers to quickly access on-screen display settings, such as game modes, adaptive sync, HDR, brightness, contrast, RGB lighting and more. Users can fine-tune their gaming experience without touching the monitor or opening their ELITE display controller software. The ELITE Ally peripheral is currently only compatible with select ViewSonic ELITE gaming monitors.
