ASUS Nails the OSD on the ROG Swift PG279Q
The OSD and control system on the original ASUS ROG PG278Q was great, and I'm happy to say that ASUS has continued with the same OSD and joystick/buttons on the new PG279Q.
As soon as you press the Menu button, or press the joystick 'in', you'll be greeted with the main menu. As you can see, the main menu tells you what you need to know up the top: G-Sync is enabled, that DisplayPort is being used, and we have a native resolution of 2560x1440@165Hz. Ohhh yeah.
In the first menu, you can access the overclocking on the PG279Q - allowing you to override the panel's maximum refresh rate of 144Hz right up to 165Hz.
The next menu is 'GameVisual', which allows you to change the color modes through various modes like 'scenery', 'racing', and 'FPS' modes.
Here you can change the blue light filter.
