Introduction

 

ASUS reached out to me and asked if I would like to review their new ROG Strix XG49VQ, like it was ever something I'd deny reviewing. It's a great panel that comes in a gigantic 49-inch display with support for AMD FreeSync 2 HDR and 32:9 aspect ratio with native 3840 x 1080 resolution.

My time with the ROG Strix XG49VQ was mostly tied to gaming with limited workstation and everyday use, and I had an absolute blast with it when it came to gaming. RAGE 2 had come out in the last couple of days with my time on the monitor, so some 32:9 mayhem ensued and it was awesome. The same can be said with virtually every game I played on the ROG Strix XG49VQ including The Division 2 and even Mortal Kombat 11 looks boss on a 32:9 display.

 

ASUS prices the ROG Strix XG49VQ at $899 in the US, which isn't too bad considering you're getting a gigantic 49-inch 32:9 monitor at 144Hz. But let's dive right the hell in, shall we?

 

 

Note: at the end of the review is a bonus page with a huge selection of games running at native 3840x1080 in 32:9 aspect ratio so you can kinda see how immersive the experience is on this monitor.
