The Chinese retailer Taobab has yet again put out some details that have been seen nowhere else but is definitely most welcome. TFTCentral broke the news by finding a listing for the ASUS TUF Gaming VG279QM, the world’s first 280 Hz gaming monitor.
The monitor in question appears to be a 27-inch IPS monitor running at 1920×1080 with the 280 Hz refresh rate. It has adaptive-sync support for variable refresh rates, so both AMD and NVIDIA cardholders will be safe, and the listing also suggests it will include ASUS’s ELMB technology for blur reduction.
The monitor has 400 cd/m2 brightness, with a 1000:1 contrast ratio and a 178/178 viewing angle. Gamers will also be pleased to note it has a 1ms GtG response time too. As of December 2019, there’s no word yet on pricing or availability in the US, Canada or Europe, but we’re hoping to have more information in time for CES 2020.
