The Gamers Strix XG49VQ 49″ 32:9 Ultra-Wide Curved 144 Hz FreeSync LCD Gaming Monitor from ASUS is essentially two 27″ 1080p Full HD displays stitched together.

Connect it to your system via HDMI or DisplayPort and adjust its versatile stand to best fit your viewing preference. Users can also install an optional VESA-compatible mount, stand, or arm if needed.
AMD Radeon FreeSync 2
Just like its previous iteration, AMD Radeon FreeSync 2 technology syncs the display’s refresh rate with your graphics card’s frame rate output to reduce screen tearing, stuttering, and ghosting for a more fluid viewing experience. The second version offers several additional improvements, including support for HDR content.
144 Hz Refresh Rate
A fast 144 Hz refresh rate can offer a smoother experience when playing fast-paced games such as FPS, RTS, and racing games.
This monitor is DisplayHDR 400 certified, reaching a maximum brightness level of 450 cd/m². It also has 90% coverage of the DCI-P3 cover gamut for vivid colors.
With such a large display, there’s plenty of room for multitasking. It supports up to three content sources at the same time, so you can play console games while watching streams on your computer, and more. Additionally, convenient hotkeys let you quickly switch through different layout options.
