Asus VG279QL1А from the TUF Gaming series goes officialAsus has expanded its TUF Gaming series of gaming monitors with the Asus TUF Gaming VG279QL1А. It sounds a lot like the Asus TUF Gaming VG279Q1А but with an "L" in the name. However, the new model offers more.

For starters, it most likely uses a different panel as the Asus VG279QL1А has a DisplayHDR 400 certification and a brightness of 400 nits, while the former model's brightness is 250 nits. The new one also covers 125% of the sRGB and 95% of the DCI-P3 color spaces.

Secondly, the Asus TUF Gaming VG279QL1А offers more ergonomic options adding up to 120 mm height adjustment and 90° pivot in either direction. The -/+15° swivel and 5°/23° tilt remain the same.

Finally, the connectivity options are also improved and enriched. The Asus VG279QL1А has two HDMI 2.0 inputs, DisplayPort 1.2, a headphone jack, and two USB 3.0 ports.

All the rest seems to be the same. The Asus TUF Gaming VG279QL1А features a 27-inch IPS 1080p display with 1 ms MPRT and up to 165Hz refresh rate thanks to AMD FreeSync Premium support. It arrives with all Asus TUF Gaming features including Extreme Low Motion Blur (ELMB), GameFast, GamePlus, GaneVisual, Color Temperature Selection, Shadow Boost, SPLENDID Video Preset Modes, Trace Free Technology, etc. Flicker-free and low blue light techs are on board. The monitor packs a duo of 2W stereo speakers as well.
