Asus Rog Strix Temperature Monitor

Posted onby admin

Temperature offset to 6500K

We approach color precision in a simple to understand way and to explain the method, this test is simple. We look at how close the screen is to a color temperature of 6500 Kelvin based on the default color space. This test is done at default monitor settings. The screen, however, has many presets you can choose from and some very specific RGB color control preferences. The sky is the limit. In the chart above, the lower the value is, the closer the screen is to 6500 Kelvin.

Available options: Cool, Normal, Warm, and User Mode. The ASUS ROG Strix XG17AHP is a 17.3-inch IPS gaming monitor that supports 240Hz and 3ms response time. This is a monitor made for gamers who play games at high frame rates, which are probably going to be mostly FPS gamers.

We measure power consumption measured in three ways. A white screen, a black screen, and then in standby/power-down mode. We measure at 100% brightness which is the maximum output and thus power consumption, also would be comparable values when you game at HDR.

At 50% brightness (realistic setting) the monitor consumes roughly 44 Watts.

Idle or sleep power consumption has improved over the years for most technology due to US and EU legislation at 0.1 Watts. Should you opt for any RGB or LED projector to remain on, this can draw multiple Watts continuously 24/7, be warned about that.

On inspection, we found no dead or stuck pixels.

Final Words & Verdict

ASUS ROG XG279Q is a truly unique monitor. For $600 (or at least it should be priced like that), you get a versatile WQHD solution for both gaming and color. The design and quality of the materials are fully in line with the class of enthusiast products. At the same time, the monitor has absolutely all the modern technology that may be needed even for the pickiest eSportsman. I will close the material today in a special way, with a list of pros and cons, perhaps it will be useful for those who are not used to reading the material from the beginning to the end.


  • Frameless design and full compatibility with the ROG Bezel Free Kit;
  • ELMB mode - gaming comfort for gamers and a must for eSports;
  • Contrast ratio of 1264 and maximum brightness of 450 cd/m² were higher (and better, of course) than the manufacturer stated;
  • The sRGB color coverage in all modes was 99.9%;
  • Colour coverage of DCI-P3 was 94.8% after calibration (90% declared);
  • Average ΔE*94 of 0.25% and maximum ΔE*94 of 0.87% after calibration corresponds to the professional monitor level;
  • Supports Adaptive-Sync and G-Sync in Compatible mode;
  • 170Hz for WQHD;
  • VESA DisplayHDR 400;
  • Good factory setting on gamma curves (but not gray balance) for default Racing mode;
  • Excellent gradient quality after calibration;
  • Premium design according to the ROG series product concept;
  • Excellent quality of materials and assembly;
  • Joystick - easy to set up the monitor;
  • Height, tilt and portrait mode adjustment;
  • VESA 100 × 100 mm mounting standard;
  • Flicker-free backlighting (Flicker-Free) throughout the brightness range;
  • Excellent viewing angles;
  • Convenient OSD menu for adjustment;
  • 2 differentiated backlighting for the monitor, as well as the ability to control the backlighting with Aura Sync;
  • Moderate Glow-effect;
  • Availability of USB hub version 3.0;
  • It is possible to set up the monitor via OS;

Which you might not like:

  • Pulse-width modulation in ELMB mode;
  • The upper right and left corner of the monitor has problems with brightness uniformity and a slight deviation in color temperature;
  • Useless factory presets, except for the default Racing;
  • Gray gradient uniformity problem, in all modes, the ΔE*94 average varies from 2 to 4.71%. It is not desirable to work professionally with graphics without calibration;
  • Color temperature far from D65 in all modes, average ~7100K. %. Without calibration it is undesirable to work professionally with graphics;
  • When using Matrix Acceleration (OD), artifacts (above Level 2) can be observed;
  • The presence of a slight crystalline effect;
  • A slightly overvalued price;
  • In sRGB emulation mode, you cannot adjust the brightness;

The calibration results impressed me, it's not what I could expect from a gamer monitor. If you don't work with graphics or printing, you may not even think about calibration, the standard Racing profile has quite decent factory calibration results (Hilbert: gaming mode uses the default calibrated settings from factory). As for the drawbacks, for me, it was one thing - uneven back-lighting and a slightly pronounced crystalline effect (maybe I'm just used to monitors with higher ppi values). Maybe, I have come across such a specimen. That's it for this article, we hope you enjoyed this read. Considering this review was performed offsite we'll leave out awards.
