ASUS Releases TUF VG28UQL1A 4k Gaming Monitor

ASUS announces the availability of TUF Gaming VG28UQL1A, a gaming monitor designed for PC and next-generation consoles.

This 28inch display has a Fast IPS panel and supports up to 4K 144 Hz gaming with a 1 ms gray-to-gray (GTG) response time, as well as Display Stream Compression (DSC) technology. It also offers native 4K 120 Hz gaming without chroma subsampling on the latest consoles via HDMI ® 2.1. The monitor is compatible with NVIDIA ® G-SYNC ®. It also supports AMD FreeSync ™ Premium and ASUS Extreme Low Motion Blur Sync (ELMB Sync) to eliminate smearing and motion blur for fluid and responsive gameplay. In addition, ASUS Variable Overdrive technology ensures consistently smooth visuals at variable frame rates.

Exceptional gaming visuals on PC and console


TUF VG28UQL1A has an HDMI 2.1 port that enables native 4K 120 Hz visuals (4:4:4) when playing on the latest gaming consoles. An Auto-Low-Latency mode helps reduce input lag to ensure extremely fluid gameplay, and Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) technology prevents tearing and stuttering for a completely immersive next-gen console gaming experience. In addition, a DisplayPort ™ 1.4 connection offers stable 144 Hz visuals, with DSC technology handling ultrahigh-definition video streams at high speeds so there’s no perceptible loss in image quality when gaming on PC.

Supersmooth gameplay

TUF Gaming VG28UQL1A features ASUS ELMB Sync technology and a 1 ms gray-to-gray (GTG) response time. ELMB Sync enables the use of ELMB and variable-refresh-rate technologies simultaneously for fluid and responsive gameplay. Compatible with G-SYNC, the monitor can also use a combination of FreeSync Premium and Variable Overdrive technologies to ensure supersmooth gaming at variable frame rates.
