28-Inches of TUF Gaming: The ASUS VG289Q 4K IPS Monitor w/ DCI-P3 & FreeSync

ASUS has introduced a new TUF-series monitor, which is designed for mainstream gamers who need a quality monior with support for major features, but are not necessarily interested in extreme performance. The TUF Gaming VG289Q combines all the main selling points of modern gaming displays: a large screen size with a 4K resolution, AMD’s FreeSync variable refresh rate, and DCI-P3 as well as HDR support.

Based on a non-glare 28-inch IPS panel, the ASUS TUF Gaming VG289Q has a 3840×2160 resolution, 350 nits peak luminance, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 178°/178° viewing angles, a 5 ms GtG response time, and a 60 Hz refresh rate. Overall then, ASUS seems to be covering their bases by building a modest monitor around a solid 28-inch panel, but not chasing high-end features like high refresh rates that quickly drive up the price of a monitor.

Meanwhile, the TUF Gaming VG289Q monitor can display 1.07 billion colors and covers 90% of the DCI-P3 color gamut, something that will please multimedia enthusiasts. The LCD also technically supports HDR modes — the ASUS Multi HDR (for games and movies) mode as well as the HDR10 mode — although its peak brightness is too low for HDR, so the actual HDR user experience is something that remains to be seen.

Because the TUF VG289Q is designed for gamers, it inherits pre-set display modes for gaming, including genre-specific Gamevisual presets, Gameplus overlays (crosshair, time, FPS counter), and Shadow Boost feature that makes darker areas lighter without overexposing bright areas within a scene.

As far as connectivity is concerned, the ASUS TUF VG289Q has one DisplayPort 1.2, two HDMI 2.0 ports, and a headphone jack, an essential set of connectors to plug-in a PC and a couple of game consoles. Meanwhile, the monitor comes with a stand that can adjust height, swivel, tilt, and orientation.

ASUS has not announced pricing of its TUF Gaming VG289Q display, but considering positioning of the TUF brand and characteristics of the LCD, the product should be priced reasonably for a 28-incher. As for its launch date, the monitor should become available in the near future.
