Asus ROG XG438Q freesync2 with Xbox X ?
« on: 11:50 AM - 08/23/19 »
Hello!

Soon incoming intresting monitor for both PC and console.

https://www.asus.com/Monitors/ROG-Strix-XG438Q/

But does this support all candies with Xbox One X: HDR + freesync + 4k ??

HDR not so fancy but maybe ok.

Is it only availible in 43 inch? That would be a bit too big ???

Mainly playing CoD   ▪   1600dpi   ▪   Default sync   ▪   1000hz
Play fair, have fun

Yes, quite a lot monitor there.

Maybe fixing it to desk with external stand would help. Dont know what its in english.

But you cant use HDR and freesync (adaptive sync) with Nvidia cards so thats deal breaker to me.

And not sure is it able to handle all candies with Xbox if freesync is possible.

Yep, no doubt.

But will it handle 4k + hdr + freesync? Is this monitors HDMI VRR.

I think will anyway skip this, no HDR + freesync (adaptivesync) on Nvidia cards.

I wouldn't bother. The 120hz and freesync on the X is buggy. I have a monitor that supports both and it's a worse experience than my 60hz benq.

Yes. As long as you are still using the HDMI 2.0 cable that came with the Xbox One X.

Xim gamers can't use HDR. There is an input delay by the xbox not the monitor. Freesync2 will stitch up the HDR delay on the monitor but not on the Xbox. Also the TV has pretty big input lag in general. ASUS aren't best. Samsung and Omen by HP are the fastest monitors. Dell are good too. Ben Q, Asus, and Toshiba monitors have bad delay. Before someone says "hey I have an Asus" just try a 1ms Samsung and come back to me.

Unfortunately the freesync 2 was never and will never work on Xbox. It was a possible feature that made the marketing better. But we won't get any innovation on Xbox until Scarlett is out.
The Happy Camper Cavalry is a group of Xim gamers that strive to be the best on Xbox. EST. 2015. Current members include Top 500 (actually top 20) Overwatch players, Apex Predators, & top ranked R6 Legends. That & just an overall good group of guys, & a lady.

I've got a free sync TV and it only renders 1440 at 120hz, the problems the hdmi port on the 1x . it dont allow enough bandwidth through for 4k  , I think that's correct. lol
