ASUS ROG Strix XG32V Curved 32" Freesync Monitor Review

Curved screens are moving from the lounge to the office with the ASUS ROG Strix 31.5". Is it a gimmick or a genuine display solution?



Read our review for ASUS' ROG Strix XG32V Curved 32" Freesync Monitor.

Basically AOC AGON AG322QCX with better QC, 100e price premium and without the ghosting issues?

Getting a bit tired of 1080p here, hmm.

I agree that 1440 is the right spot for this size of monitor. I'm not all that big into the 4K hysteria that everybody else is at least not in screen sizes below 27. I'm sure you can find some differences in image quality but you're gonna have to look to find them and you're gonna have to be side by side with a 1440 to do it. Not to mention the huge load they are fr GPU's. A 1080 can rip thru just about any game at max settings and still take advantage of 1440 and a 1080 Ti definitely can. 4K, not so much.

I also really like that VA panels are making their way into the gaming segment with fast response times and refresh rates. I much prefer the VA image quality to TN which is what was pretty much our only option for the last forever or so. Still not sure how I would like the curved screen though. I wish there was a place around here I could check one out and see cause they do look intriguing.

TTL would you recommend this screen for a Nvidia user? I have the PG279Q but that screen is just getting too small for my old eyes, and I find my 32" Omen screen much more enjoyable for everyday work and watching movies. I just need a good gaming screen to replace the PG279Q considering the 32" Omen is 60 Hz only

Have you tried 70hz on the Omen?

I bought its predecessor (the B&O) and even though it says that 70hz is only for AMD I got it working no worries. Coils whine a little but image is solid.

Try out Adaptive and Fast Sync on the Omen and see how you get on. Fast should give you much higher FPS than the screen is rated for any way.

It supports 75 Hz but only with Freesync. If you try to enable the screen above 60 Hz with a Nvidia card, you will get lots of frame skipping (I did test the UFO test and it was terrible)

Hmm weird. Was that with Adaptive sync? I can't say I get anything other than the odd weird frame. But that's like once every 20 mins or so.
