ViewSonic Unveils The New Elite XG27 And XG05 Gaming Displays

Featuring adaptive sync technologies, fast response times, and high refresh rates in a gamer-inspired design.

ViewSonic has added five new monitors to its lineup of gaming monitors. These include the XG270, XG270QG, and XG270QC, all of which have 27-inch displays and are new additions to the Elite product line. The remaining two models in the XG05 series consist of a 24-inch and a 27-inch variant.

ViewSonic has recently introduced new high-performance gaming monitors with QHD and FHD resolutions for competitive gameplay. In addition, the company released a new Elite Ally accessory, which is essentially a USB-powered touchscreen for quickly accessing OSD settings, and a new Elite RGB Controller, which works with compatible monitors to access and manage their RGB accent backlighting.

Let’s examine the specifics of each model’s features, as there is a multitude of them across multiple screens.

Elite XG270QG

The premium model (shown above) features an IPS ‘Nano Color’ display with a QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution. The 27-inch display features Nvidia’s G-Sync technology and a refresh rate that can be overclocked from 144Hz to 165Hz. With a maximum brightness of 350 nits and no HDR support, the panel covers 98% of the DCI-P3 color space and has a response time of 1 ms (GTG).

Additional gamer-centric features include support for the previously mentioned Elite Display Controller and RGB ambient lighting, an integrated mouse anchor/bungee below the display, and a headphone hook on the left side. The monitor will become available in November for $600.

Elite XG270QC

The QC model abandons IPS technology in favor of a 27-inch VA panel with a 1500R curvature that is more immersive. It features a 165Hz refresh rate, AMD FreeSync 2, QHD resolution, 550 nits of peak brightness, 90% DCI-P3 coverage, and a 3ms (GTG) response time. Additionally, this monitor supports Elite RGB and gaming peripherals. The expected availability is in the first quarter of 2020.

Elite XG270

The XG270 features a 27-inch IPS panel with a maximum resolution of 1080p but the highest refresh rate (240Hz with Adaptive Sync) in the lineup. This monitor has a maximum luminance of 400 nits, 99 percent sRGB coverage, HDR10 support, and a response time of 1 ms (GTG).

In addition, there is support for the Elite Display Controller and RGB Lighting, as well as mouse and headphone jacks. When it becomes available in November, this monitor will cost $430.
