ASUS has released the ROG Strix OLED XG27AQDMG, a new 27-inch gaming monitor that shares its underlying WOLED panel technology with the LG UltraGear OLED 27GS95QE. However, the ASUS ROG Strix OLED XG27AQDMG is the first of its kind to feature a glossy coating, compared to the matte coating of the LG UltraGear OLED 27GS95QE.

ASUS has revealed a few OLED gaming monitors of late, including the ROG Swift OLED PG39WCDM. Now, the company has released the ROG Strix OLED XG27AQDMG, a monitor that it compares against last year's ROG Swift OLED PG27AQDM in its marketing materials. In short, the XG27AQDMG matches the PG27AQDM with a 1440p resolution and a 240 Hz refresh rate.

Thus, it would seem that little actually separates the XG27AQDMG from its predecessor. However, there are a few noteworthy improvements, including one that is exclusive to the XG27AQDMG. According to ASUS, the XG27AQDMG gets 20% brighter across its entire 27-inch panel (100% APL) than the PG27AQDM.

Unfortunately, ASUS has not yet shared specific brightness details. Nonetheless, the monitor's other specifications suggest that the XG27AQDMG utilises the same third-generation WOLED panel technology as the UltraGear OLED 27GS95QE (curr. $729 on Amazon) that LG released earlier this year. With that being said, ASUS has applied a glossy coating to the XG27AQDMG, which it claims is a first for a WOLED monitor. Currently, the XG27AQDMG is available in Canada and China for CAD$1,083.99 and CNY 4,999 (~$691), respectively. ASUS has not revealed pricing for other markets yet, such as Europe and the US.
