ASUS has presented the first example of a dual display mode LCD gaming monitor. To be sold as the ROG Strix XG27UCG, the 27-inch gaming monitor will be capable of operating at 4K and 160 Hz or 1080p and 320 Hz on demand.

ASUS claims to have announced the first LCD monitor to support dual-mode technology. Dual mode technology, which debuted earlier this year with the ASUS ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDP and LG UltraGear OLED 32GS95UE, allows a monitor to offer two resolution and refresh rate options within one package. Like those models, the ROG Strix XG27UCG can switch between 4K and 1080p resolutions, with 4K being the default.

However, while the ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDP and UltraGear OLED 32GS95UE support 240 Hz and 480 Hz refresh rates in 4K and 1080p display models, respectively, the ROG Strix XG27UCG falls a bit short in this area. Specifically, the latter combines its default 4K mode with a 160 Hz refresh rate, which it can double to 320 Hz upon enabling 1080p mode.

Additionally, the 27-inch monitor has a 'Fast IPS' panel with 1 ms GtG response times. As such, the native 4K output ensures a pixel density of 164 pixels per inch (PPI). Unfortunately, ASUS has not yet confirmed the pricing or availability of the ROG Strix XG27UCG. With that being said, it has specified that the monitor will feature DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.1, and USB Type-C (Power Delivery) connectivity.
