We’ve all seen high-refresh rate monitors. But what if there was a portable gaming monitor? Well, that’s what the Asus ROG Strix XG17AHP is all about.
Kicking things off, the Strix XG17AHP features a 17.3″ FHD IPS display with wide viewing angles and a 240 Hz refresh rate for super smooth gaming. It also has a built-in 7800 mAh battery that delivers up to 3.5 hours of on-the-go gaming at maximum frame rate. In addition, quick-charge technology provides up to two hours of gaming at 240 Hz after an hour of charging time.
The Strix XG17AHP also packs USB Type‑C & micro-HDMI ports so you can even hook up your smartphone or tablet and a range of other peripherals. The monitor weighs in at 1060 grams, and includes ROG Tripod, a Smart Cover and an ROG carry bag.
The 240 Hz refresh rate of Strix XG17AHP ensures supersmooth gameplay, and supports VESA Adaptive-Sync technology. This automatically synchronizes the display’s refresh rate with the GPU’s output at refresh rates ranging between 48 Hz and 240 Hz. In addition, Adaptive Sync prevents screen tearing and keeps the onscreen action supersmooth — even if frame rates drop below the panel’s native refresh rate.
