    Asus ROG Strix and TUF 27-inch curved 165Hz monitors detailed

    The biggest difference is that the Strix model uses a 1440p panel with VESA DisplayHDR 400.

    Indeed - same with "VESA DisplayHDR 400" which is not actually HDR, but an invented a "bottom tier" purely for marketing purposes.

    It's nice to see the better VA panels making their way down to this sort of price point though regardless of the marketing spin - and with reasonable refresh rates too.

    27" at 1080p is not 'some serious specs' as Asus claim - if you want to avoid jaggies you'd have to be some distance away, which then makes the curve problematic.

    At least G-Sync Ultimate gives you a superb monitor (for a price), if all Freesync Premium Pro gives is HDR400, then I guess the only redeeming factor is that it's cheaper.

    Why do you need a curve on a 27inch 16:9 panel, Seems stupid in my opinion.
    Curves make sense on large ultra wide screens.
    HDR400 is also pointless and should be scrapped on all screens.
