Asus VG278HE, the first PC monitor with a 144 Hz refresh rate

Asus has just introduced VG278HE, the company’s new 3D monitor that boosts the refresh rate above what the competition is able to offer at the moment. VG278HE builds on the previously released VG278H model, and features a 144 Hz refresh rate against the traditional 120 Hz rate common to the other 3D monitors available on the market.

Like the previous model, the VG278HE monitor is based on a 27” TN (Twisted Nematic) panel with a Full HD (1920x1080 pixels) native resolution. The Taiwanese company’s latest foray into display technology offers a 2 ms response time, three different connection interfaces (HDMI, dual-link DVI-D and a 15 pin D-Sub port also known as “standard VGA port”) and integrated stereo speakers (2x3 RMS).


The 120 Hz refresh rate is most commonly marketed as the perfect solution for 3D (non-stereoscopic) gaming, and VG278HE supports the Nvidia 3D Vision 2 technology as well for this kind of use with compatible GPUs and video games.

In addition to allegedly being a first for the monitor industry, the 144 Hz refresh rate of the new Asus product should bring a smoother computing experience for gamers and regular PC users as well. As for the VG278HE price and availability, Asus has yet to give the information out.
