Certifications and Partnerships
XG270 Gaming Monitor is now NVIDIA G-SYNC and Blur Busters Certified. NVIDIA has certified that XG270 models are G-SYNC compatible. And by making use of NVIDIA video cards, we are ensured of tear-free and smooth gameplay with a refresh rates of up to 240 Hz.
ELITE has partnered with Blur Busters in tuning the PureXP, ViewSonic Elite’s own strobe back-light technology. This reduces motion blur found while playing games. By enhancing PureXP, we get a 0.6 Moving Picture Response Time (MPRT), improved GTG, and prevent degradation of color quality of the monitor.
The Elite RGB Alliance allows the new XG27 series and XG27QC to sync up with two partners of ELITE: ThermalTake and Razer. Razer’s Chroma and ThermalTake TT RGB can now link with ELITE RGB via the ELITE Display Controller software. By using this feature, we can further customize our own lighting setup.
We can download the beta version of the ELITE Display Controller here. The final version is slated to be out on February 2020
