The ViewSonic ELITE Line of New Monitors Come with ELITE Ally and Feature Ultra-Fast Response Times, Refresh Rates up to 240Hz and Superior Color Support

 LAS VEGAS (Jan. 6, 2020) – ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of display solution products, unveils the latest line of ELITE XG-Series of gaming monitors, including the 55-inch XG550, 27-inch curved screen XG270QC and the G-SYNC compatible 27-inch XG270. The three monitors come with ELITE Ally, a USB-connected touch-screen device that allows users to quickly access on-screen display settings. The XG550 will be available in Q4 2020, the XG270QG launches in Q2 2020, and the XG270 is currently available worldwide.


The ViewSonic® ELITE XG550 is a 55-inch gaming monitor with native 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160) resolution. Featuring a 120Hz OLED panel, it delivers a highly responsive, life-like gaming experience, with a 0.5ms (GtG) response time. With the OLED panel, in-game environments come to life with exceptional contrast and 99% DCI-P3 color support, which makes it ideal for next-generation consoles and AAA-title games. The narrow-bezel design and ELITE RGB accent lighting design ensures that the XG550 fits into any gaming environment.



The 27-inch ELITE XG270QC gaming monitor is designed with a 1500R curvature to provide lifelike visuals and immerse gamers. It features VESA HDR 400 and native QHD (2560x1440) resolution, along with a 550 cd/m2 luminance and DCI-P3 > 90% color coverage. The XG270QC delivers a 165Hz refresh rate, 3ms (1ms MPRT) response time and AMD FreeSync® Premium Pro technology to ensure a seamless gaming experience.


ELITE XG270 with G-SYNC Compatibility and Blur Busters PureXP Strobe Certification

The ELITE XG270 is the world’s first Blur Buster’s -approved monitor, tuned and certified, providing gamers both fast GtG and fast MPRT options. ViewSonic ELITE™ has partnered with Blur Busters to tune PureXP, a specialized strobe backlight technology for the XG270. PureXP supercharges Moving Picture Response Time (MPRT) to achieve MPRT as low as 0.6ms. This eliminates strobe crosstalk, without effecting color quality, delivering the purest experience in display motion clarity. The XG270 supports G-SYNC and VESA Adaptive Sync technology for interoperability of variable refresh rate capabilities up to 240Hz.

ELITE RGB Alliance

With the ELITE XG27 series of gaming monitors, ELITE RGB can be synced with Razer and Thermaltake. Razer Chroma and Thermaltake TT RGB Plus link up with ELITE RGB via the monitors’ display controller software, allowing users to control both accent and ambient RGB lighting. With Razer Chroma, users gain access to the Chroma Workshop which features a collection of RGB profiles integrated by game developers from more than 135 popular titles. Utilizing both Razer Chroma and Thermaltake advanced RGB software allows gamers to control their RGB environment, allowing for the ultimate immersive gaming experience.


The ELITE Ally peripheral is a USB-connected touch-screen device that allows gamers to quickly access on-screen display settings, such as game modes, adaptive sync, HDR, brightness, contrast, RGB lighting and more. Users can fine-tune their gaming experience without touching the monitor or opening their ELITE display controller software. The ELITE Ally peripheral is currently only compatible with select ViewSonic ELITE gaming monitors.


The XG270QC launches in Q2 2020. The XG550 is scheduled to launch Q4, 2020. The XG270 is presently available worldwide with an estimated street price of $429.00 (USD).

The ELITE Display Controller beta version is available to download here, with the final version available to download February 2020.
