This 35-inch ultrawide monitor combines a curved form factor with a 100 Hz refresh rate and FreeSync support. It’s also tilt, swivel and height adjustable, so it should fit on most desks.
The 35-inch XG35VQ displays at an ultrawide 3440 x 1440 resolution and has a refresh rate of 100 Hz. You won’t get HDR, but this monitor otherwise hits above the standard in most areas.
Ultrawide monitors and high refresh rate monitors can make for some of the best gaming monitors, thanks to their enhanced field of view and higher frame rates. While the curved form factor may not be for everyone, in our testing we found that the XG35VQ's 18000R curve added immersion to gaming without distorting spreadsheets or word processors. Meanwhile, a 1ms response time helped reduce input lag, while AMD FreeSync fought screen tearing.
