ASUS is, without a doubt, one of the most respected names when it comes to PC hardware and peripherals. Since the start of the year, however, we have seen a very significant push from the company to enhance the ‘TUF Gaming‘ branding. While not necessarily pushing it to the lengths of ‘Republic of Gamers’, it seems pretty clear that ASUS wants ‘TUF Gaming’ to mean more to consumers than it currently does. And, with the official launch of the TUF Gaming VG279QL1A HDR gaming monitor, it seems that this new product shouldn’t do that remit any harm at all!
