Hello nest, which fw did u get? I tried yesterday to check if there is new version but it seems that you had initial version. Mine is up to date....but after RMA fan (which was only cleaned) I am very satisfied with this LCD 🙂

I had initial version with black crush. Now I can use 144Hz without problems. I am expecting problems with fans too, I noticed change of its sound (nothing to do with fw change).

One question. I read that not all the models of PG27UQ needs de firmware update. Only the first ones. Is this true? I bought mine this year. Do I need to do the update? In the support FAQ mentioned in this thread (https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1036750/), it says literally that "In the serial number, if the second digit is 6, the firmware can be refreshed". But the second digit in my serial number is 8. Does that mean that I CANÂ´T update my firmware or that i DONÂ´T NEED to do the update? For now, I canÂ´t test the 144Hz because I have an nvidia GTX980Ti, and in the manual of the monitor it says that you need at least an GTX 10 series GPU to use the 144Hz. But IÂ´m planning to get an GTX 3080. So I need to know what I have to do with my monitor in order to achieve the best performance with my new GPU. Thanks!!

There was an initial batch of PG27UQ that left the factory before ASUS found a firmware bug. Only the initial batch of units need the firmware update. Since you just bought yours and the serial number does not match, you do not need to do anything.
After ASUS caught the bug, they halted sales for 1-2 months while they recalled back all the monitors that hadn't been sold so they could flash them.
I was super excited and was determined to be a day 1 buyer of the PG27UQ and got a unit with the firmware bug. Had fun waiting over a year I believe for the firmware fix.
