Yes. Meanwhile I also updated the Asus driver that actually is on their support page and also a DP 1.3/1.4 update for my GTX1080ti. Still the same error.

Edit: Tried again today, did nothing different and for some reason it now worked and updated just fine.

Hash Mismatch.


Followed every step, using DP, reset screen to default, disabled overclock, disabled gsync and put it in normal mode, 4k @60hz, closed all programs, no 2nd monitor/ usb device plugged in, onscreen gameplay features deactivated, tried restarting pc.

Also the serial number is 6, so it is qualified for the firmware update, it came from the initial release.


What the hell am I doing wrong?

I used tftcentral recommended setting and everything was great. Now I can't even look at screen in HDR. It is just too bright.

I somewhat snapped and may or may not have told them to f*ck off in a more or less polite way. Around two weeks later I received another email with that link I posted here.


I don't know if ASUS made the tool "public" by now, and I don't care anymore if they do. I got really tired with ASUS being so silent regarding this tool, FAQ got updated Nov. 2018 I believe. Plus the monitor scene seems very uninspiring to me recently. Sure, PG27UQX, I can see it but it's not enough reason for me to "upgrade". I don't understand the PG349Q release either in 2019, maybe I'm missing the point. I'm out for now in terms of monitors and will be back when OLEDs or equivalents see the light of the day.
Man, it's so frustrating... I sent my PG27UQ back in April to Asus and had to wait one month for the update... I should have waited 1 month and do it myself.
At this point, I thought Asus would never release the firmware to public.
