AOC’s AGON brand has just released a new 27-inch Q27G3XMN/BK monitor designed specifically for gamers looking for high-performance HDR gaming at an affordable price point. The monitor features a Fast VA panel with QHD (2560×1440) resolution and MiniLED backlighting technology, which offers 336 dimming zones and VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certification for an immersive HDR experience.
The Full Range Local Dimming (FALD) backlight solution enhances the HDR experience by allowing some parts of the screen to be completely black while keeping others at a very high brightness. The monitor also boasts a 10-bit color depth (8-bit + FRC), producing 1.07 billion colors and high color gamut coverage (+95% DCI-P3).
When it comes to performance, the monitor delivers with a 180Hz refresh rate and 1ms GtG response time, providing smooth and responsive gameplay. It also has an ergonomic stand that offers numerous options for height, tilt, rotation, and adjustment, as well as Flicker-Free technology and Low Blue to protect your eyes during prolonged gaming sessions. Additionally, the Shadow Control option allows gamers to adjust shadow levels and highlights to customize the visual experience of gameplay and more easily see enemies hiding in dark corners.
The monitor also supports Adaptive-Sync, which eliminates tearing and stuttering by allowing for a variable refresh rate. It comes equipped with a Dial Point overlay for precise aiming in FPS gaming and features OSD adjustment options that can be accessed using software or the OSD buttons on the monitor itself. The recommended retail price for this new AGON by AOC monitor is 399 euros, and it will be available in November.
