AOC is about to launch four new curved gaming monitors featuring high refresh rates, low response times, and FreeSync Premium. The four monitors have similar technical specifications, but the C24G2U/BK and the C27G2U/BK come with more connectivity options and a more ergonomic stand compared to the C24G2AE/BK and the C27G2AE/BK.
The four monitors feature curved (1500R) VA panels with 24 (C24G2AE/BK and C24G2U/BK) and 27 inches (C27G2AE/BK and C27G2U/BK), 1ms response time (MPRT), FullHD resolution, and 165Hz refresh rate. These 8-bit panels feature 178º (H)/178º (V) viewing angles, 250nits of brightness, and a 4000:1 contrast ratio, resulting in a coverage of about 120% of the sRGB colour gamut and 89% of the Adobe RGB colour gamut.
All of these monitors are certified for FreeSync Premium to ensure smoother and tearless gameplay sessions. They also come with 6 colour presets to choose from, depending on what you’re playing, and AOC Low Input Lag mode, which reduces the delay in your actions after pressing a button. You can choose one of the 6 colour presets from the OSD or through the G-Menu software, which also allows you to customise other monitor settings.
These monitors feature 2x HDMI 1.4 ports, a DisplayPort 1.2, 1x VGA, an audio-in 3.5mm jack, an audio-out 3.5mm jack, and 2x 2W speakers. Additionally, the C24G2U/BK and the C27G2U/BK also feature a USB hub with 4x USB-A 3.2 ports.
While the C24G2AE/BK and the C27G2AE/BK can only tilt (-4º to 21.5º), the stand of the C24G2U/BK and the C27G2U/BK allows you to adjust the monitor’s height by 130mm and swivel it (±35º). There’s also 100x100mm VESA support for these four monitors.
