AOC AGON gaming monitors now come with IPS and G-Sync technology

Earlier this year, AOC launched its AGON series of premium gaming monitors, aiming to take on the competition by offering high-refresh rate 2560×1440 displays. Now, the line-up has just got better, with the addition of G-Sync variable refresh rate technology and IPS panels.

The AGON AG271QG is a 2560×1440 IPS monitor featuring an ultra-fast 165Hz refresh rate, eliminating motion blur, screen tearing and display stutter with the addition of G-Sync.


You can find the general specifications for this monitor below:

  • Monitor Size: 27 Inch
  • Screen Format: 16:9
  • Brightness: 350 cd/m2 (type)
  • Contrast Ratio: 1000:1
  • Dynamic Contrast Ratio: 50M:1
  • Viewing Angle: 178/178
  • Response time: 4 ms
  • Maximum Resolution: 2560×1440@165Hz

Being an updated G-Sync monitor, this also supports HDMI output in addition to DisplayPort. The stand also has height adjustment and pivot, no swivel though which is a shame. The monitor will hit stores next month for £639.99 in the UK.

KitGuru Says: IPS gaming monitors have come a long way in the last couple of years, achieving ultra-high refresh rates and lower response times than ever before. Are any of you in the market for a new monitor? Are you thinking about going with a high refresh rate 1440p panel?
