AOC has made some decent ultrawide gaming monitors over the years, but the new AGON Pro AG344UXM might be its best yet. The new monitor sports a Mini-LED display with 1152 dimming zones, DisplayHDR 1000 certification and 170Hz refresh rate for ultra-smooth gaming – you'll need deep pockets to afford it though.
The AG344UXM expands the AGON PRO portfolio of high-end monitors with a new ultrawide model. The Mini-LED backlight and number of local dimming zones allow the panel to achieve deeper black levels and provide an excellent HDR viewing experience, with up to 1000 nits peak brightness. The main panel is IPS too, so you get great viewing angles, 10-bit colour depth and wide colour gamut coverage, including 99% DCI-P3 and 100% sRGB.
As an AGON PRO monitor, very few compromises are made here, so you get a maximum 170Hz refresh rate for ultra-smooth gaming at 3440×1440 resolution, as well as 1ms GtG response time, so input latency will remain low. You also get support for Adaptive-Sync technology, so you can use G-Sync Compatible mode on Nvidia PCs or FreeSync on AMD systems to eliminate screen tearing.
The display has a DisplayPort 1.4 connection as well as HDMI 2.1 connectivity, so it will play nicely with new-gen consoles too. Users will also benefit from a USB-C input, which supports display signal and up to 90W power delivery. Other features include a 4-port USB hub and a KVM switch to control the device connected via USB-C.
The AOC AGON Pro AG344UXM will be available starting in July 2022, priced at £1,429.99.

KitGuru Says: As nice as this monitor is on paper, that is a very steep price tag. What's the most you would spend on a new gaming monitor for your setup?
