Update: It appears that some of the information displayed on AOC’s website earlier this week was incorrect. This particular monitor does NOT offer 1440p resolution. It is a 1080p panel with a 240Hz refresh rate. The title has been amended to reflect this and previous mentions of 1440p have been removed. We apologise for the confusion caused.
Usually when you set out to buy a new monitor, you are stuck with the same maximum refresh rate across all resolutions. Your 60Hz display isn’t suddenly going to push 120Hz if you lower the resolution. However, it looks like this could start changing soon as AOC has just announced its latest AGON gaming monitor, which lets you switch between higher resolution or higher refresh rates depending on preference.
The AOC AGON AG251FG houses a native 1080p panel with a maximum refresh rate of 240Hz.
Aside from that, this monitor also features G-Sync, so you do away with screen tearing and have a smoother experience overall. The panel in use here measures in at 24.5-inches with a peak brightness of 400 cd/m2, a dynamic contrast ratio of 50m:1 and a 1ms response time.
Here is a more general breakdown of the display:
- Display 24.5″ TN @ 240 Hz.
- Resolution 1920×1080 pixels.
- Sync technology: G-SYNC.
- Signal input: 1 x HDMI, 1 x DisplayPort, 4 x USB 3.0.
- Audio out.
- Microphone in/out.
- Special features: Ergonomic stand, NVIDIA ULMB mode.
- Stereo speakers.
- 1ms response time.
This particular monitor is set to begin shipping out in August this year with an MSRP of £519.
