AOC adds the AG273QZ to its AGON gaming brand. The AG273QZ is a new TN-based 27" gaming display that shoots at the higher end of the market with a 0.5ms response time, 240Hz refresh rate, 2560 x 1440 pixels resolution, FreeSync Premium Pro, 93.7 percent of AdobeRGB color gamut, and 400 nits brightness. Pricing will be 769EUR in Europe.
Display specialist AOC announces a ground-breaking monitor dedicated to gamers looking for high performing gear, especially competitive players and esports enthusiasts. The 27” (68.6 cm) AOC AGON AG273QZ is mind-bogglingly fast, with a 240Hz refresh rate and an extremely low 0.5ms response time (MPRT). Its super-crisp QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels is on another level compared to current 240 Hz Full HD models. Hardcore gamers won’t need to decide between speed and image quality anymore. The AG273QZ is equipped with a next-gen TN panel, producing a wide spectrum of popping colours (126.4% sRGB, 93.7% AdobeRGB). It can achieve a peak brightness of 400 nits and is certified with VESA DisplayHDR 400, decoding and displaying HDR (High Dynamic Range) images. In addition, AMD FreeSync Premium Pro technology minimises latency caused by the extensive HDR tone mapping, while its variable refresh rate support eliminates stutter and tearing.

AGON - the name of AOC’s premium gaming series - was an ancient Greek term for conflict, struggle or rivalry. The brand-new AGON AG273QZ lives up to its name, as it is built for relentless competition with its 240 Hz refresh rate and 0.5 ms response time – resulting in a noticeable reduction of pixel transition time at only half a millisecond.

As a result, the AG273QZ doesn’t make any compromise but provides the best image quality and colour details whilst being lightning-fast.

The AG273QZ employs a TN panel in the future-proof QHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels) and supports VESA certified DisplayHDR400. Games and films supporting HDR can be displayed in ultra-realistic lighting conditions, drastically increasing immersion. The AG273QZ’s panel displays an impressively wide colour gamut (126.4% sRGB, 93.7% AdobeRGB) which is closer to life than ever. Speaking of colours: AOC’s Light FX is a customisable RGB LED ring on the back for gamers to show off their true colours.

AOC knows what gamers demand, not least because of its sponsorship of the G2 Esports team. Therefore, it is no surprise that they have added a convenient carrying handle to the top of the stand so that players can easily carry their gear at tournaments and LAN parties. In addition, gamers can find headset holders on each side to keep their desk tidy. The AG273QZ also comes with an ergonomic stand that allows adjustments in height, tilt, and swivel which keep gamers in a healthy posture. In addition, Flicker-Free technology and Low Blue Light mode minimise eye strain during long-term gaming marathons. Extra features include AOC Game Color, AOC Shadow Control, six game modes (three of which are user-customisable), a new updated OSD interface and a new OSD software (G-Menu).
