AOC has announced a brand-new gaming monitor, the 28” G2868PQU with Ultra HD / 4K resolution.
To “meet the demands of gamers looking for crisp and vivid imagery and sharp gameplay”, the new display boasts a next-gen HDR-ready TN panel with 1 ms response time.
The G2868PQU also supports AMD FreeSync which eliminates stutter and screen-tear caused by mismatched image frames between the graphics card and the monitor.
The G2868PQU’s narrow bezels, red and black accents, as well as the angular 130 mm height-adjustable ergonomic stand underline its gaming-focused build. This HDR-ready display is equipped with a new 28” TN panel, covering 102% of sRGB and 82% of AdobeRGB colour gamuts. Thus, users will not just see 4x as many details as on a Full HD display, but experience vivid colours and popping visuals as well.
In addition, users of AMD GPUs can achieve a stutter and tear-free gameplay with less input lag and a refresh rate of up to 60Hz by utilising AMD FreeSync.
Just like the AGON series, the G2868PQU is also equipped with the following gaming-specific features in its on-screen menu:
– With AOC’s Game Color, users can adjust the colour saturation, oversaturating the image if the content is dull-looking, or under-saturating for better grey levels.
– With AOC’s Shadow Control, users can dial in shadow levels to brighten dark areas and vice versa to better see details in dark or too bright/washed-out areas without affecting the whole image.
– AOC Game Modes, with specific adjustments for different game genres (FPS, Racing, RTS), plus three user customisable modes.
– AOC Dial Point, where users can place an aiming indicator in FPS games that lack an in-game crosshair, so they can still aim precisely and accurately.
AOC’s G2868PQU will be available from March 2019 at an MSRP of £319.
