AOC has announced four new G2 Series gaming monitors, all with Full HD (1920×1080 pixels).
Available in 27” (68.6 cm) variants 27G2U and 27G2U5, and the smaller 23.8” (60.4 cm) 24G2U and 24G2U5, all models are available with AMD FreeSync and boast a 1 ms MPRT response time to ensure a fluid gaming experience without motion blur.
Fans of fast-paced, competitive games swill find the 27G2U or 24G2U with a 144 Hz refresh rate ideal, while fans of slower games can opt for the 27G2U5 or 24G2U5 with a 75 Hz refresh rate.
Built around colour-accurate IPS panels, imagery on the G2 Series monitors promises to be vivid, even when seen from wide viewing angles of 178°/178°.
The G2 Series incorporates a number of other gaming-specific features. The low input lag ensures that users will receive the visual feedback of their actions without any noticeable delay. By adjusting AOC Game Color, gamers can increase or decrease the colour saturation to better see their opponents. Using the Dial Point feature, gamers can place a crosshair in the middle of the screen to help them aim precisely and accurately. FlickerFree technology and Low Blue Light mode help to better accommodate longer gaming sessions. Finally, a new, customised gaming software for adjusting these (and more) settings is also included in the package.
All four models offer two HDMI interfaces, a DisplayPort for connecting a variety of sources and a VGA input for legacy computers. Users can choose to connect their headset to the headphones output or use the integrated 2W speakers. A built-in USB hub gives gamers the option of connecting peripherals such as keyboard and/or mouse.
The 144 Hz 27G2U and 24G2U will debut in the shops in September and the 75 Hz 27G2U5 and 24G2U5 in October 2019.
MSRPs of the monitors are as follows: 24G2U (£179,00), 24G2U5 (£149,00), 27G2U (£229,00), 24G2U5 (£189,00).
