AGON by AOC has unveiled the first monitors from its new, 5th generation series: the AG275QX/EU and the AG275QXN/EU. Featuring a 27″ (68.6cm) display size and Fast IPS (AG275QX/EU) or Fast VA panels (AG275QXN/EU), both QHD models reach a 165Hz refresh rate and offer 1ms GtG response time to display fast moving, competitive action accurately. Meanwhile, DisplayHDR 400 and a wide colour gamut render popping, vivid colours.
The AG275QXN/EU features a flat Fast VA panel, with a responsiveness fit for competitive multiplayer titles while having the rich contrast of VA panels to create a fantastic immersion for story-driven, single player games. The AG275QX/EU on the other hand, features superior colour accuracy and 10-bit colour depth with its Fast IPS panel, ideal for the content creator/gamer audience. In line with AOC’s dedication to sustainability, the monitors are sold in paper cushion packaging that is 100% recyclable.
These monitors feature a brand new, angular design with straight lines, a premium and sturdy metal base with minimal footprint, 3-sides frameless panels as well as a height-adjustable, ergonomic stand with built-in carrying handle for easy transport to LAN parties or tournaments.
So what’s under the hood of the AGON 5 model?
QHD resolution, 165Hz, 1ms GtG (VA or IPS).
The AG275QX/EU with its flat Fast IPS panel employs 10-bit colour depth to reproduce 1.07 billion colours with high colour accuracy. To handle fast-paced competitive action, its 165 Hz refresh rate (overclockable to 170 Hz) and 1ms GtG response time delivers sharp, practically ghosting-free visuals. Thanks to IPS technology, the AG275QX/EU offers excellent wide viewing angles.
The AG275QXN/EU features a flat Fast VA panel with an outstanding 1ms GtG response time, quashing the negative stigma towards “slower” VA panels. Equipped with one of the first flat VA panels with a 1ms GtG in the world, the AG275QXN/EU delivers a responsiveness just as fast as its IPS siblings thanks to its 165 Hz refresh rate, with the added benefit of deeper blacks and higher contrast ratio of 3000:1.
