1080p is still the most common resolution used by today's gamers, but compelling 4k monitor options are stacking up in the marketplace. AOC has a new 28" monitor in the works that combines a 4K resolution and AMD's FreeSync tech in a 28" package.
The AOC U2879VF houses a 28" TN panel with a 16:9 aspect ratio. HDMI 2.0 connectivity enables 4K refresh rates up to 60Hz on that port. The panel has a claimed 300 cd/m2 maximum brightness and an 80 million:1 dynamic contrast ratio. The U2879VF also offers an unusually wide color gamut for a TN panel: 1.07 billion colors. The 1ms response time could help reduce ghosting. The monitor also takes advantage of AMD's FreeSync variable refresh technology to minimize stuttering and tearing with Radeon graphics cards.
For connectivity, the AOC U2879VF has VGA, DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort and MHL ports, and AOC backs it up with a three-year warranty. The company expects the display to sell for about 350€, or about $400.
