Taiwanese monitor manufacturer AOC is eagerly striding into the enthusiast market. The company announced the C3583FQ 35" ultrawide display yesterday, and back at the end of April we saw the first release in the company's Agon gaming brand. Today, the company is announcing two more models under that marque: the AG241QG and AG241QX. The AG241QX supports FreeSync and a 144Hz refresh rate, while AG241QG is equipped with G-Sync and a slightly higher 165 Hz refresh.
Aside from those basic specs, both models are 24-inch 2560x1440 displays with a 1ms response time. Those quick transitions come courtesy of a—yep, you guessed it—TN panel. AOC insists that there are "no compromises regarding color quality," though. Like the majority of AOC's new displays, the monitors are PWM-flicker-free and feature a "low blue light" mode. AOC also includes a number of gaming-oriented features, including a low-input-lag mode and "Shadow Control," which sounds a lot like dynamic contast to our ears. The company expects that the AG241QX will be available in European markets in August for €449, while the AG241QG is set for a September arrival for €599.
