Chinese display manufacturer AOC recently announced that it planned to release a new line of gaming monitors under the brand name Agon. Today it's released details for the first display in the series, the AG271QX.
The AG271QX is a 27”, 2560 x 1440 display. Its TN panel has a 1ms response time and a 144Hz refresh rate. The display supports FreeSync through a wide 30-100Hz refresh rate range. On the more nuts-and-bolts side, the display’s stand allows for height, tilt, and swivel adjustment.
We have seen most of these features from AOC’s displays before, though. The thing that sets this display apart from the company’s normal fare, and apparently earns it the Agon brand, is the display’s bold red-and-black styling. This design language is a pretty major departure from the AOC’s normally understated matte-black bezels.
AOC hasn't specified what connectivity options are available for this display yet. The company expects the AG271QX to show up at retailers in June. AOC suggests a starting price of €599, which works out to $685 at today's exchange rates. We don't know whether that European price tag includes VAT, which could affect the final figure.
