If you've just picked up a brand-new Radeon RX 480, you may want to take a look at AOC's new monitor, too. The C3583FQ is a gently-curved 2560x1080 LED-backlit monitor with a 35" diagonal. It features a vertical-alignment (VA) panel with a 4ms response time, and it supports 144 Hz operation at its native resolution. FreeSync is supported too, but there's no word on the sync range, so we've asked AOC for clarification on that point.
Thanks to the VA panel, AOC says the C3583FQ can be viewed at angles up to 178 degrees in either direction, and it should have great contrast. Unfortunately, the company's press release only lists dynamic contrast figures for the monitor, but we know it can produce brightness up to 300 cd/m². Twin five-watt stereo speakers are included, as well as a 3.5mm jack to pass-through HDMI audio.
Like most curved monitors, AOC's latest doesn't support VESA mounting. The stand is non-removable anyhow, as AOC placed all of the monitor's ports on the back of the its base. That design does avoid a dangling cable mess, so it should give the monitor a slightly cleaner look when in operation. Two DisplayPorts, two HDMI inputs (both with MHL support), a DVI connection, and even a VGA connection are included. AOC has the C3583FQ up on Amazon right now for $599.
