AOC introduces the first model in the new line of Agon Pro monitors. The AG254FG is a 24.5″ model with an IPS panel, a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels and a refresh rate of 360Hz. The screen has G-Sync Ultimate and Nvidia Reflex support.
According to AOC, the Agon Pro AG254FG has a gray-to-gray response time of 1ms and the mprt is 0.5ms. The screen has VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification, meaning peak brightness is at least 400cd/m2, but AOC doesn’t report any further details on brightness and contrast on the specs page .
The screen contains an Nvidia G-Sync Ultimate module, for a variable refresh range from 1 to 360Hz. The screen also has support for Nvidia’s Reflex Latency Analyzer. That is a set of techniques that should ensure fast response times. The monitor has a DisplayPort 1.4 connection and is equipped with adjustable RGB lighting on the back. On the front are LEDs that can project a logo onto the surface the monitor is on.
The AG254FG has a height-adjustable base that can also be turned and tilted. AOC also supplies a hood to shield the monitor on the sides and top. According to the manufacturer, this is useful for e-athletes and provides “better visibility when the stage lighting is bright during tournaments.” With a wired remote control, the QuickSwitch, the settings of the monitor can be adjusted quickly. The display also has a USB hub with four USB-A ports.
AOC will release its first 360Hz monitor in September for a suggested retail price of 849 euros. Asus, Acer, Alienware and MSI previously released 360Hz monitors . These are also 24.5″ variants with a full HD resolution, IPS panels and G-Sync. Prices in the Pricewatch range from about 650 to 850 euros. LG Display and AU Optronics are now working on 480Hz panels . When appearing in monitors is not yet known.
