AOC comes with 31.5 “monitor with DisplayHDR 400 and FreeSync 2 for 599 euros

AOC has announced its Agon AG322QC4 monitor. It is a 31.5″ monitor with a curved VA panel and a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels. The refresh rate is 144Hz and the gray-to-gray response time is 4ms.

According to the manufacturer, the AOC Agon AG322QC4 can display a peak brightness of 400cd/m2 and has a contrast ratio of 2000:1. The screen has been given a DisplayHDR 400 rating, which means that the monitor meets VESA requirements for displaying HDR images.

The 16:9 screen has a curvature of 1800R, which is equivalent to the curvature of a circle with a radius of 1.8 meters. The refresh rate is 144Hz and there is FreeSync 2 support, but the manufacturer does not mention the range over which FreeSync works. FreeSync 2 should also work at low frame rates with Low Frame-Rate Compensation.

The features of the AOC monitor are very similar to those of the BenQ EX3203R, also announced on Wednesday. The manufacturers may be using the same panel. However, the BenQ monitor does not have DisplayHDR certification, although BenQ calls a higher contrast ratio of 3000:1.

AOC’s new game monitor has an adjustable foot and a holder for a headset on the side. The holder is also collapsible. Furthermore, the monitor has a handle for transport and LED lighting in the lower screen edge and on the back of the housing. The color of the lighting is adjustable and there are three intensity levels.

The AOC Agon AG322QC4 is expected to be for sale from June, for a suggested retail price of 599 euros.
