AOC releases its first 49 “monitor with a 32: 9 ratio. The Agon AG493UCX features a 120Hz panel based on the VA technology. The screen is curved and has a curvature of 1800R. The suggested retail price is 1089 euro.

AOC targets gamers with its Agon AG493UCX monitor. The screen has a brightness of 550c / dm² and a contrast ratio of 3000: 1. The moving picture response time, or mprt, is 1ms, while the manufacturer specifies a gray-to-gray response time of 4ms. The screen has FreeSync Premium Pro support from 48Hz and a DisplayHDR 400 certificate.

The curvature of 1800R corresponds to a circle with a radius of 1.8 meters. According to AOC, the VA panel can display 121 percent of the sRGB color space and 90 percent of AdobeRGB. The screen has two HDMI 2.0 and two Displayport 1.4 connections. Image input via USB-C is also possible.

The monitor has a built-in KVM switch, so that several PCs can be operated with one set of peripherals. There is also a picture-by-picture mode, so that two different 16: 9 sources can be displayed side by side.
