Taiwanese tech company AOC is continuing to raise the standards for design and performance with award-winning gaming monitors. The brand has yet again unveiled a new gaming monitor, the AOC AG273QX.

The new addition to the AGON series promises eSports-level performance. “This full package of highly desired features for shooter, MOBA, and arcade games will satisfy fans needs in terms of both speed and image quality,” said AOC.

The AG273QX is based on a 27-inch VA flat panel, but if you are a fan of the curvatures, there’s still the AOC AG273QCX or the AG273QCG. The panel offers a large 178 º horizontal and 178 º vertical viewing angles.

This model boasts a native 3000:1 contrast ratio that adds deep and inky blacks. With a QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution and VESA DisplayHDR 400 support, this monitor offers brilliant colors and can hit an impressive 400 nits peak brightness. Experience all the flashes and explosions in their natural colors, with some varying shades for the best immersive gaming.

In addition to the HDR content feature, the AGON AG273QX comes with AMD FreeSync 2 HDR, which adds low-latency HDR tone mapping, tear-free, and stutter-free gaming and Low Framerate Compensation. The monitor also comes with an impressive 165Hz refresh rate and blistering 1ms (MPRT) response time. For those playing games that require fast action, this is the deal.

And it’s not just the specifications; there are some game-dedicated features as well. FPS enthusiasts will love the DialPoint feature, which is basically an aim indicator that brings the crosshair in the middle of the screen. Other game features include AOC’s Shadow Control, AOC Game Colour, three preconfigured (FPS, Racing, RTS), and three user-customizable game modes.

In terms of connectivity, the AGON AG273QX comes with one VGA, DisplayPort1.2, and HDMI 2.0. There are also four USB 3.0 ports and a 3.5mm headphone out jack as well as inbuilt speakers.

As far as the design goes, AOC AG273QX boasts sleek, 3-side frameless bezel design. The monitor is also adjustable and features a -3-/30 ° swivel and ­3.5/21.5 ° tilt. It is also VESA wall-mountable – 75x75mm. At the back, there is the Light FX customizable RGB lighting for lighting up your battle station. The whole unit is easily portable courtesy of a carry handle and one-click easy assembly.

Regarding availability, the new AOC AGON AG273QX gaming monitor will be available in November. The retail price in the US has not been confirmed, but it should be around $550, going by the estimates of the UK pricing, which has been confirmed.
