AOC, best known for their displays and computer monitors, have officially announced the U.S. availability of their new premium line of gaming monitors, the AGON series. The first one that’ll be available within the U.S. is the AG271QX, a QHD gaming monitor sporting a 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time.
With the AOC AGON AG271QX, gamers can enjoy clear and detailed graphics thanks to its high-speed TN panel at a native resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. The AG271QX also features Adaptive-Sync support to reduce tearing and minimize input lag. Currently the gaming monitor is priced at $599 and can be bought at Amazon, Best Buy, and NewEgg.
We’ve been told that the NVIDIA G-SYNC version, the AGON AG271QG, will also have a 27-inch IPS display with 165Hz refresh rates. The IPS display with QHD resolution will deliver excellent clarity and extra-wide viewing angles, as one would expect from an IPS. Effrontery though, this monitor won’t be available until October for $799.

The AGON monitors also come with AOC’s Flicker-Free Technology and the AOC’ Low Blue Light mode that reduce eye strain, discomfort, and fatigue during long gaming periods. There’s even adjustable gaming presets that gamers can configure themselves. These gaming modes can be combined with the AOC QuickSwitch Controller, allowing the user to switch between modes and adjust brightness, contrast and other gaming features.
For now that’s all we’ve got, but we’ll keep you updated as more happens with AOC’s AGON line of gaming monitors.
