AOC, best known for their various PC monitors, has announced the availability schedule of two new monitors within their gaming platform, the Agon series. The first two monitors, now available in the United States, are the AG241QX and the AG241QG both featuring QHD resolution and a 1 ms response time.
The AG241QG sports a 165 Hz, NVIDIA G-Sync plus ULMB panel while the AG241QX features 144 Hz and Adaptive-Sync technology. Both monitors are best suited for highly competitive gamers, running at $549.99 and $399.99 respectively. Most notably, the AG241QX Adaptive-Sync model offers a Low Blue Light mode, reducing short wavelength blue light without sacrificing color quality to make viewing the screen a bit softer on the eyes.
Other gaming features of the AG241QX are the AOC Low Input Lag, AOC Shadow Control and the AOC Game Mode Presets on the special Qwick Switch KeyPad. The AOC Low Input Lag mode disables picture post-processing on the monitor’s electronics, which in turn accelerates the input from the mouse and keyboard to give quicker response times.
The AOC Shadow Control provides quick contrast adjustment for a better view when needed, which can be important depending upon the gameplay environment. Lastly, the AOC Settings KeyPad allows users to change between modes and adjust brightness, contrast and other settings to switch between saved presets and activate them when needed.
