PC Monitors

AOC has announced and released two new WQHD monitors – the AG241QG and the AG241QX. Both monitors have a 23.8” screen with native WQHD resolution, and they both come from their new AGON gaming screen range.

The QG model comes with a 30-165Hz variable refresh rate, ideal for heavy gamers. It also has G-SYNC support, delivering the fastest and smoothest gaming experience, according to NVIDIA. G-SYNC synchronizes display refresh rates with the computer’s GPU, avoiding screen tearing and stopping input lag and general screen stutter.

The QX model, however, will feature a 30-144Hz variable refresh rate, which is still great, but just not quite as wide as the QG offering. It will also come with Adaptive-Sync technology.

These two new models aren’t actually all that new – we’ve seen them before. However, it’s only now that we have full specifications released by AOX. The monitors will be available from this week, and AOC has confirmed that they are both TN-based, and as standard, come with a 1000:1 static contrast ratio.

Both models also offer a 1 millisecond grey-to-grey response time, and if you pick up the QX variant, you’ll be able to enjoy Low Blue Light settings. The QG, however, offers Ultra Low Motion Blur.

If you’re planning on putting your monitor on a wall, both have 100 x 100mm VESA mounting on the pack.

In terms of connectivity, we’re looking at a 1.2 DisplayPort, HDMI connections, a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack, as well as 4x USB 3.0 ports.
