AOC Speeds Up Gaming with the g2460Pg 24-Inch G-SYNC Monitor

With the g2460Pg, display specialist AOC introduces a new premium gaming monitor with an impressive array of high-end technological features for a true state-of-the-art gaming experience. Thanks to the integrated NVIDIA G-SYNC technology, the AOC g2460Pg immerses the player into intense gaming action without lag, as control inputs are reflected on-screen instantly.

An ultra-smooth refresh rate of 144 Hz, an outstanding response time of only 1 ms and super-fast DisplayPort input enhance the experience even further, effectively eliminating motion blur and screen tearing. In order to create a perfect environment for gamers, the g2460Pg boasts a Full HD widescreen TN panel with the ideal gaming size of 24" (61 cm).

Smooth images for smooth action
Just as the award-winning g2460Pqu myUltraSpeed, the new g2460Pg from AOC's Style Line boasts an extensive array of impressive specs in order to offer a true state-of-the-art gaming experience. The extremely short response time of just 1 ms effectively eliminates ghosting effects, guaranteeing crisp and clear images even in the most intense in-game situations. This way, the player is left without the distraction of motion blur, and can fully focus on the action. This competitive advantage over other players is even enhanced by the outstandingly quick refresh rate of 144 Hz. The g2460Pg redraws the screen more than twice as fast as conventional 60 Hz displays, making eye fatigue and screen tearing problems of the past. Gone are the days of missed targets because of stuttering images that can occur on monitors with low refresh rates. In addition, the integrated DisplayPort connector is the ideal input option for fast and seamless image transmission. Not only do the in-game environments come to life in one super-smooth movement, but also at a 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution and in vibrant, bright colours, thanks to a luminosity of 350 cd/cm².

Lag-free gaming with NVIDIA G-SYNC
To immerse the player even more into the game, the g2460Pg boasts the innovative new G-SYNC technology from expert graphics card manufacturer NVIDIA. The G-SYNC module built into the monitor takes gaming to a new level by synchronising the display refresh rates to the graphics card's GPU. This way, nothing comes between the player and the game anymore, as control inputs are reflected immediately on-screen, creating a true real-time experience with no lag.

Creating the perfect gaming desktop
Eliminating distractions is key to succeed in any game. A desktop cluttered with cables can distract the player and compromise the immersion into the game world. The g2460Pg takes care of this issue, with a nifty cable guide on the stand. A wide array of ergonomic options such as tilt, swivel, height-adjustment and pivot empower gamers to adapt the monitor to their individual needs. The screen size of 24" (61 cm) is ideal for hard-core gamers used to sitting close to the screen during extended play sessions. In addition, the integrated USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports allow for fast data transfer, charging mobile devices or other tasks.

Easy on the eyes, easy on the environment
The g2460Pg's impressive performance does not come at the cost of sustainability. It comes with the intelligent software solutions Eco Mode and e-Saver to drive down energy consumption. The display also fulfills strict regulations such as EnergyStar 6.0 and TCO 6.0. As with all of its monitors, AOC offers a 3 year warranty with on-site exchange service.

Am I the only one who thinks it is lame that Nvidia sticks to their 1x DP, 1x HDMI and 2x DVI setup on gfx cards? Since the new tech like G-Sync is only available through DP, meaning multimonitor users needs multiple gfx cards to make use of G-Sync on all monitors. That is assuming that adapter cables do not work with G-Sync.

GSYNC FTW!!!!!!!!!!
As long as you like paying such a premium for it, sure, knock yourself out.

What's the use of it on a 1080p 144Hz screen anyway? Put it on a 1440p monitor.

This. 1440p GSync is where I see this tech being really beneficial.

You are entirely correct. WQHD monitors are the exact kind of monitors that need GSync, however nobody does it because it would be impossible to market a product that would be so horrendously overpriced, profit margins would be huge, but nobody would buy it because of the price. If a 1080p TN panel @ 144hz costs £370 with GSync, imagine what an IPS panel @ 1440p would cost. Nobody would buy it, simply because it would inevitably be a ripoff.
That and not many gamers have hardware that can run 1440p @45-60FPS anyway.

At least it cost half of a 27/28 inch G-Sync Monitor.

But i like the fact that you can find a 24" G-Sync monitor.

1080p like said before is worthless for G-Sync.

1440p@144Hz with G-Spot for less than 400$ and we're in business.

I'd pay premium for it. Hell I'm waiting for this to happen so soo much. If they'd issue SKU for 1000$ I'd be the first one to get it.

Yes it's called the ROG swift 144hz Gsync enabled 1440p monitor.

It's TN isn't it? Wish it was IPS. How does the ROG Swift compare to say the BENQ gaming monitors?

Yep. Sadly you're 100% correct at it being overpriced. If only the vendors would release something decent at a decent price. I'm sure they'd still have big profit margins, but not as big as they'd like so they won't release it. Little do they realise is that if they released it, maybe more people buying it would offset the smaller profit margin.

Question guys

Why are some of you saying that G-Sync is worthless for 1080p? Why is it perfect for 1440p?

I'd agree and disagree. It does have it's place at 1080p for those with lower end systems, but the main benefit will be at resolutions higher than 1080p as the amount of pixels being pushed is so high and keeping a high/decent frame rate gets harder so GSync's benefits would be greater but it's not a complete waste at 1080p. That's just my opinion though.

I'll have to wait to buy into this. I like the looks of it, but being on a retirement income is very limiting.
