AOC Expands Their Mainstream Gaming Monitor Line-Up with New Frameless Models

Display specialist AOC today introduces three new gaming monitors which extend their successful mainstream gaming line represented by the well-received G2460PF and G2460VQ6. In addition to their appealing "3-sided frameless" design, the new G90 series boasts an impressive set of specs and features, guaranteeing a top-notch gaming experience: A refresh rate of 144 Hz and AMD FreeSync technology provide smooth gameplay without stuttering, tearing or motion blur, and a 1 ms response time eliminates ghosting effects. The new G90 displays offer AOC Low Input Lag Mode and AOC Shadow Control as well as a handy stand that can be easily mounted and removed without screws - perfect for LAN parties and esports tournaments!

Top-notch gaming performance
AOC's G90 series offers models in two sizes: the 24.5" AOC G2590VXQ and AOC G2590PX as well as the 27" AOC G2790PX. All of them feature a frameless 16:9 Full HD TN panel (1920 x 1080 pixels), a short 1 ms response time to eliminate annoying ghosting effects, a high refresh rate (G2590PX and G2790PX: 144 Hz, G2590VXQ: 75 Hz) and FreeSync support. The latter reduces stuttering, tearing and input lag for an even smoother gaming experience. The AOC Low Input Lag Mode gives gamers an additional edge: it bypasses most of the monitor's internal video processing, which results in even more responsive gameplay. Titles with a very dark map design especially benefit from the AOC Shadow Control feature: it lightens overly dark screen areas and darkens bright parts without affecting the rest of the screen.
Slick design, convenient features
With their simplistic "3-sided frameless" design, the G90 monitors are not only a pleasure to look at. They also let players focus on the game, allowing seamless 3-monitor set-ups for next-level immersion. To protect players' eyes throughout long gaming hours, the G90 series offers AOC Flicker Free technology against eye fatigue and the AOC Low Blue Light Mode against potential long-term effects from harmful blue light. For a healthy posture while playing, the G2590PX and G2790PX also come with an ergonomic monitor stand which can be adjusted in height, swiveled, tilted and rotated (pivot). For a fast and easy setup at LAN parties, esports tournaments and other gaming events, the stands of all G90 models can be mounted and removed within seconds - without using a screwdriver. Thanks to built-in stereo speakers, users can enjoy games and entertainment without additional speaker or headphone solutions.

A variety of connectors such as DisplayPort, HDMI, VGA and USB 3.0 (G2590PX and G2790PX) makes the G90 monitors compatible with a broad range of input sources and devices.

The AOC G2790PX is already in stores as of December 2017, followed by the AOC G2590VXQ in January 2018 and the AOC G2590PX in February 2018. The MSRPs are £309, £159 and £249 respectively.

Cheap to produce and easy to convince people that high refresh rates are really expensive to implement, you need 4 gold bars, two diamonds and some fairies to make it happen; and they seem to prefer TN panels.

Want some extra software with that ripoff, sir?

Because not everybody needs a stupid resolution like 1440p and most systems struggle with 4K. I still have a 1080p screen and when I will change it I will go directly to 4K. 1440p is just stupid, it cannot display 1080p or 4K pixel by pixel so all video content will look bad on it and the extra pixels it has don't make games look that much better. It's the classic case of: jack of all trades, master of none...

The general public use 1080p. In order to go 1440p you need at least a Nvidia 1070/AMD Vega and if you want 4k, you need most likely a 1080 TI or xP / Nothing from AMD. Most people will not spend 700+ on a graphics card.

Katanai is correct, 1440p is a "weird" resolution and most manufacturers will go from 1080p to 4k. It's not pixel for pixel because 1440p would scale from 720p, but most broadcasts are 1080p and would scale up to 4k.

I myself run a 1440p monitor for PC and have 4k for TV. IMO, a 27 inch monitor looks better on 1440p than 1080p as the screen is so big that I feel its almost pixelated. I haven't been on 1080p since 2014. I'm spoiled though :D

We need more affordable 144Hz 1080P monitors too.
4K is unnecessary if your a competitive gamer but high refresh rate matters.

sub 200 IMO is affordable for a monitor :D Acer is selling their 144 Hz for $191 (Amazon US Prime) as of this post.

What I want to know is the difference between 144 Hz and 240 Hz I'm seeing now. going from 60/75 to 144 Hz was a big jump for FPS games, but 144 to 240...? Will it make that much of a difference to justify the purchase over a 144 Hz?

You won't see that much of a difference, getting over 100 Hz is where the big jump is. Still, there is a difference, if you play let's say CS:GO and run it capped at 240 fps on a 240 Hz screen it will be superiour to any 144 Hz setup. For other, more modern games, the problem is getting that much fps. If your system can do it more often than not then 240 Hz is good...
