AOC Introduces New G1 Series Curved Gaming Monitors

AOC, a worldwide leader in monitor display technology, today announces the new G1 Series of curved gaming monitors. This affordable line of gaming monitors packs powerful gaming specifications in an understated design with incredibly thin bezels, making them a perfect fit for the ultimate battle station. The G1 series is made up of four monitors - a 32-inch QHD (CQ32G1), 32-inch (C32G1), 27-inch (C27G1) and 24-inch (C24G1). The G1 series is available now starting at $229.99.

The G1 series provides an immersive gaming experience with its Full HD (QHD for the CQ32G1) resolution and 1800R (1500R for the C24G1) curved design. Additionally, it provides smooth and fluid gameplay with a 144Hz refresh rate, AMD FreeSync and a 1ms MPRT response time. With a 144Hz frame rate, every frame is rendered sharply and in smooth succession, so users can line up their shots accurately and can appreciate high-speed races in all their glory.
Multi-monitor set ups have become commonplace in not only productivity set ups, but in gaming battlestations as well. The frameless curved design results in thin bezels around the top and sides of the monitors for enhanced immersion. Multiple monitor setups are ideal for an immersive widescreen experience, streaming on Twitch or watching a favorite stream while gaming.

The monitors also utilize AOC's FlickerFree technology. Eye comfort is one of the most important considerations for outlasting the competition, and since these displays are designed specifically for the competitive gamer, they feature eye-protecting AOC Flicker-Free Technology to reduce eye strain, discomfort, and fatigue during long gaming sessions.

The C27G1 is available now at Newegg for $$279.99. The C24G1, C32G1 and CQ32G1 will be available later this year for $229.99, $299.99 and $399.99 respectively.

A 24" curved screen makes very little sense, if at all.

I'd really like to try a curved display for a while. See how's the feeling.

You can set in-game FOV to > 90 degrees and get a good sense of the twisted geometry that way ;)

Curved only really makes sense for an ultrawide to be honest - and having said that, why would one still accept those two bezels as they show on the picture with 3 screens side by side when ultrawides exist...

A TN panel on anything above 24" is a bit retarded. At those sizes you can see the bloody colour shift just by looking up and down a bit...

That was not there when I posted. Got a lot of AOC results, but not that one.

@Caring1 Thanks for the link.

I think a flat panel display w/two flanking curved displays could look pretty good and you could go ultra wide on the curved displays or the flat display to taste. I'd probably do a ultra wide front and center with two curved non ultra wide's flanking it. You could do vice versa though as well if you wanted it to wrap more, but I'd think it less ideal.
