AOC Announces New Curved AGON HDR Gaming Monitor with AMD FreeSync2

AOC, a worldwide leader in monitor display technology, today announces the first member of the premium AGON monitor line with HDR support, the AG322QC4 gaming monitor. The AG322QC4 is a curved 32-inch, QHD HDR gaming monitor with a refresh rate of 144Hz, 4ms response time and AMD's FreeSync2 technology. FreeSync2 is AMD's HDR-compatible technology. This monitor is made for enthusiast gamers, who want both high-performance visuals without stutter, screen tearing or motion blur, and a gorgeous visual experience with HDR. This is AOC's first monitor with Display HDR400 certification.

The 32-inch monitor features a 2560 x 1440 QHD screen with a 1800R curve. The curved VA panel offers vibrant colors with high dynamic range for a more exciting and immersive visual experience to be enjoyed while gaming. The display also covers 85 percent of the NTSC. The AG322QC4's curve conforms to the way the eye sees and helps reduce eye fatigue.
The display features AMD FreeSync2 technology to provide a smooth, fast and visually stunning gaming experience, with support for HDR visuals. FreeSync2 synchronizes the display's refresh rates to the GPU in gamers' AMD-powered PCs to eliminate screen-tearing and minimize display stutter and input lag. This results in fluid and responsive gameplay, with objects appearing sharper, scenes appearing instantly and more vibrant in visual quality than on other monitors. AMD FreeSync2 delivers a smooth and fast gaming experience with a serious competitive edge.

The new AGON monitor also packs in additional AOC monitor technologies such as Shadow Control, AOC's FlickerFree technology and LowBlue Mode. With AOC's Shadow Control, gamers can adjust shadow levels in the on-screen display menu to increase contrast for better dark areas without affecting the rest of the screen. Eye comfort is one of the most important considerations for outlasting the competition, and since the AGON 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 AG322QC4 goes even further with its Low Blue Light mode, reducing adverse short wavelength blue light without sacrificing color quality.

The AG322QC4 is now available at Amazon and Newegg for $549.99.

So many Freesync monitors for so few AMD GPUs worth buying.

maybe I'm missing something here, but what's the antenna for, or whatever that little thing is that sticks out from the right side ?

I did not see anything in the OP about wireless capabilities....

My guess would be it's a built in hanger for headphones/headsets.

this does look like it will be a great monitor. i won't be doing my ultimate build until both 7nm AMD cpu and GPU are out though. winter 2019 prob, and hopefully we will have some HDR600 for around $700 around then... I really wish we could get some 90hz 4k 32" as well, I don't care about more than 90hz, its the sweet spot imo, but sadly these companies have an all or nothing mindset

My current monitor has a 35-90 Freesync range now and yes it’s perfect for Vega 64 at 1440p but games like Fallout 4 absolutely hate 90...

Do you have an AMD GPU to support your opinion?

What there are some great AMD options especially for 1440p

RX 570
RX 580
R9 Fury
Vega 56
Vega 64

all can easily handle 1440p while supporting freeync
