AOC Releases the AGON AG353UCG Monitor: 35" VA, 3440 x 1440 UWQHD, Quantum Dot, 200 Hz, DisplayHDR 1000, G-Sync Ultimate, 1800R

AOC launches the 35" (88.98 cm) AGON AG353UCG with 200 Hz refresh rate, 2 ms GtG response time, 3440 x 1440 UWQHD (21:9) resolution, VESA DisplayHDR 1000 and Nvidia G-Sync Ultimate.

Its native 3440 x 1440 UWQHD (21:9) resolution combined with the 1800R curvature creates the next level of immersion. The AG353UCG's visuals pop thanks to Quantum Dot technology, 1000 nits peak brightness with VESA DisplayHDR 1000, 2500:1 contrast and 90% DCI-P3 coverage. Finally, the monitor supports Nvidia G-Sync Ultimate, offering HDR with 1000 nits brightness, at the same time eliminating stutter, tearing and reducing latency.
The monitor inherited its 3-sides-frameless design, the ring-shaped RGB-lighting on the back and the red/V-shaped stand from its sibling AG273QCG, which won the "Red Dot Design Award 2018". With red/black accents, the height-adjustable (120 mm) V-shaped stand is stylish and compact, yet also sturdy and leaves ample room on the desk. The height of the display panel is similar to 28" 16:9 displays, but it provides more horizontal screen real estate thanks to its 21:9 aspect ratio. Therefore, it is comfortable to use while delivering an unforgettable viewing experience. Its huge 35" screen size is not only highly immersive in games and anamorphic/ultra-wide movies - it also boosts productivity. A pleasant side effect that can especially benefit content creators or live streamers.
Ready to compete
Upgrading to an AG353UCG means an investment for all kinds of video game genres. The 200 Hz refresh rate provides competitive-level speed not only for racing, sim, action, MMORPG, or 5v5 arena games, but even for the competitive FPS player. The transition times of the individual pixels are so low that they allow the panel to display 200 frames per second without artefacts. With the AG353UCG's 2 ms GtG response time, motion blur is virtually eliminated. Thus, by receiving an immediate visual feedback of their fast inputs, gamers feel "connected" to the game world unlike ever before.
Extraordinary game visuals
Being one of the fastest displays is no easy feat, but having an impressive image quality at the same time is a totally different matter. The AG353UCG's VA panel employs Quantum Dot technology, which enables it to offer 90% DCI-P3 coverage, a significantly larger colour space than the standard sRGB gamut. Its 10-bit panel also produces 1.07 billion colours, which means more subtle colour transitions and more accurate colours designed for HDR (High Dynamic Range) content. The AG353UCG can accurately display HDR in games, using G-Sync Ultimate with minimal input lag and also HDR in movies/TV shows, supporting VESA DisplayHDR 1000. Its dynamic range spans from 0.05 nits in black levels, to 1000 nits in peak brightness areas. Thanks to its VA panel, the monitor is capable of a 2500:1 static contrast ratio as well, twice as high as common IPS or TN panels. Moreover, its 512 local dimming zones deliver an incredibly wide dynamic range.

Extras included
The AG353UCG is not only a highlight with regard to its technical features but also provides for user comfort. The redesigned, modern OSD (On-screen display) can comfortably be navigated via the 5-way joystick in the bottom bezel. Storing a headset is now even more convenient with the headset holder from previous models now sitting on both the left and right sides. The monitor can easily be attached with one click-motion to its elegant, metal stand or to a VESA mount. Not only does the stand provide stability, it also offers a carrying handle, cable management, and ergonomic adjustments in height (120 mm) and tilt. With AOC Light FX (customisable ring-shaped RGB lights on the back side), the monitor can be adjusted to match every gamers' unique preferences. To cater for an easy set-up, all cables necessary to hook it up to a computer (DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0) are included in the box.

The AOC AGON AG353UCG will be available in Europe in February 2020 with an RRP of £2159, which is 2599 EUR and 2789 USD.

Sure buddy. Which ultrawide with HDR 1000, 512 dimming zones, 200Hz, true 10bit panel with 90% DCI-P3 coverage can you buy with 500$? Cut the crap.

I've not seen 1000 nits anything...I bet this is so good it makes good stuff look bad...from lack of detail from creation...cause it's so good.

It’s well known that PC monitors are severely overpriced. Good thing TVs are starting to reach gaming monitor level of features and sub 5ms input lag. Any LCD monitor that cost more than the 48 inch LG OLED is dead in arrival.

I can get a system with an R9 3900X, a high end X570 board, 240mm AIO CLC, 32GB RAM with RGB, an RTX2080 Super, a 1TB M.2 PCIe SSD gen4 drive, a decent ATX mid-tower casing, beefy 80+ Gold PSU, dual ultrawide 1080p IPS monitors, a mechanical keyboard, mouse & a 2.1ch speaker while have some change for a McD/Subway meal. That's money well spent than a single monitor IMO.

Ok...then get that? not every product is made for every person.

Nice monitor, but the price is too high. Next year you can buy the same specs for less than half the price.
I'd wait.

All those nice specs and then it turns to crap when you read its a VA panel.

A turd rolled in glitter, is still a turd.

Well it does surprise me that this panel is still only capable of 2500:1 static contrast, which is the numero uno important metric to pick a VA. Its the new standard and it kinda sucks tbh. Great 1000 nits, but with 2500:1 static your VAs deep blacks are definitely gone.

I don't doubt the overall picture is good. But this is not some super special panel or anything, its mostly a special backlight and stuff around it.

In 2014 I bought a VA with 5000:1 static and strobe... the only meaningful difference to this one is really the resolution and peak brightness; well and color space, but who gives a shit if you're gaming. Bought mine for 400 or so bucks...

Given that this has more than just a single DP input, does it use the new gerenation of G-sync controller board that also supports VESA AS/FreeSync? Would be very nice to have that confirmed (even if this is far too expensive for me).

But the real question is "Does it have a build in FAN?" There are no info on the web.

The Acer Predator x35 and Asus PG35QV has a build in fan that is very annoying.

Yeah, thanks, AOC, keep it to yourself.

And cool that it beats 65" LG OLED at price. Very impressive.

Given that it includes more ports than just a DP it must use the new generation of G-sync controller (the old one only supported the one input) and should then support FreeSync/VESA Adaptive Sync too. I've been asking though, and I can't find confirmation anywhere - but the controller should support it natively. I guess it might be possible to disable it, though that would be a very odd thing to do.

Then it should, perhaps, be labeled as such.

That is kind of what I was saying, no? In trying to get confirmation of whether this was true?

No nvidia chips are needed to support standard VRR tech.

Needed? Of course not. Did I somehow imply that? What I'm saying is quite the opposite: that Nvidia's G-sync controllers should finally start supporting the open standards too.

Why not just wait and get a next gen console? Way cheaper and better games.
