AOC Launches 43-inch 4K 144 Hz HDR 1000 Gaming Display

The large screen gaming market has grown by yet another model in the shape of the AOC G4309VX/D, which is built around a 43-inch VA panel with a resolution of 3840 x 2160. The display is rated at HDR 1000, although the peak SDR brightness lands at 720 cd/m², which is still very bright considering the size of the display.

The refresh rate tops out at 144 Hz and the response time is said to be 1 ms, via the DP 1.4 port using DSC or the two HDMI 2.1 ports. There's support for adaptive sync and motion blur reduction, which should make this a good choice for both PC and console gaming. The G4309VX/D also features four USB 3.0 ports, or USB 3.2 gen 1 if you prefer. It should be noted that there appears to be two different versions of this display, with the G4309VX currently selling for around US$1,300 in Taiwan, but it lacks HDMI 2.1, although the rest of the spec appears to be near identical. No word on pricing for the G4309VX/D as yet, but we'd expect it to end up in a similar price bracket.

1000 nits VA.

Oh black, I love how gray you look today. Allow me to burn your retinas out so you'll get black eventually.

We can thank VESA for this nonsense

no idea how 'nits' came to be a unit of measure, after all, nits is also known as a herd of nitwits. :p

This should have been a 21:9 ratio monitor imo... If is for "gaming" or "multimedia" ;)

Why do you think the 3090 supports SLI?

yep this craze for brightness i guess people want monitors to look like in showroom, my monitor doesnt even have 400 brightness and i still only run it at 21% so i get decent darks and dont excessively stress eyes.

VA gives the perfect blacks, maybe only OLED gives them too but OLED has other drawbacks.

This is a very very large screen size for gaming purposes, unless you would connect it to a console and use it as a TV replacement..

IPS is what gives dull greys as blacks imitation. VA is much better.

VA's black point rises along with the brightness you put in just as well though. Black is hard. Anything with a backlight will show black's not black, even if the black point is 3x lower than IPS.

Unless the VA screen has local dimming in micro zones. Which would allow it to have close to infinite contrast ratio.

My handy guide on display tech:

OLED for the wealthy non-competitive fps gamer who can afford a new monitor whenever burn in strikes every couple years or so and wants good color and the best contrast/black levels.

IPS for great color and good response times and people who don't care that black is gray and that one corner of the screen is probably a lot lighter than the rest (can you tell I'm biased?).

VA for high contrast, deep blacks and good response times, sometimes rivaling IPS.

TN for fps/moba players on adderall who don't care what the picture looks like.

You can upscale 1080p to 4k on AMD cards.

At least 2k 165 is finally going to have a worth upgrade option!

Why only AMD? Nvidia has their new image scaling feature too



What the heck is a BGR panel?

Last i heard it did not work to well, never looked in to on the nVidia side so i said AMD as i know it works.

2 colors switched but you know this already ?, my LG panel is the same.

Nothing gives perfect blacks, not even the OLEDs. I guess depending on your budget IPS/VA/TN are all good enough. The more informed users sometimes give too much credence to numbers, when most normal ones don't give two hoots about them.

This sort of thing would interest me, but I've already treated myself to a Samsung QN90A, it's a Mini LED monster and I love it.

Contrast ratio is defined by the light emitted by the display at the pixel, and in that way OLEDs are indeed perfect. You can't get better than zero.

Even uninformed users will start to notice VA/IPS bleedthrough when approaching 1000 nits, I assure you.

The point is fine wrt contrast ratio, though only perfect black bodies have perfect blacks ~
NATIVE BLACK UNIFORMITY STD. DEV.
We also calculate the standard deviation of the color values of the pixels from the picture taken in the test above. This is done so that we can objectively score the TV's uniformity, rather than needing to rely on our subjective opinions of each TV. This is a bit less useful for people who want an idea of what black uniformity looks like, but is necessary for us to be able to assign a fair score.


To score the TV's clouding and flashlighting issues objectively, we process the test photo and calculate the standard deviation of the pixels in the picture. The result is a number that corresponds to how uniform the blacks are. A value of 0 means it's perfect. The greater the number, the more the blacks vary.

LED VS. OLED BLACK UNIFORMITY
LED-backlit LCD TVs are prone to black uniformity issues, but OLED TVs can produce virtually perfect blacks because their pixels are self-emitting, and therefore don't have the same limitations caused by improper backlight implementation. That means they don't suffer from clouding or flashlighting as LED TVs do.

Still not perfect blacks.
