AGON by AOC Announces QHD AGON PRO with Reflex, 300Hz Refresh-rate; Gaming Peripherals

One of the world's leading gaming monitor and IT accessories brands - AGON by AOC - is proud to announce the AGON PRO AG274QGM, the fastest mini LED monitor. The 68.6 cm (27") AG274QGM boasts an IPS panel with QHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels), a whopping 300 Hz refresh rate, NVIDIA G-SYNC ULTIMATE support and includes the NVIDIA Reflex Analyzer. Complementing this impressive monitor, AGON by AOC announces that the gaming mouse AOC GAMING GM510 now supports NVIDIA Reflex, too, which can be used together with the AG274QGM to give players accurate figures on their system latency. Gamers can now enter competitive matches knowing their latency is as low as it can be and their fast reflexes are not hindered by their equipment. Let's drop into the hot zone.

In the competitive environment of fast-paced games, where victory is measured in milliseconds, the stakes are sky-high and a single miscalculated aim or even a slight input lag can mean an early loss. Games using NVIDIA's Reflex API will reduce the input latency by dynamically synchronising Geforce GPUs with the CPU, so gamers can acquire targets faster, react quicker, and aim accurately. Furthermore, NVIDIA's Reflex Analyzer suite can work in tandem with the NVIDIA Reflex supported monitors and input devices, letting users see exactly what their total system latency is and allowing them to jump into games knowing their PC is operating at the lowest possible latency.

HP Announces the Omen 27i Monitor: 27" QHD, Nano IPS, 165 Hz, 1 ms, Adaptive Sync

HP today announced the Omen 27i monitor, which promises to deliver a well-rounded amount of features for a not bank-breaking price. The Omen 27i packs a 27" panel (as the name implies) of the Nano IPS type. HP says this means the panel covers a wider color gamut (the company claims a 98% DCI-P3 coverage. This Nano IPS panel is able to achieve 165 Hz refresh rates with a 1 ms response time. That, paired with Adaptive Sync (HP markets it simply as G-Sync compatible), means this is a pretty well-rounded gaming monitor. The 1000:1 contrast ratio, while not particularly impressive, isn't all that bad either. A maximum brightness set at 350 nits, however, means you can lay your HDR dreams to rest.

I/O-wise, we're looking at 1x HDMI 2.0, 1x DisplayPort 1.2, 2x USB 3.0 (upstream) and 1x USB 3.0 (downstream). There's an RGB-lighting diamond on the back of the unit, providing you with some amount of bling. The Omen 27i will be available for $499.

MSI Releases Optix G27C5 Curved Monitor: 27" VA, 1080p, 165 Hz, 1 ms, FreeSync, 1500R

MSI today announced the imminent release of their Optix G275C gaming monitor.

Maximum brightness is low - 250 nits, contrast ratio stands at 3000:1, and there's 90% coverage of the DCI-P3 (which increases to 113% in sRGB terms). The monitor also features an aggressive 1500R curvature.

There's 178º viewing angles, and I/O is taken care of by 1x DisplayPort 1.2, 2x HDMI and 1x audio out. Quality of life adjustments include only -5 to 20 ° tilt adjustments and a narrow frame design with 3 sides that suppresses the top / right / left bezel width.

LG Announces the UltraGear 27GN750 Monitor: 27" 1080p IPS, 240 Hz, 1 ms, VRR Support

LG today introduced their UltraGear 27GN750 monitor, which aims to bring high-speed, fluid gaming to a relatively low price-point. The 27GN750 is a flat monitor with a 27" diagonal, featuring an IPS panel and 1080p resolution. The gaming chops on this monitor are very much increased by the fact that it features a 240 Hz refresh rate with 1 ms response time. LG also touts VRR support in the form of G-SYNC Compatible certification (which means it employs VRR much like AMD first did through VRR instead of having to employ a dedicated module).

LG says this display is HDR compatible, but make no mistake, it's the lowest form supported (400 nits typical brightness with 320 nits as minimum according to LG), so that compatibility is... Arguable, to say the least. There's no VESA HDR 400 badge for a reason. Color reproduction is rated at 99% sRGB coverage (typical for an IPS panel). Connectivity-wise, we're looking at 1x DisplayPort, 2x HDMI, 1x USB 3.0 (upstream), 2x USB 3.0 (downstream) and 1x Headphone. LG quotes a Tilt / Height / Pivot Adjustable Stand. The LG UltraGear 27GN750 monitor is available for $399.

ASUS Launches Its ROG Bezel-Free Kits for Multi-monitor Configurations

Monitors being hailed as bezel-free is one of those gimmicks of which you know as soon as you read that listed feature. While some monitors carry bezels as thin as one can imagine, the fact of the matter is that there is always some extra material on the edges of the panel, which will always detract from a multi-monitor experience. Back in 2018, ASUS showcased a Bezel-free kit that would be available for sale. The workings are simple: align your monitors at a certain angle (130º is what ASUS recommends), use the transparent (PET + film) material on bezels that are less than 13 mm, attach the clips to the bottom and top of your monitors, and voila. By the miracle of refraction, your bezels will disappear, while your monitor's images will be extended, seamlessly transitioning between monitors.

This is an interesting solution, and certainly of value for gamers on multi-monitor systems. Keep in mind your screen diagonals will have to be smaller than 27" for this piece of technology to work. The ASUS ROG Bezel-Free Kit is now available at $110 a pop.

AOC Launches CQ27G2U and Q27G2U Monitors: 27" VA, 2560 x 1440, 144 Hz, 1 ms, FreeSync

AOC today launched two new interestingly specced and priced monitors. The CQ27G2U and Q27G2U are basically the same monitor with only one distinguishing feature: the CQ27G2U features a 1500R curved panel while the Q27G2U is a flat panel monitor. Apart from that, specs are identical between the two. There's a 27" VA panel with 2560 x 1440 (QHD) resolution; 144 Hz refresh rate and 1 ms response time. there's FreeSync support, albeit in a limited range of 48 Hz through 144 Hz, so these monitors won't really help you keep fluidity in lower frames per second.

Maximum brightness of the panels is pretty low at 250 nits, and color coverage is good enough for office work or gaming at 120% sRGB, 90% Adobe RGB and 85% NTSC coverage. Being a VA panel, contrast ratio stands at a respectable 3000:1. I/O is taken care of by 2x HDMI 2.0, 1x DisplayPort 1.2, and there's also a 4x USB 3.0 hub, Headphone out and 2x 2 W speakers also make an appearance. The non-curved Q27G2U will be available for $299, while its curved sibling, the CQ27G2U, will retail for $20 more at $319.

Philips Announces the 276C8 Monitor: 27" IPS, 2560 x 1440, 75 Hz, FreeSync, Ultra Wide-Color

MMD, brand license partner for Philips monitors, announces the launch of the Philips Moda 276C8 LCD monitor with USB-C. CrystalClear QHD 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution brings every image to life, while IPS panel technology offers wide viewing angles and high color accuracy.

This 75Hz 27" Quad HD monitor is equipped with and IPS panel. Built with virtually no surrounding frame, its edgeless Zero Bezel look is not only aesthetically attractive but offers the advantage of a more expansive picture and a larger workspace while facilitating seamless tiling for multi-monitor setups. The monitor is also incredibly slim, measuring a mere 6.1 mm and presenting an attractive contemporary appearance that complements all manner of work and living spaces. The monitor's thin, stylish panel and geometric stand design earned it a 2018 Red Dot Design Award, which recognizes the best in design and business.

AOC Launches the AG273QX Gaming Monitor: 27" VA, 2560 x 1440, 165 Hz, FreeSync 2, HDR 400

AOC today launched the AG273QX, a flat panel gaming monitor (meaning there is no curve, which makes sense due to the usual 16:9 aspect ratio). The AG273QX sports a 27" diagonal with a VA panel, sporting a resolution of 2560 x 1440 and a 165 Hz refresh rate. This refresh rate is mated with support for AMD's FreeSync 2, which makes an appearance due to this monitor also being HDR capable - though at the lowest end of the spectrum, with its HDR 400 certification. With its 1 ms response time, this monitor seems to have all the claims to fame. Sadly, it only sticks to the Adobe sRGB color space with 99% coverage - no DCIP-3 here.

FreeSync 2 HDR means this monitor supports low-latency HDR tone mapping, and LFC (Low Framerate Compensation). AOC are pushing this as a 3-side frameless design, which means that the display should go all the way towards the bezels. If you want to carry this monitor to LAN parties, there's a carrying handle, and the monitor also sports double headset holders in the design. There's an RGB lighting ring on the back of the panel. Connectivity-wise this monitor sports a 4x USB 3.0 HUB, 1x Headphone out, and video inputs are taken care of by 1x VGA, 1x DisplayPort 1.2, and  1x HDMI 2.0. The AOC AGON AG273QX will be available in November 2019 at an MSRP of £439 / €489.

Razer Announces Raptor Monitor: 27" IPS, 2560 x 1440, 144 Hz, HDR 400, AMD FreeSync

Razer announced their intro into the monitor market with the Raptor. The Raptor is a 27" diagonal monitor sporting an IPS panel with a 2560 x 1440 resolution. That many pixels tick along at a rate of 144 Hz and 1 ms response time - which is made fluid and jitter-free with recourse to AMD's FreeSync. Additionally, the panel sports the lowest available HDR certification in the form of HDR 400, with brightness levels of 420 nits.

Razer is quoting a 95% coverage of the DCI-P3 color gamut on the "edge-to-edge" monitor. The Raptor also features support for Razer's Chroma and a RGB LED on the base of the aluminium stand, which incorporates a built-in CNC cable management solution running through the back. The Razer Raptor can now be pre-purchased for $699.

AOC Launches the CQ27G1 Monitor: 27" VA, 2560 x 1440, 144Hz, 1 ms, FreeSync for $279

AOC has added to their CQ lineup of gaming monitors with a 27" option. The CQ27G1 features a 27", curved diagonal (1800R). The VA panel has a 2560 x 1440 pixel density, a 144 Hz refresh rate with 1 ms response time, and FreeSync support (of which the ranges haven't been disclosed). The 250 nits peak brightness won't win any awards, and might be an issue in direct sunlight scenarios, but will be adequate in most situations. The 3000:1 contrast ratio isn't anything to write home about, but it isn't terrible, either.

To keep pricing as low as it is, AOC wisely decided to cut the speakers and USB hub from this monitor, and reduced connectivity options. Available are 1x DisplayPort, 2x HDMI 2.0, and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. The stand features height (±130 mm), tilt (-4° ~ +21.5°), and swivel (±34°) adjustments, and 100 x 100 VESA mounting holes. The AOC CQ27G1 will be available from the usual parties for $279, which seems a legitimate ask for such a monitor.

ASUS Announces Mini-LED Powered ROG Swift PG27UQX G-Sync Ultimate Monitor

ASUS in partnership with NVIDIA announced at COMPUTEX 2019 their first Mini-LED powered PC monitor, which promises to bring the dimming zone game up to an unprecedented level - at least, on IPS technology. The usage of Mini-LED as lighting source for the ROG Swift PG27UQX means that there are many more areas that can be dimmed and brightened according to the displayed content: 576 of them, really, with each being comprised of mini LEDs that are a mere 200-300 micrometers in size.

The ROG Swift PG27UQX features a 27" panel with HDR support (HDR 1000 certification with up to 1,000 nits brightness). It's overclockable to a 144 Hz refresh rate, and color-wise offers DCI-P3 97% and Adobe RGB with quantum-dot technology for 99% coverage. ASUS says that the local dimming capabilities also allow for lower energy consumption (which does make sense). Connector-wise, we're looking at DisplayPort v1.4, HDMI (v2.0), 3x USB 3.0 and 1x 3.5 mm earphone jack. Being a G-Sync Ultimate panel, it features NVIDIA's latest G-Sync processor, which should bringing pricing to even higher levels than you are already expecting.

Acer Announces XZ1-Series of FreeSync, Curved Gaming Monitors - VA WQHD, 144 Hz, HDR10 Ready

Acer has announced two incoming budget-yet-premium gaming monitors to power AMD's FreeSync-supporting graphics cards. The new XZ1 series will come in 27" (XZ271U) and 31.5" (XZ321QU), thus appealing to two different market segments. The new monitors both sport a 144 Hz, 1 ms, 16:9 VA panel with WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution. Both are curved affairs; contrast stands at 3000:1; color coverage is at 85% of the NTSC color-space; and we're saying they are HDR10 ready because with their maximum brightness of 250 and 300 cd/m², respectively, they'll never be able to showcase the tiniest amount of HDR10 detail. Like the initial HD ready TVs which only supported 720p resolution but could process higher-density images, so does this HDR10 badge not mean there's an actual ability to properly display HDR10 content as it was meant to be.

Connectivity stands at 1x DisplayPort 1.2, 1x mini DisplayPort 1.2, and 2x HDMI 2.0 headers. There are two 7 W stereo speakers and a headphone jack in each monitor, as well as a quad-port USB 3.0 Type-A hub. The stands can tilt between -5 to 25 degrees, swivel +/- 25 degrees, and provide height adjustments of up to 120 mm. Both panels can now be purchased at Amazon.com, with pricing set at $527 and $550 respectively (not final retail pricing for the Americas).
