The world's number one gaming monitor and IT accessories brand AOC is relaunching its gaming portfolio, from monitors to headsets, mechanical keyboards, mice, mouse mats and more for gamers of all levels, under its new umbrella AGON by AOC.

With their 32:9 aspect ratio, the AG493UCX2 virtually combines two 27" QHD displays in one seamless panel with DQHD (5120 x 1440) resolution and the AG493QCX does the same for two 27" Full HD displays with DFHD (3840 x 1080) resolution.

Philips Announces 49" 165 Hz 498P9Z Monitor

This SuperWide 49" screen, with its 5120 x 1440 resolution, is designed to replace multi-monitor setups for a truly wide view with a 32:9 aspect ratio. It feels just like having two 27" 16:9 QuadHD (2560 x 1440) displays side-by-side. Any professional will be amazed by the extra screen real estate by upgrading to a 49" monitor: spreadsheets become fully visible, while video makers and programmers can keep an eye on the previews and timelines at the same time. The screen's 1800R curve ensures a more immersive and comfortable experience, mirroring the natural field of view and reducing glare and distortion. Architects, graphic designers, video makers, programmers and those working in finance all need space that allows multiple program windows to be visible at the same time, supporting their creativity and boosting their productivity - but this screen is certain to impress any user.

Thanks to its 165 Hz refresh rate, the Philips 498P9Z is not only a workhorse, but a dream-machine for gaming. With its VESA-certified DisplayHDR 400 support it delivers a significant step up from normal SDR displays, producing astonishing brightness, contrast and colours.

Any media displayed on the screen is enhanced and delivered at its best, and the monitor can also easily support casual gaming sessions, a few battle royale rounds, a short take-off and landing in a flight simulator, or a couple of laps of rallying in between.

Samsung Updating Odyssey G9 Premium Gaming Monitor - MiniLED Technology, First DisplayHDR 2000 Certification?

A listing has surfaced on Chinese website Taobao featuring what is being described as the 2021 update for the ultra-premium Samsung Odyssey G9 gaming monitor. It keeps the DNA of the Odyssey G9 - that means the 49" VA panel, 5120×1440 resolution and 1000R curvature remain. The devil, as always, is in the details; the new monitor is expected to feature a MiniLED backlight solution featuring 2048 dimming zones, which should enable a contrast ratio of 4,000:1 and an eventual, first-of-its-kind DisplayHDR 2000 certification by VESA. The current maximum under the standard stands at DisplayHDR 1400, so it's quite the jump for maximum HDR quality.

New Philips 49" SuperWide Dual Quad HD Curved Monitor Debuts at CES 2019

Today EPI, the brand license partner for Philips displays and audio, announces two new high-performance monitors to add to its Philips Brilliance Collection.

ASUS Showcases the XG49VQ: 49", 32:9, 3840 x 1080, 144Hz, HDR, FreeSync 2

ASUS showcased their XG49VQ, a behemoth of a monitor with a 49" diagonal across a 32:9 aspect ratio panel. This aspect ratio and the panels' size are married to a 3840 x 1080 resolution (2x 1080p) with a 144 Hz refresh rate. There's a 1800R curvature (which is likely essential in such wide panels), support for Freesync 2, 125% RGB coverage, and ASUS' Shadow Boost feature which makes it easier to spot anything in darker corners of any given game. There's HDR support via VESA's HDR400 certification.

With those features, ASUS is catering to two markets at once: professional and gamer. The added resolution and screen real-estate will feel right at home with users that do much horizontal work (my 2560 x 1080 panel is already plenty enough for two pages to sit comfortably side to side). The increased frequency response won't do much for professional work, but does tick one of those gaming checklists of late. With the specs and exotic streak on this monitor, though, don't expect pricing to come cheap.

Acer Announces 49", 55" Gaming Monitors - 4K, HDR, IPS

Acer today at its japan-specific news page revealed the launch of two new desktop monitors that really do defy convention on the real-estate that you can have plopped right in front of your eyes. The new 49" EB490QKbmiiipfx and 55" EB550Kbmiiipx displays (ehrm... a little more attention to the naming convention, Acer?) deliver what's expected to be a sub-par HDR experience (due to their maximum 300 cd/m² brightness), even though they do tout HDR 10 certification. Response times are being set at 4 ms for both models, with a 1,200:1 contrast ratio.

The monitors feature blue-light reduction technology, and 2x 5 W speakers are par of the course. "Flickerless" technology points our proverbial ears to some sort of variable refresh rate technology, but nothing else from the translation seems to suggest this. Input listing points to 1x HDMI 2.0 (HDCP 2.2 compatible), 2x HDMI 1.4, and 1x DisplayPort 1.2 ports. Apparently, these will be launched in Asia first, for 70,000 yen (550 EUR/USD) and 100,000 yen (799 EUR/USD) for the 49" and 55" panels, respectively, starting on June 21st.
