AOC announces new high-performance 300Hz 1440p gaming monitor

The future of gaming monitors looks very bright for AOC

Updated: Jul 1, 2022 5:02 pm

AOC is kickstarting the new year with a bang, announcing what looks set to be one of the best gaming monitors of 2022 – the AGON AG274QGM.

We managed to speak to a spokesperson in AOC’s AGON department after today’s press release who was able to confirm the arrival of the new panel – lifting the lid on some of the display’s core specs and features.

The esports-tailored PRO AG274QGM would be the first 27-inch 1440p monitor to feature a blistering 300Hz refresh rate and 1ms GTG response time. Better still, the new panel would also feature mini-LED backlight technology, VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certification, and a wide DCI-P3 gamut too – meaning you can guarantee a stunning experience no matter what genre you decide to play.

Unfortunately, the available and RRP of the AGO PRO AG274QGM are not yet confirmed.

AOC AGON AG274QGM: Designed for esports gamers

AOC’s latest AGON monitor will be coined the AGON PRO AG274QGM and would indeed boast a 300Hz 1440p mini-LED IPS display. Yep, that’s right, a 300Hz refresh rate alongside a 1440p screen resolution makes the AG274QGM the fastest QHD display of its kind. The monitor was first teased during NVIDIA’s CES 2022 press conference where they unveiled the company’s vision for the future of gaming monitors.

The brand’s official press release goes on to discuss how the AG274QGM has been custom-designed for the esports players of today. All features and core specs are tailored towards high-performance gaming, including many of the panel’s OSD features too (of which many are still hidden from public release).

The AG274QGM’s 300Hz refresh rate will pair nicely with the built-in Nvidia G-Sync Ultimate module for unrivaled smoothness and tear-free gaming. Furthermore, the panel also looks set to offer a 1ms GTG response time too – reducing annoying screen artifacts such as ghosting and smearing exponentially.

The mini-LED backlight technology will provide the AG274QGM with 576 local dimming zones that help to create a more lifelike contrast ratio and reduce haloing when light objects contrast on dark backgrounds. A wide 95% DCI-P3 color gamut is also expected from this monitor, with VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certification also being rumored as well.

Like other models within the AOC AGON range, the AG274QGM will also feature NVIDIA’s built-in Reflex Analyzer as well – allowing gamers to record any input lag between mouseclicks and on-screen results. No longer will you be able to blame your tools when using this monitor, it really does look set to tick all the right boxes.

Alongside this, AOC also announced the new AOC Gaming GM510 Nvidia reflex mouse.
