AOC recently launched three new G2 gaming monitors which are next in line for their current G-series line up comprised of high-performance, yet practical gaming monitors. The company is going with IPS technology this time which is highly sought after for its excellent viewing angles and vibrancy.
AOC also took the chance to show off its Agon Models which includes the AG273QCG, AG273QCX, and the lightning-fast AG251FZ together with its recent offerings. The AOC G25490PX G2 Esports Signature Edition (shown above) was also on the floor to impress competitive gamers with its capabilities.
AOC G2 Gaming Monitors at Gamescom 2019
AOC 24G2U and AOC 27G2U
The AOC 24G2U (24-Inch) and AOC G27G2U (27-inch) both offer a 1920 x 1080 resolution with 144Hz refresh rate which are common formats for E-Sports gaming. However, the G2 series now uses IPS panels instead of the previous generation’s TN models which are known to have faster pixels but fall behind in color rendering.
You don’t have to worry about slower pixel transitions for fast-paced shooters since the AOC 24G2U and the AOC 27G2U will have 1ms MPRT modes to tighten its response times. Both monitors are FreeSync-compatible, and we’re assuming they will also work with G-Sync compatibility in future driver updates.
Both models also include a facelifted design which appears sleeker without giving up their gamer-centric vibes. Connectivity layouts for the two will include the standard DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 1.4, VGA, and a USB hub along with built-in speakers for your convenience.
The AOC CQ27G2 is a cut above the previous two since it offers a 1440p 144Hz screen. But what makes it more unique is it uses a curved IPS panel which is rare in the gaming monitor market which is saturated with VA screens instead. This kind of display is an excellent all-arounder for competitive or immersive gaming and editing work if it provides excellent color fidelity.
The AOC CQ27G2 is also a FreeSync gaming monitor, but like many options in the market, it should be able to work with G-Sync as well. Specs are still forthcoming, so keep watching this page for more updates on this exciting new model.
