It’s official. AOC has announced a new gaming monitor to their AOC AGON gaming monitor lineup. This time, it’s the AOC AGON AG352QCX, a 35-inch curved gaming monitor.
Starting off, this gaming monitor from AOC features an incredible 200Hz refresh rate. We already know of the Acer Predator Z35 gaming monitor, which reminds of this monitor in many ways. That monitor from Acer also features a 200Hz refresh rate, but only via an overclock provided by the G-Sync module. The AOC AGON AG352QCX gaming monitor also features a 200Hz refresh rate, but instead of supporting G-SYNC, this great gaming monitor supports AMD FreeSync instead. The variable refresh rate range is listed as 30Hz-200Hz, which give gamers the ultimate tear-free and smooth gaming experience.
Looking at the other specifications, the AGON AG352QCX features a 2560×1080 resolution, which is basically 1080p in UltraWide format (21:9 aspect ratio). This should result in a more immersive gameplay and is especially attractive for racing games.
The panel type is an MVA (Multi-Domain Vertical Alignment), which should give this monitor some great black levels and good color reproduction, and you’ll also get a 4ms response time (GtG). The screen itself is also curved with a specified 2000mm curve (2000R) and there is 100x100mm VESA mounting support if that’s an important feature to you. The included mount features height, swivel and tilt adjustment options.
When glancing at the connection options, you’ll see that this high refresh-rate gaming monitor supports DisplayPort 1.2a and HDMI 2.0 It comes with a USB 3.0 hub as well with 4 ports. Other notable features include an integrated headset clip and in-built 5W speakers. There is also a “Shadow Control” functionality, which will light up dark areas in games without affecting other areas of the display, making it much easier to see there and potentially boosting your gaming performance. The AOC AGON AG352QCX also features the AOC Flicker-Free technology and Low Blue Light technology, which will reduce eye even longer periods of usage.
As far as pricing details, AOC has announced a retail price of €799 and the release date is set for December 2016 in Europe. No words yet on a US release date or price yet, but we estimate it will cost around $650 in the US. We’ll update this article as we get hold of more information from our contact at AOC Gaming.
