AOC releases two 144Hz 1080p FreeSync gaming monitors


AOC are now joining the adaptive sync party and are releasing two monitors with support for AMD FreeSync. The duo consists of the 24-inch G2460PF model and the 27-inch G2770PF model. Both of the monitors have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 (FHD) and have TN panels. They are targeted at gamers, who want the fastest input lag and response time that you can get, since both monitors offer a 1ms response time and have very low input lag according to AOC.

While many people are turning to IPS panels due to their better color representation and viewing angles, a lot of people still prefer TN panels due to their fast response time and high refresh rate. Spec-wise, both monitors are very similar and budget minded. Both screens have a refresh rate of 144Hz of course, but here comes the interesting part. With FreeSync enabled, the refresh rate of the monitor varies from 48-146Hz. Yes, with FreeSync enabled, you can achieve a refresh rate even higher than the maximum static refresh rate of 144Hz, as seen with several G-SYNC monitors. You need to use either a dual link DVI-D connector or the DisplayPort connector to take advantage of the variable refresh rate up to 146Hz. It makes sense to use the DisplayPort, though, since it is required for FreeSync to work. The G2460PF has a brightness of 350 cd/m2, while the G2770PF has a brightness of 300 cd/m2.

As far as connectors goes, the monitors have a DVI-D, HDMI, DisplayPort and VGA connector. Furthermore, there are four USB slots. The screens can also be mounted on a wall (VESA-compatible) and are fully pivot, swivel and tilt adjustable.

The monitors will be available from September 2015 with a price tag of $360 (G2460PF) and $440 (G2770PF) at retailers.

  • Think it’s time for some to learn the difference btw. kHz and Hz, as Freesync is only working in the range of 48Hz to 75Hz from factory for the AOC G2460PF.
    The monitor spec that mention a range from 30 to 160 is the V-sync and then it’s in kHz, but don’t be sad if you’re wrong, you’re not alone 😉

    “Adam Simmons” from “” has made the same mistake 😉
    He tried to hold on to the rumored range of 30-160Hz for a while…
    As can be seen here:

    PCM2 in the forum is “Adam Simmons” from “”, he later on tried to proof that the 30-160Hz Freesync range was possible and true, but mannage only to OC from the factory range of 48-75Hz to a maximum of 48-146Hz. OK, it’s not bad, but still “NOT” 30-160Hz…

    The full spec. att AOC:
    It’s intresting that AOC isn’t mention a Freesync range of 30-160Hz as that must be a good sale argument, in fact the Freesync range is not mentioned at all, not even the factory range of 48-75Hz…

    By the way, the same is true for AOC G2770PF…

    PCM2/Adam Simmons would like to clarify that he was not the originator of this misinformation and neither was I, but rather it was an internal misunderstanding which elements of AOC (including PR people, product managers and other representatives) circulated. He simply passed on what he was told and did not make any false assumptions or fabricate this information. It is apparent from testing that the FreeSync range is 48 – 146Hz without any modifications to the monitor. Anything else stated to the contrary is incorrect.

  • Frankly I understand the argument for the wrong numbers, and is able to by that to some degree, I do understand that the original error originate from AOC.
    The first error.

    But aren’t you and also Simmons reviewing monitors?
    And by that is expected to have such knowledge so it should not be any problem to spot wrong numbers.
    This is the second error.

    The third error is in the forum where Simmons is defending those numbers, yes he eventually made a test and found the range to be from 48 to 146 Hz. But still this range is NOT possible out of the box!

    And the fourth error is to solely blame AOC, yes they are the origin for the error, but still…

    For what I understand so was “only” one monitor tested in the range of 48 to 146 Hz at that time, is this then confirming that every one of those AOC monitors is able to handle 48 to 146 Hz.
    There maybe more tests now, but I have not checked.

    AOC is now presenting this numbers for the monitor:

    Scanning Frequency
    H: 30-83 Hz (30-160 Hz DVI-D/DP)
    V: 50-76 Hz (50-146 Hz DVI-D/DP)
    Pixel Frequency 330MHz

    And with an Vertical scanning frequents of 50 Hz to 76 Hz, the Horizontal frequency shall be in the range of ~56 kHz to ~86 kHz.

    Still that is not fit for the numbers AOC is showing, so it looks like the have mixed the number and Hz vs. kHz real god 😉

    Then the Vertical scanning frequency for DVI-D/DP is said to be 50-146 Hz, and that mean the Horizontal frequency is some wear around ~56 kHz to ~172 kHz.
    Even here it’s messed up real god…

    And the Pixel Frequency for 1920×1080@146 Hz shall be around 458 MHz, here AOC says 330MHz, to be in range for 330 MHz without OC the monitor the maximal Vertical scanning frequency is 108 Hz@1920×1080.

    – AOC has NO number correct, as those present is speaking against each other.
    – If (and there is an big if) the Pixel Frequency is 330MHz, then everything above 108 Hz in Vertical scanning frequency is an OC. Unless anyone using the monitor at lower resolution.
    – There can not be any warranty that every monitor is able to handle 48 to 146 Hz
    – I’m surprised that none, ether you or Simmons (or anyone at AOC) did any verification of given data as it’s a simple calculation. Or when it comes to Hz and kHz as there is a differers of 1000.

    In the end we are all human and by that miss things, makes mistake. But the real strength is to admit those errors/mistakes.
