AOC AGON – New Gaming Monitor Line-up From AOC


The gaming monitor brand AOC has announced their new AGON lineup. The word AGON itself is an ancient Greek word meaning competition, which indicates that AGON is aiming for the eSports audience. The upcoming AOC AGON gaming monitor line-up will feature gaming monitors that caters to almost all audiences of the professional gaming industry. AOC believes that the AGON series will deliver the most gaming features and the most amazing designs to the gaming community of professional gamers.

During 2016, AOC will launch ten gaming monitors of the AGON sub-brand, with either IPS or TN panel technology. Each of them will be fully equipped with premium technology that will provide the user the most versatile gaming experience possible, in AOC’s own words. Furthermore, the AGON series features both curved and standard (flat) gaming monitors that supports Flicker-free Technology and either AMD FreeSync or NVIDIA G-SYNC.

As the modern gamer’s expectations are high due to the constantly evolving hardware industry, the gaming monitors of the AGON series must fulfill these in order to become successful. The AOC AGON gaming monitors will feature not only the latest monitor technology, but will also feature some exquisite designs. The TN panel monitors will feature a 1ms response time, as we have seen from basically any TN panel based monitor released in the past few years, so there’s nothing new there. Refresh rates will be at least 144Hz in this line-up as well, and AOC tells that some of the monitors will support an even higher refresh rate as well. All the AGON monitors will have height adjusting options and built-in speakers as well. Integrated USB 3.0 ports are a standard trait of this new gaming monitor series as well.

The sizes will vary from a 24-inch 16:9 gaming monitor to a 35-inch ultra-wide (21:9) gaming monitor. Among the ten new gaming monitors, you will find curved models as well, and the resolution of all the new monitors will vary from Full HD (1080p) and all the way to UHD (4K). If you are a hardcore gamer, then this series might have a monitor that you could be interested in.

Here’s a quick overview of the new AGON line-up from AOC:

  • 10 new gaming monitors with either TN or IPS panel

    Yes, hello? I’d like to order a curved 34 inch 3440 x 1440 Freesync (30-100Hz) VESA compatible monitor under €800 please 😛

  • Tyrann

    30-100hz is so 2015. We need Freesync 30-144Hz now.

  • Vriess

    The higher the refresh rate, the more expensive the display. I don’t play fast paced games and personally, I hardly see the difference between 100Hz and 144Hz.

  • Tyrann

    Its more the jump from 60hz to 144hz where you can really see the difference. Going from 60hz to 100hz you can tell slightly but once it goes to 120hz+ from 60hz then your eyes can really notice that smoothness. If you already are used to 100hz then you won’t get as big an upgrade as those still on 60hz, like myself.

  • helloo, sign me up for the curved beauties

  • Fr33f0x

    My best hope would be :
    – 25 inches monitor / 24 inches monitor
    – IPS pannel
    – 144hz
    – 4ms (IPS…)
    – G-sync
    – 1440p (if 25 inches) /1080p (if 24 inches)

    I’ll see it when it comes out but i might be dreaming !
    What about you guys ?

  • Jeff

    That would also be my dream monitor. I’m currently hanging onto my 24″ 1080p G-Sync monitor because I don’t want to move up to 27″. I am interested either way though, as I am not thrilled with the QC issues I’ve heard about the Acer/ASUS G-Sync monitors, but have been very happy with my AOC, so it would be good if they could put out something nice.

  • Fr33f0x

    Yep, i’m on my way to buy some gaming IPS monitor. Too bad, it doesn’t seem to exist in 24 inches with a good hz and g-sync. I really hope they’ll come with the 25inches specs I said before, coming from a 27… Right now, i wait to see AOC full set release. BTW, Asus said they will have a better QC in march. So let’s wait & see too…
