Immersion redefined: AOC AGON UltraWide Curved gaming monitor with NVIDIA G-SYNC (Video)
The AGON AG352UCG is the latest and most immersive addition to AOC’s AGON premium gaming monitor series. With an extra small curvature radius of 2000mm, it puts gamers right in the centre of the action. NVIDIA G-SYNC technology ensures an utterly smooth and responsive gaming experience by minimising screen tearing, display stuttering, and input lag. And the UltraWide QHD resolution of 3440 x 1440 pixels brings game worlds to life with crisp and highly detailed graphics on the large 35″ (88.9 cm) screen. Clever display presets such as the AOC Shadow Control and convenient features including a headset holder and carrying handle make the AG352UCG a perfect choice for esports professionals, who can even customise the monitor’s look thanks to adjustable coloured LED lights. Ergonomic adjustment options and display technologies for eye protection also help keep players healthy.
The AOC AGON AG352UCG boasts a 35″ (88.9 cm) VA panel with an UltraWide QHD resolution of 3440 x 1440 pixels, which lets players dive into epic game worlds with razor sharp and highly detailed graphics. The 21:9 format offers gamers a wider field of view, which not only provides an advantage in many games, but also makes them that much more enthralling. The effect of the top-of-the-line resolution is compounded by the immersiveness of the AG352UCG’s tightly curved screen. The concave display improves the viewer’s perception of depth whilst minimising picture distortion, substantially enriching the gaming experience. The small 2000mm radius maximises curvature, creating a stronger effect than displays with larger radiuses.
In addition to the monitor’s high refresh rate of 100 Hz, the NVIDIA G-SYNC module built into the AOC AGON AG352UCG synchronizes the display’s refresh rates with the GPU of compatible NVIDIA graphics cards. Screen tearing – caused by these being out of sync – is then virtually eliminated, while display stuttering and input lag are reduced to a minimum. The result is fluid graphics and responsive gameplay with no distractions which totally unleashes competitive players which is gaming at its best. The NVIDIA Ultra Low Motion Blur (ULMB) technology also gives players the option to reduce motion blur and ghosting effects.
Both the display settings and the monitor stand offer a variety of options to adjust the AOC AGON AG352UCG to gamers’ individual needs. The AOC Shadow Control option, for example, lightens overly dark areas of the image and darkens bright parts without affecting the rest of the screen. In order to prevent eye discomfort and fatigue during extended esports matches, AOC Flicker-Free technology regulates the monitor’s brightness with a direct current (DC) backlight system, reducing flicker. The AOC Low Blue Light option also reduces potentially harmful short wavelength blue light. To keep players’ posture healthy as well, the AG352UCG comes with a robust and highly ergonomic stand called AOC Ergo Base. It offers height, tilt, and swivel adjustment options, which enable users to find a comfortable position and prevent back pain. A convenient carrying handle makes it easy to bring the AG352UCG along to LAN parties and events, and a retractable headset holder lets players safely hang their headset during breaks.
In addition to its impressive performance and comfort features, the AOC AGON AG352UCG also sports a slick, imposing design. Even better, the monitor’s look can be adapted to players’ and esports teams’ individual taste and preferences: the LED lights on the AG352UCG’s back and lower bezel can be set to three different colours (red, green, blue) and three different brightness levels.
The AOC AGON AG352UCG will be available in March 2017. The MSRP is € 899.
