AOC Unveils New QHD Gaming Monitor

Using AMD freesync, AOC's new QHD monitor is made for enthusiasts and eSports gamers alike.

Today AOC, a manufacturer of high-definition computer monitors, televisions, and other display technologies, has announced its newest gaming monitor: the Agon AG322QCX. This 32-inch, curved QHD monitor is built specifically with eSports gamers and gaming enthusiasts in mind. It features a plethora of user-centric features, such as AMD freesync technology, Shadow Control, and LowBlue Mode. Other monitor features include a 144Hz refresh rate and a 4ms response time. 

The monitor's freesync technology allows for refresh rate synchronization between AMD-powered GPUs and the AG322's screen, which is meant to reduce screen-tearing, minimize stutter, and decrease input/output lag. AMD released its royalty-free freesync technology in 2015 to directly compete with Nvidia's G-sync technology and can be found in other currently-available AOC monitors. 

Receiving input from such eSports teams as Team Liquid, AOC has also incorporated Shadow Control and LowBlue Mode into the AG322QCX. These technologies reportedly work in concert to ameliorate eye fatigue caused from extended play and eSports training sessions. Both features function to reduce shadows and eliminate certain wavelengths of blue light, the latter of which some studies suggest may cause retinal damage over time.

The Agon AG322 has a resolution of 2560x1440, a single VGA port, two HDMI ports, two display ports, and two USB 3.0 ports. It currently retails for $429.99.
