AOC Announces AGON UltraWide Curvedgaming monitor with NVIDIA G-SYNC

AOC has announced the AGON AG352UCG which they claim is the most immersive display in AOC’s AGON premium gaming monitor series yet. With an extra-small curvature radius of 2000 mm, it puts gamers right into the centre of the action.

NVIDIA G-SYNC technology also ensures a super-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.

Additionally clever display presets such as AOC Shadow Control and convenient features such as a headset holder and a handle make the AG352UCG an ideal choice for esports pros, 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.

Total immersion

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 can not only be an advantage in many games, it also makes them more immersive. The latter effect is even increased dramatically by the AG352UCG’s curved screen with an extra-small radius of 2000 mm. The concave display improves the viewer’s perception of depth, while minimising picture distortion, which adds a whole new level of immersion to the gaming experience. The small 2000 mm radius makes the curvature and immersion even stronger compared to displays with a larger radius.

Smooth gameplay

In addition to the monitor’s high refresh rate of 100 Hz, the NVIDIA G-SYNC module built into the AOC AGON AG352UCG synchronises the display refresh rates to the GPU of compatible NVIDIA graphics cards. This way, it virtually eliminates screen tearing, while also minimising display stuttering and input lag. The result is super-smooth graphics and highly responsive gameplay without any distractions, which lets competitive gamers excel at their profession. The NVIDIA Ultra Low Motion Blur (ULMB) technology also gives players the option to reduce motion blur and ghosting effects.

Perfect comfort

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, which reduces 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 empower gamers to find a comfortable position and prevent back pain. A convenient carry-on handle makes it easy to bring the AG352UCG along to LAN parties and events, and a retractable headset holder lets players safely deposit their headset during breaks.

Individual Style

In addition to its performance and features, the AOC AGON AG352UCG also comes in 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 £799.
