AOC's new ACON AG273QX monitor will pack FreeSync 2 HDR and 165Hz support

This week, AOC has announced its ACON AG273QX gaming display, bringing gamers into its 3rd generation of AGON-series monitors. The ACON AG273QX is a 27-inch 1440p monitor which supports refresh rates of up to 165Hz and AMD's FreeSync 2 HDR technology. 

The ACON AG273QX utilises a VA panel which is said to offer users a 1ms MPRT response time and 400 nits of peak brightness. The screen meets the requirements for VESA's DisplayHDR 400 specification, which is low-end for an HDR monitor. Even so, AMD's FreeSync 2 HDR technology will help maximise the potential of the screen's HDR capabilities when using FreeSync 2 compatible software. 

AOC's AG273QX's screen covers 99% of the AdobeRGB colour gamut and 90% of the DCI-P3 colour space, which is better than most gaming screens. Even so, this display isn't tailored to professional use. The screen also supports AOC's LightFX functions thanks to the display's rear-mounted RGB LED ring, which can be controlled through software to personalise the screen to its user. 

For connectivity, the AG273QX supports VGA, DisplayPort 1.2 (2x full-sized, 1x Mini) and HDMI 2.0 (2x). The monitor also offers users dual 5W speakers, though we recommend that users of high-end gaming screen use dedicated speakers of audio headsets for better audio quality. The monitor also features a USB 3.0 hub with two USB 3.0 Type-B inputs and four USB 3.0 Type-A outputs. 

The screen's stand supports pivot, tilt and swivel options alongside 110mm of height adjustment, which should make the screen suitable for most users. Those who'd prefer to use monitor arms or custom mounts will be glad to know that the AG273QX supports VESA 75x75 monitor mounts. 

AOC's ACON AG273QX monitor will release this November with an MSRP of £439 in the UK. At the time of writing US and EU prices are unknown.

Compared to IPS the biggest downside is viewing angles aren't as good, however they are faster, provide better contrats which can lead to better image quality, and generally cheaper.

Most modern TVs use VA panels. You don't hear many complaints about them Quote

Yup, +3 on the goodness of a quality VA panel! Just bought my first Freesync monitor (Asus TUF VG32V), and it's a fantastic VA panel.Quote
