With the 27-inch AG274QZM 1440p 240hz monitor for gaming from the Agon Pro series, AOC is launching a professional display: Agon Pro AG274QZM. The new 240hz gaming monitor offers first-class equipment and is primarily intended to appeal to competitive gamers.
For gamers, who are looking for a very fast high-end QHD monitor with excellent features, AOC now has the right weapon in its range with the Agon Pro AG274QZM. The AOC AG274QZM scores among other things with a 27-inch IPS panel with mini-LED backlighting, which offers a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels and a refresh rate of up to 240 Hz.
The AOC AG274QZM also has 576 dimming zones, DisplayHDR 1000 certification, a peak brightness of up to 1,200 cd/m², very deep blacks, and a lightning-fast response time of 1 millisecond for high-speed gaming. The three-sided frameless professional gaming monitor also supports Nvidia G-Sync to effectively reduce tearing and image stuttering.
The Monitor Shield included with the AOC Agon Pro AG274QZM allows gamers to shield the high-quality gaming display against bright ambient light or reflections from stage lights or brighteners and to increase the contrast even further.
For creatives in content and media production, the AG274QZM offers, among other things, USB-C connectivity with 65 watts of power for charging and operating laptops. Four USB 3.2 ports are available for the additional connection of peripheral devices. With the integrated KVM switch, the AOC 1440p 240hz monitor allows you to switch between two sources with the same keyboard and mouse set.
The Light FX RGB lights on the back of the AG274QZM, which can be synchronized with other Agon equipment, ensure the right lighting mood when gaming. A logo projector projects the Agon logo onto the desk. The QuickSwitch controller in the form of a puck, which is also included with the AG274QZM, allows easy setting of game-specific functions in the OSD. The gaming setup can also be done using the joystick or the G-Menu software.
