AOC has announced a new best ultrawide monitor called the AG493QCX. The large monitor has a 49- inch VA panel with a resolution of 3840 x 1080 pixels (32: 9), a refresh rate of up to 144 Hz, 1800-R curvature, and DisplayHDR-400 certification.
The contrast ratio is 3000: 1, the response time is 4 ms (gray to gray), the color depth is 8 bits, and the typical brightness is 400 cd/m². Two integrated 5-watt loudspeakers can act as sound generators if required. FreeSync Premium Pro is represented against tearing, which consequently also works when HDR is activated.
On the interface side, two DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 2.0 inputs, a USB 3.2 hub, and a headphone output can be used. The ultra wide curved monitor also includes picture-by-picture modes and a mode against motion blur, which can be used as an alternative to sync technology.
The ergonomic aspects meanwhile shine with rotation, inclination, height adjustment, VESA mounting (100 x 100 mm), blue light filter, and flicker-free background lighting. In addition, the manufacturer promises 120 percent sRGB, 91 percent DCI-P3, and 89 percent Adobe RGB.
