When AOC first announced its Agon sub-brand for all the gamers, we had a feeling that plenty of good things were in the works. Adding to the growing collection are a pair of AOC Agon gaming monitors for the US market, plus three more that should be on the way soon.
Both of the new AOC Agon gaming monitors are 24-inchers and are "made for the enthusiastic and highly competitive gamers." The AOC AG241QG with G-SYNC (listed at $699, selling at $549) is the more premium of the two, boasting NVIDIA's popular technology and a 165 Hz refresh rate. If you want to save a few bucks, you can grab the AOC AG241QX with Adaptive Sync (listed at $499, selling at $399). Both gaming monitors are quad HD and offer a 1 ms response time.
And in both cases, you can expect the respective "sync" technology to work its wonders, virtually eliminating the common problems of motion blur and screen tearing. You can also expect AOC Flicker-Free Technology to minimize eye strain during those extended gaming sessions.
Looking ahead, AOC also has plans for the 27-inch AG271UG with G-Sync and the 35-inch curved AG352UCG, also with G-Sync. Both are expected to ship in late March. Tehy will be followed by the 240Hz AG251FZ in May. Read the press release below for more details.

AOC Announces Availability of Two New 24” Agon Monitors for U.S. Gamers and Tease Three Additional Displays Coming Soon
Fremont, Calif. – February 23, 2017 – AOC, a worldwide leader in monitor display technology, today announces the U.S. availability schedule of five new monitors within their premium line of AOC gaming monitors, the Agon series. The first two from the series, which are available in the U.S. now, are the AG241QX (24-inch Class Adaptive-Sync) and the AG241QG (24-inch Class NVIDIA® G-SYNC), both featuring QHD resolution and a 1 ms response time. While the AG241QG comes with 165 Hz, NVIDIA G-SYNC technology and NVIDIA ULMB, the AG241QX differentiates itself by having 144 Hz and Adaptive-Sync technology. Both monitors made for the enthusiastic and highly competitive gamers, allowing them to race through games without stutter, screen tearing and motion blur. The AG241QX and the AG241QG are available at Amazon for $499 and $699 respectively.
The additional displays coming soon to the U.S. include the AG271UG, a 27-inch NVIDIA G-Sync™ Gaming Monitor with 4K resolution and rapid 4ms response time ($799.99 – Available late March); the AG352UCG, a 35-inch Curved NVIDIA G-Sync™ Gaming Monitor that offers a highly immersive gaming experience, thanks to a small 2000 mm curvature radius and a 3440 x 1440 pixel resolution ($999.99 – Available late March); and the AG251FZ, the 240Hz and fastest Agon Gaming Monitor coming to market ($499.99 – Available in May).
Eye comfort is one of the most important consideration for outlasting the competition. And since the Agon displays are designed specifically for the competitive gamer, they feature eye-protecting AOC Flicker-Free Technology to reduce eye strain, discomfort, and fatigue during long gaming sessions. The AG241QX Adaptive-Sync model goes even further with its Low Blue Light mode, reducing adverse short wavelength blue light without sacrificing color quality.
Additional powerful gaming features of the AG241QX are the AOC Low Input Lag, AOC Shadow Control and the AOC Game Mode Presets on the special Qwick Switch KeyPad. Gamers that play competitively not only rely on fast and smooth images, but also on instantaneously-executed commands and perfect visuals in every situation. The AOC Low Input Lag mode disables picture post-processing on the monitor’s electronics and, therefore, accelerates the command pass-through from mouse, keyboard and gamepad to result in immediate actions.
While the low input lag ensures gamers’ commands are executed without delay, the AOC Shadow Control provides quick contrast adjustment for a better view of pinpointed areas, as to not jeopardize the already well-balanced screen areas. Monitor settings are key features when it comes to individuality and performance, and they need to be easily accessible. The AOC Settings KeyPad allows users to switch effortlessly between modes and adjust brightness, contrast and other gaming features to comfortably switch between various image settings, save presets and activate them when needed.
Finally, the AOC Agon series’ ergonomic base provides plenty of comfort so gamers can adjust height, tilt and swivel, and is accurately marked by a scale, so gamers can always jump back to their preferred settings. The stand is also equipped with a carry-handle for easy transportation of the monitor to and from eSports events. There is even a headphone holder at the side of the display to support the headset when it’s not in use.
