AOC: New gaming displays in curved design presented

The monitor manufacturer has introduced four new screens that are designed to make gamers’ hearts beat faster. In addition to a curved design with 1500 R, they also feature a refresh rate of 165 Hz.

Expansion of the G2 series

The popular G2 series from AOC is already used by many gamers. Not least because of the positive feedback, the manufacturer is now expanding the series. With the C24G2AE, C24G2U, C27G2AE and C27G2U, the display specialist is launching four new models with 24 and 27 inches on the market. These should be convincing, especially in the gaming sector. In order to meet the highest demands, the displays offer a number of features. This already starts with the curved design. Here AOC relies on a Full-HD VA panel, which should be able to offer 1500R with the highest viewing angle stability. In addition, the monitors are equipped for the latest graphics card technology from AMD. The Premium Support from AMD FreeSync ensures this. The refresh rate of 165 Hz is supposed to ensure an extremely fluid picture. With the response time of 1 ms, you are also competitive in multiplayer. In addition, the four new additions to the G2 series will have integrated speakers. The last letters in the designation make it clear in which direction the respective monitor steers. While the AE stands for uncompromising gaming accessories, AOC focuses more on flexibility and ergonomics in the U models.

While the “U-models” (left) are height-adjustable, among other things, the “AE models” (right) are primarily suitable for mounting on a monitor arm.

Good price-performance ratio

The recipe for success of the G2 series is the great price-performance ratio. Due to the good technology at a fair price, AOC has been able to establish a very good reputation in the gaming segment. So it was only a matter of time until AOC will continue to expand the series. With the four new models, the manufacturer seems to remain true to its motto. However, the new monitors offer some considerable additional features. The most obvious is probably the curved design. But beyond that, the 165 Hz are a respectable step forward. All in all, the monitors look very high-end due to their slim frame and the rather unobtrusive design. But the new monitors are also convincing in terms of contrast. The VA panel comes along with 3000:1 in the 24 inch versions. The 27-inch monitors even have a contrast ratio of 4000:1, which in combination with the colorful display should ensure optimal immersion. This is naturally supported by the curved screen.

Perfect for the multiplayer

Due to its high refresh rate of 165 Hz and a response time of just 1 ms, AOC’s new gaming monitors are ideally suited for multiplayer matches. Thanks to the support of AMD FreeSync Premium, you don’t necessarily need a high-end graphics card for the blazing-fast refresh rate. The variable refresh rate makes this possible. This eliminates the interference that can be caused by V-Sync. Besides AMD-FreeSync, the new monitors also offer the so-called MBR. With Motion Blur Reduction, the image reproduction is modified in such a way that the reaction time shrinks to just 1 ms. Furthermore, the new monitors have a special low-input lag mode. This results in a delay-free transfer to the monitor.

Flexibility is the A and O

AOC offers its new monitors in two different “groups”. The U models are aimed at average users who want a high-quality and above all comfortable screen. These devices can be adapted to their own needs by means of ergonomic and height-adjustable stands. This also applies to the tilt angle. For example, they enable a gentle posture if they are to be used as a work monitor. They also offer flexibility. This is ensured by the numerous connections in the form of four USB 3.2 ports. But if that’s not enough for you, you can choose the gaming class of the new G2 models. The AE models have set themselves the task of offering a “high-quality panel at the best price”. Practically, they can be easily installed on a dual monitor arm. This allows you to put together the perfect setup for racing games, for example.

Many similarities

To see the differences between the models, you have to take a closer look. Here the similarities definitely outweigh the differences. For example, all four newcomers have buttons at the bottom right of the screen that allow individual settings. This also includes access to special gaming functions. Here there are six different presets. Three of these can be configured by the user. Another one supports targeting accuracy thanks to digital crosshairs. With “game color” you can adjust the colors for better image details. To avoid eye pain after a long gaming session, the monitors offer a FlickerFree and LowBlue mode.

Price and availability

The four new 24-inch and 27-inch models are scheduled to be launched in September. The C24G2AE will cost 199 Euro and its larger partner model 269 Euro. The U models again cost 219 Euro (24 inch) and 289 Euro (27 inch) respectively.
