Gamescom 2017: AOC showcases superfast 240 Hz AGONG-SYNC monitor

Just in time for Gamescom 2017, AOC will unleash its latest 240 Hz gaming monitor, which will be available shortly. Apart from its refresh rate, the AOC AGON AG251FG boasts a 1 ms response time, NVIDIA G-SYNC, NVIDIA ULMB and other premium gaming features. At the AOC Gamescom booth (hall 5.1, B020), attendees can try out the new display first-hand, amongst a selection of other AGON product highlights.

Maximum smoothness and comfort

The AOC AGON AG251FG comes with a 24.5" (62.2 cm) TN panel in 16:9, 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution. With its 240 Hz refresh rate and built-in NVIDIA G-SYNC module, it is an ideal choice for NVIDIA graphics card owners looking for super-smooth gameplay in all fast-paced games like FPS where each delivered frame counts.

The G-SYNC technology synchronises the display’s refresh rate to the graphics card’s GPU in order to eliminate screen tearing and minimise display stuttering as well as input lag. The monitor’s 1 ms response time and NVIDIA ULMB option reduce motion blur and ghosting, so that gamers can enjoy razor-sharp graphics even in extremely fast game scenes. To boost players’ comfort as well, the AG251FG comes with a convenient headset holder, the highly flexible AOC Ergo Dial Base, the eye-protecting Flicker-Free technology and more.

Note: The monitor also features 1 x HDMI, 1 x DisplayPort, 4 x USB 3.0, Audio out, Microphone in/out.

Try it out at gamescom, get it in stores

Starting in the second week of August, the AOC AGON AG251FG will become available in stores, with an MSRP of £519. Visitors can try out the new monitor first-hand at AOC’s gamescom booth in Cologne (23 - 26 August 2017, hall 5.1, B020).

Press visitors can also get an exclusive look at a prototype of the new AGON 3 model and learn more about the upcoming QHD curved HDR AGON display with a 0.5 ms response time and an also new 27″ 4K HDR AGON model with 144 Hz.
