Originally listed as part of NVIDIA’s CES press release we now have a lot more official information from AOC about their forthcoming AGON Pro AG274QGM monitor. It’s a 27″ gaming monitor with a 2560 x 1440 resolution and 300Hz high refresh rate, and features a Native NVIDIA G-sync hardware module, certification for G-sync Ultimate, NVIDIA Reflex Latency Analyzer and even a Mini LED backlight. More information provided below.
AOC AGON Pro AG274QGM Specs
The screen is 27″ in size and based on an IPS-type panel. It has a 2560 x 1440 resolution and a 1ms G2G quoted response time. We believe that the refresh rate is 240Hz native, with a 300Hz overclocking mode but this is not confirmed. AOC say that the screen features a wide colour gamut backlight but doesn’t list the colour space coverage at this time. From the provided images it looks like the screen will include features like a down-firing AGON logo light, some RGB lighting on the back, and also come packaged with a shading hood.
NVIDIA G-sync Ultimate and Reflex Latency Analyzer
The screen also features a Native NVIDIA G-sync module, G-sync Ultimate certification and NVIDIA’s additional Reflex Latency Analyzer technology. The G-sync module will support the overclock, while also bringing about quality VRR experience, and other benefits like variable overdrive and super-low input lag. The Reflex Latency Analyzer allows you to easily and quickly track the latency and performance of your system and display. Check out our article linked above for a lot more information on that.
Reflex Analyzer is now automatically configured too – making latency measurement a 1-click experience that is incredibly easy to use. Now, all you have to do is plug your mouse into the proper USB port on your monitor and hit Alt + R – that’s it. You can now switch weapons, use weapons without muzzle flashes, and measure latency while playing the game.
With this latest update, the flash indicator is now controlled by GeForce Experience and will only be shown if the latency or Reflex Analyzer overlays are enabled. Gamers with a Reflex Mouse will be provided full end-to-end system latency measurements, while gamers without a Reflex Mouse can still measure PC + Display Latency. To use automatic configuration on your Reflex Analyzer display in a supported Reflex game, grab the next release of GeForce Experience and the latest Game Ready Driver.
Mini LED Backlight and DisplayHDR 1000 Certification
The screen also sports a Mini LED backlight with a confirmed 576 dimming zones, for improved contrast, local dimming and HDR experience. It achieves the VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certification as well, which includes the need for a peak brightness of 1000 nits. This also requires 10-bit colour depth and a wide colour gamut, with 98% DCI-P3 coverage expected.
Competitive gamers have long used the “Digital Vibrance” mode in the NVIDIA Control Panel to help make enemies pop and add more colour to scenes. The new class of 1440p G-SYNC esports displays have an enhanced vibrance mode – specifically tuned for esports – built directly into the monitor firmware.
Sometimes you might want to play on a smaller display for certain games. With ‘Dual-Format’ mode, you can play at the familiar 25” diagonal size at 1080p. Simply enable Dual-Format in the monitor settings and choose your desired resolution. This is useful for those who might want to game at 1080p instead of the native 1440p to improve frame rates or push up game settings.
The AG274QGM will apparently be released in July, in China at least. The availability and the RRP of AGON PRO AG274QGM are not yet confirmed for other regions we are told by AOC. More info when we get it.
