Share this content

AOC have announced that they are updating their super-popular and widely praised G2 monitors, including a small increase to the refresh rate. We reviewed the AOC 24G2U (23.8″) and 27G2U (27″) displays back in 2020 as part of our round-up of budget gaming monitors and were impressed by their performance and specs, considering their low price point. Other reviewers have praised them as well, for their very good price to performance ratio. AOC are now replacing these models with the 24G2SPU and 27G2SPU models. Full details below.

AOC 24G2SPU and 27G2SPU Specs including boosted 165Hz refresh rate

The new screens retain the same 23.8″ and 27″ sizes respectively, and offer a 1920 x 1080 resolution IPS-type panel with a 3 side frameless design. The refresh rate has been bumped from 144Hz to 165Hz for a small improvement. This is supported again by adaptive sync for VRR from both NVIDIA and AMD systems. A 1ms MPRT spec is listed as the screen will feature a blur reduction mode as well.

All four new models feature gaming specific settings, such as Game Color (to adjust saturation), Dial Point (crosshair overlay for accurate aiming), LowBlue Mode for longer gaming sessions during the night, and three gaming modes for different genres such as FPS, RTS, Racing as well three user customisable modes. The new, modern OSD software G-Menu makes adjusting fine display details a breeze.

The two new screens feature fully adjustable stands with tilt, height, swivel and rotate functions. They also have an integrated 4 port USB hub and 2x 2W basic speakers.

‘AE’ Versions with a basic stand and no USB hub also available

Users with multi-monitor setups might consider simpler monitors AGON by AOC offers the 24G2SPAE and 27G2SPAE as the pared-down options without a USB hub and with a simpler stand. Identical to the 24G2SPU and 27G2SPU in terms of panel but with a reduced feature-set, they are perfectly suited for dual/triple monitor setups or for users already equipped with monitor arms such as the AOC’s AD110D0 using the VESA mount option. These replace the previous 24G2AE and 27G2 AE models.
