A crazy-fast OLED monitor for gamers – Meet the AGON Pro AG276QZD

AOC has confirmed that their new AGON Pro AG276QZD will become available to purchase later this month, offering gamers a 27-inch OLED screen that features an ultra-fast 240Hz refresh rate, 0.03ms grey-to-grey response times, and a crisp 2560×1440 resolution.

With 10-bit colour, 98.5% DCI-P3 colour gamut coverage and the “infinite” contrast ratios of OLED displays, AOC’s AGON Pro AG276QZD also promises to deliver stellar HDR performance with its “True Blacks” and 1,000 nits peak brightness levels. All this while operating at 240Hz with G-Sync Compatible Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) support; which works on both AMD and Nvidia systems.

Given this display’s specifications, it is unsurprising that this fast OLED gaming monitor is shipping with an eye watering price tag. That said, at £879,99 this screen is a lot cheaper that some competing OLED gaming screens, which shows that there is some worthwhile competition within the OLED monitor market.

Below is what AOC has to say about their new AGON Pro AG276QZD OLED gaming montor.

Press Release – AGON by AOC Announces AGON PRO AG276QZD 27-inch 240Hz OLED Gaming Monitor

AGON by AOC—the world’s leading gaming monitor and IT accessories brand – proudly unveils the AG276QZD – the latest addition to the AGON PRO series. This state-of-the-art 26.5″ (67.3 cm) gaming monitor features an OLED panel, which delivers a sharp QHD resolution (2560×1440) at a stunning 240 Hz refresh rate and a blazingly fast 0.03 ms GtG response time. The AG276QZD offers a breathtaking infinity contrast ratio thanks to the per-pixel-illumination of the OLED panel, perfect black levels, and a wide color gamut (10-bit color depth and 98.5% DCI-P3 coverage), making it an excellent choice for gamers who appreciate both visual excellence and exceptional performance. Thanks to its striking, asymmetrical design touches with a two-tone black/space grey finish, the AG276QZD is not just an eye-catcher but already a winner of the Red Dot Design Award (2022).

The AGON PRO AG276QZD utilises an advanced OLED panel, providing an unprecedented contrast ratio compared to everyday LCD monitors (uniform backlights), and true-to-life colors with perfect blacks and wide viewing angles. The display’s comparatively faster response time (0.03 ms GtG) and lower input lag as well as Adaptive-Sync support and G-Sync compatibility facilitate smoother gameplay and make every moment count in competitive gaming scenarios.

Featuring HDR10 support, the AG276QZD delivers stunning visuals and outstanding color accuracy, resulting in an immersive gaming environment, whether in rapid competitive multiplayer shooters, MOBA or action titles, or in story-driven, visually-perfected single player titles. The wide color gamut ensures vibrant and realistic colors, bringing every frame to life on-screen, making the monitor both capable in content consumption as well as content creation.

Sleek new design and great RGB customisation

In this 6th generation of AGON monitors, the new AG276QZD showcases a sophisticated black anodised metal finish on the front cabinet combined with a space grey stand base. Its esports-ready design is further reflected by convenient features such as a quick-release mechanism for easy setup, and a user-friendly handle, perfect for carrying the AG276QZD gaming beast to LAN parties and tournaments – a Kensington lock helps to secure the monitor in such public places, too. The small foot print of the base leaves more space on the desk for the mouse and keyboard, which can be connected via the built-in 2-port USB 3.2 hub. A rubber cable management clip lets users tuck everything away nicely, overall reducing desktop clutter. Whilst the stand’s ergonomic features like 130 mm height adjustment, portrait orientation or tilt adjustment promote physical comfort.

Furthermore, for those gamers who like to match the monitor to their colorful peripherals, the AG276QZD includes Light FX RGB customisation options, that allow users to create the perfect ambiance for their gaming sessions. The Light FX can be synchronised with selected AOC GAMING and AGON peripherals (gaming keyboards, gaming mice, mouse mats and headsets) using AOC’s easy-to-use G-Menu software.

The AGON PRO AG276QZD will be available from June 2023 with an RRP of £879.99.
