In the low-end of the monitor market, FreeSync has always had one major flaw, with budget FreeSync monitor often lacking wide variable refresh rate windows, what we would typically call a "FreeSync Range".

Some of today's budget-oriented FreeSync displays can ship with a variable refresh rate range that could be as low as 60-75Hz. This variable refresh rate range is soo small that it is practically useless, though today AOC has provided us with information about a display that has the potential to be a game changer in the low-end gaming monitor market. 

This display is the AOC Gaming G2590VXQ, a 24.5-inch 1080p TN display that comes with a listed FreeSync range of 30-75. This variable refresh rate range is ideal for gamers, as it works between framerates of 30, the minimum acceptable framerate for most modern gamers and the display's maximum refresh rate of 75Hz, which itself is higher than the standard 60Hz panels that most modern monitors ship using.

AOC plans to ship this display in the UK with a price of £159 sometime in January 2018, offering a 3-side frameless screen with a simple stand and stereo speakers. Sadly AOC has not revealed whether or not this display supports VESA monitor mounts.

If AOC's G2590VXQ can offer a flawless 30-75Hz FreeSync Range, the company will have transformed the low-end gaming monitor market. Delivering an ideal variable refresh rate window for typical PC gamers while also providing an attractive price point.

Just out of curiosity: Do people actually use 75Hz monitors for gaming? I've honestly never heard about such a monitor and I've only glanced at 120Hz and later 144Hz.Quote

Currently I am using one that has a refresh rate of 75hz. Though I have found out there are quite a few TN panels which will overclock to 75hz if you set them to the "LCD Reduced" preset, like in the NVIDIA control panel. Is it worth it though? I do see a difference when swapping between the 2, so for me yes I definitely think it is worth it.

75Hz used to be quite common when the standard monitor size was 19" and resolution 1280*1024... It's slightly better for gaming than 60Hz but that's about it.Quote

I game on a Dell UW 34* @80hz and it is nice. I would upgrade to a 144hz 34 UW for sure.

I would day 75hz is quite good.Quote

I'm a gamer that never plays any fastpaced games, I like CRPG, Strategy etc. My LG 075 Hz Ultrawide freesync monitor that I currently have suits me great. However I would never go with a TN panel.Quote
