AOC AG322QCX & AG272FCX Curved 16:9 Displays Announced

Posted on February 27, 2017

AOC is readying a multiplicity of gaming displays aimed at different price segments. All the gaming monitors belong to AOC’s AGON family and are largely similar aesthetically speaking, with dissimilarities chiefly in the panel types and feature sets. We’ll provide an overview below.

AOC is introducing two new curved displays to supplement their existing curved gaming monitors. The new displays both have 1800R curvature with a 16:9 aspect ratio, as well as VA panels capable of 144Hz refresh rates.

The new panels sport ultra-thin bezels flaunted as ‘frameless’ while also having four RGB LEDs located on the back and bottom of the panel. A noteworthy setback on the AG322QCX is the absence of HDCP support—meaning it will lack functionality as an HDCP enabled device for playback of HDCP encrypted content.

The new monitors are set to launch in Europe this May, while the exact MSRPs for the U.S. are presently unknown.

AOC plans to bring five new AGON monitors to the U.S., with the AG241QX and AG241QG already listed on Amazon. The aforementioned monitors were announced late last year and rolled-out in the UK.
