AGON’s 5th generation expands with 270 Hz and 240 Hz QHD displays

AGON by AOC presents two new models from their brand new AGON 5 series: AGON AG275QZ/EU and AGON AG275QZN/EU. The AGON AG275QZ/EU has a 27-inch (68.6 cm) screen and features a fast IPS panel with a Quantum Dot coating capable of producing 1.07 billion colors. This is all combined with a 240Hz refresh rate (can be overclocked to 270HZ), 1ms GtG and 0.5ms MPRT response time. The 27-inch AGON AG275QZN/EU has a high-contrast Fast VA panel and also has the same specs: 240Hz refresh rate, 1ms GtG and 0.5ms MPRT response time.

Players get a smooth, fluid gaming experience with both models thanks to extremely low input lag and fast response times. This allows them to see opponents coming faster, helping them gain the upper hand in competitive games. Both screens are certified with VESA DisplayHDR 400 and support HDR10. At the same time, they guarantee fast and smooth images.

The latest generation of AGON 5 models was first introduced in October with two 165 Hz models. These are also equipped with Fast IPS or Fast VA panels. With the introduction of AG275QZ/EU and AG275QZN/EU, AGON by AOC raises the bar by offering 240 Hz or 270 Hz models. Like the 165 Hz models, these new models are sold in packaging that is 100% recyclable.

Both the AG275QZ/EU and AG275QZN/EU have an updated design compared to previous AGON models with a sleeker and cleaner look. The borderless design on three sides and the smaller metal base make the screens ideal for multi-monitor setups. The AG275QZ/EU and AG275QZN/EU also have a height-adjustable stand with swivel, swivel and tilt function. This makes them suitable for competitive matches both at home and on stage. A mess of cables is prevented thanks to the built-in cable management hole and power supply in the stand. Both models also have a built-in four-port USB hub (USB 3.2 Gen 1) so users can easily connect their peripherals, joystick or controller.

The AG275QZ/EU uses a Fast IPS panel with a Quantum Dot layer. This improves color accuracy and expands the color gamut to reproduce rich, saturated colors. The IPS panel is specified with 10-bit color depth and 1.07 billion colors. Due to the wide range of 99.9% AdobeRGB, 100% sRGB and 97.5% DCI-P3, the AG275QZ/EU is very suitable for content creators, YouTubers and live streamers. The monitor also supports VESA DisplayHDR400 and HDR10 to reproduce high dynamic range content. The AG275QZ/EU is one of the fastest QHD models on the market. The original 240 Hz refresh rate can easily be overclocked to 270 Hz via the monitor’s OSD. The combination of a 270 Hz refresh rate with low response times and a sharp QHD (2560×1440) resolution ensures that the screen will remain relevant for years to come.

The AG275QZN/EU has a Fast VA panel with 16.7 million colors and a higher contrast (3000:1) than the IPS-QD variant. As a result, this model excels at dark, shaded content and reproduces rich, deep blacks. The display offers a wide range of 89.3% AdobeRGB, 99.7% sRGB and 89.9% DCI-P3. The AG275QZN/EU is also VESA DisplayHDR 400 certified and supports HDR10.

Both the IPS (AG275QZ/EU) and VA variant (AG275QZN/EU) achieve an impressive 1ms GtG response time thanks to multiple pixel overdrive modes. Motion Blur Reduction (MBR) even reduces the perceived response time to just 0.5ms MPRT. Both models have Adaptive-Syn. This means they support variable refresh rate (VRR) implementations that prevent horizontal cracks in frames or choppy images. In addition, both models have a console mode. This also allows the monitors to be used in their 2560×1440@120 Hz modes with the latest generation of consoles. The AG275QZ/EU and AG275QZN/EU accept a 4K signal and downscale to a resolution of 2560×1440 when the high refresh rate is enabled.

The extensive menu system on the OSD can be used with a joystick or the AOC G-Menu software. This allows users to change the color and brightness settings and calibrate them perfectly. Features such as crosshair overlay, Shadow Control or Low Blue mode can also be adjusted via the menu system.
