AOC AGON Pro AG276QZD: European pricing and availability confirmed for new 240 Hz OLED gaming monitor
AOC has now revealed European pricing and availability for the AGON Pro AG276QZD, its latest OLED gaming monitor. To recap, the company previously showcased the gaming monitor in China, during which it confirmed the inclusion of a 26.5-inch and 1440p (2,560 x 1,440) panel. The 16:9 monitor also delivers 1,000 nits peak brightness. PCGamer notes that the AGON Pro AG276QZD may only be capable of outputting at 150 nits in SDR mode, though, likely because of the LG Display panel that it relies upon.
Additionally, AOC has built the AGON Pro AG276QZD with an external power supply. While the company has not shared the effect this has on thermals, moving excess heat away from the panel should improve its lifespan and its ability to operate at high brightness levels. Moreover, the AGON Pro AG276QZD has 0.03 ms response times aided by AMD FreeSynC Premium and NVIDIA G-SYNC support.
AOC claims that the monitor also provides 98.5% DCI-P3 colour space coverage and a 240 Hz native refresh rate. However, the AGON Pro AG276QZD's port selection will limit it to 144 Hz at 1440p over HDMI. Specifically, AOC has equipped the monitor with HDMI 2.0 ports, with DisplayPort 1.4 connections serving as the only way to achieve 240 Hz gaming at 1440p.
Furthermore, the AGON Pro AG276QZD has two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports and a USB Type-B upstream connection. AOC hopes to begin selling the AGON Pro AG276QZD for €999 in the Eurozone starting in June. The company has not shared pricing or availability details for other markets yet, though.
