AOC AGON Q24G2A/BK: New compact gaming monitor arrives packing QHD and 165 Hz visuals
AOC has introduced the AGON Q24G2A/BK, a new 23.8-inch IPS gaming monitor. According to the company, the small panel outputs natively at 2,560 x 1,440 pixels, which would correspond to a 123 PPI pixel density. For reference, competing 1080p gaming monitors will deliver a noticeably less pixel-dense 92 PPI.
Additionally, the AGON Q24G2A/BK combines its 1440p (QHD) resolution with a 165 Hz refresh rate and 1 ms response times (GtG), plus AMD FreeSync Premium to minimise image tearing. The gaming monitor also offers 350 nits peak brightness, along with a 1,000:1 contrast ratio and 80% coverages of the Adobe RGB and DCI-P3 colour spaces. Moreover, AOC has built the AGON Q24G2A/BK around a three-sided frameless bezel for a more immersive experience while gaming.
Elsewhere, the AGON Q24G2A/BK has stereo 2 W speakers, 100 x 100 mm VESA wall mounts and a 3.5 mm jack, plus DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 2.0 video outputs. Please note that the gaming monitor peaks at 144 Hz when connecting to a device via HDMI. Furthermore, the AGON Q24G2A/BK has an adjustable stand and ships with AOC G-Menu, a software suite that simplifies adjusting brightness and other settings without using on-screen menu controls. AOC will start selling the AGON Q24G2A/BK later this month for €249 in the Eurozone and £219.99 in the UK.
