AOC has finally given the Q27G3XMN a global release, which it sells as the AOC Gaming Q27G3XMN/BK in Europe and the UK. In summary, AOC presented the monitor in China during the summer before revealing US pricing a month later (curr. US$249.99 on Amazon). As we have discussed previously, the Gaming Q27G3XMN/BK centres on a 27-inch VA panel that combines with 336 Mini LED local dimming zones to reach VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certification.
Thus, the gaming monitor achieves 1,000 nits peak brightness when viewing HDR content, which drops to 700 nits with SDR content. Additionally, the Gaming Q27G3XMN/BK boasts a 1440p (2,560 x 1,440) resolution, a 180 Hz refresh rate (144 Hz default) and 1 ms GtG response times. Moreover, the gaming monitor has one DisplayPort 1.4 connection and a pair of HDMI 2.0 ports.
Elsewhere, the Gaming Q27G3XMN/BK has an adjustable stand, 100 x 100 mm VESA wall mounts, and a 3.5 mm jack for connecting external audio equipment. The AOC Gaming Q27G3XMN/BK will be available from 'late November/early December 2023' in the UK and the Eurozone. At the time of writing, AOC plans to charge £349.99 for the monitor in the UK and €439 in the Eurozone. Please see AOC's website for more details.
