Monitor specialist AOC has expanded its Agon Pro series aimed at competitive gamers. The Agon AG274XM, AG274UXP and AG274QG all offer enticing specifications, although the latter is the only 240 Hz monitor on offer. The new Agon Pro monitors start at €969; only one is orderable this year.

AOC has unveiled three Agon Pro monitors; all pitched at competitive gamers. The AG274QXMAG274UXP and AG274QG are all 27-inch monitors, but they differ in many areas. However, they share a 120 mm height-adjustable stand, a 4-port USB 3.2 hub, RGB lighting and a projectable Agon logo.

Additionally, the trio have AOC's QuickSwitch controller that allows you to make game-related adjustments on the fly. Likewise, AOC has equipped its new Agon Pro monitors with dual 5 W speakers with DTS certification, along with a USB Type-C that can recharge devices at up to 65 W. Only the AG274QXM contains a KVM switch, though.

The AG274UXP is the cheapest of the three at €969. AOC has equipped it with an IPS and 4K panel that operates at up to 144 Hz with 1 ms GtG response times. The monitor is also DisplayHDR 600 certified, covers 98% of the DCI-P3 colour space and has an HDMI 2.1 port for Xbox Series S|X and PlayStation 5 compatibility.

Meanwhile, the AG274QXM and AG274QG are priced identically at €1,089. Both are QHD monitors too, although that is where the similarities end as far as their displays are concerned. On the one hand, the AG274QXM has a 170 Hz refresh rate, 576 mini LED backlight dimming zones and DisplayHDR 1000 certification. On the other hand, the AG274QG peaks at 240 Hz but with an IPS panel that is DisplayHDR 600 certified.

The AG274UXP will be available later this month in Europe, the UK and US. By contrast, AOC will not bring the AG274QXM or AG274QG to market until February 2022.
