AOC's latest gaming monitor has been developed in partnership with Porsche Design, and it certainly looks the part. However, the Agon PD27 also packs a 27-inch panel that has a WQHD native resolution and a 240 Hz refresh rate. The Agon PD27 is VESA DisplayHDR 400 certified too and will be available from this month for US$799.99.

AOC has released another monitor, following the three that it announced last month. This time, the company has gone for a gaming monitor, and one created in partnership with Porsche Design. Unsurprisingly, the monitor has an industrial design, especially its roll cage-inspired stand. Incidentally, the height and tilt of the stand can be adjusted.

The Porsche Design AOC AGON PD27, to give it its full name, is more than just a fancy stand, though. At the heart of the PD27 lies a 27-inch panel, which operates natively at 2,560 x 1,440 pixels and a maximum refresh rate of 240 Hz. Additionally, AOC and Porsche Design promise 1 ms grey-to-grey and 0.5 ms MPRT pixel response times, along with a peak brightness of 550 nits. The monitor also features RGB lighting, and a projector displays the Porsche or Agon logos.

The Agon PD27 is VESA DisplayHDR 400 certified too and should cover 89% of the Adobe RGB colour space. The monitor also supports AMD FreeSync Premium Pro to minimise image tearing, although it can only reach 240 Hz over DisplayPort 1.4. By contrast, HDMI 2.0 limits the Agon PD27 to 144 Hz. The monitor offers four USB 3.2 Type-A ports though, with 5 W stereo speakers and an IR remote control in attendance, too.

The Porsche Design AOC AGON PD27 will be available to order from later this month in multiple markets, including Europe, the UK and the US. The monitor will retail for €799, £719.99 and US$799.99, respectively.
