AOC and Porsche Design have jointly introduced a new gaming monitor with an eye-catching design. Built using sandblasted aluminium, the AGON Pro PD27S has plenty of RGB lighting, along with a high refresh rate and colour-accurate IPS panel that measures 27-inches across.

AOC and Porsche Design have announced the AGON Pro PD27S, a 27-inch gaming monitor with an IPS panel that operates at 2,560 x 1,440 pixels and has an anti-reflective coating. Additionally, the gaming monitor has a 165 Hz refresh rate that it can overclock to 170 Hz when necessary, plus 1 ms response times (GtG). Predictably, AOC has included Adaptive Sync support to minimise image tearing, albeit only as low as 48 Hz.

AOC adds that the panel provides 350 nits of peak brightness when viewing SDR content, a 1,000:1 contrast ratio and is VESA DisplayHDR 400 certified. Hence, the AGON Pro PD27S should reach 400 nits when displaying HDR content. Moreover, AOC promises that the AGON Pro PD27S fully covers the sRGB colour space and manages 97% DCI-P3 coverage. Also, the gaming monitor has slim bezels on three sizes, plus a thicker bottom bezel on which the Porsche Design logo is printed.

Furthermore, AOC has included twin 5 W speakers, two DisplayPort 1.4 ports, two HDMI 2.0 connections, four USB 3.2 Type-A ports, and a 3.5 mm headphone. Unfortunately, DisplayPort 2.0, HDMI 2.1 and USB Type-C connectivity is lacking. Separately, AOC has equipped the AGON Pro PD27S with RGB lighting, customisable through the company's Light FX software.

According to AOC, the monitor's stand is inspired by sports cars, which it has manufactured using sandblasted aluminium. Incidentally, the stand supports can be pivoted as well as tilted, swivelled and is height adjustable by up to 150 mm. The Porsche Design AOC AGON Pro PD27S is orderable now for £429.99 in the UK and €539 in the Eurozone. You can find out more about the AGON Pro PD27S on AOC's website.
