AOC has a new monitor out, the Agon AG322QCX, and it’s built for gaming. The Agon AG322QCX is on the wider end of the spectrum, measuring in at 32 inches, with a 1800R curve, but still offering proper QHD resolution at 2560 x 1440.
The increased resolution is nice to see from a widescreen monitor like this, which tend to max out at 1080 pixels tall — although I wouldn’t complain if the AG322QCX had a few more few vertical pixels either.
Moving on to the more gaming-focused specs, AG322QCX has a 144Hz refresh rate, a 4ms response time, and support for AMD’s FreeSync technology. There are definitely monitors with higher refresh rates and faster response times out there, but for most gamers, what’s on offer here should be plenty for most users. Slightly more disappointing is the choice of AMD’s FreeSync over Nvidia’s G-Sync, which tends to be preferable, especially given Nvidia’s prevalence in the GPU scene.
On the port front, the AG322QCX has a VGA port, two HDMI ports, two Display Ports, and two USB 3.0 ports, which means that you should be able to plug it in to almost any modern computer. (Sadly, there’s no USB-C.)
The AG322QCX is available now for $429.99.
