AOC's New Gaming Monitor Does 144Hz

This week, display maker AOC launched a new monitor designed with gamers in mind, the AOC G2460PQU. The 24-inch panel promises crystal clear images, reduced input lag and more frames per second thanks to its 144 Hz refresh rate and its 1 ms GTG response time.

"With 144 Hz frame rate, you get those critical missing images on the screen which shows enemy movement in ultra-smooth motion so you can easily target them," reads the product page. "You won't have to put up with input lag and screen tearing with this AOC gaming display."

According to the company, the AOC G2460PQU allows users to switch between seven different screen sizes: 17-inch Pillar Box (5:4), 19-inch Pillar Box (5:4), 19-inch Widescreen (16:10), 21.5-inch Widescreen (16:9), 22-inch Widescreen (16:10), 23-inch Widescreen (16:9) and 24-inch Widescreen (16:9). There's also a four-way adjustable stand so that the user can change the monitor height by 130 mm, swivel left and right, tilt the screen angle, and pivot 90 degrees to landscape or portrait view.

The specs show that the monitor has a dynamic contrast ratio of 80,000,000:1, a typical brightness of 350 cd/m2, up to 16.7 million colors and a 1920 x 1080 resolution. The panel also provides a number of ports including VGA, DVI-Dual Link, HDMI, DisplayPort, and four USB 2.0 ports, one of which can charge a connected smartphone or other devices.

"The VESA-compatible monitor can also be unscrewed from the stand and mounted to the wall," reads the company's PR. "Button controls are located on the underside of the display and dual USB ports are conveniently located on the right side of the panel. The monitor's back also has a hook to keep cables together and organized."

Obviously, the 144 Hz refresh rate is this display's biggest selling point. However, there are a number of gamer-focused monitors on the market with 1 ms GTG response times, making it hard to settle on just one model. These include BenQ's 24-inch  RL2460HT, which features a 1920 x 1080 resolution, a 12,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, an adjustable rotating stand and more for a lower price. Asus also has a line of gaming monitors with 144 Hz refresh rates and 1 ms response times.

The AOC G2460PQU is now available for $399.99 at national CE retailers. For more information about AOC's new monitor, head here.

    I do not like the buttons on the underside of the display on my current AOC monitor.

    "You won't have to put up with input lag and screen tearing with this AOC gaming display."

    Lolwut? Do these guys at AOC not know what V-Sync is? The only monitor that can handle v-sync off without screen tearing is the ASUS VG248QE with the G-Sync kit from Nvidia and those are sold out everywhere (as well as the kits).

    Claiming a monitor eliminates screen tearing when it's all reliant on the GPU settings... *shakes head*
