AOC released a 24-inch gaming monitor that supports Nvidia's G-SYNC technology, the AOC G2460PG. This could be a great investment for PC gamers who want to squeeze every frame they can out of their favorite title. Of course, you'll need a Nvidia "Kepler" GTX GPU in order to receive the benefits that the G-SYNC tech provides.
Nvidia introduced its G-SYNC technology back in October 2013, promising that frame tears, stutters and video lag will be "a thing in the past." The tech, which is a module embedded in the monitor, communicates with the Nvidia GTX GPU so that frames are displayed the second they're rendered. This results in smoother gameplay and better visuals.
"This advanced AOC gaming display (2460PG) gives competitive gamers a serious edge so they can focus on the game without the distraction of screen tearing, ghosting or latency," the press release said. "This means gamers receive critical images, such as enemy movement, on screen the moment they are rendered for greater accuracy and a serious gaming advantage over competitors."
This 24-inch monitor has a typical brightness of 300 cd/m2, a typical contrast ratio of 80,000,000:1 and a typical response time of 5 ms (OD: 1 ms). It also features 16.7 million colors, 170 degree (H) and 160 degree (V) viewing angles, and a recommended resolution of 1920 x 1080. The display is also capable of up to 144 Hz refresh rates.
The new gaming monitor also includes AOC's DialPoint Custom Crosshair technology that provides six custom crosshair settings as well as DisplayPort input and five USB ports for connecting peripherals. The company also mentions USB 3.0, an ergonomic stand that can pivot 90 degrees, Nvidia 3D Vision and "energy-saving" features like W-LED backlighting.
Gamers wanting this new G-SYNC monitor from AOC will need $449 before heading over to Micro Center to place the order.
