AOC introduces new segments for AGON gaming brand

After the launch of its new premium gaming monitor brand AGON earlier this year, AOC has announced that its lineup of displays will be separated into two categories: the AGON I and AGON II. The company created the two new segments mainly to differentiate the displays in terms of the anti-tearing chip used in them—the AGON I features the NVIDIA G-SYNC, while the AGON II comes with the Adaptive-Sync.

AOC’s AGON is a line of premium gaming monitors that focuses on high performance and convenient design, putting every competitive gamer’s vision to heart. Its mission is to bring beginner and professional gamers alike closer to their championship aspirations.

The new AGON displays set a high benchmark on their standard specifications to provide the ultimate gaming experience, including high refresh rates of 144Hz or above, and 1 millisecond response time, which ensures ultra-smooth movement on screen. While a luxury for many, 144Hz or above refresh rates are becoming standard for pro gamers striving for peak performance. Other benchmark specs include eye protection with AOC Flicker Free and Low Blue Light.

The displays also sport new, custom-designed AOC Ergo Enhance setup. The setup includes a brand new height- and angle-adjustable stand, and a built-in headset hanger, among others.

AGON I displays come equipped with NVIDIA G-SYNC, a piece of proprietary technology that smooths out gameplay, reduces input lag, eliminates ghosting, and prevents screen tearing.

Meanwhile, AGON II displays is armed with Adaptive-Sync, which is less expensive than NVIDIA G-SYNC but similarly smooths out gameplay, reduces input lag, and prevents screen tearing.

The lower cost and barely-noticeable compromise in performance makes the AGON II segment more accessible for the mass market. AGON II monitors also come with a few extra optimization tools, including but not limited to AOC Shadow Control, AOC Game Modes, and a QuickSwitch remote for fast lighting and contrast adjustment.

AGON displays are already scheduled for release throughout 2016 across the entire Asia Pacific region through AOC partners. Details about individual monitors and specifications can be viewed at the brand new AGON Asia Pacific website:
