AOC announced two new gaming monitors that will be added to the established AGON line. The new 27-inch AG271FZ2 and 24.5-inch AG251FZ2 LCD panels will come rocking AMD's FreeSync tech and feature a refresh rate of 240Hz. The highlight of these new monitors are the response timings, coming in at just 0.5ms. These new displays are crazy fast and are ideal for a new PC gaming build.
The only drawback is the resolution at just 1080p. More gamers are looking at 1440p and even 4K for gaming. There's also the FreeSync technology, but here's hoping both the AG271FZ2 and AG251FZ2 will be added to the list of Freesync displays that work just fine with NVIDIA GPUs to let you run butter-smooth games with no stuttering or screen tearing. You can pre-order the AG271FZ2 and AG251FZ2 right now for $380 and $330, respectively.
Gotta Go Fast
A blazing-fast 240Hz refresh rate and AMD's FreeSync tech make AOC's latest monitors worth a look for gamers obsessed with speed.
