The Q3279VWF is a new 32-inch monitor by AOC, launching in November. The display will set purchasers back £249 (about $300), but there are some great specifications that make the price tag all the more enticing. We're looking at a QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution, AMD FreeSync support and everything contained within a slim package.
1440p is becoming the sweet spot for gamers, making the leap from 1080p without requiring incredibly expensive GPUs to power 4K content. And at 32 inches, this AOC panel will feel large without becoming pixelated. Here's a closer look at the Q3279VWF specifications:
- Resolution: 2560 x 1440.
- Refresh rate: 60Hz.
- Response time: 5ms.
- Panel: MVA.
- Colors: 1.07 billion.
- Contrast ratio: 3000:1.
- Ports: DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI, VGA.
The display isn't meant to take on the Agon series, which you'll need to check out if you seek an AOC monitor with high refresh rates and advanced features for gaming. That said, anyone on the hunt for a new 32-inch panel will find the Q3279VWF to be a capable unit for both work and play, especially when paired with a compatible GPU for FreeSync. As noted already, this new display will go on sale in November for £249.
