AOC launched a new monitor in the company's gaming Agon line-up. The AG251FG not only supports NVIDIA G-Sync, but also a refresh rate of up to 240Hz.

Gamescom is the perfect time to reveal a new 240Hz monitor and that's exactly what AOC has done with the new Agon AG251FG. This display is available in Europe this week, offering an impressive 240Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time for optimal gaming performance. NVIDIA G-Sync, ULMB (helps tackle motion blur) and other features are bundled in for good measure.

The panel itself is a 24.5-inch TN display, rocking a resolution of 1080p. That's a bummer for those who enjoy 1440p and beyond, but with the Full HD experience it'll be easier for those with mid-spec gaming rigs to hit frame rates into the hundreds, which is supported by this screen. Those of you unfamiliar with G-Sync and are wondering why on Earth this should matter to you, if you have a compatible GPU from NVIDIA, this monitor will work with the graphics card to minimize screen tear and input lag.

As is the case with other Agon monitors, AOC is packing in a headset holder (I'm a massive fan of this on displays), the company's Ergo Dial Base, as well as eye-protection technologies for extended sessions. The display itself will set purchasers back $499 (£519) and is available in Europe this week.
