Simply just a few months within the past, AOC helped bring twisted 34in superwidescreens to an cheap and generous level for gamers with the CU34G2X. But what if a 144Hz refresh and mere G-sync compatibility are no longer adequate? AOC has an different for you within the shape of the AGON AG353UCG, which has the the same resolution but a a bit of of increased 35in display camouflage size. Extra importantly, nonetheless, it has a 200Hz refresh, is fully G-Sync Ideal enabled, and helps DisplayHDR 1000 too. The take care of? It’s somewhat costly…
Virtually all twisted shows we’ve seen utilize VA panel technology and the AOC AGON AG353UCG is rarely any diversified. It also sports the identical old 3,440 x 1,440 resolution we get in 21:9 facet shows. Being a VA panel, the honour is a generally excessive 2,500:1. But brightness is also somewhat excessive at 1,000cd/m2. This permits the AG353UCG to boast DisplayHDR 1000 compatibility, which is surely one of the foremost highest performance ranges all over the HDR10 long-established. The gamut also encompasses a huge 133 per cent of the sRGB shade blueprint.
One other incompatibility to most VA panels is the pixel response time of 2ms. It is doubtless you’ll per chance also wonder why here is fantastic when a full bunch VA panels now quote 1ms. The acknowledge is that here is obliging gray-to-gray response, no longer MPRT, so here’s an awfully shortly panel by VA requirements. It also gives NVIDIA G-sync Ideal alongside its 200Hz refresh, so has NVIDIA hardware internal to offer essentially among the finest-attainable adaptive synchronisation when the utilize of GeForce playing cards. It also helps 1,000cd/m2 HDR when gaming, which most shows don’t.
For this kind of orderly, huge display camouflage, there’s a stress-free selection of adjustments within the market, at the side of swivel, top raising or lowering, and tilting. The port allocation looks decent on paper, with two DisplayPorts and one HDMI, plus a quad-port USB 3.1 Gen1 hub. There’s also a MiniUSB port for an external dangle an eye on puck and further audio enter for a mic slither-by out of your PC. But USB-C is fundamental by its absence, and our sample had surely one of the foremost DisplayPorts disabled.
As adverse to these omissions, the AG353UCG looks top of the heap in every operate. But, as we hinted, here is no longer a low-price display camouflage, with supreme ASUS’s suspiciously the same ROG SWIFT PG35VQ coming in at a increased mark of £2,500. If truth be told, that’s an understatement, because for this display camouflage’s princely mark of £1,850, it’s doubtless you’ll per chance maybe almost prefer four AOC CU34G2X shows for the the same quantity. The ask is, would you would like to? Let’s uncover.
