Derived from ancient Greek, AGON stands for competition, clash and antagonism. These are the strong characteristics that AOC, a market-leading display manufacturer claims for their upcoming gaming monitor line-up. The AGON series has been created to deliver the utmost gaming features and outstanding designs to the vast community of professional and hardcore gamers.
During the year 2016, AOC plans to launch ten variants of its gaming monitors with either IPS or TN panels, each with premium technology to provide gamers with the most versatile gaming experience possible. The AGON series includes both standard and curved models with Flicker FREE technology developed by AOC; all of them enriched with either NVIDIA G-SYNC or AMD FreeSync technology.
With modern-day gamers’ increasing demand for visual precision and image quality in gaming monitors, it is essential for gaming monitors to be engineered not only with the latest technology but also exquisite exterior designs. Yet the AGON series seeks to reach above and beyond the status quo. Response times of 1ms (TN), 144Hz and higher refresh rates, height-adjustability, speakers and USB 3.0 ports are default features for this new line-up. With sizes ranging from 24″ 16:9 to 35″ ultra-wide, there will also be curved monitors, and resolutions from Full HD all the way to 4K. The combination of materials on the rear of the monitor will give the AGON an elegant and stylish finish, to perfectly supplement high-end gaming battle stations.
A launch event for the AGON takes place in Beijing today and the all-star Natus Vincere Dota 2 squad will be there to present the new monitor line to the press and PR professionals in attendance. The first model of the AGON series will be available in the European market in June.
