presenters on this topic
AOC is expanding the range of Agon gaming monitors with the high-quality 34-inch Agon Pro AG344UXM. The 21:9 UWQHD monitor with a refresh rate of 170Hz supports DisplayHDR 1000 and provides USB-C inputs with a KVM switch.
According to the manufacturer, the Agon Pro AG344UXM from AOC is a high-end monitor for aspiring gamers. The IPS 21:9 panel with a high resolution of 3440 x 1440 pixels is equipped with a small LED backlight that delivers up to 1,000 nits of peak brightness and, above all, 1,152 local dimming zones. Thus, the AG344UXM is certified for VESA DisplayHDR 1000 and is designed to optimally display areas of the image very bright and deep shadows at the same time.
The 170Hz refresh rate and 1ms GtG response time should ensure games without tearing or stuttering. Six game modes and other extras such as a crosshair overlay can be selected via the QuickSwitch wired remote control or the G-Menu software. The display can also be adjusted according to the user’s preferences by adjusting the height. A logo projector and RGB LED light strips are integrated on the back for optics, and 8-watt speakers with DTS for good audio without headphones.
Games and productive work
Agon Pro AG344UXM should be suitable not only for gaming on a computer, but also for productive work, for example with video or graphics applications. This should enable not only higher resolution, but also 10-bit color depth, 99 percent DCI-P3 color space coverage and 100 percent sRGB.
HDMI 2.1, DisplayPort 1.4, a USB-C connection with DisplayPort functionality, and a 90W power delivery are available for connections. An integrated KVM switch and four-port USB hub with USB-B upload port allow two computers to be connected simultaneously, such as a gaming PC and a laptop, with control via a range of monitor-connected input devices. Picture-by-Picture mode is also offered.
The 34-inch Agon Pro AG344UXM should be available from July and will cost €1,849 (RRP).
