Expanding its product portfolio, AOC has launched two curved gaming monitors that offer an immersive gaming experience. Part of the company’s AGON line-up, the displays also come with certain design elements that make them stand out from regular computer monitors. These include a funky-looking tri-leg stand with both tilt and height adjustment, and a ring of RGB lights on the back that can be used to provide ambient illumination.

The first of AOC’s two gaming monitors is the AG273QCG. The 27-inch monitor has a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels and a 1000:1 contrast ratio. The screen also features a refresh rate of 165Hz and a response time of 1ms. With support for 16.7 million colors, the AC273QCG comes with twin integrated speakers with an output of 2W each. For connectivity, the monitor has one HDMI 1.4 port and one DisplayPort 1.2. According to a report by The Verge, the monitor is priced at $650 (approximately Rs 46,200) and will be available on Amazon and Newegg in the United States.
