With the Agon Pro AG344UXM, AOC presents a new high-end gaming monitor with a rich feature set for ambitious gamers.
The AOC Agon Pro AG344UXM in ultrawide format with a 34-inch (approx. 86 cm) screen diagonal in a 21:9 aspect ratio with UWQHD resolution (3,440 x 1,440 pixels) relies on a colorful IPS panel with a color depth of 10 bits and a color space coverage of 99 percent DCI-P3 and 100 percent sRGB. The mini LED backlight offers 1,152 dimming zones with up to 1,000 nits of brightness and a matching DisplayHDR 1000 certification for a particularly high-contrast image with corresponding content.
A refresh rate of 170 Hertz and a response time of one millisecond (grey-to-grey) is achieved, paired with Adaptive Sync to prevent synchronization-related image breaks and stuttering. In line with this, HDMI 2.1 is also on board, as is DisplayPort 1.4. There’s also a USB-C input that supports full-width 170 hertz, 10-bit color signaling while also offering 90 watts of USB Power Delivery. There is also a 4-port USB hub with a USB-B upstream port and a KVM switch for connecting and easily switching between multiple devices.
More features, price and release
In terms of ergonomics, there is the option of tilting, rotating and height-adjusting the monitor by 130 millimeters using the fixed metal base. Also included are two built-in DTS speakers, each with 8 watts, and LightFX RGB lighting on the back, which, like the projection light, can be adjusted on the underside.
The OSD settings of the AG344UXM can be adjusted via the wired remote control (QuickSwitch), the 5-way joystick on the back or the G-Menu software. For example, six game modes or special settings such as AOC Game Color (saturation), Dial Point (crosshair overlay), FPS counter or LowBlue mode can be selected here. The AOC Agon Pro AG344UXM, intended for both demanding gamers and content creators, will be available from July 2022 for 1,849.00 euros (RRP). In the PCGH price comparison there is no listing yet.
