AGON by AOC, the leading brand for gaming monitors and IT accessories, today proudly announced two new 34-inch (86 cm) monitors. The AOC GAMING CU34G2XE/BK and the faster high-spec CU34G2XP/BK are both affordable technical marvels that offer players a panoramic gaming view with powerful performance.
At the heart of these monitors is a 1500R curved VA panel with WQHD resolution (3440 x 1440, 21:9 aspect ratio). This panel offers an unprecedented level of depth in gaming worlds. In addition, the CU34G2XE/BK excels with a refresh rate of 144 Hz and HDR10 support. The CU34G2XP/BK goes one step further with a stunning 180 Hz refresh rate and DisplayHDR 400 support combined with response times as fast as 1ms GtG. These features ensure that gameplay images are extra vivid and fluid.
CU34G2XE/BK: Seamless large-format gaming.
The CU34G2XE/BK features a 1500R curved VA panel with WQHD resolution (3440 x 1440) and brightness that does justice to game graphics. This gaming monitor has an impressive refresh rate of 144 Hz and achieves a remarkable 1ms MPRT with the Motion Blur Reduction (MBR) feature. This effectively makes ghosting a thing of the past. What makes it all even more attractive is that the CU34G2XE/BK is equipped with HDR10 support. This enhances the vividness of colors and immerses the gamer in a whole new level of realistic visuals. The DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0 connectivity also ensure versatility in terms of connectivity. The CU34G2XE/BK is designed with both functionality and flexibility in mind. It comes with a simple yet sturdy stand (including tilt adjustment), allowing users to find the perfect viewing angle at all times. Moreover, monitor arms such as AOC’s AM420B can be used for added flexibility thanks to the VESA 100 bracket.
CU34G2XP/BK: The star of the show
For those striving for top performance, you can get started with the CU34G2XP/BK. With an increased refresh rate of 180 Hz, this monitor promises an even smoother gaming experience. Thanks to pixel overdrive settings, the monitor achieves response times of up to 1ms GtG, suitable for competitive gaming. However, the robust CU34G2XP/BK is not just about speed. For example, the monitor also features VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification, which ensures deep contrasts and vivid images. In short, the CU34G2XP/BK offers an unparalleled visual feast. Moreover, the response time of 1ms MPRT, achievable via MBR mode, enables low pixel persistence. Therefore, the monitor is ideal for competitive gaming scenarios where every millisecond counts. Like its little brother, this model uses an impressive 99% sRGB color gamut. That makes it a versatile choice not only for gaming, but also for content creators or tasks outside of gaming. The CU34G2XP/BK offers an extra boost in terms of connectivity. With two DisplayPort 1.4 and two HDMI connectors, users can connect multiple devices simultaneously. The ergonomic stand (with height, tilt and swivel adjustments) makes every activity an ergonomic dream.
Common features: More than just performance
Both models offer Adaptive-Sync support, while the CU34G23XP/BK also offers AMD FreeSync Premium support, for a gaming experience without hiccups and interruptions. Thanks to low input lag, every action is displayed almost instantly on the screen. Furthermore, both models support AOC’s custom G-Menu software, which allows users to easily control OSD functions. With Flicker-Free technology, Low Blue Mode and Shadow Control, AOC protects users’ eyes. The features also provide an advantage in poorly lit gaming scenarios. Finally, each model supports Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture, allowing users to view two sources simultaneously.
