AOC Gaming Q27G2S / EU is the name of the latest monitor from the Agon by AOC range. According to the manufacturer, it is aimed at gamers who are upgrading from Full HD but still want to achieve high frame rates. The 27-inch screen, therefore, does not deliver 4K, but the so-called “QHD resolution”, i.e. 2,560 x 1,440 pixels. The IPS panel also offers a 10-bit color depth with 1.07 billion colors and a refresh rate – if connected via display port – of 165 Hz.
The manufacturer specifies the response time as 4 (GTG) or one (MPRT) milliseconds and the viewing angles as 178 degrees. While the brightness is 350 nits according to the product page, Agon by AOC states a dynamic contrast ratio of 80 million to 1. The static contrast ratio, on the other hand, is 1000: 1. The AOC Gaming Q27G2S / EU supports adaptive sync with a sync range of 48 to 165 Hz – G-Sync compatibility is also on board.
