Samsung, LG and other manufacturers have already announced AMD FreeSync monitors, and AOC is now joining the party with two new gaming monitors. The 24" G2460PF and the slightly bigger 27" G2770PF.

The principle behind FreeSync is clever. It is made possible by the DisplayPort connector. The concept of “adaptive sync” ensures that monitor and graphics card are always in sync even when FPS/Hz fluctuates in games, providing smooth, lag-free images.
But AMD and Nvidia are not exactly cooperating so each company has made its own proprietary version named AMD FreeSync and Nvidia G-Sync, respectively. This also means that you will have to pick your new gaming monitor based on the brand of your PC graphics card.
AOC votes in favor of AMD’s FreeSync with its two new 24 and 272 monitors. Both monitors will offer a maximum refresh rate of 144Hz (FreeSync works between 30 and 144Hz) and 1 ms response time. Both monitors offer a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels, a TN panel, and flicker-free LED backlighting.
The two monitors, G2460PF and G2770PF, should hit stores in Europe in July for around £229 and £279, respectively. It is unclear if the monitors will launch in the US. More specifications are available here and here.
