AOC is typically associated with affordable value-for-money monitors but the company has bigger ambitions. AOC wants to sell premium gaming monitors and has vowed to release a total of 10 gaming monitors in the AGON line in the near future.

The first addition to the AGON line-up is 27-inch AG271QX, which is based on a TN panel. TN panels are not exactly known to produce excellent picture quality but they are fast. AOC says that the panel has 1 ms response time, 2560x1440 pixels, and AMD FreeSync (up to 144 Hz). The combination of these factors makes it an excellent choice for gaming, says AOC.

The design borrows elements from other gaming monitors. Distinct, angular red panels hide the range of input ports. The stand is height, swivel and tilt adjustable. The panel is also flicker-free to ensure minimal eye strain after long gaming sessions.

AOC says that the monitor comes bundled with a "QuickSwitch Controller" that you can use to switch between various picture modes and adjust picture settings such as brightness, contrast, and more.

The compnay has yet to release full specifications on AG271QX but says that it will be available in June 2016 for 599 Euro.
