AOC is readying a large 44.5in OLED gaming monitor under the Agon brand, featuring high refresh rate and brightness for optimum gaming experience.
According to Display Specifications, the Agon AG456UCZD carries a 44.5in UWQHD OLED rocking a 3440×1440 resolution topped by an anti-glare coating for low reflections in bright environments. This bad boy can reach up to 240Hz refresh rate with 0.3ms GtG response time, offering smooth and responsive gaming. Not forgetting a deep 1,500,000:1 contrast worthy of OLEDs, of course.
But that’s not all, as the AG456UCZD is also announced as supporting 100 per cent of the sRGB colour gamut alongside 98.5 per cent of DCI-P3 using its 10-bit panel. Colours that are said to come factory-calibrated to a Delta E below 2. Being a gaming-focused product, we can also expect some sort of adaptive sync technology implementation to keep screen tearing under control.
While the AG456UCZD can be used for HDR content consumption thanks to its 1,000 nits peak brightness (200 nits at 100 per cent APL), the aggressive 800R curve may be too much if you like watching your shows far from the screen. That said, for gaming it’s the complete opposite as the immersion should be top-notch with your field of view being fully filled. Just leave some desk space for that bulky rear.
To ensure a stable and uniform brightness regardless of window size, the screen also includes a feature to level the brightness in SDR mode.
Keeping with the excellent specs, this monitor houses two HDMI 2.0 ports capable of 100Hz refresh rate at maximum resolution using 4:2:2/4:2:0 chroma subsampling, one DisplayPort 1.4 with HBR3 delivering the rated 240Hz using 4:4:4 chroma format, plus one USB Type-C with 90W power delivery, DP Alt Mode and Display Stream Compression (DSC). A headphone jack and dual 8W speakers are also available if needed.
And for the multi-taskers out there, this beast offers a four-port USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A hub alongside a KVM switch, perfectly complimenting its Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture modes.
Lastly, regarding ergonomics, the AG456UCZD’s stand provides 100mm height, -15°/+15° swivel, and -5°/+15° tilt adjustments, with the possibility to use a 100mmx100mm VESA mount. AOC has also slapped its LightFX module on the back for some RGB flair, plus a built-in telescopic headset holder.
While AOC hasn’t announced any pricing yet, we expect this monitor to retail for around £1,300, since the similar LG UltraGear 45GR95QE and Corsair Xeneon Flex currently ask for £1,300 and £1,600, respectively. Whatever the case, it looks like a great gaming screen.
