For a number of years, several monitor manufacturers have a response time of 1 millisecond on their gaming monitors. Next year, AOC seems to take the next step with two new high-end gaming monitors. The two 27-inch 1440p curved TN monitors have a response time of only 0.5 ms, according to the manufacturer.
AG273QCX and the AG273QCG
There are two versions, the AG273QCX with FreeSync 2 and the AG273QCG with G-Sync variant. Both are largely similar, but with the FreeSync 2 version, HDR is supported and with the G-Sync variant, the refresh rate by 165 Hz is marginally higher. The latter is also priced at € 100 higher, both will be available in the second quarter of 2018.
