Amsterdam, 30 November 2023 – AGON by AOC – one of the world’s leading gaming monitor1 and IT accessories brands – proudly unveils two new 34″ (86 cm) gaming monitors for ultrawide aficionados: the AOC GAMING CU34G2XE/BK and its faster high-spec sibling, the CU34G2XP/BK. These monitors have been meticulously designed to push the boundaries of immersive gaming while delivering outstanding value. The CU34G2XE/BK and CU34G2XP/BK are both affordable spectacles of engineering, offering players a panoramic gaming vista with high-performance figures.
At the core of these monitors lies a 1500R curved VA panel that boasts a WQHD resolution (3440×1440, 21:9 aspect ratio) delivering an unprecedented level of depth to gaming worlds. While the CU34G2XE/BK excels with its 144 Hz refresh rate and HDR10 support, the CU34G2XP/BK pushes the envelope with response times up to 1 ms GtG and an astounding 180 Hz refresh rate paired with DisplayHDR 400 support. These features ensure that gameplay remains vibrant, and motion stays impressively smooth.
CU34G2XE/BK: Seamless gaming on a grand scale
Bearing the promise of uninterrupted gaming, the CU34G2XE/BK comes equipped with a 1500R curved VA panel in WQHD (3440×1440) resolution with a clarity that does justice to game graphics. This gaming monitor is primed for smooth gameplay with its impressive 144 Hz refresh rate. Notably, through the MBR (Motion Blur Reduction) function, the monitor achieves a remarkable 1 ms MPRT, effectively making ghosting a concern of the past. Adding to its appeal, the CU34G2XE/BK supports HDR10, thus allowing it to receive HDR signal. This feature amplifies the vibrancy of colours and immerses the gamer in truly lifelike visuals, taking gaming to a whole new level of realism. Connectivity is ensured with 1x DisplayPort 1.4 and 1x HDMI 2.0 ports. The CU34G2XE/BK is designed with both functionality and flexibility in mind. It comes with a simple yet sturdy stand that offers tilt adjustment, allowing users to find the perfect viewing angle. Additionally, it supports VESA 100 mount, providing the option to use monitor arms such as AOC’s AM420B for extra flexibility.
CU34G2XP/BK: The star of the show takes centre stage
For those who crave peak performance and demand an extra edge in their gaming experience, the CU34G2XP/BK commands the limelight. With a boosted 180 Hz refresh rate, it promises an even smoother gaming experience. Thanks to its pixel overdrive capabilities, this monitor achieves response times up to 1 ms GtG, showcasing its speed fit for competitive gaming. However, the beefier CU34G2XP/BK is not just about speed; it’s also certified with VESA DisplayHDR 400 ensuring deep contrasts and vivid visuals in single player, story-driven games or slower-paced titles, the CU34G2XP/BK offers a visual feast that’s second to none. Moreover, its 1 ms MPRT, achievable through the MBR mode, allows low pixel persistence, making it ideal for competitive gaming scenarios where every millisecond counts. Just like its sibling, this model boasts an impressive 99% sRGB colour space, making it a versatile choice not only for gaming but also for content creators or tasks outside gaming. This model offers an additional connectivity boost with 2x DisplayPort 1.4 and 2x HDMI 2.0 ports to connect multiple sources. Beyond gaming, the ergonomic stand (featuring height, tilt, and swivel adjustments) is poised to make any activity an ergonomic dream.
Common grounds: beyond just performance
Both models bring to the table an Adaptive-Sync support for a tear-free gaming adventure, while the CU34G23XP/BK features AMD FreeSync Premium support. Gamers will appreciate the Low Input Lag, with every action practically mirrored instantly on screen. Both models support AOC’s bespoke G-Menu software to control its OSD, enhancing the user experience. With Flicker-Free technology, Low Blue Mode, and Shadow Control, AOC safeguards users’ eyes while granting them an edge in dimly-lit gaming scenarios. Each model further supports Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture modes to show two sources simultaneously.
The AOC GAMING CU34G2XE/BK with 144 Hz will be available for purchase from December 2023, at an MSRP of £299, while its sibling CU34G2XP/BK with 180 Hz will be available from mid-December 2023, at an MSRP of £339.
