AOC Introduces the G2868PQU Gaming Monitor – 4K TN Panel, 60 Hz, 1ms, 300 nits, FreeSync

AOC announces a brand-new gaming monitor, the 28″ (71.1 cm) G2868PQU with Ultra HD / 4K (3840×2160 pixels) resolution.

To meet the demands of gamers looking for crisp and vivid imagery and sharp gameplay, the display boasts a next-gen HDR-ready TN panel with 1 ms response time. The G2868PQU also supports AMD FreeSync which eliminates stutter and screen-tear caused by mismatched image frames between the graphics card and the monitor. All these features ensure a fluid, smooth 4K gaming experience. The monitor becomes available in Europe in March 2019.

The G2868PQU’s narrow bezels, red and black accents, as well as the angular 130 mm height-adjustable ergonomic stand underline its gaming-focussed build. This HDR-ready display is equipped with a new 28″ TN panel, covering 102% of sRGB and 82% of AdobeRGB color gamuts. Thus, users will not just see 4x as many details as on a Full HD display, but experience vivid colors and popping visuals as well. The image on the G2868PQU is extremely sharp thanks to a density of 157.35 ppi (pixel per inch). In addition, users of AMD GPUs can achieve a stutter and tear-free gameplay with less input lag and a refresh rate of up to 60Hz by utilizing AMD FreeSync.

 

Adjustable to its environment
The AOC G2868PQU looks minimalistic, yet offers a wide range of customisation. The sleek looking stand is adjustable to 130 mm in height, so users can position the monitor to their individual needs. Sunny or brightly-lit environments are no issue for the G2868PQU thanks to its high brightness of 300 nits. When used in low-light/night conditions, the Low Blue Mode helps reduce eye-fatigue.

Improved gaming focus
Just like the AGON series, the G2868PQU is also equipped with the following gaming-specific features in its on-screen menu:

  • With AOC’s Game Color, users can adjust the color saturation, over saturating the image if the content is dull-looking, or under-saturating for better grey levels.
  • With AOC’s Shadow Control, users can dial in shadow levels to brighten dark areas and vice versa to better see details in dark or too bright/washed-out areas without affecting the whole image.
  • AOC Game Modes, with specific adjustments for different game genres (FPS, Racing, RTS), plus three user customisable modes.
  • AOC Dial Point, where users can place an aiming indicator in FPS games that lack an in-game crosshair, so they can still aim precisely and accurately.

AOC’s G2868PQU will be available from March 2019 at an MSRP of £319 / 299 USD /299 EUR.
