AOC has added the AGON AG493UCX model to their AGON line of gaming monitors.
The monitor has a 49" diagonal and 4K resolution with a Super Ultra-Wide aspect ratio of 32:9 (with a resolution of 5120 x 1440 pixels). The panel type is VA, which promises increased contrast ratios against those typically found in IPS panels (3000:1, in this case). AOC says the monitor supports 120 Hz refresh rates with a 1 ms (MPRT) response times with MBR backlight. It is also compatible with VRR technologies such as FreeSync and G-Sync.
Display brightness is quoted at 550 cd/m², making it compatible with the VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification but not the more demanding DisplayHDR 600 certification. The display is factory-calibrated and ships with a guaranteed dE <2, and coverage for 16.7 millions colors across a 93% DCI-P3 gamut coverage (and 121% sRGB coverage).
I/O is handled by 2x DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.0, 1x USB type-C, 3x USB ports and 1x an audio output. 2x 5 W speakers are built in to the screen and the stand offers tilt, height and swivel adjustments.
AOC has not disclosed the price of the AG493UCX yet.
