AOC is releasing one other mini LED gaming monitor, the Agon Pro AG344UXM with a 34-inch in-plane switching (IPS) panel able to reaching an eye-searing 1,000 nits brightness stage. It’s a comparatively quick and responsive show too—it sports activities a decent 170Hz refresh fee and a low 1ms response time (gray-to-gray), matched to a 3440×1440 decision.
One of the principle promoting factors on this mannequin is the mini LED backlighting. As we have written about earlier than, mini LEDs are a lot smaller than conventional LEDs. This allows producers to cram extra LEDs behind the panel, which in flip can each crank up the brightness and permit for tighter management of the total array native dimming (FALD) scheme.
In this case, there are 1,152 dimming zones. The profit of getting so many dimming zones is it may drastically scale back blooming, in any other case generally known as the halo impact. This is where mild from a picture bleeds over to the encircling space.
Putting that brightness to good use, the AG344UXM is DisplayHDR 1000 licensed. Other options embrace 178-degree viewing angles (horizontal and vertical), 10-bit shade depth, a large shade gamut (99 p.c protection of the DCI-P3 shade house and 100% of sRGB), adaptive sync assist, a pair of built-in 8W DTS-enhanced audio system, RGB lighting, and a three-sided “frameless” design.
What about that neat trick we teased within the headline? The AG344UXM has an built-in KVM swap.
“The AG344UXM features a 4-port USB hub with a USB-B upstream port. In practice, a keyboard and mouse connected to the AG344UXM’s USB hub can be toggled with the KVM switch to control the device connected via the USB-C port (e.g. a laptop) or via the USB-B upstream port (e.g. a desktop PC), providing total control over multiple devices with a clean desk,” AOC explains.
That USB-C port helps 90W energy supply too. Users may also discover DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.1 inputs.
AOC says the Agon Pro AG344UXM will probably be obtainable in July for £1,429.99. There’s no phrase but on when or if will probably be obtainable within the US market and different territories outdoors Europe.
