AOC is working on their next generation of AGON gaming displays. These will be the 353 series, which will be the follow up to the 352 series which launched in February of last year. These new displays will keep the same 35-inch diagonal of the previous generation, but will be spec’d out with the best of what a VA panel can offer: 4K resolution, 1000 nits peak brightness in HDR mode, 1 ms response time, and a 200 Hz maximum refresh rate. There will also be support for AMD FreeSync 2 or NVIDIA’s G-Sync HDR along with 100% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space.
There will be two models in the AGON 353-series, one for AMD FreeSync 2 and the other for NVIDIA G-Sync HDR. The G-Sync HDR version will carry a 512-zone full array local dimming for increased contrast. Connections on the display include HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort 1.4, and a four port USB 3.1 (5 Gbps) hub. The G-Sync HDR version is expected to launch in June, no word on when the FreeSync 2 version will be available. We don’t have the pricing either, but base on the features and specs these displays are not going to be cheap!
