27" AOC AGON AG271QG gaming monitor benchmarks: color, brightness, price response, input and full specs review

The AOC AGON AG271QG has the Display Port and this is essential for NVIDIA cards to work with AMD FreeSync. For the extremely fast frame rates, the AOC AGON AG271QG has a maximum refresh rate of 165 Hz that allows smoother gameplay. In terms of pixel density, the AOC AGON AG271QG has an excellent density of 109 pixels-per-inch, resulting in sharper text and picture quality. The monitor panel has good viewing angles and offers better contrast and colors than TN panels. The monitor has a VESA mount. To compensate for graphically demanding games, the AOC AGON AG271QG has a very good low end adaptive refresh rate of 30 Hz that can adapt to more lower frame rate drops. For graphics color quality, the AOC AGON AG271QG has an excellent color depth of 8 -bit, resulting in smoother gradients and more accurate colors. It is worth noting that the AOC AGON AG271QG is a relatively old monitor. Without the AMD FreeSync support, this monitor is not compatible with AMD graphics cards. AOC AGON AG271QG has a total input lag of 16 ms, which is bad among the competition. The minimum response rate of AOC AGON AG271QG is 4 ms, which is can cause ghosting effects. The brightness of AOC AGON AG271QG is lower than other monitors. The monitor has an unimpressive contrast ratio of 1000 : 1. For the average response rate, the AOC AGON AG271QG scores 12 ms, which can cause motion blurring due to ineffective synchronization with the high refresh rate.
