AOC and Porsche Design unveil new 240Hz gaming monitor

With a polished stainless steel stand and 240Hz refresh rate, this gaming monitor should pack plenty of style to match its apparent substance.

AOC and Porsche Design have teamed up to create a new gaming monitor that combines the latter’s eye for flashy design with the former’s gaming monitor pedigree.

The standout features of the display are its 240Hz, 27in LCD panel and tubular roll cage-inspired polished stainless steel stand.

As well as a finger-print magnet of a stand, the PD27 includes RGB lighting on the rear as well as mini AOC and Porsche logos that project onto your desk.

The display itself will have a 2,560 x 1,440 (1440p) resolution, making it one of a relatively low number of monitors to have a 240Hz refresh rate and a resolution higher than 1080p. It also boasts a 1ms GTG response time and 0.5ms motion picture response time (MPRT).

A VA type LCD panel has been chosen for this display, which allows it to offer an impressive 2500:1 contrast ratio. It also has a slightly extended colour gamut of 119 per cent sRGB but is only rated for DisplayHDR 400 HDR, which is the most basic level.

AOC is known for including wired remotes in its high-end AGON monitors, for controlling the onscreen display. With the PD27 it has stepped things up a notch, though, adding a snazzy looking wireless remote. Despite the modest screen size, the PD27 also has a curved screen, with a very tight 1000R radius.

The AOC AGON PD27 should be available in mid November for a rather eye-watering MSRP of £719.99.
