Porsche Design and AOC has partnered once again to introduce the first ever Porsche Design AOC AGON gaming monitor called the PD27. The PD27 is inspired by Porsche’s long history in race car and it’s packed high octane specifications (27” QHD panel, 240 Hz refresh rate, 0.5 ms MPRT), eye-catching, racing-influenced design and a wide range of functionalities to be utilized both on a daily basis and during long gaming sessions. Even before the official launch, the new monitor was honoured with the Red Dot Award 2020.
The monitor’s design is accented by the silver-coloured stand element, shaped like the roll cage of a race car. This stand not only looks great but also provides the user the stability, durability and endurance. Another cool feature on the PD27 is it can project its logos on the table in different colours, and light up the back of the display to elevate the gaming environment.
The PD27 displays images in QHD resolution (2560×1440) and produces a 240 Hz refresh rate, perfect for demanding players who wants the best high resolution and fast refresh rate. The 240 Hz refresh rate reduces the perceivable motion blur, while the 1 ms GtG and 0.5 ms MPRT pixel response times guarantee a clear, ghosting-free gaming experience. The monitor is also packed with AMD’s FreeSync Premium Pro which let serious gamers experience smooth gameplay, free of tearing. The VA panel’s high brightness of 550 nits ensures undisturbed gameplay at any lighting conditions.
The gaming monitor is also certified with VESA’s DisplayHDR 400, providing vivid, lifelike colours and a wide dynamic range that allows users to immerse themselves in the simulated world. Additionally, a very tight curvature of 1000R (1 m radius) surrounds and encapsulates the user, a particularly great feature for the sim-racing community.
A unique designed wireless (IR) keypad, shaped like a centre console, is also provided for users to quickly access monitor settings or gaming presets. In the audio department, the monitor packs with a 5W stereo speakers with DTS sound so users can enjoy the roar of the Porsche race cars in racing games. Ports on the monitor is amazing thanks to a 4-port USB 3.2 hub, 2x HDMI 2.0 and 2x DisplayPort 1.4 inputs.
The Porsche Design AOC AGON PD27 will be available mid of November 2020 in select Porsche Design stores, specialist retailers and online at www.porsche-design.com and selected retail online shops with an RRP of EUR 799.
