AOC has informed us that it has introduced the CQ32G1, a 31.5” (80 cm) QHD monitor. Aimed at casual gamers looking for crisper gameplay, the CQ32G1 raises the bar with the higher resolution of 2560×1440 pixels, and offers the same 144 Hz refresh rate, 1 ms response time as well as AMD FreeSync support just like its Full HD G1 Series siblings.
According to the press release, the AOC CQ32G1 is equipped with a 31.5” (80 cm) VA panel, with a 144 Hz refresh rate and 1 ms response time. Thanks to its QHD resolution, gamers will benefit from one of the most logical increments in screen resolution, which makes the image sharp and comfortable to use without any scaling required.
The CQ32G1’s narrow bezels (2 mm), slim black borders (5 mm) and the frameless design make this display an excellent contender for a multi-monitor set-up. Textured, red and black accents, and a V-shaped, tilt-enabled stand complement the frameless panel for a refined look. The physical immersion is achieved by the encapsulating and aggressive 1800R curvature. Besides, the 144 Hz refresh rate with 1 ms response time delivers the fastest visual feedback and the “connected feel” to the game, free of tear, stutter and perceivable motion blur thanks to variable refresh rate technology AMD FreeSync.
With the 3000:1 static contrast ratio and 124% sRGB gamut coverage, visual content ranging from photos, movies, videos to fast-paced games comes to life and becomes highly enjoyable. The large size of the display and its wide viewing angles of 178°/178° also make the display usable for multiple people simultaneously. 2x HDMI 1.4 as well as 1x DisplayPort 1.2 inputs enable connecting multiple sources.
AOC’s Flicker-Free technology and LowBlue Mode allows longer gaming sessions with less eye strain (moderate use is still advised). To better differentiate opponents, gamers can adjust colour saturation and grey levels with 20 levels of detail with AOC Game Color. AOC Dial Point (on-screen aiming indicator) also helps gamers with their accuracy and aiming where an in-game crosshair is lacking.
The AOC CQ32G1 monitor is currently available for an MSRP of 399€/£359.
