What's the pokey bit on the side for? Headphone rack?
Why HDMI 1.4 and DP 1.2?
The Freesync AOC AGON AG322QCX 32“ model i would say it a better option.

Yes its 1440p panel but you get a VA panel 31.5” monitor with 4ms and 144hz at £519 vs Gsync £699 for 27" 4K but only 60hz and 4ms

Out of the 2 the Freesync version seems much better as a user experience and £180 cheaper?
Are any of these monitors HDR enabled?

Yes, judging from reviews of other models.

Nvidia GPUs don't speak Freesync, and AMD GPUs don't speak G-Sync (I think).

G-Sync & Freesync are just different enough to be incompatible.
