AOC has emailed HEXUS today to tell us about its new g2460Pg monitor. This is a 24-inch gaming monitor which features the "innovative NVIDIA G-SYNC technology". As a whole, this monitor's specs should mean you can game without any unpleasant lag, motion blur or screen tearing when using a suitable Nvidia GPU.

The AOC g2460Pg is based upon the g2460Pqu, launched in April, augmented with the Nvidia G-SYNC hardware and with a few other minor changes. The AOC g2460Pg monitor's specifications are as follows:

  • Panel type: WLED / TN, 16.7 million colours
  • Resolution: 1920x1080@144Hz
  • Panel Size: 24-inch / 61 cm
  • Brightness: 350 cd/m2
  • Contrast Ratio: Dynamic 80M:1, Typical 1000:1 (CR)
  • Viewing Angle: 170(H)/160(V) (CR≧ 10)
  • Response Time: Up to 1 ms
  • Scanning Frequency: H: 30-160 KHz (DVI-D), 30-83 KHz (other), V: 50-146 Hz (DVI-D), 50-76 Hz (other)
  • Pixel Frequency: 330MHz (DVI-D) / 165MHz
  • Connections: 1x DisplayPort, 2x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0
  • Stand/mount: 130mm height adjustment, pivot, swivel and tilt (-5/+22 degrees), 100 x 100 mm VESA capable
  • Power consumption: On 27.7W, Standby/Off 0.5W
  • Features: Nvidia G-SYNC, e-Saver, Eco Mode, i-Menu
  • Dimensions: 565.4 x 393.6 (+130) x 244.6 mm with stand, 6.54Kg
  • Warranty: 3 years

At a headline refresh rate of 144Hz the AOC g2460Pg redraws its screen more than twice as frequently as a conventional 60Hz display. This is said to help reduce eye fatigue, the possibility of screen tearing and stuttering. Combine these capabilities with an integrated Nvidia G-SYNC module and "the monitor takes gaming to a new level by synchronising the display refresh rates to the (Nvidia) graphics card's GPU". AOC say this helps create a "true real-time experience".

Remember that Nvidia's G-SYNC system needs a suitable GPU to pair up with this monitor. These include any GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST or higher Kepler-based GPU. Also SLI configurations work seamlessly with G-SYNC enabled monitors.

AOC has informed us that the g2460Pg 24-inch gaming monitor will be available, starting from next month, at a recommended retail price of £369 including VAT. That price seems to represent a £169 premium on the AOC g2460Pgu (£199 at SCAN), I found during a quick price search.

Meanwhile we are still waiting for the first DisplayPort Adaptive-Sync certified monitors to arrive, hopefully before the end of 2014.

Anyone with experience with a Nvidia G-Sync monitor, can you recommend this over the previous model? £170 premium is a lot…
At that sort of premium you'd probably be better off just spending it on additional GPU power so that you don't suffer the frame rate drops in the first place.
Can't wait until 30"+ 4k gsyncs come out… bring it! :)
It's pointless now, since the new Display port standard already has all the features of G-Sync.
1080p = fail
TN panel = fail
