A fast and furious game screen
EXCLUSIVE LIFESTYLE brand Porsche Design and gaming monitor market leader AOC have collaborated to develop and launch the first-ever Porsche Design AOC AGON gaming monitor. Now available in the Philippines, the 27-inch (68.58 cm) PD27 is claimed to deliver race car-like high performance. It features a 27-inch QHD panel, 240Hz refresh rate and 0.5ms MPRT, as well as a sleek, eye-catching, racing-influenced design and a wide range of features to be used both in daily life and during long gaming sessions. Even before the official launch, the unique design of this new monitor has been awarded with the Red Dot Award 2020.
Gamers of all skill levels agree that high-performance PC gear is a key success factor. Esports players need to react quickly and make decisions in milliseconds, with the performance of each piece of equipment easily dictating the outcome of a competition. Porsche Design has tapped into its motorsport DNA and partnered with AOC to create a high-performance monitor, especially for gamers who want to win it.
“With its linear, purist design that combines form and function, the Porsche Design AOC AGON PD27 perfectly embodies the brand’s DNA and overall design philosophy. Combined with AOC AGON’s innovative and cutting-edge technologies, the new monitor is developed for gamers looking for optimal performance without compromising on style,” said Roland Heiler, Chief Design Officer of Porsche Design.
Stefan Sommer, Director of Marketing and Commercial Management for AOC Europe, added: “We are proud and delighted to announce the first result of our new partnership with Porsche Design: the Porsche Design AOC AGON PD27 gaming monitor. AOC’s proven expertise in display technologies is a perfect match for Porsche Design’s exceptional design approach. Gamers around the world will be thrilled to experience this excellent product, both in terms of design and outstanding gaming performance.
The monitor is fixed on a silver support, in the shape of the safety cage of a racing car. Just like in a real sports car, this frame offers the user stability and durability. The PD27 can project logos onto the table in different colors and illuminate the back of the screen to enhance the gaming environment.
The PD27 is also VESA DisplayHDR 400 certified, delivering vivid, lifelike colors and wide dynamic range that allows users to immerse themselves in the simulated world. Additionally, a very tight 1000R (one meter radius) curvature surrounds and encapsulates the user – a feature of particular interest to the sim racing community. The 240Hz refresh rate reduces noticeable motion blur, while 1ms GtG and 0.5ms MPRT pixel response times ensure a clear, ghosting-free gaming experience. With adaptive sync (AMD’s FreeSync Premium Pro), users enjoy smooth, tear-free gameplay. The high brightness of the 550 nit VA panel ensures disturbance-free gaming in all lighting conditions.
The PD27 comes with a wireless (IR) keyboard, shaped like a center console, for quick access to monitor settings or gaming presets, as well as 5W stereo speakers with DTS sound. For day-to-day functionality, the monitor also comes with a four-port USB 3.2 hub, 2 HDMI 2.0 inputs, and 2 DisplayPort 1.4 inputs. The Porsche Design AOC AGON PD27 is available at select Porsche Design Manila stores for P42,240. For more information, visit www.porsche-design.com.
