The AOC Q27G3ZN, the Taiwanese company’s latest gaming monitor, is making a play for esports gamers and FPS enthusiasts with an impressive 260Hz refresh rate. Although the monitor market is more crowded than ever, AOC hopes its new monitor’s impressive specs will win round consumers.

AOC has a decent record in the gaming monitor department. Our AOC AGON Pro AG274QXM review says that monitor’s “Mini LED backlight and 576 local dimming zones offer great visuals versus standard LCDs for a genuinely good HDR experience”.
