AOC announces 31.5” IPS QHD monitor with 75 Hz, 5 ms GtG and AMD FreeSync
AOC announces the Q3279VWFD8, a sibling to the 31.5” Q3279VWF, a superb allrounder from the well-received 79 series, which debuted last autumn and received huge appraisal for its extraordinary price/performance ratio. The new monitor, Q3279VWFD8 uses a different panel type - IPS- rather than the VA panel used in its older brother and boasts a wider colour gamut for increased colour accuracy and therefore more vivid, natural and eye-catching imagery. The Q3279VWFD8’s 31.5” IPS panel offers a highly detailed QHD resolution (2560x1440 pixels), 5 ms GtG response time, AMD FreeSync support and 75 Hz refresh rate. Aimed at particularly budget conscious home power users, internet cafés and everyone who is after jaw-dropping specs without breaking the bank are going to be well-served with the Q3279VWFD8.
The Q3279VWFD8 boasts a huge 31.5” IPS panel and QHD (2560x1440 pixels) resolution, resulting in fine details, a lot of screen real estate for increased productivity, and a comfortable pixel density for daily usage. While the panel and its specifications speak for itself, the exterior design of this monitor also takes the users’ breath away: the glossy black finish of its narrow bezels, stand and rear cover creates a pleasing contrast with its sturdy, weighty base in silver finish.
Thanks to the wide viewing angles of 178/178° achieved by its IPS panel, friends & families sitting together are going to enjoy the vivid imagery at the same time without experiencing a colour shift. The 8-bit+FRC panel delivering 1.07 billion crisp colours and offers 88% coverage of the NTSC colour gamut help reproduce much more vivid colours including vibrant reds, deep blues, and lush greens with a high, 1200:1 contrast ratio.
The QHD (2560x1440 pixels) resolution of the Q3279VWFD8 enables not only detailed photos and videos, but also games. The blend of 75 Hz refresh rate, 5 ms GtG, and AMD FreeSync support produces a fast, tear-free gameplay experience and without any additional input lag or stutter.
The Q3279VWFD8 offers a wide range of connectivity, including legacy sources such as VGA and DVI as well as HDMI an DisplayPort, therefore is capable of connecting various game consoles, PCs, laptops, set-top boxes and many more. A 3.5mm jack connector is foreseen to connect headphones or an external speakerset. AOC’s Clear Vision technology improves clarity and vividness when viewing Standard Definition (SD) content. AOC’s Flicker-Free technology also eliminates flicker by using Direct Current (DC) for regulating brightness instead of Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces eye-fatigue when using the monitor in long hours.
The 31.5” Q3279VWFD8 is will be available from July 2018 with an MSRP of EUR 249,-
