AOC and Porsche have teamed up to create a fast, sleek, curved screen gaming monitor. Heralded as a monitor that provides “performance with no compromise on style,” the 27-inch display boasts a QHD resolution panel with 240Hz refresh rate, and 0.5ms MPRT response time. Ahead of its release (available shortly), the Porsche Design AOC Agon PD27 has already secured a prestigious Red Dot 2020 design award.
The PD27, for short, blends AOC Agon eSports knowhow with Porsche’s motorsports DNA with the aim to thrill gamers with a heady mix of performance and design. The overall look is pleasingly minimal from the front with what is referred to as a three sided frameless design, proudly bearing the Porsche name on the bezel below the screen surface. Around the back of this 1000R curved screen you will see the unique looking white metal stand which was inspired by the roll cage of a racing car.
