AOC have released details in some regions of a new 34″ model in their gaming line-up of displays. The CU34G2X is 34″ in size and has a 21:9 aspect ratio, VA technology panel, 1500R curvature and a 3440 x 1440 resolution. It supports refresh rates up to 144Hz over DisplayPort (100Hz over HDMI) and has a variable refresh rate range of 48 – 100/144Hz. This is supported by adaptive-sync allowing for support from AMD FreeSync and NVIDIA G-sync systems.
In other specs there is a 1ms MPRT spec, 3000:1 contrast ratio, 300 cd/m2 brightness, 172/178 viewing angles, 16.7m colour depth and a 91% DCi-P3 colour gamut (119% sRGB coverage). The 1ms MPRT spec is made possible thanks to the added “MBR” (Motion Blur Reduction) mode offering a strobing backlight.
HDR is promoted of course, but only in terms of supporting an HDR10 input source. There is no meaningful HDR performance offered from the screen here, other than an extended colour gamut.
There is a factory calibration provided offering a dE of <2. For connectivity there are 2x DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.0, 4x USB ports and an audio output. Tilt, height and swivel adjustments are offered from the stand. PiP and PbP functions are offered here too.
It’s unclear which regions this model will be released in at this time. More info on availability and pricing when we get it.
Update 10/12/19 – This model has been confirmed for a European and UK release in January 2020. It will be priced at £499. The official spec page is now available here . There will also be a similar model with the same size, specs etc but a 100Hz refresh rate instead. That model will be the CU34G2 and will be launched at the same time at £399.
