Lifestyle brand Porsche Design and monitor specialist AOC have teamed up to produce the first ever Porsche Design AOC AGON gaming monitor.

The 27″ (68.58 cm) PD27 2K curved monitor aims to provide an experience similar to driving a race car.

It boasts a QHD panel, 240 Hz refresh rate, 0.5 ms MPRT (Moving Picture Response TIme), AMD’s FreeSync Premium Pro for tear-free gameplay, a resolution of 2560×1440 and a racing-influenced design. It has also been honoured with the Red Dot Award 2020.

The PD27 comes with a wireless (IR) keypad, shaped like a centre console, to quickly access monitor settings or gaming presets.

It also features 5W stereo speakers with DTS sound, plus a 4-port USB 3.2 hub, with 2x HDMI 2.0 and 2x DisplayPort 1.4 inputs.

The PD27 is also certified with VESA’s DisplayHDR 400, providing vivid, lifelike colours and has a very tight curvature of 1000R (1 m radius). The VA panel’s high brightness of 550 nits aims to ensure undisturbed gameplay under any lighting conditions.

The monitor’s design is accented by the silver-coloured stand element, shaped like the roll cage of a race car, promising to provide gamers with the stability, durability and endurance when adrenaline kicks in.

Staying true to Porsche Design’s design philosophy to blend style and performance, the PD27 can project its logos on the table in different colours, and light up the back of the display.

AOC and Porsche Design say it’s been developed for ‘for the most ambitious competitive gamers and professional esports enthusiasts around the world’, who need to react quickly and make decisions in milliseconds.

“With its linear and purist design that blends form and function, the Porsche Design AOC AGON PD27 is a perfect embodiment of the brand’s DNA and overarching design philosophy,” said Roland Heiler, chief design officer at Porsche Design.

“Combined with AOC AGON’s innovative and cutting-edge technologies, the new monitor is developed for gamers seeking optimal performance that doesn’t compromise on style.”

Stefan Sommer, director of marketing and business management at AOC Europe, added: “We’re proud and elated to announce the first result of our new partnership with Porsche Design: the Porsche Design AOC AGON PD27 monitor.

“AOC’s proven expertise in display technologies is a great match with Porsche Design’s exceptional approach to design. Gamers around the world will be thrilled to experience this great product both in design and outstanding gaming performance.”

The Porsche Design AOC AGON PD27 is available as of mid November 2020 in select Porsche Design stores, specialist retailers and online at www.porsche-design.com and selected online retailers with an RRP of £719.99.

There’s also a competition to win the monitor here.
