AOC Malaysia recently announced the arrival of its 49-inch Ultrawide Curved Gaming Monitor in our market. Also known as the AG493UCX, it is a long time coming for the gaming monitor given that AOC first debut back at CES 2020.
Equipped with a VA panel that has a native resolution of 5120 x 1440 and a 32:9 aspect ratio, the experience of using the 1800R curved display is akin to having two 27-inch 2560 x 1440 monitors side-by-side. The AMD FreeSync Premium Pro and DisplayHDR 400-certified monitor also offers DCI-P3 and sRGB colour gamut coverage of 93% and 121%, respectively.
As you may expect from a gaming monitor these days, the AG493UCX offers a fast refresh rate of 120Hz as well as 1ms of response time. Alongside a pair of 5W speakers and a built-in USB 3.2 hub, the monitor is also equipped with two HDMI 2.0 ports, two DisplayPort 1.4, and one USB-C port that support DisplayPort Alt Mode.
Price-wise, the AG493UCX retails at RM5,999 but it is currently being offered through AOC Malaysia’s official store on Shopee for RM4,999. Alternatively, the monitor can also be obtained through AOC dealers throughout the country although you may want to give a call first to check the AG493UCX’s actual in-store availability.
