Way back in May, AOC launched its first Porsche Design co-branded mini LED display PD32M. The panel was a 31.5-inch display with 4K resolution and a 144 Hz refresh rate. The product reached the Chinese market with a price tag of 8888 Yuan. Now, AOC is bringing a new AOC Agon Porsche Design Display with the PD27S model number. The new panel brings a 27-inch diagonal and has a 2K resolution plus an impressive 170 Hz refresh rate. Interestingly, the product costs CNY 3,199 ($473), but there is a starting deal that brings the price down to CNY 2999 ($443).
According to the report, the new AOC Agon Porsche Design Display uses a metal base bracket. The design is clearly inspired by Porsche supercar wheels. In addition to that, the monitor features ambient lighting and AOC and Porsche Design logos when powered on.
AOC Agon Porsche Design PD27s specs
In terms of specifications, the monitor boasts a gorgeous 27-inch IPS panel. It offers a 2K resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels. It’s a good option for gamers and enthusiasts since the crispy images will refresh fast at 170 Hz. The panel also has a 1 ms grayscale response time. Moreover, it boasts DisplayHDR 400 certification, 10-bit color depth, and 106% NTSC color gamut area. In terms of interfaces, the monitor comes with two HDMI 2.0 interfaces. Furthermore, there are two Display Port 1.4 ports, and USB Upstream and Downstream interfaces.
Interestingly, earlier this year, AOC launched the Agon PD27 with Porsche Design. The product has a VA LCD with the same 27-inches as the new model. Moreover, it brings a 2,560 x 1,440 resolution. In counterpart to the newer AOC Agon Porsche Design Display PD27s, the old model has a higher 240 Hz refresh rate.
The design is also slightly different. It also has DisplayHDR 400 certification with a peak brightness of 400 nits. Furthermore, this panel had two speakers with 5 W and DTS audio tech.
We are curious to see if the new PD27S will reach other markets. Computer monitors are certainly trending, and this premium product has enough pomp to make loyal fans across the world. This certainly is a more traditional panel when compared to the LG DualUP display launched in the last month.
