New 200 Hz Ultrawide Monitor From AOC With G-SYNC HDR, The AG353UCG Ultrawide

AOC recently announced the AG353UCG, an ultrawide monitor with 3440×1440 resolution and a 200 Hz refresh rate.

As extra cake frosting, this monitor includes a whopping 500-zone full-array local dimming backlight. This allows a much greater contrast ratio than is otherwise possible with normal LCD panels. That means blacks are blacker, while whites and highlights are capable of being brighter.

The monitor is mentioned to be capable of 1ms MPRT, which indicates it should also include NVIDIA ULMB or another similar motion blur reduction mode.

To summarize, this monitor features the following:

  • 35″ Ultrawide
  • 3440×1440 resolution
  • 200 Hz refresh rate
  • 1000-nit peak brightness
  • 512-zone Full Array Local Dimming (FALD) Backlight
  • VESA DisplayHDR 1000 Certification
  • Motion Blur Reduction Mode (1ms MPRT)
  • DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0

Sources tell us that this monitor is expected to be released in Fall 2019.
