AOC has just unveiled its latest AG273QX flat panel (no curve) gaming monitor, with a 27-inch VA panel rocking a native 2560 x 1440 at 165Hz with FreeSync 2 on top.

AOC has a 1ms response time on the new monitor, which is nothing really new these days -- but the 1440p 165Hz FreeSync 2 is something worth talking about. The new AOC AG273QX gaming monitor has AMD FreeSync 2, which delivers HDR 400 support.

The inclusion of FreeSync 2 means that we have low-latency HDR tone mapping and LFC (Low Framerate Compensation). The frameless design is another nice touch, as you could have 3 of these side-by-side for some triple-monitor gaming fun.

AOC is aiming the AG273QX at gamers who attend LAN parties (seriously, I wish they didn't die off, I loved LANs) with a carrying handle and double headset holders. THere's also some RGB lighting on the back in a slick RGB ring.

You have 1 x DP, 1 x HDMI, and 1 x VGA out on the AOC AG273QX as well as 4 x USB 3.0 ports and a 3.5mm headphone jack. You'll be able to pick it up in November for around $560.
