AOC is releasing the AOC G4309VX/D which has an expansive 43-inch screen that includes sought-after features such as a 4 K 144Hz output. Large-format screens aren’t common for the brand, and we’re glad they are bringing more competitors into the high-end segment. Its boasts a 4K resolution and a 144Hz maximum refresh rate which makes it great for buttery-smooth gaming.
AOC G4309VX/D Tale of the Tape
The AOC G4309VX/D starts off with a 43-inch VA panel with a 3840 x 2160 resolution and a 144Hz refresh rate. That’s starting to become fairly common now, but not all have 1100 cd/m2 peak brightness outputs and 4000:1 SDR contrast ratios. This model has edge-lit local dimming, so it won’t be as crazy-expensive as FALD-bearing monitors like the Asus PG32UQX.
It also advertises wide gamut coverage of up to 95% DCI-3 thanks to Quantum Dot technology. It’s also sized like a regular TV if you haven’t noticed, so it is quite heavy and it will need a lot of space from your desk. It doesn’t have a fully-ergonomic stand, but you can use VESA mounts if you need more flexibility.
The AOC G4309VX/D is supported by DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.1 which allows 4K 144Hz and 4K 120Hz operation with gaming PCs and next-gen consoles. It also has a slew of USB 3.2 Gen.1 ports, but USB-C isn’t included with this model. You also get a pair of 7-watt speakers which should sound meatier than your regular built-in sets on other gaming displays.
The AOC G4309VX/D is slated for a 2022 release in the Chinese market, but there are no specific dates or launch pricing at this time. Other continents should follow shortly since it’s a very attractive option, but there are no specifics there as well.
