AOC, a worldwide leader in monitor display technology, recently announced that its gaming range of monitors has achieved #1 global market share among gaming PC monitor companies in the world, according to the latest figures revealed by International Data Corporation (IDC).
The figures were published in IDC’s Quarterly Gaming Tracker for 2019Q4. In the category of gaming monitors with refresh rates of 100Hz and above, IDC’s figures indicate AOC achieved its market-leading position with cumulative sales of more than 2.6 million units, for a market share of around 18%. Clearly, AOC gaming monitors enjoy unrivaled popularity with gamers worldwide!
Gamers are demanding monitors in a range of styles and performance metrics, and AOC’s successful strategy is to meet the needs of both “pro” and leisure gamers, staying ahead of the competition, ensuring aggressive design, unrivaled performance and special features for the most demanding gamers. AOC’s top gaming monitor sub brand, Agon is a perfect example with refresh rates of up to 240Hz, a 0.5ms response time, and anti-tearing adaptive sync technology, including G-Sync from Nvidia and AMD’s FreeSync.
Providing top performance for these different market segments, the AOC line-up includes the 34-inch CU34G2X, a superwide curved model in a 21:9 aspect ratio, where the user can enjoy a full field of view. In the AOC Agon range, the 32-inch AG323QCXE monitor has a curvature of 1500R, for a fully immersive gaming experience. The brilliance of Nano IPS color can be experienced with AOC’s 27-inch AG273QG, a Quad HD (2560 x 1440) gaming monitor supporting Nvidia G-Sync anti-tearing technology and muscling in with a furiously fast refresh rate of 165Hz and response time of 1ms.
Gaming monitors are now a large and fast-growing market, with lots of potential for further growth, as esports attract a growing band of dedicated enthusiasts. AOC has responded by working closely with game developers to provide professional gaming displays and further build the fast-evolving gaming community.
AOC has, for example, sponsored the APAC Cybercafe Tournament for the highly popular PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds) game. AOC has also partnered with the world’s most competitive esports teams and organizers, including the IeSF and the G2 Esports club, to develop such superb products as the G2 Series, and to reach out and meet the needs of this unique audience.
AOC will of course continue to develop its offering for the gaming-monitor segment. In particular, the G3 and Agon 4 series are upcoming, equipped with a slew of top-end features that include 1000R curvature, UHD resolution and all the brilliance of High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology.
