For gamers, a good monitor has become almost as important as other components in your rig. What good is the latest RTX GPU if you can’t take full advantage of it right?

Gaming monitors such as the AGON AG493UCX from AOC are perfectly suited for games. This particular monitor boasts a 120Hz refresh rate, 5120 x 1440p native resolution and 49inch Ultra-Wide form factor. The monitor also features AMD FreeSync Premium Pro which allows for tear-free gaming.

What’s more is that the AGON AG493UCX from AOC features 121 percent coverage of the sRGB colour gamut and it is Vesa Certified DisplayHDR™ 400.

But with all of these features, could a gaming monitor be used in a professional setting?

The answer is yes, absolutely.

The wide colour gamut and HDR certification makes the AGON AG493UCX from AOC perfect for creative work where colour accuracy is incredibly important.

The high resolution and 49inches of real-estate also makes working on complex product development much easier according to Eye Above.

Eye Above was founded by Robert Miller and aims to combat poaching through the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The firm is developing its own UAVs which will feature long flight duration, minimal maintenance and autonomous operation.

The Eye Above UAVs are designed with anti-poaching specifically in mind but, as you might imagine, designing a UAV from the ground up is a complex process.

This is why AOC partnered with Eye Above to provide it with the AGON AG493UCX from AOC so that designing the tiny components that make up a UAV is easier.

“As we move to the final design of our state of the art UAV, screen real estate is becoming a priority due to the large assemblies and multibody parts we are working with. While it’s easy to zoom in to see the small details, the lack of screen real estate to the left and right of the area you are working on can mean that you miss things or have to continually zoom in and out,” explains Miller.

Having a 49inch 5120 x 1440p display is similar to having two 2560 x 1440p monitors side-by-side, albeit with a few benefits.

The form factor of the AGON AG493UCX is like having two 27inch monitors side by side.

For one, your graphics processor doesn’t have to work as hard and when dealing with CAD, you want as much power being used by your GPU. Using an ultra-wide monitor also removes the gap between monitors you would have with a side-by-side setup. What’s more is that the AGON AG493UCX from AOC features a VESA 100×100 mount so you can fit it to existing monitor arms quite easily if you’re looking at creating a wall of monitors.

“AOCs involvement doesn’t only bring lots of screen real estate to the party they also bring exceptional graphics quality and blue light filtering meaning we can also spend more time in front of the screen with less eye strain,” the Eye Above founder adds.

“We are very excited about our new partnership with the Eye Above team. It’s great to see the diversity in which our monitors are being used nowadays, not just focused around gaming but different segments like racing/flight simulation and graphics designs,” said AOC country manager for South Africa, Chris Barnes.

“It’s imperative we do everything we can to help save our Rhinos and for AOC to be a small part of the fight we are very grateful,” Barnes added.

The AGON AG493UCX from AOC also features a four year warranty. So whether you’re fighting aliens or poaching, visit Wootware to find out more about AOC AGON monitors or get your own.
