AOC recently released a new 28-inch 4K UHD monitor built with FreeSync technology – the AOC U2879VF. 4K is becoming more and more popular nowadays, both for pro-consumers and PC gamers. A typical 4K UHD monitor has a resolution of 3840 x 2160, that’s 4x the resolution of the most commonly used 1080p monitors. With four times the resolution, this means more work area for content creators and creative professionals; and for gamers that would mean sharper images and better gaming experience. The AOC U2879VF 28″ 4K UHD monitor features AMD FreeSync technology for a smoother gaming experience. Just remember that you also need a very powerful graphics card(s) to drive that much resolution. More details about the new AOC U2879VF 4K UHD monitor below.
AOC U2879VF 28″ 4K UHD Monitor Features
Let’s start with its features; the AOC U2879VF is a 28-inch 4K Ultra HD monitor with a 10-bit deep color. It has a native resolution of 3840×2160 resulting at a 157 pixels per inch density. Unfortunately this doesn’t have an IPS panel; instead it has a Twisted Nematic, or TN panel with a 170°/160° horizontal/vertical viewing angles. It also features a 1,000:1 static contrast ratio and a brightness level of 300 cd/m². One advantage of having a TN panel is having a response time of only 1ms.
The AOC U2879VF runs at 60Hz (via DisplayPort and HDMI 2.0), and it has AMD FreeSync technology built in it. Users with compatible graphics card(s) can take advantage of variable refresh rate technology, no tearing or stuttering, and it’s a cheaper solution compared to NVIDIA’s G-Sync.
A Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture feature is also present in this 4K monitor. With this feature, users can watch a video from a media device through the HDMI connection on one part of the screen, while browsing the Internet from a computer with via the DisplayPort connection on the rest of the screen.
The AOC U2879VF 28″ 4K UHD monitor doesn’t support VESA mounting, this means you are stuck with whatever stand this monitor has. Aesthetically speaking, the monitor features a combination of black glossy surface and matte surface with brushed texture. Check out its specifications table below for the rest of its details.
Price and Availability
The AOC U2879VF 28″ 4K UHD monitor comes with a retail price of $349.99 only and a 3 year limited warranty from the manufacturer. That’s a really attractive starting price for a 28-inch 4K monitor.
