AOC U2879VF 28″ 4K UHD Monitor with FreeSync Released – See Features, Specs and Price

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.

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.
