I know this argument been flogged to death - But I'm not on about the super freak who says he can notice a 1000hz tongue.gif

no but do you remember how cool those first 100hz TV's looked while watching sport

( cricket i assume )

fluid like a soap opera on speed.


btw my 1080p TV is better quality than any monitor i have ever owned.

I thought my old LG 49" 4K 4:4:4 8 bit IPS was really nice.. Until I saw how smooth 144hz G-Sync is. No tearing and no motion blurring. It's just amazing IMO.

The news-article says "this comes straight from the horse’s mouth" (i'm no english native, but i think i get it), refering to the 30-160 Hz which doesn't seem right to me. If you read the article and the info on AOCs homepage, AOC never stated the range. They wrote 144 Hz maximum and on the spec sheet you can find 30-160 KHz as HORIZONTAL Frequency Range. I'm no expert but this is not the Freesync-Range, right? Togheter with the "max 144 Hz but 30-160 Hz Freesync-Range - the producer said so (never did, as far as i know), but we can't explain it"-statement to me it seems as one News-Reporter read and wrote that wrongly from the datasheet and now its all over the news with "info right from the producer. AOC never revealed the range...

Hope I'm not right, but, you know... mellowsmiley.gif

And I am an expert, yahooligan. One who happened to write the article you are referring to. I am privy to information beyond simply manufacturer product pages. The variable refresh rate range has been confirmed as 30-160Hz. However; the '160Hz' bit actually requires some form of overclocking apparently, so consider
the range 30-144Hz 'reliably'. All will become clearer when I test this model over the next few weeks.


Edit: I have seen people referencing this thread elsewhere with respect to the fact that the FreeSync range was not as originally stated. I'd like to clarify that I was not the originator of this misinformation, but rather it was an internal misunderstanding which elements of AOC (including PR people, product managers and other representatives) circulated. I simply passed on what I was told and did not make any false assumptions or fabricate this information. It is apparent from testing that the FreeSync range is 48 - 146Hz without any modifications to the monitor. Anything else stated to the contrary is incorrect. An updated driver should give a 35Hz minimum, however.

PCM2, thank you for clearing that up! It was just speculation from my side, you know, we all are very critical about that Freesync-Ranges in times like these.

I still wonder why the producer doesn't clear that up more on the product page as this is a great hz-range and many people are sensible for that topic and would see it positively.
post #76 of 155
I agree. I will suggest that they clarify the FreeSync range on the product page, although it is very rare that manufacturers actually quote the variable refresh rate range on their monitors. In this case I agree it's a big selling point, but I would happily have users refer to my upcoming review rather than a simple specification page for the monitor. tongue.gif

Upcoming review? Yeah!

I totaly agree! wink.gif

well done AOC!
The refresh rate range for FreeSync is very impressive indeed, as it ranges from 30 – 160Hz. That is not a typo – this comes straight from the horse’s mouth and is something which will make these models stand out for some users. Despite AOC’s insistence to the contrary, it appears that the FreeSync floor is actually 48Hz (on the 24″ model, at least). And 144Hz is the upper limit unless you fancy overclocking.

I just want a 24 inch 1080P 300Hz monitor, this whole freesync/gsync thing is out of hand, too much lag for competitive gaming.

Yeah, great huh!? rolleyes.gif Their product manager is baffled by this (and the fact overdrive doesn't work at >60Hz) as well.
