Anyone know if the AOC AG272FCX works with G-sync?

Hi everyone

With many Freesync monitors now working with Nvidia G-Sync via the latest drivers, including many that aren't in the list of 12 that Nvidia mentioned at CES, I am considering getting a Freesync display for my secondary system.

The AOC AG272FCX is currently on sale for a very good price, but I can't find anything online about whether anyone has tested it with G-sync. There is a G-sync compatible master thread where people can post their results on reddit but it isn't mentioned there at all.

So if anyone here on OCN has this display as well as an Nvidia GPU could you please let me know if G-sync is working well for you?

Thanks in advance for any assistance. My second option is the Acer KG271A which has been mentioned in the reddit thread to be working, but I thought I'd ask about this one first.

They all work is adaptive sync works. Nvidia enabled adaptive sync, if yours has that it will work.
If the monitor has a poor implementation it will work poorly. If the monitor is crap, it will be crap.
If it's a good panel with proper VRR, you'll have good results.

Yeah that seems to be the way. I haven't used this monitor before though which is why I'm hoping someone who has one might be able to confirm it for me before I drop cash on it.

I am also considering this monitor to use with my GTX1060. Did you end up buying it? If so, did it work with G-sync?

I purchased the monitor on ebay on the weekend while it was on sale for a really good price. I haven't received it but I'll let you know how I go. I couldn't find any concrete info on whether it works with G-sync but all the reviews I found were very positive and there weren't any complaints about it's freesync implementation so I hope it will be okay.

Received it today, just tested it out and G-sync appears to work absolutely fine. There is quite a lot of ghosting on default settings (VA panel) so I suggest that you put the overdrive on the highest setting to minimalize it. Once that is dialed in it looks much better. Didn't notice any overshoot on the highest overdrive either. Pretty happy for $300 AUD delivered.

I will play around with the color calibration later, it has an FPS mode that looks better than standard but it won't let you adjust the overdrive in that preset for some reason.

Awesome, thanks for the tips. Sounds like a pretty good deal. Been tossing up this monitor or the Asus vg278q which is definitely ‘gsync compatible’. I found the asus to be $50 AUD more but is TN. Also, the curved screen might be cool for sim racing! Wondering what would be better for photo editing (second priority after gaming). I’m thinking the AOC since it is VN. But still not ideal for editing.

Yeah VA has generally far superior contrast ratio and viewing angles than TN. The only real advantage to TN over IPS or VA is response times. TN is generally very fast, 1ms GTG on TN gaming displays normally. This VA panel is rated at 4ms GTG but it might be a bit slower since it does appear to have a little more smearing/ghosting than my Acer Predator XB271HU IPS monitor, which is also rated at 4ms GTG. But for $300 AUD it's a really good deal. The Ebay sale ended on the 10th but I wouldn't be surprised if it goes on sale again in the next 20% off tech sale.

IPS would be better than either if accurate colors is a priority.
I wouldn't buy anything curved unless it were 21:9 or very large. If the panel lottery wasn't already bad enough, curving the screen makes it even worse.
$300 for a 1080p 144hz TN panel is insane when you can get 1440p 144hz IPS for just a little more.
VA panels typically smear the blacks really badly, despite what they list their G2G as. Plus the BLB.
TN might be a slightly faster panel than IPS but at 144hz you can only notice ghosting if you spin in a circle really fast and try to look for it. I really wouldn't consider TN unless I played CS:GO all the time.

I think you might be confusing the currency, we are talking in AUD, so the monitor was $300 AUD delivered when it was on sale, the only 144hz monitor available here that was cheaper was the Acer KG251QF which is a 24" TN screen. The cheapest 144hz IPS displays in AU are generally around the $550 AUD mark from what I've seen. I've already got an XB271HU for my main system so I didn't want to spend big money on one that's only going to get occasional use.

I have to say though, I know all the things that VA is known for but this one has pretty good reviews online and to me it seems pretty good. I honestly expected worse ghosting/smearing but with the overdrive turned up it's only a bit worse than my XB271HU. Definitely suitable for 144hz gameplay. Didn't notice any backlight bleed either, despite the curve. It's not as good overall as my main monitor but I'm very impressed for something that cost 1/3 what my Acer display cost.
