Porsche Design AOC Agon Pro PD32M Premium MiniLED monitor offers 144Hz refresh rate, HDR 1400 out of the box

Play and work in futuristic style

AGON by AOC and Porsche Design have teamed up to build the new AGON PD32M, a premium display offering gaming features, colour accuracy, and a futuristic design all in one.

The design of the new monitor embodies Porsche Design’s unique aesthetic featuring characteristics and details of a Porsche sports car.

It also features a flat IPS (AAS) panel, reproducing 1.07 billion colours to display even subtle differences in hues. It is also highly colour accurate with 97% coverage of the DCI-P3 colour space to achieve lifelike colours and shades. With the integration of the state-of-the-art MiniLED backlight technology, the monitor features 1,152 dimming zones, which can individually light up according to image content. Proven to display both blinding sunlight and very intense black shadows in the same frame, the PD32M is certified with the top-of-the-line HDR certification, DisplayHDR 1400. With up to 1,400 nits peak brightness, it dwarfs the common ~300 nits brightness of modern gaming monitors.

The IPS panel runs in pin-sharp 4K resolution (3840 x 2160) with a high, fast refresh rate of 144 Hz. With a true 1 ms GtG response time, the so-called “ghosting” between frames is virtually eliminated. With the inclusion of Adaptive-Sync, the new device is capable of variable refresh rate (VRR) implementations, eliminating artefacts such as tearing and stuttering. The PD32M caters to both PC and console gamers, thanks to its DisplayPort 1.4 and two HDMI 2.1 ports. The monitor additionally supports devices up to 120 Hz at 4K over USB-C as well as current-gen consoles via HDMI 2.1.

It also has a fully customisable RGB lighting (Light FX) at the back of the display. When booting up, the monitor will greet users with an animated start-up logo and a special sound. The on-screen display (OSD) menu is designed with a unique and user-friendly structure, while a wireless gaming keypad is included for users to quickly access the OSD settings of the monitor with comfort and ease. Last but not least, the monitor arrives with a USB stick that includes user manuals and related software.

The Porsche Design AOC Agon Pro PD32M will be available sometime later this year.
