AOC C3583FQ: 160Hz 35-inch VA FreeSync Gaming Monitor

AOC has announced that among the products they will be revealing at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is the AOC C3583FQ gaming monitor. This 35 inch curved display will have an impressive 160Hz refresh rate and include AMD’s FreeSync technology. To be clear the 160Hz refresh rate of the monitor is actually a “pre-overclocked” setting according to AOC. This monitor will be directly competing with the similarly specced Acer XZ350CU monitor.

This gaming monitor’s panel will be a VA which is less common than IPS or TN panels out there. In terms of quality VA panels can be described as an in-between. As we mentioned this monitor is a curved display and it has a pretty strong 2000R curve. While not specified exactly by AOC we believe that the resolution of the monitor, given its 35-inch size, will be 2560 x 1080 with a 21:9 aspect ratio. If our suspicions are correct then the monitor will have a rather lackluster pixel density of 79 PPI. The upside of this will mean that users will have less difficulty pushing their graphics card to output high frame rates near the 144Hz refresh rate. This monitor includes FreeSync, meaning that it will remove any stutters or judders that one would otherwise experience while gaming, especially now that Low Framerate Compensation has been introduced.

AOC C3583FQ back

Stylistically speaking what sets the AOC C3583FQ apart from most is the piano black finish on the back and the fact that its stand acts as an input hub. Other specs worth mentioning is the 2000:1 static contrast ratio, the anti-glare matte screen, and its 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles. AOC advertises this VA monitor as having a 5ms GTG response time which is slightly slower than most IPS panels out there. Because the monitor’s stand is used as an input hub the use of VESA mounting is not available. Additionally, the monitor is only tilt-only. The monitor’s connectivity options include a DVI port, two HDMI 1.4 ports, two 1.2a+ DisplayPorts, an audio input, and an audio output. The monitor also has two 5W speakers integrated into it.
