AOC has launched a new gaming monitor, its first display designed in partnership with the G2 Esports organisation. The new AOC G2590PX/G2 is based around the design of the "acclaimed G90 Series of AOC Gaming monitors" (and in particular, very similar to the G2590PX) and in this edition is made to fit in with the "G2 vision of competitive gaming" with its metallic stand, silver finish and G2 Esports art front and back.
For a bit of background history, G2 Esports is based in Berlin, and was formed in 2013. The founder of the organisation is Carlos 'ocelote' Rodríguez, pictured above. G2 Esports has been an AOC partner since January 2018 and now all the team's training facilities have been equipped with AOC's cutting edge gaming displays. This partnership has reached new heights with the release of the AOC G2590PX/G2 Esports Signature Edition gaming monitor.
Key specs of the AOC G2590PX/G2 are as follows:
- 24.5-inch diagonal screen which measures 543.74 x 302.62mm
- FullHD 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution
- 1ms response time

In addition to the above you have access to AOC features such as Shadow Control for bringing details out of the darkness without affecting the rest of the display profile.
AOC has told HEXUS in an email that the new G2590PX/G2 Esports Signature Edition gaming monitor is "available now" and it has set a recommended price of £329. I just checked some online retailers and the non G2 Esports accessorised version of this monitor, the G2590PX, can be found for around £220.
