Exclusive design brand Porsche Design and AGON by AOC – one of the world’s leading brands for gaming monitors and IT accessories – jointly present the Porsche Design AOC AGON PRO PD27S, a 27″ (68.6 cm) premium gaming monitor with a design inspired by the elements of a Porsche sports car. With a 165Hz refresh rate exaggerated to 170Hz, 1ms gray-to-gray (GtG) response time, as well as DisplayHDR 400 certification, and a wide color gamut, the PD27S is simply the gaming monitor equivalent to a sports car. The PD27S combines a striking, sleek and functional design with high-end technologies, satisfying the user in every occasion, ranging from everyday tasks to business use, entertainment and high-performance gaming.
“We are now expanding our portfolio that we have created with Porsche Design with a new model. Sharing the same functional and artistic design platform as the PD32M launched earlier this year, the PD27S offers mainstream gaming features in a stylish package,” said Stefan Sommer, Global Head of Marketing at TPV. “Building on the successful partnership with the premium monitor brand AGON by AOC, Porsche Design is once again bringing sports car-inspired design to the gaming industry. The Porsche Design AOC AGON PRO PD27S received the 2022 “iF Design Award” and the “Red Dot Award: Product Design 2022″ and received critical acclaim, and the performance and level of technological innovation are as impressive as the design,” says Roland Heiler, Chief Design Officer at Porsche Design.
The PD27S shares the impeccable functional design of the 32″ PD32M introduced in April. The PD27S received the 2022 “iF Design Award” and the “Red Dot Award: Product Design 2022”. To perform during intense, extended gaming sessions, gamers need to be able to rely on their solid and robust gaming gear. The main attraction of the PD27S is the sandblasted aluminum die-cast stand with its sturdy, functional construction and unique shape, reminiscent of the steering wheel and spokes of a sports car. The clean, streamlined design of the PD27S features tapered surfaces on the housing on the back and sides, echoing the functional layout of the internal components. The metal mesh inlays — similar to air-cooling intakes on a car — house the speakers on the left and right sides of the unit. These sections are indirectly lit with customizable RGB (Light FX) lighting to increase dynamics and enhance immersion. Thanks to the ergonomic stand, the PD27S offers rotation direction, 150 mm height and tilt and swivel adjustments.
The exclusive design of the PD27S is coupled with the outstanding rendering expertise of AGON by AOC to deliver impressive features for ambitious gamers. The Porsche Design AOC AGON PRO PD27S features a flat IPS (AAS) panel for high color accuracy and a wide color gamut. Thanks to the powerful and vibrant color reproduction of the 10-bit IPS panel, the PD27S covers 95 percent of the DCI-P3 gamut and 99 percent of the sRGB gamut, making it excel in all color-critical tasks. The explosion of color on the DisplayHDR 400 certified PD27S is further enhanced by the display’s ability to decode and reproduce high dynamic range content in movies, videos and games to display lifelike images.
Thanks to the sharp QHD resolution (2560 × 1440) on its 27-inch expanse, the PD27S has a high pixel density of 109 ppi, perfect for everyday business use. A QHD resolution is also the first choice of ambitious gamers to easily achieve high frame rates and sharpness at the same time. The 165Hz/170Hz refresh rate and 1ms GtG response time ensure smooth movement in fast-paced games with virtually no ghosting. Thanks to Adaptive-Sync technology, the PD27S supports a variable refresh rate, eliminating artifacts such as tearing and stuttering.
Advanced Daily Driver
The PD27S is not just a gaming monitor, but a high-end all-rounder. Equipped with a 4-port USB 3.2 hub, external devices such as keyboards, mice or external drives can be connected quickly and easily, reducing cable clutter and giving any desk a clean and functional layout. To complete the audiovisual experience, the PD27S features dual 5W speakers enhanced with DTS for clear and rich sound.
To remind users of its heritage, the monitor will greet users with an animated start-up logo. To adjust various settings including color modes or game modes, the on-screen menu is also laid out with a unique design. The monitor comes with a USB stick containing user manuals and associated software.
The Porsche Design AOC AGON PRO PD27S is available now in Porsche Design stores, specialist retailers and online at www.porsche-design.com, as well as at select online retailers, for a suggested retail price of £429.99.
