AOC has been collaborating with Porsche on monitors since 2017, when it released the PDS241 and PDS271. The Agon Pro PD32M might have a similar sleek design, but the technology has evolved over the past five years.

Like the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9, the Agon Pro PD32M features a mini LED panel, improving its brightness, contrast and HDR capabilities. No word on how many local dimming zones it has, but for comparison, Samsung’s 49-inch monster has 2,049, while the 27-inch Cooler Master GP27-FQS has 576.

The monitor’s peak brightness of 1600 nits earns it DisplayHDR 1400 certification. of 3840 × 2160 (138 PPI).

The Agon Pro PD32M is another modern monitor that caters to owners of current-gen Xbox and PlayStation consoles thanks to the inclusion of two HDMI 2.1 ports. There’s also a DisplayPort 1.4 input, four USB 3.2-A ports, and a USB Type-C that offers up to 95 watts of power delivery.

Rounding out the specs are two 8-watt DTS-certified speakers, a 3.5mm headphone jack, two built-in headphone stands, and a Quick Switch wireless remote for changing OSD functions.

The Porsche association is evident in the design of the monitor. The trapezoidal aluminum bracket picks up the style of steering wheels from iconic cars, while an LED projector projects the Porsche Design logo onto the base of the bracket. There is also three-sided RGB lighting on the back of the monitor.

The Agon Pro PD32M is an impressive piece of hardware. We won’t know if it’s worth that $1,800 price tag until we get our hands on it – it launches June 15 with pre-orders open now. It will be interesting to see how it stacks up against our best gaming monitor above $1000, the curved 34″ Alienware 34 QD-OLED, which is “just” $1300.

We have a refresh rate of 144 Hz for a response time of 1 ms. It is therefore easy to guess that this screen is intended above all for players. Moreover, at the level of VRR there is only the Adaptive-Sync, small regret all the same not to have an NVIDIA G-Sync or AMD FreeSync certification. As for the luminosity, it is announced at 600 cd/m² in SDR and until 1600 cd/m² in HDR. Because yes, here we have a backlight via a system Mini LED, but the brand does not specify how many there are. We also have certification VESA DisplayHDR 1400. As for the contrast, IPS obliges, we are on 1000:1 announcement. The color depth is 10 bit and the screen is therefore capable of displaying up to approximately 1.07 billion colours. For color spaces, the gamut DCI-P3 is announced covered at 97%.

Connectivity level, this screen AOC Agon Pro PD32M offers two HDMI 2.1 ports, a DisplayPort 1.4 port, a USB-C DP Alt Mode and 95 W and finally a HUB of four USB 3.2 ports.

Two 8W speakers are integrated into the screen and we also have two headphone jacks.

Visually, necessarily this screen is very worked and we feel the care that Porsche Design has given to the whole. The trapezoidal foot is made of aluminium. We have a borderless design for the slab and on the bottom we find the Porsche Design logo. Where the screen hits hard; it’s on the back of the slab. Indeed, we see large RGB strips on the top and on both sides, but we also have on each side a support for headphones.
