    Keep an eye on AOC's website for a product page going live.
    If I see it I will update.

    Looks just perfect! I'm just sad it'll probably never be available in my country

    Monitors like this are immeasurably more attractive now that NVIDIA is supporting Adaptive Sync across the board.

    Specs table on Amazon.com suggests this is Freesync 1 as the same table specifies Freesync 2 for another model.

    https://www.amazon.com/AOC-CQ32G1-Frameless-2560x1440-DisplayPort/dp/B07HKM16DT

    It's about 1/3rd of the way down and it shows their higher spec model to be Freesync 2 with the others just saying "Freesync" which leads me to infer Freesync 1.

    Re: AOC intros CQ32G1 31.5-inch QHD curved 144Hz gaming monitor

    So in 2019 the monitor comes with DP 1.2 and HDMI 1.4?!?

    WHY? Why would I buy old tech?


    Also, does it have to be curved?
    Not all of us fall for gimmicks.

    Because DP1.2 and HDMI 1.4 is all you need and this resolution and refresh rate.

    The main stock image states Freesync 2....look in the bottom left corner.

    I'm confused, there are reviews of the 32 model of this from last year. I feel like there must be some kind of model number confusion.
