The 27-inch PD27 has a 27-inch QHD panel, 240 Hz refresh rate, 0.5 ms MPRT. It features a sleek, eye-catching, racing-influenced design and a wide range of functionalities to be utilized both on a daily basis and during long gaming sessions.

The monitor’s design is accented by the silver-coloured stand element, shaped like the roll cage of a race car. Just as it does in an actual sports car, it provides the user the stability, durability and endurance when adrenaline kicks in. Staying true to Porsche Design’s design philosophy to elegantly blend style and performance, the PD27 can project its logos on the table in different colours, and light up the back of the display to elevate the gaming environment.
“With its linear and purist design that blends form and function, the Porsche Design AOC AGON PD27 is a perfect embodiment of the brand’s DNA and overarching design philosophy. Combined with AOC AGON’s innovative and cutting-edge technologies, the new monitor is developed for gamers seeking optimal performance that doesn’t compromise on style,”Roland Heiler, Chief Design Officer at Porsche Design.
“We’re proud and elated to announce the first result of our new partnership with Porsche Design: the Porsche Design AOC AGON PD27 monitor. AOC’s proven expertise in display technologies is a great match with Porsche Design’s exceptional approach to design. Gamers around the world will be thrilled to experience this great product both in design and outstanding gaming performance,”Stefan Sommer, Director Marketing and Business Management at AOC Europe.
The PD27 displays images in QHD resolution (2560×1440) and produces a 240 Hz refresh rate. It is also certified with VESA’s DisplayHDR 400, providing vivid, lifelike colours and a wide dynamic range that allows users to immerse themselves in the simulated world. Additionally, a very tight curvature of 1000R (1 m radius) surrounds and encapsulates the gamer.
The 240 Hz refresh rate reduces the perceivable motion blur, while the 1 ms GtG and 0.5 ms MPRT pixel response times guarantee a clear, ghosting-free gaming experience. With AMD’s FreeSync Premium Pro users experience smooth gameplay, free of tearing. The VA panel’s high brightness of 550 nits ensures undisturbed gameplay at any lighting conditions.
The PD27 comes with a wireless (IR) keypad, shaped like a centre console, to quickly access monitor settings or gaming presets. Users longing for the roar of the flat six-boxer engines in racing games will appreciate the 5W stereo speakers with DTS sound. For everyday functionality, the monitor also comes with a 4-port USB 3.2 hub, 2x HDMI 2.0 and 2x DisplayPort 1.4 inputs.
