AOC is a name that should be familiar with our readers for its expansive family of gaming displays, and the company just added two new products to the mix. The CU34G2 and CU34G2X both measure 34 inches across, and have a resolution of 3440x1440 (21:9) with a 1500R curvature.

Other specs shared between the two display include a 3000:1 [static] contrast ratio, 300 nits brightness rating, 1ms response time, and support for AMD FreeSync. However, there are some minor differences that separate the two. For example, the CU34G2's refresh rate tops out at 100Hz, while the CU34G2X will shimmy on up to 144Hz.

There's also an integrated 4-port USB 3.0 hub, and there are stand adjustments for height, tilt, and swivel.
