AOC Agon AG241QG & AG241QX review: remarkable gaming monitors

Modest size, grand specs

Power consumption

Nowadays monitors do not consume a lot of power, but nevertheless it is good to take a closer look at this aspect with these two models. The AOC Agon AG241QG and AG241QX are 24-inch models after all (23.8 inch to be precise), while the wqhd-competition is 27-inch. Is smaller also more economic when it comes to power consumption?

Looking at the test results this is not really the case - although both models clearly perform above average in the first graphs. If we normalize the comparison at a brightness of white of 150 cd/m², the AG241QG turns out to consume a lot more power. In absolute numbers 7 watt is of course nothing to worry about, but the Nvidia hardware turns out to be less economic than the hardware used in the AG241QX. In stand-by and off both monitors consume equal amounts of power - good to know, because monitors with G-sync sometimes consume quite a bit in stand-by.
