Non-congressional gaming monitor maker AOC and Porsche Design have teamed up to create exactly what one would expect from such a collaboration—an incredibly fast gaming monitor. The $800 Porsche Design AOC AGON PD27 is a 27-inch QHD monitor with a 240 Hz refresh rate, .5 millisecond response time, and a stand design inspired by a racing rollbar. I only wish it were red.

The specs on this thing are making my mouth water, especially in light of a pair of new game consoles that support 120 frames-per-second gaming. Along with all that speed, the PD27 is also VESA DisplayHDR 400 certified, supporting darker darks and brighter brights. It supports AMD FreeSync. It’s a four-port USB hub. It can also project its own logo on the surface it’s sitting on, in case that’s a thing you want.

There’s the roll cage-inspired stand, sure to protect your monitor if it falls off your desk (it will not). It’s also got one of these.

That’s a dash panel-shaped remote control. For someone like me, who positions their monitor less than an arm’s length away, that’s some excess right there. I am down for excess.

The Porsche Design AOC AGON PD27 goes on sale December 5 at select Porsche Design stores, which one imagines are on every corner, or online at the Porsche Design website, where they also sell sneakers, laptops, and luggage.

Oh wow that’s expensive.
Ok, it’s only a couple of hundred bucks more expensive than comparable screens, but why would you want a 240Hz monitor for the new consoles? Just get a 144Hz for half the price.
