The new B3 line-up launches with two 23.8” (60 cm) (AOC 24B3CF2 and 24B3CA2) and two 27” (68 cm) (AOC 27B3CF2 and 27B3CA2) models featuring IPS panels and Full HD resolution.

AOC 24B3CF2: Ultra-narrow bezels, USB-C with 65 W PD
and 100 Hz refresh rate in a stylish, professional package

Tailored for diverse professional needs
Connectivity is streamlined with a USB-C 3.2 Gen 1×1 (5 Gbps) port, offering 65 W USB Power Delivery and support for DisplayPort Alt mode, therefore enabling a single-cable connection to laptops to power them and share/extend their screen simultaneously. Two additional USB-A 3.2 Gen 1×1 ports on the rear allow easy connection of peripherals such as keyboard, mouse or external drives, and the connected laptop can also access/use the peripherals via a USB-C connection..

Smooth viewing with 100 Hz refresh rate
Most users today are already familiar with high refresh rates from today’s smartphones and gaming monitors. Special to the B3 series is the 100 Hz refresh rate, a significant upgrade from standard 75 Hz monitors. This results in smoother on-screen motion, which is particularly beneficial in fast-paced work environments. Even when scrolling through a web page or a social media feed, the improvement in motion can be appreciated. The smoothness provided by the 100 Hz refresh rate helps reduce eye strain and enhances the overall viewing experience, too.

A breath of fresh air for the modern workspace
AOC’s B3 series showcases a sleek, ultra-narrow bezel design, making these monitors not only visually appealing, but also highly functional and ideal for multi-monitor setups. This design lends itself well to various professional settings, from collaborative workspaces to trading floors where seamless integration of multiple screens is essential. Even when used as a single unit, the chic appearance with ultra-narrow bezels will be not out of place in modern homes and bring a touch of futuristic flair to small/medium businesses.

Focused on user comfort
Recognising the importance of eye health in home and professional environments, the B3 monitors are equipped with LowBlue mode and Flicker-Free technology to reduce eye fatigue during long hours of work. This feature is particularly beneficial for users who spend extended periods in front of a computer screen, such as programmers, financial analysts or writers. The series includes monitors with a variety of stand adjustments – from the tilt-only 24B3CA2 and 27B3CA2 to the height-adjustable 24B3CF2 and 27B3CF2 models, catering to different ergonomic needs. The 100×100 VESA mount compatibility provides options for wall mounting or multi-monitor arm setups for increased workspace flexibility.
