More news coming from CES 2020! Gigabyte Technology Co. Ltd has announced three new monitors from their Aorus Gaming line: the G27F, G27QC, G32QC. The QC model monitors offer curved panels at 1440p resolution (Quad HD or QHD), whereas the F model will retain the flat panel design and keeping to the base 1080p resolution. All monitors come with G-SYNC, and FreeSync* (improved performance on higher tiered models) This is Gigabyte’s second year into the gaming monitor business, coming off from their successful launch last year with the AD27QD Tactical Gaming monitor which had won an award at Computex.
Monitor, an unseen key player in the gaming system
As Gigabyte put it, while the upgrades made to CPUs or GPUs (and even RAM) is usually the first step in trying to catch-up or fix performance issues with whatever gamers play. While the game’s performance increase with hardware upgrades, players might not be able to see the actual improvements on screen as older performing monitors capped at 60Hz would not be able to show a game’s smoother performance. Hence their belief that by having a higher performing monitor will synergize better with these upgrades. Gigabyte Aorus Gaming Monitors are high spec peripherals that will not necessarily break a gamer’s bank.
GIGABYTE Auto-Update, your monitor can be a bit smarter
Gigabyte seeks to improve user experience by including features to these Aorus Monitors such as:
- Black Equalizer – controls the shadow of objects in-game by enhancing contrast and improve dark scenes in-game without affecting brightly lit areas
- Aim Stabilizer – reduces motion blur from occurring onscreen
- GameAssist – an overlay that allows gamers to customize crosshairs, as well as provide other info such as a counter, timer, and alignment lines to better adjust alignment of multiple screens.
Other than these features, all monitors will come with an auto-update functionality which will keep everything in top form and reduce the need for owners to manually download and update. Gigabyte will continue providing updates in order to give extra protection to the monitor.
“We’re very glad to find that gamers love our AORUS gaming monitors. We received much positive feedback for our tactical features and they really make a difference in the market. For the new GIGABYTE gaming series lineup, GIGABYTE offers high quality with high specifications at a competitive price range and we certainly will continue to bring more exclusive and brilliant features to the market.” said Jackson Hsu, Director of the GIGABYTE Product Development Division in a statement regarding the new Aorus Gaming Monitors being launched.
