The manufacturer Gigabyte has presented new gaming monitors for the discerning. One model uses an OLED panel and offers HDMI 2.1.
According to the press release, models with 32 (FI32U), 43 (FV43U) and even 48 inch diagonal (FO48U) are planned. All monitors in the Aorus range will offer HDMI 2.1. As a result, they should not only be suitable as a point of contact for gaming PCs. Rather, they are also predestined for connecting a Sony PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S. Gigabte advertises with “4K UHD Tactical Gaming Monitors”.
The flagship’s 48-inch OLED panel can handle up to 144 Hz with response times of just 0.5 ms. In addition, according to Gigabyte, this monitor is classified close to the VESA DisplayHDR standard in the DisplayHDR 1000 level. Accordingly, this copy has to achieve peak brightness of up to 1,000 nits. Gigabyte is currently still largely hiding further technical details. So unfortunately we have to wait a little longer.
The sibling models with 32 inches (IPS panel) and 43 inches (VA panel) are LCD models, but at least they also use HDMI 2.1. Unfortunately, we are currently missing further technical details here as well. For example, it would be interesting to know how and whether the monitors integrate VRR (Variable Refresh Rate). Presumably there should also be compatibility with Nvidia G-Sync, AMD FreeSync Premium Pro and HDMI VRR on board.
LG Display supplies the OLED panel
The OLED panel for the 48-inch model comes from LG Display and is the same that is also used in the 48-inch OLED TVs from LG. Here, however, Gigabyte has not knitted a television out of it, but a monitor. We are now very excited about the official release dates and price recommendations. Those are likely to be very high and at least outperform some TVs when it comes to OLED monitors. B. is based on Samsung’s latest gaming monitors and uses them as a benchmark.
