Gigabyte Aorus FI32Q X (1440p/240Hz) Review

Rating: 8.0.

We've seen a number of 240Hz 1440p displays hit the market over the last year, but those have mostly stuck with the tried-and-tested 27in form-factor. What if you want something that's just as fast, but also a bit bigger? That's where the Gigabyte Aorus FI32Q X comes in, offering the same 240Hz refresh rate and 2560×1440 resolution, but over a 32in panel. It also makes use of Quantum Dot technology and includes HDMI 2.1 support, potentially making it a future-proof and versatile option. But is it good enough to justify the £900 asking price? Join us as we find out…

There is no denying the Gigabyte Aorus FI32Q X is a mighty impressive screen on paper. Its combination of size, resolution and refresh rate is one thing, but we also have to factor in DisplayHDR 600 support, a claimed 1ms G2G response time, plus a KVM switch amongst other features. Indeed, the FI32Q X also supports overclocking via a one-click toggle in the OSD, allowing users to enable a 270Hz refresh rate for even smoother gaming.

Before moving onto the main body of the review, it is worth pointing out the FI32Q X is not the same as the FI32Q (non X). The FI32Q came out last year, and while the form-factor and design appears identical, the non-X tops out at a 170Hz refresh rate, doesn't offer HDMI 2.1 and is only certified for DisplayHDR 400 – so do keep an eye out for that if you're shopping for one of these displays.
