Gigabyte G32QC 31.5in Curved Monitor Review

Rating: 8.5.

We've seen a couple of displays from Gigabyte over the last year, including the Aorus AD27QD and Aorus FI27Q-P – but, importantly, both are Aorus-branded models. The Gigabyte G32QC we are looking at today is not an Aorus model, and is instead part of the mainstream Gigabyte brand. Despite that, it sports a curved 31.5in VA panel, 1440p resolution and 165Hz refresh rate, so it's clearly still geared towards gamers. Priced at £420 here in the UK, could this be your next gaming display?

There's no denying the key specs of the Gigabyte G32QC are impressive – high refresh-rate 1440p panels are increasingly becoming the new standard for gaming displays, as graphics cards are more capable than ever of pushing high frame rates at the QHD resolution. Yes, we do now have 4K 144Hz screens, but even an RTX 2080 Ti is going to struggle to really make the most of one of those.

When you factor in the 1500R curved panel, alongside its support for FreeSync Premium Pro, G-Sync compatibility (albeit without Nvidia's official accreditation) and Display HDR400 certification, the G32QC really does look like an enticing proposition, especially at its price point just north of £400. We put this screen through its paces to see whether or not it can live up to its billing.
