Gigabyte Aorus has been expanding into gaming monitors recently. We've had a look at the 1080p/144Hz CV27 ourselves but if you prefer high refresh rate 1440p gaming, then the Gigabyte Aorus CV27Q Tactical Gaming Monitor will be right up your alley.
The Gigabyte Aorus CV27Q boasts a 2560×1440 resolution, 165Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, FreeSync 2 and HDR support. FreeSync can also be activated on Nvidia GPUs now under the ‘G-Sync Compatible' setting, so this is a monitor that could serve pretty much anyone.
The CV27Q Tactical Gaming monitor incorporates a DisplayPort connection, featuring High Bit rate 3 (HBR3) technology with a total bandwidth of 32.4 Gbit/s, which allows users to enjoy QHD, 165Hz, HDR and 8-bit colour all at once. On top of that, a 1500R curve offers immersive gaming. The CV27Q’s 8-bit TN panel supports 90% of the DCI-P3 colour space, providing wide colour gamut and HDR support.
Speaking of HDR support, this is DisplayHDR 400, so you will get 400 nits of peak brightness. This is the entry level standard for HDR on PC, so it won't match up to a high-end TV but it should deliver a nice visual bump.
Another feature in the Gigabyte CV27Q is its Black Equaliser 2.0 technology, which divides the screen into 1296 sub areas and equalises each area individually. This mean you will get beautiful blacks without affecting bright areas. Gigabyte also uses ANC 2.0 technology in an exclusive IC design, which keeps environmental noise down with minimal microphone distortion.
Full height, swivel and tilt adjustments are possible with the CV27Q. Also, on the rear is a built in digital RGB LED lighting section, which can be configured using Gigabyte Fusion 2.0 app, with various colours and patterns available to create ambience. Users can show off their own creations with the multiple lighting zones being configurable independently.
The Aorus CV27Q Tactical Gaming monitor is available for pre-order now and can be purchased from OverclockersUK for £479.99.
KitGuru says: With an abundance of high refresh rate gaming monitors now available, will the Aorus CV27Q offer enough features to tempt you into an upgrade? The specs suggest It has all the qualities to make a great monitor- the price seems pretty good too.
